  • Dry samples of a hammond B3 or equivalent wanted to compare with this emulator

    Hi.


    I'm working on a microcontroller based (STM32F746 Discovery) clonewheel and have made some progress recently when it comes to the tonal quality of the vibrato scanner sound.



    This unit has a floating point unit which makes the reverb sound very clean in particular. Here is a little demo so far.

    What I'm looking for as a comparison is a bunch of samples when playing with full drawbar registration and compare the unmodulated sound with the "C3" and "V3" chorus settings. I've been very careful about minute details in the sound. Keyclick is incorporated for example as well as manual taperings and each tonewheel spectrum comes from real recordings.

    I will make a user interface with the touchscreen later on. Do you think it sounds somewhat realistic?

    It is already possible to have an effect loop chain. The reverb for example is taken on the final stage. I plan to have a tube overdrive stage and also a sound isolated and microphoned rotating speaker in the effect loop. When it comes to the reverb I just want it to sound like in a room or hall rather than the spring reverb that would've been the choice for a faithful emulation.

    Unlike the real thing I want to reverberate the sound after the leslie effect

    Not bad, Tobbe - this sounds much much more scanner-like than the clips you've shared previously. The keyclick is the most obvious giveaway in this clip - it sounds too sharp, too loud and too "predictable" and "repetitive". But other than that I'm impressed! This is a big leap forward for your project.

      Thanks Enor. Regarding the keyclick though it is fortunately rather simple to adjust. I have no reference material since the demand for dry hammond samples is very low indeed. In many aspects I'm more intrested in the feeling of the sound rather than faithful imitation. I know that the keyclick is uneven and random in the real thing but this simple algorithm that I've used sounds hauntingly electromechanical in nature.

      If I would've had a real Hammond organ I would probably have contributed to a bank of dry samples. It would be nice if this forum would add such material for calibration purposes and research.
