  • Tried my T-524 in a mix, and it surprised me. This was with Garageband's Leslie simulator, as well. For some reason I couldn't get it to switch speeds during recording. So this is on the slow speed all the way through.

    Not bad at all there, Nate. Sounds from before your time that will be here after we're gone.

      Have you tried the famous T-series mods?
      Google “Hammond T-Series modifications”, there’s plenty of information.
      T’s are very easy to turn into mini-B3’s - in my opinion a well-modified T can sound better than an M or an L.
      For silent recording and when my 122 is out for maintenance I run my modded T202 through Apple Logic’s Leslie sim which I think is probably identical to the Garage Band sim.
      In Logic it is possible to capture the Leslie speed changes whilst recording, but I usually keep it on slow because the fast speed sounds inauthentic and I don’t want to be messing around with a computer mouse whilst performing.
      I’ve obtained a passable sound by combining the Logic Leslie with a real Marshall stack, sort of a hybrid of Jon Lord’s main tones from two different periods of his career
      1971 T-202 with Carsten Meyer mods: Remove key click filters, single-trigger percussion, UM 16' drawbar volume correction. Lower Manual bass foldback.
      Korg CX3 (original 1980's analogue model).
      1967 Leslie 122 with custom inbuilt preamp on back panel for 1/4" line-level inputs, bass & treble controls. Horn diffusers intact.
