I'm a great Hammond fan! When I was a younger teenager it always sounds like lame solo entertainers for me. But then I became a fan of Rockmusic and realized all that weird an agressive tonewhell organ sounds...Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, The Doors, Genesis...wow. A few years ago I discovered the wonders of MIDI and began to make music as a hobbiest. In the beginning the possibilities seems overwhelming, so much to learn but so much fun too. I nearly went crazy when I saw that all musical instruments on this planet are available as VST plugins too. One of the first VSTi's I've tested were the Iliades Freeware Organs and I was excited. What great pieces of software. Later I began to check out the commercial VST's too and decided to buy Arturias V-Collection because of all the legendary synths in this collection. After weeks of just playing around with Oberheim, ARP, Prophet and other synths I realized just now the B3 and gave it a try and so the love story began. It looks simply great, the GUI is scalable so it even looks great on 40 inches in full size...if you want the feeling of having the original monster in your studio. :D It sounds like the original, I don't know who dares to claim that he hears a difference. Only analog fanatics I think. For me the Arturia B3 is like having an original Hammmond plus a nice effect section and fantastic digital improvements (e.g. delay, flanger, convolution verb, compressor, step sequencer...) without sacrificing a sack of money and half the space of your room.
