Al Coda Posted July 25, 2014 Share Posted July 25, 2014 I basically agree with your post, except that I think there is a "sonic separation" benefit to be had in sending the organ out to its own separate output. And I'd say you're right in it not being because of hardware issues (DSP or sharing the same processor), but because the sound will no longer share the Master Effects (i.e. reverb, EQ, compression) with the rest of your split/layered sounds. (You also have the option to then do separate external processing on the sound, play withs its own external mixer settings, even send it to its own amp.) It´s simpler ... Definition of engine and model 1st. In Kronos (and other machines) the "engine" is the processor and what most people call "engines" here, like "synth engine","organ-engine" or "epiano-engine" etc., that´s the software-models and the ROMpler,- all processed by the same engine,- the CPU. 2nd,- there´s only real output separation when there are dedicated DA converters existing in the circuitry and for each stereo-output pair or mono single outputs and the main stereo output pair. Unfortunately, most pieces of gear don´t offer that luxury and multiplex from main output converters. Sometimes phase issues come in addition. So, the only benefit is routing, not sound quality. Multiplexed "aux" or single outputs share the same DA and Bit-Depth the main output uses. Now it depends how it´s handled in Kronos,- I myself I have no clue. Personally, I´d prefer a clone offering a real good Leslie sim so I don´t have to buy another piece of gear like the Vent and need more cables. A multipin output to connect to real Leslie cabinets is welcome because these can be hired at backline rentals when needed. I think the concept of the HX3 engine is great and the now again stereo leslie sim sounds very good. Because it´s a very small company doing all the developement, I wait a bit. It´s good already but will be much better soon. I find the MAG Custom Organ using HX3 very tempting and it will come. A.C. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
