Good to see some traditional organists still around, not just the jon lords and jimmy smiths, but please, turn down the reverb so I can actually hear the tone of the organ. I really wish the key b is more readily available in the states.

Nice explanation of the drawbars - their website isn't completely clear about that. Would love to get my hands on one to try - I've been a fan of the sound in demos for quite awhile.

 

And the compactness without the preset octave is a great thing for moving around. This organ is obviously a response to the success of the Mojo, and that's a good thing.

I wonder if you can assign the right control drawbars to other functions. Or if they can be assigned to control other modules, etc...

 

Kind of funny to hear this cat play some traditional organ music. No wonder he likes the reverb.

Overall, sounds like another fine organ. I thought the overdrive stood out as particularly nice on that demo. It didn't have that "mixing in a layer of fuzz" sound like some other boards.

 

I like the drawbar controller idea, except as the main volume control. That seems like it'd be easy to bump, and not something you'd be changing on the fly much (unless you forgot your swell pedal...)

I might be able to purchase one later this year , we've been

using a keyb exp for two and a half years now , it's been rock solid and it sounds great on stage through a 3300 , we run the

internal simm strait to the board , has a nice full bodied sound

and the updated sound engine in the keyb live sounds even thicker . keyb looked to be on shakey ground for a while last year but it looks like they're still going strong

I thought it was the Legend which was updated not the "Live" ?!?!

The "Live" is a slicker MKIII AFAIK.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

The Key B Legend is the updated Duo Mark III; the more portable KeyB Live has the same sound engine as the Legend. These are based on the Ultrafunk DSP platform: http://www.ultrafunk.com/

 

No, the Legend has the new hardware and Ultrafunk DSP Platform.

The guy who shot the first video was kind of surprised as he very recently bought the Live.

I emailed Elvio Prevati and asked if there will be more models with the new Legend hardware/software and he said probably next year.
