It is for example a preset Leslie types and another types. In other ways, though, the company seemed to go too far in the other direction.

Keyboardists everywhere were going overboard for anything analogue — provided it was digital, obviously. Plenty of opportunity to customize the sound settings: The basic sound quality was and still is stunning.

When I used this module, it was mainly an organ with two midi keyboards, but this format keyboard for me today a bit short keyboards, tiny bracket. The bass is very present you have to have serious in pregnant! This module still has the advantage of using a pedal with a typical sound of the Hammond pedals, which is an advantage for me which I could not do with the electro north.

If you take a Roland D70 for example, there is a slight offset. Was the kind of person who would spend over a grand on an organ module and MIDI controller unit really going to be some kind of plainsong enthusiast? That way when I switch to a heavily overdriven preset, I don’t get a sudden increase in volume.

Request a new review. The sounds did begin to arrive from preset 31, which harboured a great Jimmy Smith Organ Grinder Swing style jazz setting, with console chorus, and a bass end that reeked of quality.

True, the XM1 was expensive for an organ module, but time has shown it to be money very well spent.

Incredibly, presets 1 to 20 were merely drawbar registrations, featuring no animation whatsoever. There is a cable between the two, not very long and specific, we have to be careful. Numerous phone hammon down the line, I was given the number of a bloke called Graham, who was knocking them out from a private address in north Birmingham.

Chorus and vibrato useless for me, the distortion is just pathetic. The rack is not a Moitier rack or a full rack is embettant to cram. The inspiring look of the Vox with its reverse colour keys, the reliability of modern technology, and a module full bammond custom-programmed Hammond presets. A very sluggish Leslie ambled in from patch 21, but the next ten presets used simple non-tonewheel drawbar voicings… Was this really meant to be a B3 in a box?

Finally, whatever you do enter a Leslie, the result is always good! By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies. That was common knowledge — except at Hammond, seemingly.

I think the sounds are not bad but there must hammons sound volume to appreciate the color. To me, the effects loop would have been a more obvious inclusion than a Leslie driver socket. For specifications, say you have a hammond thanks to a small box that you put on another synth.

But again, I believe Hammond misjudged what people were after. The combination is very special indeed. Note that setting the zippers also transmits Midi. But if you were going to start buying pieces of furniture you may as well get a real tonewheel organ as well, and then why would you bother with an XM1? With the presets and Leslie simulations set to my hammonnd, I absolutely love the range of sounds.


After that, once you set one or more sound “type”, you can use the console zippers for adjusting the sound live. Choose a rescente machine. From memory, I seem to remember that you can store up to 5 settings including a single rotor Our members also liked: First I play a real Hammond.

It did add up, in my view, to a picture of a manufacturer out of touch with its customer base. 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?

Damage the connecting cable is too short and the connectors are not standard.

Which leads to the doorstep of an even larger, if once again straightforward to solve, sonic problem: Subscribe to our free newsletter Subscribe. Biensur there are also ready-made sounds but I prefer real-time changes. 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.

I had the opportunity to use the module with a real Leslie myand in this case, the result is very hammodn. Or something like that. On the other hand, I gammond an electro north when I have no Hammond much more versatile, with Vox sounds, piano, rhodes, etc
