The MS8410 is a feature-rich device that converts divisional keying, expression, console registration and temperature into MIDI messages for use with a digital sound module. Using the organ console, the organ builder can configure the MS8410 to operate with many different types of sound modules. The configuration information can be backed up to a USB drive for quick restoration if the MS8410 ever needs to be replaced.

MIDI notes can be transposed up or down by two octaves
First and last keys for MIDI conversion are settable for bass extensions (allows coupling and transposition beyond the scope of the keyboard)

Organ expression shoes can control either MIDI volume or MIDI expression
Master volume can be set on each MIDI channel
MIDI stops can be locked out and hidden for permanent sound modules
Organists can assign and change unlocked MIDI stops quickly from the console
Stops can be converted to messages that pipe organ sound modules will recognize (Call for a list of approved sound modules)
A temperature sensor (CS6404) can be added to automatically tune a MIDI device
Tuning can be controlled without a temperature sensor by using a pot on the MS8401
