From Our Research Team:
Huge Tone Wheel Sound and Feel, Tiny Box!The new V5+ tone wheel organ module is the latest in a series of highly accurate B-3 tone wheel organ simulators. The V5+ uses the latest generation of Voce's digital tonewheel technology from the highly acclaimed V5 Tone Wheel Organ Synthesizer.
Voce V5+ Tone Wheel Organ Module at a Glance:
Intuitive, authentic sounding tone wheel organ module
If you love the sound of tone wheel organs but don't have the resources - or the muscle power - to carry a 425-pound behemoth to the gig, then Voce's V5+ is definitely for you! The V5+ combines a handy set of MIDI drawbars and the tone generator architecture of the V5 into one compact sound module, the same size as the original Voce MIDI Drawbar unit. The V5+ features an intuitive, easy to use interface including all essential controls for playing a tone wheel organ. There are no complicated multifunction controls or complicated programming schemes.
Compact drawbar console with additional controls
The V5+ includes 9 drawbars for authentic control over harmonics and tone. On top of the console are straightforward controls for Volume, Key Click, Overdrive and tone wheel Leakage, as well as Chorus, Vibrato and Percussion settings. The V5+ also lets you save up to 7 programs consisting of drawbar settings, effects, and split settings, all making the V5+ the ultimate "performance" tone wheel organ module. Just attach the V5+ to your keyboard, hook it up to your sound system, and play!
New, improved verson with updated Chorus and Percussion sounds
Improvements realized in the V5+ over the V5 are in the depth and quality of its Chorus effect and new Percussion updates. The overall Percussion level is higher in the V5+, and the Normal selection for the Percussion volume decreases the drawbar level, the same way as on the original B-3. The result is a great sounding module in a compact package, at a great low price.

For authentic organ sound and drawbar control, go for the Voce V5+!

B3 IN A FIST
by ROBERT NUCKELS from SAN RAFAEL, CA, USAThis unit should satisfy your basic B3 needs (with the exception of Rotary Simulation. For THAT, you'll need either a Voce SPIN II, or a VENTILATOR, OR, as in my case, a MOTION SOUND PRO 3X on top o... read more [+]f a ROLAND KC 350, OR 550, PLUS A SUB WOOFER. It's basic Hammond Sound is as good as any that I've played, it's percussion & vibrato/chorus are adequate. It really sounds good thru a SPEAKEASY VINTAGE TUBE PRE AMP. If you want Jon Lord type distortion, the MOTION PRO 3X & the Speakeasy pre amp (ama) pretty much get it. One thing that is great about this unit, besides it's flawless Hammond sound, is that you can split ANY drawbar registration or preset simply by pushing the little black button to the left of the 4 preset buttons. INSTANT BASS for the left hand. It supposedly can emulate a tri-timbrel config of 2 manuals & bass pedal board. I've tried that relentlessy, with no avail. HOWEVER : if you run a midi cable from both your pedal board & lower manual into a MIDI SOLUTION QUADRA MERGE THEN OUT FROM THE QUADRA MERGE INTO THE MIDI IN OF THE V5+, you'll get either an excellent lower manual plus pedal board, or a split single manual plus pedalboard. (this unit has only 1 midi in) . Also, if you want a volume pedal. the ERNIE BALL JR pedal will do just fine. Simply connect a guitar cord from the Voce audio out into the Ernie Ball pedal audio IN. then audio OUT from the pedal into either the amp, rotary simulator, or whatever is next in your signal chain. this unit has no REVERB . In my signal chain, the LAST item prior to going into the Main amp (or in my case, the Pro 3x) would be any one of the numerous reverb stomp boxes of your choice. I use the HOLY GRAIL NANO REVERB PEDAL, & that works GREAT ! THE bottom line : AS GOOD A BASIC HAMMOND SOUND AS YOU'LL FIND ON ANY MODULE (OR CLONEWHEEL KEYBOARD.) close [-]

Great Hammond sound, but you will need to supplement it with the following:
A) Leslie function- either a motion sound amp (Which I a... read more [+]lready had) a Ventilator, or a Hughes & Kettner Rotoshpere, etc...
B) Reverb- I use the EH Holy Grail
If you are a gearhead and you already have some of the supplementals, then go for it, it sounds awesome. If you need to spend several hundred in addition to the V5+ .. spring for a SK1.
(yeah I have one of those too, it is amazing and has as good of a leslie sim as you'll find and reverb onboard) close [-]
