ADD TODAY B4 II v2.0.4 INTERNAL-R2R | 30 Jun 2016 | 51.9MB
The NI B4 Organ II is a discontinued commercial, proprietary software synthesizer made by Native Instruments that emulates the look and sounds of the classic Hammond B3 tonewheel organ and rotating speaker. With an authentic looking B3 complete with drawbars, dual manuals (keyboards) and a pedal keyboard, the plug-in is very visual and intuitive to use. It even features a nifty rear-view for tweaking more adjustment parameters, kind of like the real thing! Unlike the old B3’s however, the new plug-in adds flexibility in sound generation and seamless integration into the studio that the original never had.. and at a fraction of the cost. The B4 can create all the classic B3 type sounds with stunning clarity and detail while emulating the effects of rotating speakers, tube circuitry and other electro-mechanical functions that made the B3 a legend. The sounds are physically modeled and Native Instruments has included such B3 nuances as harmonic foldback, drawbar crosstalk and loudness robbing for an authentic recreation.
The B4 software organ broke new ground when it was released in 2000 and was an instant success. It reproduces the sound of the legendary B3 and its rotary speaker cabinet with unmatched accuracy. Its expressiveness and immediate playability continues to amaze even the most experienced organ players. The B4 II raises the bar considerably, generating a much wider sonic range and a far richer, even more authentic sound.
Through The Tube
The latest version of this award-winning virtual organ sees the addition of many extra components. A tube amplifier and a selection of classic speaker cabinets offer you greater freedom of expression. Spring and studio reverb modules lend the sound more depth and atmosphere. From silky soft to relentlessly rockin’, the sound is stunningly precise and more versatile than ever before.
Attention To Detail
From the drawbars, the vibrato and chorus to the tube distortion and rotary speakers, the B4 II delivers the sound of the original in incredible detail. The cross-talk between the tonewheels is adjustable and 11 additional tonewheel sets are also included: ‘Cosmetically age’ the B4 II or transform it into a Farfisa, a Vox Continental or an Indian Harmonium.
