Instead, everything gets very ill-defined hammohd the high harmonics for some reason take on a synthetic quality. The inspiring look of the Vox with its reverse colour keys, the reliability of modern technology, and a module full of custom-programmed Hammond presets. Every B3 sounds slightly different, so while the emulation may not sound like one example, it xm be as near as damn it to another.
That way when I switch to a heavily overdriven preset, I don’t get a sudden increase in volume.
On the other hand, I use hammmond electro north when I have no Hammond much more versatile, with Vox sounds, piano, rhodes, etc The rack is put aside and almost all controls are on the remote module. True, the XM1 was expensive for an organ module, but time has shown it to be money very well spent. Not satisfied with those reviews? Choose a rescente machine. It is for example a preset Leslie types and another types. You just had to cook them yourself. In other ways, though, the company seemed to go too far in the other direction.

I had the opportunity to use the module with a real Leslie myand in this case, the result is very correct. I think the sounds are not bad but there must be sound volume to appreciate the color. There is a cable between the two, not very long and specific, we have to be careful. Biensur there are also ready-made sounds but I prefer real-time changes.
To me, the effects loop would have been a more obvious inclusion than a Leslie driver socket. It did appear by preset 30 that Hammond had seriously misjudged the market. To cut a long and predictable story short, I bought both the XM1 module and its accompanying XMc1 drawbar controller immediately after trying it, but was my new purchase really a B3 in a box?
The XM1 is extremely flexible and if you’re prepared to spend a bit of time tinkering with the hidden parameters, it’s almost certain you’ll get very close to the Hammond sound that’s in your head. Such a shame, because setting aside that chorus plus Leslie problem and a crying need for an effects loop, this was technically a pretty spectacular device.
Look at the ingredients — the authentic drawbar tone, the amended Leslies, the percussion, the vibrato, and the most fantastic chorus… Many, many extremely tasty dishes were available. But it must have its own amplification, do not go with the guitars and vocals on the same amp. It was probably the latter, but I have to admit that I overwrote all the flute and cornet nonsense before I even touched the empty slots.
It was jazz all the way to preset 39, afterwhich things became fairly erratic. If you take a Roland D70 for example, there is a slight offset. The XM1 is now more than 15 years old, and performs exactly as it did the day I bought it. The combination is very special indeed. Plenty of opportunity to customize the sound settings: Those sluggish Leslies, for example, were supposedly intended to replicate the effects of wear and tear.

Finally, whatever you do enter a Leslie, the result is always good! It suits me, I rarely play alone and this unit filled his role perfectly.
