    Very cool. I don't have need for an organ controller, but i think all manufacturers should take a shot at the folding keyboard thing.  Anything that makes things more portable is a step in the right direction!

      Wow! That is very interesting. What's the action like on it? Does it have a USB MIDI out on it for plugging directly into a laptop with VB3? Any plans for a single keyboard version that's even more compact?

           It has a midi out ... but works very nicely with VB3 software ... The action are waterfall keys, organ action... but that can be adjusted according to what the buyer wants...  No single version, just the double... however we can talk if you private email me, and perhaps work something out ...

      The controls being below (and to the right of) the lower manual could be a problem for some. Kind of hard to adjust that while playing a chord in the upper octaves of the lower manual.

        the control panel can be customized on either side... I like it on the right because when you're playing bass with your left hand its easier to move controls with my right ... however, it is customizeable...

      Very cool. How much does it weigh? Too bad the top manual is so high off the lower manual, and that the controls are on the lower right. Middle would be best (but I see the problem there), and left, next best. Except for folks playing left hand bass, of course ... which may be why they're on the right.

      Perfect for someone who needs to travel via the Metro, though! Very clever design.

        it weighs 25 lbs ... as you said, I put the lower manual on the right for people who play left hand bass... however the control panel can be easily placed on the left as well... the height of the top manual above the lower is not a nuisance... I use this rig on all my gigs and I'm one of the top jazz organists on the scene today...

         

         

            thanks for the interest...
