I'm not a real keyboardist or organ player, but I can say the sounds are incredibly good. Not sure if it's possible to turn off the tool tips, which can get annoying, and instances do not save to Reaper, i.e. after closing Reaper the plug-in reverts to its default, unlike most plug-ins. This can also be annoying.

Version reviewed: 1.1.1 on Mac

The VB3 v1.1.1 is an extremely versatile organ with a very good sounding Leslie and very low CPU load.
Unfortunately, some parameters are stored globally, so they are not stored in a patch.
This already limits the use in a DAW very much.
There will probably be no improvement, because the support does not respond despite repeated requests.
Therefore only 2 stars.
