App Description

Hammond B-3X is a next-level tonewheel organ app that gives you incredibly realistic sound & features. We’ve partnered with the Hammond Organ Company and Suzuki Musical Instruments to create the most immersive, authentic and powerful B-3 experience for use live on stage or as a plug-in inside recording apps.

The sound starts with 91 free-running tonewheels, based on meticulously-maintained real organs, and mixes those in real-time based on the notes played and the drawbar levels. Our advanced modeling recreates the tonal filtering, key click, percussion and chorus-vibrato circuits to recreate the organic feel of the real instrument and give you deep control over every element of the sound.

The organ feeds a 5-unit STOMPS section with overdrive, graphic EQ, chorus-vibrato, wah and spring reverb pedals to recreate the widest range of iconic sounds.

The CABS section gives you the choice of 5 Leslie amps and 7 speakers with control over speed, acceleration/deceleration, mic placement, gain, EQ and volume. For rock & blues, add the parallel guitar amp into the mix with two models from AmpliTube, with full tone-shaping controls and spring reverb.

A mixer lets you blend the sound of the Leslie, the parallel guitar amp and DI organ sound. 3 studio effects post-mixer let you put a final polish on your tone.

For live use, a “Controls” view hides the keyboard and enlarges the drawbars and switches for less distraction while playing. And there’s included MIDI assignments for controllers and Hammond digital organs, making it plug-and-play easy to perform.

Hammond B-3X for iPad also supports the latest Audio Units plug-in format, letting you use it inside all the most popular recording apps.
