Billy Nobel Talks about Hammond B-3X

Tim McGraw's keyboardist on "by far the best B3 emulation" he has heard.

 Billy Nobel is currently spending his time playing keyboards and singing harmony vocals for country superstar Tim McGraw.  Studying piano and conducting, Billy has dedicated his life to the arts, and specifically, to the keyboard.  When learning about the Hammond B-3X through already being a fan of our Leslie Collection, Billy quickly got a copy of the software and reached out to tell us his thoughts.

"As a fan of IK Multimedia's Leslie plugin, I was excited to see them launch the complete package of Hammond B3, Leslie and effects.  Hammond B-3X is by far the best B3 emulation I have heard.  From the details in the tone wheel leakage and key click to the realistic and expressive Leslie cabinets, Hammond B-3X is very inspiring to play.  B-3X is light on CPU usage due to its modeling technology, and it is a visually pleasing plugin to interact with.  And if you're looking for some quick variations in its sounds, IK Multimedia has put together a long list of very nice and diverse presets."

I look forward to using Hammond B-3X in the studio and on stage.

The Hammond B-3X  is the next-level organ virtual instrument that delivers an unprecedented new degree of realism and detail to give musicians full immersion into the electro-mechanical Hammond organ experience with all its soul, passion and vibe. Created in close collaboration with both the Hammond Organ Company, of Chicago, Illinois, and Suzuki Musical Instruments Mfg. of Hamamatsu, Japan, the Hammond B-3X instrument captures the authentic sound and vibe of the legendary Hammond B-3, with a comprehensive, holistic approach. The end result delivers the full sonic impact that this legendary organ has made on generations of musicians and modern music as we know it.
