For Main Stage the best of the new Sampler Instruments and EVB3 Plug-In Settings were combined to a Main Stage Concert including 80 Patches. As you see in the picture the EXS24 Sampler Instruments including the sampled Hammond B3 Sounds appear like a new Software Instrument.
The GarageBand version includes 100 Software Instruments based on the Instrument-Generator „Tone Wheel Organ“, which uses the same soundengine as the Logic EVB3.
For building the EXS24 Sampler Instruments the drawbars of a Hammond B3 were sampled chromatic. That means recording one sample for each note of each of the 9 drawbars for 5 octaves. A User waveform of one drawbar includes 61 samples. Additional there are several chromatic sampled organ-percussion settings.
Beside multisamples of drawbars and organ-percussion there are also samples of some popular B3 registrations like Full Organ, First Three, First Four, Even Bars or registrations with C3 vibrato. Using multisamples of complete registrations are allowing complex Hammond-Sounds with a limited number of voice elements. All sample recordings were done without using amplifier, distortion and leslie. This allows flexible using of the Logic effects and realistic switching between slow and fast leslie using the Rotor Cabinet effect.
Additional to the B3-samples you will find also some sampled registrations of the legendary Hammond A100.
The sounds of Organ Session are offering wonderful punchy and smacky Hammond Sounds with consisely key click and adjustable percussion, rockorgans with slightly or strong distortion, traditional entertainer organs, classic drawbar-registrations and cool jazz-organs.
All in all Organ Session offers the quality as well as the quantity of a compareable Plug-in Board, Software-Instrument or high-quality Sample-CD.
Organ Session is very useful for Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, House, Entertainment or Ambient music.
Some of the EXS24 Instruments are using Multi-Outputs. This way you can use the Mixer-Fader of the Aux-Channels as virtual drawbars with the support of Logic Pro 8.
Because the very flexible EVB3 has a different sound than the sampled B3 the product includes also new EVB3 Plug-In settings. Logic Express User can use the GarageBand Software Instruments instead of the EVB3 Plug-In settings.
