This 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.
