Interesting. I spent so much time making 100(?) personal presets for each successive generation of Hammond clones that I haven't really put the time yet into trying to do the same with B-5 so that I can do a true shoot-out.

I despise every single one of the presets, but don't regret purchasing it as it clearly is the most full-featured and best-designed SOFTWARE clone since NI canceled B4 II.

I'll be curious to hear from people who have done direct comparisons of B-5 to Hammond clones, sans effects (no chorus/vibrato or Leslie), for custom sounds vs. presets.
