Yes, for the money it's pretty good..... 8 fader controllers don't really cut it when it comes to controlling Hammond clones...
OK, it's a bit 'cheap and cheerful' compared to some of the other controllers being describd here, but it's fully programmable, so it can control quite a lot of functions.
Even the (non pogrammable) rotary switch (top left) sends out program control codes which can be used to select presets!
If you can afford to wait for IK to have one of their (apparantely random) sales, the software is only about £50, as I recall.
Using a Yamaha MIDI enabled spinet organ from the 90s as a controller (usually around £50 on Ebay) and we're talking a really cost effective 'clonewheel' organ...
Organs - like the HC2 I'm using - do not use velocity sensitive keyboards, and they're not weighted at all.... So a light, fast, organ action also helps to improve the package.
Nearest I've ever come to owning a real M.102. ( The M series organs were often called the 'baby B' -- Not quite a B3 sound wise - but close! )
There are some CCs for some of the b3x stomps like greenscreamer on/off but no CCs listed for level or tone on the pedal. Does the fosse access those other controls? What midi commands does it use to get those controls and how can I map those midi commands to my roland a800?
It's probably beyond the scope of this thread but if anybody knows...

Excellent work, Mike. I grab a Mellotron when I need one, but the plug is so comprehensive, its very much like a well-endowed synth. Sometimes the tweaks you can make blur the line between M-Tron and unique instruments from Klevgrand or Cherry Audio. Its safe to say its a major Key Buy winner, for old Keyboard readers. 🤓
