Thanks again Corky, my cyber hammond God ! Last question : will the Mojo give me the ability for controlling sliders to adjust thé VST instruments volumes through Cantabile ? For instance with Mojo s lower drawbars ? Thanks very much for your clever point of view :grin:

As long as they transmit MIDI it will. I will check the Mojo specs shortly, and get back to you. I am like 99% sure it does, but always best to be sure before dropping a dime.

Here are the MIDI specs:

> • 6 – Midi Out connection: Output 5 poles DIN.
> Through this output you can connect a MIDI device receiving midi data from the
> organ. Controls, as production standards, are configured this way:
> Channel 1 : Drawbars, pots, and all other controls; upper manual.
> Channel 2 : Lower manual.
> Channel 3 : Lower manual if “Pedal to Lower” function is on.
> CAUTION: It is highly recommended not to connect or disconnect midi cables
> with the instrument on. The instrument can be damaged or work in wrong way.
> • 7 – **USB output: through this output is it possible to connect CRUMAR MOJO to a**
> computer without needing of converter. It is useful in case you would like to play
_> softwares or sounds inside a computer connected to the instrument. Please check_
> driver and software compatibility first

Looks like it will do what you need it to do.

Something about the Oxygen 49…there is a setting to adjust keys on the way you play. It made a big difference, once I discovered it.

Thanks for the advise, Corky ! Did you manage to set your Line 6 pedal to control thé rotary speed and thé swell pedal with thé same foot ?!! If you did, what s the mode please ?


#868

Sorry for delayed response. The Line 6 I use has 4 switches, and a volume/swell/wah pedal. I can use it to do many things, in different songs. A switch can be used to change Leslie speeds, and the volume pedal as a swell pedal. It is basically a controller sending MIDI commands.


#869

Good ! Seems to be a very good product… Very Interesting, thanks Corky.


#870

That’s a cool pedal option :slight_smile:

More compact than my Roland FC300s (I have two, one as a spare) which I am totally wedded to, but if you needed something smaller, looks like these will do the trick quite nicely


#871

It does! It fits very well under my rig next to a sustain pedal. I wouldn’t mind having more switches at my feet, but honestly, I find myself using duplicate bindings on my keyboard switches, pads, etc. So many years using a half moon switch on a Hammond makes the mod wheel feel natural. I tried, many times, getting used to a sustain pedal for Leslie speed, but always migrated back to mod wheel. When using my pedal, I found it easier to remove my shoes so I can feel the switches out. No more awkward looking at my feet while playing. :smirk:


#872

Ah, somebody else who takes his shoes off when playing! :slight_smile:

I get funny looks from my band mates, but I do not feel so clumsy when bare footed. I must admit to extravagance and use one of the FC300 foot pedals for Leslie speed as I naturally rest my right foot on it, and I have another two pedals for swell and general volume duties in addition to five foot switches if needed. And then the FC300 patch pedals are used for patch selection, which means I can change patches in songs whilst playing (and with smooth sound transitions, the switch is seamless).

Thanks for posting that. I’m not a keys player but still have the original NI B3 and B3 II from back when I used them in sequences. Now that I’m getting back into music and looking for something more convincing, listening to your examples makes it clear IK is the way to go for the cab. IK’s organ sounds good too, so not much reason not to buy their bundled solution imo. The B5 with its own cab isn’t much of an upgrade to the NI imo… Thanks again for the post, it saved a lot of effort downloading and demoing!
