Thanks for the hint. Just downloaded the O&C collection and fiddled around with it on the virtual keys of my iPad. First impression: very nice sounds! Much better B3 sounds than the crappy Premier Organs. And it has a muted clavinet!

Just did the update on my iPhone. Not sure, but on the iPhone speaker I think the Korg organs are an improvement over Premier's.

Does the new O&C collection work in Gadget (if you download it into Module)?

 

ETA: Yes it does. You have to update both apps.

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our now not-so-new new video at https://youtu.be/3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out! And hopefully I'll have something new here this year. ;-)

I thought that the organ had been discontinue for those series. Is this new? I thought that I had read that updates were removing the organ collection.

I am considering making the jump to iOS and am disappointed with organs so far.

I appreciate the update, OP!

This appears to be a new organ collection to replace the old (discontinued) one.

 

As for iOS organs, I think the one in Garagaband is nice. Unfortunately, its MIDI implementation is poor. It's always in Omni mode (responding to all notes played on all MIDI channels), and there's no CC control for drawbars. But if you don't do live drawbar manipulation and don't care about running other MIDI sound apps at the same time, it's fine.

Gotta go with Yonac's Galileo 2 - still the top of the heap for iOS Hammond patches. Plus, it's just plain fun to knock around in.

The new organ+clav collection is more complete than the discontinued product.

 

42 Organs - B3, Vox, Farfisa, Pipe & Theater Organ, pump and toy organs.

10 Clav's thrown in to soothe the ruffled feathers.

 

Korg had a ton of Organ assets to pick from and they choose wisely. It compete favorably with Galileo. The sustain pedal toggles the Rotary/Leslie effect or applies sustain to the Clav's.

I wonder how they compare to the stock clavs...

but drawbar control?

i updated module yesterday and in my case the Premier organs are still there, yesterday i thought they were korg organs, but i looked closer and its still the Premier set. they are quite good. that'll be my last update unless they can somehow magically reduce the latency , it around 10-12 ms overall

After updating Module, you have to go to the Korg Store in Module, and the new organs/clavs will show up so you can add them. Some pretty good sounds, I'm liking them as much as the previous set.

Good point.

 

I forgot where I'm posting... there are actual Organ Players here that will

not accept faux simulations but need those drawbars to even consider it an "Organ".

When I watch a real B3 player (esp if the pedals are reaplcing the bass player) I am truly humbled. That must be the ultimate expressive keyboard instrument of all time.

 

My bad.

A more grievous sin is the percussion that triggers on every note, regardless of held notes. So even if you find a preset that sounds good, it just wont play correctly.
I understand (and have no issue with) some romplers not being able to handle organ percussion properly, but I think it's kind of nervy these days to charge extra for an implementation like that.

Somehow my update did not go through. And I am very glad. I just heard a new demo on YouTube of the new Korg Organ set and its not good, the Premier Organ is so much better. I will never update my Module

Why does my update from 2 days ago still have the Premier organs I purchased months ago?

updating doesnt delete what you already have.

Are the new Korg Organs better than the premier set? I am not sure.

I personally think that they are at least equal. Plus, these apparently belong to Korg, so there should not ever be a problem with losing them because some agreement with another vendor did not continue.

 

They are different. I also have Galileo - it does offer more control in that one can adjust drawbars. I do use it from time to time.

 

I personally prefer the Leslie emulation in Module. Since most of my organ use is supporting in an ensemble, I don't really have to move drawbars around. I just copy the factory patches to the user area so that I can just change patch for a different sound.

YMMV.

My first impression is that the Korg Organ set is better than the old premier set they removed.
