Rotary Organ was sampled from a Hammond M3 tonewheel Organ. The tip aim was to simulate the sound of a Hammondnd B3 organ with rotating Leslie Speaker within a VST/AU/AAX plugin. Each drawbar on each be aware was sampled individually through the organ’s built-in speaker by means of a Neumann TLM 102 microphone.
The sign was re-amped although a Fender Deluxe Reverb and recorded through a Sennheiser e906. Each alerts have been run by means of Grace M101 preamps. A Hammond M3 Organ combines the final two harmonics right into a single drawbar, this be aware was omitted. As a substitute, a “digital foldback” teqchnique was used to increase the harmonics of the Hammond M3 to be much like that of a Hammond B3.
The organ’s vary was augmented to be much like that of a Hammond B3. This was completed through the use of the Organ’s pedal tones so as to add the decrease octave notes.
The Leslie Speaker simulation was designed to imitate an actual Leslie. The sign is cut up to a digital backside rotor and digital higher rotor at round 600 Hz. Vibrato, refrain, and panning processing are used to simulate the rotation of the rotors. The higher rotor spins between 48/409 RPM’s and the underside rotor spins between 40/354 RPM’s. Backside rotor rotation might be bypassed. The Leslie simulation can be bypassed.
B3 results the place additionally digitally simulated and these embrace percussion, vibrato, and key click on. Vibrato scanner is much like that of a B3 and consists of vibrato in addition to vibrato+refrain. Key click on was simulated by including random noise to the assault and launch samples. Some key click on might be heard within the unique samples however the impact has been exaggerated. Percussion was simulated in VST as it’s in actual life: the next amplitude, percussive decaying sound is added to the instrument through the 2nd or third harmonic. The plugin additionally consists of reverb, braking, variable acceleration, drive/distortion, smoothing, adjustable stereo panning, key-splitting, and preset switching. Model 2.Zero additionally consists of amplifier sims based mostly on vacuum tube simulations and speaker EQ curves. An additional drawbar has additionally been added to the organ between the 4th and fifth drawbars (x), equal to the fifth harmonic of the sub-fundamental or a three 1/5′ pipe size.
The instrument was equalized to sound barely extra aggressive than a typical Hammond organ and subsequently has the potential to face out extra in a mixture. This may be adjusted with the “smoothing” knob, which can attenuate among the harsher frequencies, and (in model 2.0) the sleek/vivid change and angle knob.
Contained in the VST the amp and speaker alerts undergo preamp/achieve staging whether or not or not the Leslie bypass is engaged. The plugin requires a good CPU – not less than an Intel Core I3. It’s because internally every harmonic is being summed for every be aware – which might embrace issues like percussion and key click on – which means that every be aware requires upwards of 22 voices. Internally the VST is capped at 330 voices, which is equal to 15 notes of polyphony. The voicelist additionally requires further processing energy, as in contrast to a piano or different percussive instrument, every be aware might be sustained indefinitely, and thus newer notes should work round this limitation.
The plugin additionally does a good quantity of inner eq and sonic shaping relying on the preset. A substantial amount of time was spent experimenting and discovering helpful drawbar settings and eq combos, and vacuum tube sims. There are 95 built-in presets modeled after traditional Hammond Organ drawbar settings and well-known songs.
The reminiscence footprint of the plugin is round 400 MB. All the plugin’s samples are loaded into reminiscence upon loading because the plugin is primarily comprised up of looped samples, padded out with quick assault and launch samples. Because of this this explicit plugin shouldn’t be depending on a quick onerous drive because it doesn’t have to buffer samples throughout execution.
The plugin is designed to work with VST AU and AAX native variations and a Kontakt model was not created. It’s because the plugin depends closely on inner programming – for every thing from the Leslie simulation, to pattern fold-back, to hoover tube sims – that might be unimaginable to copy with the Kontakt participant’s easy scripting language.
This VST is, primarily, a hybrid between a Hammond M3 and B3 with a extra aggressive sound. It’s meant to sound a bit distinctive to already present plugins and simulations, however with the wide selection of parameter combos, many sounds are doable.
