8Dio has announced the release of Hammond Vintage Organ, a Studio Vintage Series instrument for Kontakt that offers a faithful representation of a B2 – B3 Hybrid Hammond Organ.
Having toured with some of the industries finest musicians and featured on a magnitude of headline festival stages, this work of art deserved to be archived and available for all to play.
This hybrid Hammond® Organs tone and color are indicitive to the era. With a timbre so raw and pure it is simply unmatchable.
While many other attempts at capturing factory standard Hammonds® in the past featured heavily on the Direct signal (D.I). We instead purposely chose to record the Organ in it’s natural state. Using vintage and immaculately maintained Leslie cabinets. In fact we used two independent Leslie’s, (and blew up a third). One to capture the genre defining rotations at all speeds, and another with a modified motor to record the pure unhindered tone of the Leslie itself.
Both of these Leslie’s are available within the 8Dio Vintage Organ. “Analog” showcases the natural acoustics of the Hammond® Leslie and its expressive spinning states. Whereas “Modelled“ highlights the static, non spinning, pure timbre of the Leslie cabinet. Instead with a virtual rotation applied. This allows you to choose the tone and workflow that best suits you.
