Love My Numa OrganI'm having a lot of fun with the numa organ. I play blues and jazz standards and its very gratifying to play. One day I became puzzled as I noticed the organ sounded a little better than usual and so I looked at my settings to see what I had done to improve the sound. I suddenly realized that I had mistakenly swapped out a set
of cheap cables for an expensive set of monster cables I was using on another keyboard. That was an education. But yeah, very happy with this.

Amazing soundsThis is my first Hammond clone. Up 'til now, I've relied on my synth to make the organ noises, and told myself that the multi-tasker makes a lot more sense. And, for gigs where I need to be the organist, horn section, strings, etc. that's still true. But, I have always loved the Hammond sound and the ability to tweak the sounds on the fly, something I couldn't do with my Fantom.
Everything about this unit is great. The waterfall keyboard is responsive and comfortable. It begs for smears and slides. And the sound! It's all a matter of personal taste,but it sounds better to me than anything from Korg, Roland, Nord or even Hammond. Big, full sounds and I didn't need to buy a Ventilator to get the Leslie effect. Nice.
The control layout is very much like a real Hammond. Sliders don't click like real drawbars do, but the effect and response are spot on, and the onboard Leslie speed/brake control works like the half-moon switch on the real deal. (There's a Leslie connector on the back panel if you have real cabinet to play through. I don't.) My only quibble is the lack of contrasting markings on the drawbars or Chorus/Vibrato switch. Easily remedied with a little white nail polish, but still . . .
Lightweight package. great feel, amazing sounds. I'm loving it.

The Real DealI've owned organ emulators for years, and I've tried them all. I've also owned studio logic gear for years, and never would have thought they could build something that sounds like this. Joey D's taste, artistry and love for the organ is craftily built into a great feeling keyboard. It's true you can't tweak many of the cabinet parameters like on some other boards, but what comes stock is so crazy good I haven't felt the need to change anything. It growls, screams, howls, and it's over-all warmth and authenticity raises plenty of eye-brows. I can't tell you how many people come up to me after the gig is over, wanting to know what on earth I'm playing that sounds so much like a B3.
