More FPGA Organs
The Vox Jaguar was a lower model organ that Vox put out. It features a much simpler design, for example, each key only has one switch, instead of each key having multiple switches fed into multiple audio busses like the Continental. It also only has 4 possible harmonics and thats only on certain keys.
From looking at the schematic, it appears the Jaguar only generated 44 tones, which is possible from my FPGA dev board. Also the wiring is a little less complicated, also I have a keyboard removed from a broken synth which I could use for keys.
Also, I could add dividers later on if I wanted to add more keys or harmonics, etc.
