This is a model of a B3 Hammond organ.

It contains 91 modeled tonewheels and is fully polyphonic.

It includes calibrated drawbars, harmonic foldback, percussion, key click, overdrive, a scanner, and a stereo simulator.

The drawbars are calibrated in 3dB steps, just like a real Hammond. So if you have a registration you like, such as 88 8000 054, you can just match the drawbars in the ensemble to the numbers in the registration.

The snapshots include the complete sets of Standard and Theatrical Hammond presets supplied with the original instruments, both Great and Swell, two complete sets of presets designed by organist Paul Schnellbecher for church and recital work, and a handful of others.

This replaces my earlier Hammy ensemble, which used a 9-oscillator-per-voice synthesizer architecture instead of modeling individual tonewheels. I was never happy with the oscillator phase cancellation in that instrument. This new version fixes that, at the cost of significantly more CPU resources.

Thanks. A nother fine ensemble from you Chet. However this one seems to have a little flaw. I can't find the acceleration to the rotor. It goes on and of, but directly without acceleration and deacceleration. You usely have these details in place. Still a high end ensemble.

What an awesome instrument. Thank you for taking the time to create a sound that is so close to the original that it is 99.99% identical. Well done indeed.

Sounds great, I may be missing this but, Is there a way to control the speed of the rotor? But...Very Nice !
