A Classic Tonewheel Organ

B3 is a MaxForLive device built to model the sound of the tonewheel organs used in classic recordings by artists such as SantanaBooker TThe DoorsLed Zeppelin and others. B3 doesn’t stop there though; its 8 harmonics (or drawbars) allow you to sculpt a wide range of tones for your sounds, from classic screeching organs to ambient drones and pads.

Use the Percussion section to add a percussive ‘key click’ to the attack of your sound. Add Chorus/Vibrato or Drive to colour your sound and use the Attack and Release controls to take your sound beyond what is possible with a classic tonewheel organ.

Also included with B3 is a spring reverb and spinning speaker rack to help you recreate the authentic tonewheel organ sounds and provide additional tools for unique sound design.

B3 is built to work with the Ableton Push so all the controls are laid out for easy access and flexibility.
