Default Kimball organ conversion

Hi, i have a kimball organ model 531 and was trying to see if its possible to use one of the midi boards sold here to convert it over? The organ still works and want to be able to use the stock speaker system built in if possible. I really don't know where to start and if its even possible with this organ.

Having both keyboards and the bass pedals setup to midi would be nice but just the keyboards would work fine.Added a few pictures of it too.

Hi Jae, welcome to the forum. Generally speaking, the answer is yes. To use the MIDI CPU, you'll have to disconnect the manuals from the original sound-generating circuitry of the organ.

If you want to use the internal speakers, then you could route the output from a MIDI sound module (or computer) back to the internal amplifier.

There are plenty of organ projects here on the forum. Use the Google custom search box to see what is there. If you create a project thread, we can discuss more details.
