Genuine Soundware has released version 1.1.0 of its VB3-II virtual organ instrument.

GSi VB3-II is the result of almost 15 years of study, research, experimentation and development of the simulation of a vintage Hammond B3 organ. It is the evolution of the GSi VB3 v1.x with a new sound, a new parameter set, endless possibilities of sound customization.

It’s not a simple update to an old software, it’s a whole new product. It’s based on the same sound engine that was written first for the Hamichord Organ, then for the Crumar Mojo, and is also found in the Crumar Mojo61 and in the GSi Gemini.

The update comes with a spring reverb effect, additional parameters for the rotary simulator, a new tube overdrive algorithm and a separate GSiRotary plugin is now included.

GSi Rotary

Starting from version 1.1.0 released in September 2018, GSi VB3-II comes with a separate Rotary effect plugin/standalone that can be used with any audio source and is based on the same rotary effect built into VB3-II. It’s called GSiRotary and is free for all VB3-II registered users.

Changes in VB3-II v1.1.0

  • GSiRotary, a Rotary Speaker emulation effect free to VB3-II registered users, available in 64-bit VST2, VST3, AU (OS X only) and Standalone for both Windows and OS X.
  • Added Spring Reverb effect, which is connected before the Rotary Simulator and can be used along with the digital reverb.
  • Added 7 new parameters to the Rotary Simulator.
  • New Tube Overdrive algorithm with an exclusive feature called “Tube feedback”.

VB3-II (VST/VST3/AU/Standalone) is available for 100 EUR ex. VAT where applicable.
