Rotary Organ was sampled from magesy download a Hammond M3 tonewheel Organ. The end goal was to simulate the sound of a Hammondnd B3 organ with rotating Leslie Speaker inside of a VSTi/AU/AAX plugin. Every drawbar on every note was sampled individually via the organ’s built-in speaker through a Neumann TLM 102 microphone. The signal was re-amped though a Fender Deluxe Reverb and recorded via a Sennheiser e906. Both signals were run through Grace M101 preamps. A Hammond M3 Organ combines the last two harmonics into a single drawbar, this note was omitted. Instead, a “digital foldback” teqchnique was used to extend the harmonics of the Hammond M3 to be similar to that of a Hammond B3.

Changues: Release v2.0 6/13/2020 *********************** Improvements since last version: *Added amplifiers using Vacuum Tube simulations *Added speaker/EQ curves *Made the plugin less bright with a soft/bright switch and an “angle” knob that controls the directionality of the Leslie *Added many presets based on famous songs *Added separate controls for Bottom+Upper pan and volume *Added a mellow knob. *Added a chorus knob *Added a knob to control percussion boost/cut *Added an overdrive switch (toggles old distortion algorithm on/off) *Added trim+volume knobs to feed the amplifier *Added volume controls for Leslie and DI volume and panning. *Added Knobs to control Upper+Bottom rotor Depth *Added a Reverb Size Knob *Added a delay knob *Made the Leslie control Midi reassignable *Volume Swell controls (also Midi reassignable) *Added a switch to turn off lower-manual keyclick *Added a switch to toggle between Midi leslie control and velocity. *Leslie speed can also now be controlled from magesy download midi notes (AO/Bb0) *Added a “Flip Swell” switch to invert midi pedal control on volume swell *Fixed the bottom+upper rotor speeds and acceleration rampups to be more accurate *Added “whoosh” (the sound of the leslie spinning) and a switch to toggle it on/off
Bugs Fixed: – Plugin may be slightly more optimized now
