just did the 4.25 . i just installed the 4.22 this week, it was
a nice improvement , the 4.25 is even better . the organ's
got more personality , it's more animated for sure and the pedal
tone has finally arrived i think . the update will be well worth
the effort . the output problems i was having with my vent seem
to be resolved . one of default output settings on the 4.25 has
been trimmed way down , could have been the culprit

I just got a borrowed xb2 with an hx 3 interiour. It sounds and plays pretty nice, will not fiddle about at all since it is not mine , has anyone of you had the chance to compare this older version with a recent version? It feels and sounds pretty nice but the C/V is too strong and the leslie on this FW is a bit too weak or 2 dimensional. But the click , percussion and overdrive feel spot on . Thank you in advance

Does 4.25 affect the CV?

I am more than happy with the CV on 4.22 now except on the last 4 or 5 notes with 888000000 third percussion.

Those notes could stand to be a little less warbly. But I do so much playing in the middle register that I hate to give it up for anything else- it sounds great there.

The CV has to be dialed in though. I wish I could speak to someone who knows more about what is going on with it.

I am able to pair the HX3 with keybeds I really like. I am not wild about the TP-80 stuff at this point.

When I tried the Viscount Legend, there were some things I missed about the HX3. The midrange sounds very very good.

the 4.25 did tone down the c/v somewhat , it was a little too much previously but i got used to it , it sounded strong in
a loud stage mix . when i first heard the c/v in the 4.25 ,
it sounded a little weaker , but , it's fine , a little more
accurate .the change to the tone generator itself, is well
worth the update . sounds very good , even warmer than before
