52 User-Waveforms / 155 MB Samples
„Organ Session“ emulates the sound of a Hammond B3 in the Yamaha MONTAGE.
For emulating the drawbars of a Hammond B3 were sampled chromatic. That means recording one sample for each note of each of the 9 drawbars for 5 octaves. A User waveform of one drawbar includes 61 samples. Additional there are several chromatic sampled organ-percussion settings.
Beside multisamples of drawbars and organ-percussion there are also samples of some popular B3 registrations like Full Organ, First Three, First Four, Even Bars or registrations with C3 vibrato. Using multisamples of complete registrations are allowing complex Hammond-Sounds with a limited number of voice elements. All sample recordings were done without using amplifier, distortion and leslie. This allows flexible using of the MOTIF XF effect section and realistic switching between slow and fast leslie using the Rotary effect.
While the MONTAGE ROM-Waves had to use very short loops because of limited Wave ROM-space, this product had no limitations. The samples and loops are much longer than the preset-waves, which allows a much more realistic hammond sound.
And the chromatic sampling produces a different sound of the key click for each note like you know it from a real Hammond B3.
Also the organ-percussion is shaped very authentic using the USER-LFO for realizing the „Single Trigger Mode“ in many performances. That means legato played notes are using no percussion.
Additional to the B3-samples you will find also some sampled registrations of the legendary Hammond A100.
The performances of Organ Session are offering wonderful punchy and smacky Hammond Sounds with consisely key click and adjustable percussion, rockorgans with slightly or strong distortion, traditional entertainer organs, classic drawbar-registrations and cool jazz-organs.
Organ Session is very useful for Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, House, Entertainment or Ambient music. The product is providing a huge selection of typical Hammond Sounds, which can be used very fexible:
The sliders can be used like the drawbars of the Hammond-organ.
The Rotary speed (Leslie) can be switched between slow and fast using the Modulation Wheel, the Assignable Knob 1, the Super Knob or a connected Foot Control pedal (FC2).
Using the Assignable Knobs 2 – 8 more parameter like Percussion, Overdrive or Reverb can be controlled in realtime.
All typical Hammond ajustments can be controlled quick and directly from the Play Mode. This allows intuitive sound changings in seconds!
Comparing "Organ Session" and "Live Organ"
Like "Organ Session“ also the product "Live Organ" emulates the sound of a Hammond B3 in MONTAGE. However, the sampling concept of "Live Organ" is different. In order to achieve the highest possible authenticity and the original Hammond feel, the samples already contain the Slow / Fast Leslie and the typical Hammond distortion. The internal effects of the MONTAGE such as Rotary Speaker or Distortion are not required for this type of sampling.
The new MONTAGE version of "Organ Session" offers a significant increase in authenticity due to the improved distortion and rotary effects compared to the MOTIF version. The "Organ Session" has considerable advantages over "Live Organ" in the area of flexibility:
- With the Leslie (Rotary) the speeding up and down is available.
- The intensity of the distortion effect can be changed in realtime.
- The drawbars can be controlled with the sliders.
