OrganAssist is a free program that provides a simple way of using MIDI to record, edit and translate music played on classical (church) organs. OrganAssist works with both digital organs and pipe organs equipped with a MIDI interface.
OrganAssist is a software sequencer that is specifically designed for editing performances recorded on organs. It is also capable of automatically translating all recordings into MIDI to play on ANY other digital or pipe organ complete with all registration and expression. This is limited only by the capabilities of the instrument being used – all that is required is a MIDI interface. This includes full support for complex MIDI implementations like Rodgers and Peterson among others.
