Hammond Suzuki MIDI Sound Module

Hammond Suzuki has introduced the XM-1 MIDI Drawbar Sound Module, allowing a musician to hold the key to the real Hammond B-3 sound in the palm of his hand. The XM-1 generates the pure Harmonic Drawbar tones of the Hammond B-3, C-3 and A-100 family of organs, reproducing the sound of tone wheels in every aspect down to the variations in key click and crosstalk. The unit also features the new balance Monitored Time Phase digital Leslie Speaker simulator, so it’s now possible to produce the Hammond B-3 sound without breaking your back.
