Are the piston controls the same for the style 150?

My guess is yes except for pistons that don't exist on the 150. Just try it and let us all know for sure. You can't do any harm by trying.

computer keyboard for the style 150
solo pistons-f-1 to f-10, acc pistons 1-0 ,enter= res ,+= mem, ]= MAP,\=set, page down= trem can,end= pedal cancel, home = solo can, page up acc cancel , q= sleigh bells, w= horse hoves ,e = burlesque whistle,r- birds,t= auto horn ,y= telephone bell,i= train whistle,o= gong,p= drum
I found an older computer keyboard with a real circuitboard and switches and removed the switches and soldered wires leading to the pistons for an easy combination action . I hope this helps someone
