Pipe Organ Control Systems

Organ Console
Pipe organ

MI-Control AS builds and supplies advanced control systems for pipe organs to the Norwegian Organ Workshop and Åkerman & Lund Organ Building company. Together we have developed a modern system for controlling a classical pipe organ digitally. The system is scalable from simple small to large complex installations. The organ may consist of one or more consoles and organs. It can also be hybrid organs. Several additions can be integrated through MIDI functionality.

The control system is based on open PC based control technology from Beckhoff automation and is only built with standard industrial components from leading suppliers such as Phoenix, Festo, Rittal, etc. This provides superior quality and flexibility for the customers.

We have used world-leading technologies such as TwinCAT 3, EtherCAT and HTML5 based Web UI to provide the best performance possible. Installation is simplified through extensive use of bus (EtherCAT) based communication. A customized phone app has been developed for organists and service personnel. Service and upgrading of new software / features can be done via VPN.

Deliveries may include:

  • Digital control of all console functions
  • Digital control of all organ functions
  • Combination (Registration) system
  • Systems may contain distributed consoles and organs
  • Carillon system can be integrated through the MIDI output of the control system
  • MIDI connection for integrating external keyboards
  • MIDI integration towards the Hauptwerk Virtual organ
