Electone Fs 200 Yamaha Manual

The manual mentions the compatibility with Clavinova performances as well, but in 1984 no Clavinova had support for disk operations or even data connections. Since the MDR1B comes with extra wiring and boards to add data support, it may be assumed such operation was also possible on some Clavinova models.

Wow! My Dad paid $20,000 for this organ in the 1980s. Yamaha Electone FS-500. Organ and bench are walnut, fantastic condition, everything works perfect. Comes with bench, original owner's manual and lots of organ books. This thing sounds fantastic. Cash only, you transport. Ludington, Michigan. ...

Beautiful Yamaha Electone FS 200 Organ. Beautiful all original finish. All the bells and whistles. Bring a truck and 2 people to help load. Matching Bench with storage. Operation manual included! ...

So I have a friend who's a pastor in a house church. A couple years ago, I suggested to him that he look on Craigslist for an organ for his church (living room), since he was just using a cheap keyboard, and often people will list organs for cheap (or free) if you can get the monster out of their house. He's a professional home improvement contractor, so that kind of moving is not difficult for him. After several adventures, we found a guy who was willing to donate his near-mint Yamaha Electone FX-20 to the church, and we moved it in. I had a lot of fun with it! Now the pastor's family is moving to Ireland, and getting rid of their house... and they need to get rid of the organ. However, I can neither fit an organ in my house (I'm an engineering grad student living with other students), nor can I get the organ from his house to mine (800 km away). However, he has a friend who wants to turn the organ cabinet into a writing desk... so I get all the guts! I'm on my way to visit the city he lives in, and I have a couple days to carefully dismantle the organ and ship all the parts back home. I already built a wooden keyboard stand with (the photos there are not up to date), and I will modify it to hold the manuals and the organ's electronics. For now, I will hook an external audio output to my mixer and monitors, instead of using the original (quite nice) integrated speakers. The Electone FX-20 has 2.5 manuals (all with velocity and aftertouch) and pedals, a large control panel (including motorfaders on all sliders, and drawbars for the Hammond-like section), a basically-uncountable number of operators of FM synthesis (around 50 voices and 200+ operators), and an auto rhythm/accompaniment section, all made with the best 1983 technology. However, it doesn't have MIDI output, pitch bend, mod wheel, octave buttons for the main manuals, etc. So a custom controller is necessary! I have gotten the information I needed from (especially ), and from the service manual for the FX-20 which I was able to order from Yamaha for $16. Based on the project here, I've designed a board which "sniffs" the manual and panel interfaces from the organ's own controller, and spits out MIDI messages corresponding. I decided not to use mios32, because all of the timing has to be synchronized to the organ, the panel SPI has to operate in slave mode, and I need very many I/O pins to scan the matrix interface to the manuals (a shift register scheme would likely not be fast enough). I settled on an Atmel ATxmega128A1 on the mikroXMEGA development board, for the number of I/O pins, the relatively low price, no SMT soldering, and the fact that I've used the Atmel ATmega series (similar) in school. Programming will be with Atmel Studio via JTAG with a AVR JTAGICE MK II that I was able to obtain. I decided on assembler for fast speed and ease of configuring multiple hardware/software interrupts--no FreeRTOS here! Features:

My custom processor board is up and running, and connected to the organ's main serial bus. It's just flashing LEDs for now, but hopefully soon it will be converting manual scan data into MIDI messages.

As you can see, this is not a MIDIbox; it contains no MIDIbox code. The processor is an Atmel ATXmega128A1 (32MHz)--the top of the 8-bit line. No MIDIbox MCU had enough I/O pins for the manual scan, and reading them with shift registers might not be fast enough. 041b061a72
