All of the tonewheel organs sound different, each of them has a particular voicing, and that's mostly due to the distance between the tonewhels and pickups but also to the aging of the capacitors.
With the help of Kon Zissis, who has been servicing and measuring organs for many years, we were able to incorporate 150 unique organ voicings from many different models (A, AV, B, B2, C2, BA, BC , CV, B3, C3, A100, RT3 and a few others).
We also sampled 4 iconic models (1968 B-3, 1960 C-3, 1969 C-3 and 1965 A-100) whose different tonewheel sounds you can switch between.
The combination of tweaking of the voicings with manual tapering options allows you to shape virtually any organ model and sound possible.
On top of our Leslie tube saturation, we added a panel of 7 FX.
It includes chorus, phaser, delay, overdrive, fuzz, wah (which can also be an auto-wah) and reverb (spring, plate and real room variations).
These FX are pre-Leslie, except for the reverb, which can be pre or post.
Now you can truly recreate the sound of any organ or song, including progressive rock!
The tube saturation on a Leslie 122 is very different from what you hear from other tube amps.
We completely redesigned it in version 3 to match real recordings even more accurately.
The percussion on an organ is not just an addition of samples, it is a general volume decay envelope triggered by the first note you play, which is not restarted until you release all the keys.
We recreated it so meticulously that you can hear a percussion sound when you turn it on or change from second to third! You can even customize the time, volume and frequency to make it sound like "paradise".
It is also completely tweakable: you can edit the volume for the normal and soft settings (as well as decay times), decide on which harmonic is played and even control the recharge time.
B-5 Organ V3 comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.1.6 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.14 or later intel or arm processor) and PC (windows 10 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / VST3 / AU / AAX ) and in 64 bits only. You can find more info about it here.
UVI Workstation v3.0.15 (delivered with every purchase) or Falcon 2.1.1 is required for the library to function properly.
900Mb compressed in lossless flac format, around 1800 samples for each tonewheel model.
