„Organ Session“ emulates the sound of a Drawbar Organ in the Yamaha MONTAGE.
To emulate the drawbars of a Drawbar Organ the best way, samples have been taken chromatically. This 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 multi samples of drawbars and organ-percussion there are also samples of some popular registrations like Full Organ, First Three, First Four, Even Bars or registrations with vibrato. Using multi samples of complete registrations allow complex Organ sounds with a limited number of voice elements. All sample recordings were taken without using amplifier, distortion and rotary speaker. This allows flexible usage of the effect section and realistic switching between slow and fast using the internal Rotary Speaker effect.
While MONTAGE ROM-Waveforms had to use very short loops due to optimized usage of Wave ROM space, this product has no limitations. The samples and loops are much longer than the preset waveforms, which allows a way more realistic hammond sound.
In addition the chromatic sampling produces a different sound of the key click for each note. This behaves exactly like a real Drawbar Organ.
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 not triggering percussion.
The Performances of Organ Session are offering wonderful punchy and "smacky" Organ Sounds with concisely key click and adjustable percussion, Rock organs 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 provides a huge selection of typical Hammond Sounds, which can be used very flexible:
The sliders can be used like the drawbars of the Drawbar Organ.
The rotary speed 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 real time.
All typical organ adjustments can be controlled quick and directly from the Performance Play Mode. This allows intuitive sound changes in seconds!
Comparing "Organ Session" and "Live Organ"
Like "Organ Session“ the product "Live Organ" alsoemulates the sound of a Drawbar Organ in MONTAGE. However, the sampling concept of "Live Organ" is different. In order to achieve the highest possible authenticity the samples already contain the Slow / Fast Rotary and the typical organ distortion. The internal effects of the MONTAGE such as Rotary Speaker or Distortion are not required for this type of tone generation.
The new MONTAGE version of "Organ Session" offers a significant increased amount of 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:
- Rotary speaker effect allows speed control (slow/fast) at any time.
- The intensity of the distortion effect can be changed in real time.
- The drawbars can be controlled with the sliders.
The MONTAGE-version of this soundlibrary is based on the same product for the Yamaha MOTIF-series. Over and above that, this version was significantly newly developed using new features of MONTAGE like Super Knob and other features of the Motion Control Synthesis Engine.
This sound library requires MONTAGE operating system OS v1.10 or higher.
