Erste Demo, moch nicht ganz finale Parameter, Throb und Spread in mittlerer Einstellung. Vielleicht etwas basslastig, habe ich inzwischen zurückgenommen. Alles weitere siehe unten. Ich hatte BTW nicht vor, den Ventilator zu kopieren -- der klingt mir in manchen Tonlagen etwas "glucksig".https://soundcloud.com/carsten-meyer-1/hx3-mk3-demo
Here is a first impression of the new stereo Leslie sim, raw parameters, not finally optimized. Medium throb and stereo width. Recorded directly from HX3 line-out jacks. New 122 Amp simulation has "worn out tubes" characteristic and "power supply sag" which I like very much. Horn/rotor balance is adjustable by menu, as well as throb, spread, ramp times and speeds (recording may be to "bassy"). Anyway, I did not try to resemble the Neo Ventilator in all ascpects - it sounds somewhat "chuckly" for my ears in some note ranges.
Most of the former issues are fixed:
Output jacks are mono on new board, but configurable by menu parameter, i.e. you may get plain organ ("G-G" outputs), amp122 sim, pedal or leslie L/R on any jack. Separate jack extension board for new HX3 mk3 carries "missing" signals. On present HX3 board, stereo jacks carry all signals separately, but switchable configuration A/B by former "Bass on Leslie" tab or parameter.
Lower octave foldback on 16' is configurable by menu parameter: Foldback with full level, foldback with muted level, no foldback ("all way down") with full level or muted level.
Reverb amount may be adjusted for each of three tab settings separately by menu.
Bass and Treble tone controls have wider ranges. A "mids" range may be implemented additionally (to do) which may make a multiband equalizer obsolete in most cases.
Pedal bass is fully polyphonic now with "dry" original sound or "Trek II string bass". If sustain is engaged, last note played fades out.
Strange "other manual" treble increase with vibrato ON fixed.
Adjustable AO28 tube/triode wearout.
Audio output power-on "thump" fixed on new board by timed relay.
More realistic leakage parameters from new to sleazy organ.
Virtual key contacts have "mutual contact resistance" now which yields a more "decent" click response when played softly. Depends on MIDI or key dynamics. Key contact damping and flex rate adjustable.
New vibrato delay line simulation with exact reflections due to aged caps. Adjustable "Age" parameter for each vibrato knob setting.
Todo: Detachable MenuPanel for temporary use on HX3 organ installations. Not a big problem, though.
