The HX3 tweakable Leslie parameters are:

Rotary Group
HornSlowTm <16> - Leslie simulation horn revolution timer when set to SLOW
RotorSlowTm <14> - Leslie simulation rotor revolution timer when set to SLOW
HornFastTm <130> - Leslie simulation horn revolution timer when set to FAST
RotorFastTm <120> - Leslie simulation rotor revolution timer when set to FAST
HornRampUp <4> - Leslie simulation horn accelleration from SLOW to FAST. Firmware 3.5 and up only.
RotorRampUp <20> - Leslie simulation rotor accelleration from SLOW to FAST. Firmware 3.5 and up only.
HornRampDown <3> - Leslie simulation horn brake time from FAST to SLOW. Firmware 3.5 and up only.
RotorRampDown <30> - Leslie simulation rotor brake time from FAST to SLOW. Firmware 3.5 and up only.
Rotary Throb <200> - Leslie simulation "throb" modulation factor. Firmware 3.5 and up only.
Rotary Spread <200> - Leslie simulation stereo spread (width). Firmware 3.5 and up only.
Rotary Balnce <200> - Leslie simulation volume balance horn/rotor. Firmware 3.5 and up only.

I will compare the new stereo Lesliesim with my Vent as soon as I'll get my expander updated (aprox. in 2 weeks).

All I can say is that the HX3-engine sounds absolutely fantastic....


BTW: MVintage means the Mvintage VST Leslie sim not the old Mono version...

Thx for the info !
What about the overdrive ?
Do we have separate organ pre-amp and Leslie power-amp overdrive controls ?

Arrghh,- I wasn´t aware such thing exists, now googled and found
this Melda Production MVintage Rotary VST

Is that what we heard in the 1st demo w/ HX3 ?

the reason I asked was that I've been waiting for a response from elvio for about a week and a half now , been trying to get some info on the keyb live . anyway I can tell you the expander turned out to be a good purchase . my apologies to
everyone for this thread within a thread , my fault .

thu

I appreciate:

"LeslieVolume <70> - adjusts Leslie Amp simulation volume from 0 to full (overdriven tube amp)"

and ...

"TrebleEqu <30> - mimics TONE pot on AO28 amp; well, a little bit more on high values.
BassEqu <90> - bass equalizer, adjusts bass response of different AO28 models.
AO28 tube k2 <12> - controls simulated AO28 preamp tube aging (higher triode distortion k2). Firmware 3.5 and up only.
"

thx,- and looking forward you demos ...

..same frustrating experience here !
Contacted Elvio about 3 months ago to get infos about the keyB Master. The last few weeks I tried it again cause I wanted to buy the Master to control my HX3-Expander. No responses !

So, I decided to get a GSi DMC-122 or one step further a MAG custom organ....
We'll see...

Hey Hammond, you guys browsing here ? HX-3 module w/drawbars is still vaporware, the VK-8M is discontinued, and the KeyB Expander designer is AWOL (and with no, current North American distribution). Where's the XM-3, guys ? There is a market; small, but it's there. After all, Roland just did a keyboard module. There's a bunch of us who don't need an SK-1; we like our current keyboards. But we want that Hammond sound in our rigs..

That would be useful but it better be priced right. That last XM2 cost almost as much as the XK1 organ did.

Odd how that was.. Plus, the XM-2 had to be combined with the XMC-2. So that either meant a separate rack, or figuring out a way to velcro both the module, and drawbar controller to the top of a keyboard - kind of kludgy, IMO, and defeats the whole idea of a simple, compact drawbar module w/built-in rotary sim.. BTW, probably old news, but I just noticed the XM-2/XMC-2 is also discontinued.
Too bad Dave Amels isn't still designing this stuff. Bet he'd figure out a way to get the whole deal into a package not much bigger than a V5. His Voce V3, produced almost twenty years ago, has an advanced function and MIDI control matrix that puts a lot of current gear to shame.

how is the chorus/vibrato ? I haven't heard any videos where you can clearly hear it . other than that it sounds great , very analogue , it sounds big , like a real tonewheel organ

THIS ^^
I've been awaiting an XK1c in a drawbar module for a year now. Not a 2 piece like the XM2/XMc2 but one module like the Voce V5. I don't need another keyboard, just a self contained sound module with drawbars. I'm actually contemplating an XM2/XMc2 because nothing else newer is in the marketplace.

The XM-2 used the same main board as the XK-1 but the area containing the EV circuitry was left empty. So if there was going to be a single unit module it would have been the width and depth of the XM-2 and at least that tall. I doubt there would have been an XM-2 if it required manufacturing a whole new main board. There just isn't (or at least hasn't been) enough demand for a module to justify a complete re-design and manufacture of the electronics (IMO).

Hi Marco,

how would you rate the HX3 Stereolesliesim against the Vent and the Lesliepedal?

Isn't the Lesliepedal the same as the internal SK sim, is it ?

cheers
Markus

ciao Markus!
unfortunately I haven't updated the stereo leslie yet.
(to be honest, I have no idea about how to upgrade the module.... I asked via email but I still got no answer laugh )

I can't wait for this upgrade, becouse the HX3 leslie sim (now in mono) sounds really good with it's internal drive (but with this mono mode it is no comparable with all the other sims).


and no, the leslie pedal is definitely not the same effect of internal SK.
it sounds different and it has a different overdrive (I prefer the overdrive of SK).

at the moment the BURN is still my favorite....

After the FPGA overhaul, which is already done, the HX3 leslie sim is stereo again because of ressources usage optimization.
tales from the lab

Delivery of next production run HX3 circuit boards is delayed to week 26 /27 (probably end of june) by reasons you can read HERE .

For all forumites,- in the WIKI you find which pages/documents are available in english.

In the forum, normaly in german, the 1st post of THIS page is listing all the new/updated/upgraded features of the HX3 engine in english !

Marco, I see you already asked for the available update-download links so you have ´em already.
Keep us posted how your upgraded HX3 expander module´s stereo leslie and internal overdrive sounds please.

OTOH, all buying a HX3-XB2 kit or expander module will get it w/ latest firmware anyway.

Hi Marco,

I did the update yesterday! It's easy now with the new
upload-software, it worked very well...

The new Stereoleslie is very good. As is the overdrive.
Unfortunately I have my Ventilator not at home at the moment for comparison.
I will do this next week....

Dear all!

Finally the HX3 expander is back home with updated board.
I just made a couple of test, so be patient, as soon as I’ll have some time I’ll make a detailed audio/video test.

NEW Leslie simulation!!!!!
boing
Leslie in stereo is great and, thanks to this improvement, finally the overall sound is at very top level among the last generation clonewheels.
Really adjustable and easy to edit with the easy-to-use front panel (I still do not use the pc editor, for the moment).

Whit this new feature (stereo leslie) the overdrive effect sounds further better and “natural”.
Finally, my ears can feel the correct behavior of a saturated tube-amped Leslie.

OK, it is NOT like having a saturated 147 or 122 Leslie screaming in front of you, this is clear to all of us roll
But the simulation (leslie + AMP/drive) is able enough to deceive and persuade my ears.

Unfortunately, although the above mentioned features make the HX3 sounding great, there are a couple of "bugs" to be fixed, but the sound is really terrific.

Here a quick example of the HUGE sound quality of this little beast.
Expander stereo out direct to a Roland SA-1000 stereo amp.
Audio taken with a ZOOM H2n placed in front of the amp.
AMP saturation....

Some (three or four notes only) keys on the upper two octaves produce (with the AMP/DRIVE knob turned at levels just starting from 1/4) a digital clipping noise (you can hear a couple of that in my mp3).

I determined that it is NOT a problem with my amp, or with my pc soundboard, or with my headphones, but it is a sort of “digital” clipping – IF something digital is involved - generated by the HX3 itself.

Maybe the problem should depend on the fact that HX3 has NO internal volume knob?
Maybe it should be sufficient to “attenuate” the internal audio signal with a new system upgrade?
Hopefully yes….


Stay tuned….

Ciao

Marco

They partnered with MAG Custom Organs. They build
one or two manual boards....

I'm not the seller or affiliated in any way just an interested clonewheeler. If they matched this up with a drawbar controller like ocean beach and sold it with all cables for $1000.00 I'd be on it. That is if B3er said it was OK.

Interesting he´s selling it for an MAG Organ P-2 upgrade using the same engine.
That means he was truly satisfied w/ the HX3 sound.

I doubt that is the HX3 mk3 hardware even it might be upgraded to mk3 via firmware update.
HX3 mk3 hardware is just available NOW and shipped to those who pre-ordered.
I think he has a mk2 hardware box upgraded to mk3 software.
I understood mk3 hardware is also an improved circuit board.

yes, already sent a message (in the XH3 forum too).
it's really demoralizing that you have such a powerful machine and you cannot use it (the digital clipping is really invasive).

OK, and I notice that nobody has responded in the HX3 forum...

Hmm...Can it be that it´s something wrong with your unit?
Just guessing here since nobody seems to have reported this problem other than you? Or nobody except you noticed it yet?!?

Btw, if you bypass its sim and hook the HX3 to a Leslie or other sim, do you still have that problem?

Some (three or four notes only) keys on the upper two octaves produce (with the AMP/DRIVE knob turned at levels just starting from 1/4) a digital clipping noise (you can hear a couple of that in my mp3).

I determined that it is NOT a problem with my amp, or with my pc soundboard, or with my headphones, but it is a sort of “digital” clipping – IF something digital is involved - generated by the HX3 itself.

Maybe the problem should depend on the fact that HX3 has NO internal volume knob?
Maybe it should be sufficient to “attenuate” the internal audio signal with a new system upgrade?
Hopefully yes….


Stay tuned….

Did you discuss these issues with the developer?

Sounds really good in any way!
