BUILDING YOUR OWN PIPE ORGAN ?
Building computer-controlled Pipe Organs is very much easier than building trackers.
You don't need complex machanical parts, but only magnets which are directly linked to a
direct power interface. This power interface is linked to a PC. You can purchase refurbished pipes by organbuilders and tune them again.
This task is not easy, mainly for small and large pipes. Romantic pipes like harmonic flutes is particularly difficult.
Usefull advices can be done by professionnal organbuilders and voicing specialists. (those who sell their pipes for example)
