Proof of Concept - Midi Organ Bass Pedals

Here is a proof of concept of a project I've been wanting to do for a little now. I took a set of pedals from an old Hammond M2 organ and have wired them into an Arduino programmable micro controller. A friend helped me do the coding for the Arduino and it now sends Midi out. In the video I am using a free VST. The pedals will eventually be finished and used with a Roland VK-8 Clonewheel organ. You can see videos of the organ on my youtube site. Also, eventually I will have a second manual that will be able to have the original keyboard mounted on it.

When I am done with the project I will post a link to either an instructable or a further post with more details and the sketch (arduino code).
