Hi All ! This is my first contact with you lot so please bear with me. I play keyboards in a Wedding Band but previously I played in a resident club band where I blasted a Hammond A100 through a Leslie 145, miked-up through a massive pa system. YUM YUM ! After our band got the sack, I had to sell the Beast. I now need to find a module to give me a good BIG Hammond sound. I am playing a Korg Trinity and a Roland XP-30 which has the expansion card "Keyboards of the 60's & 70's " fitted. IMO its not too good. I have thought about the Voce V5+ but getting one in the UK is a real problem and it doesnt have a built in Leslie. I have tried using a pc with Native Instruments B4 "live" with a band, but drummers hate people that take longer to set up than them so that idea was dropped, although, it did sound the Dugz Danglies! I tried the Clavia Nord Electro II 61 note when it first came out but I wasnt impressed and thought it was overpriced. I now wish I had bought it, as I wouldnt be in this quandry now. I have also tried out the Creamware B4000, it had the worst dose of latency I have ever come accross. Next ,I looked at Rolands offering the VK-8m, I dont like the way its set-up, that D Beam thing ?.. I dont fancy looking like a magician waving his hand to switch the Leslie to fast! SO..I'm now revisiting the Nord Electro II rack, but have just heard that the Hammond XM series is back and would love to hear if it can stand up against the Mighty Nord of the North..........
No announcement yet.
Nord Electro II Rack ~OR~ Hammond XM-2 ? Please help me choose
