I had the opportunity to use the module with a real Leslie myand in this hhammond, the result is very correct. The sounds did begin to arrive from preset 31, which harboured a great Jimmy Smith Organ Grinder Swing style jazz setting, with console chorus, and a bass end that reeked of quality. In short, everything is adjustable or almost controllable by noon sysex Possibility of desks XMC1 zippers.

The inspiring look of the Vox with its reverse colour keys, the reliability of modern technology, and a module full of custom-programmed Hammond presets. I think the sounds are not bad but there must be sound volume to appreciate the color.
If you take a Roland D70 for example, there is a slight offset. Note that setting the zippers also transmits Midi.
There is a cable between the two, not very long and specific, we have to be careful. It suits me, I rarely play alone and this unit filled his role perfectly. Surely the whole point of this module was to provide hqmmond stand-alone solution.

In contrast, in a vintage fender is happiness, a characteristic vibration of the 70’s and I do not have the chance to have a real leslie. After that, once you set one or more sound “type”, you can use x,1 console zippers for adjusting the sound live. Which leads to the doorstep of an even larger, if once again straightforward to solve, sonic problem: Leslie effects with several simulation models and adjust speeds and accelerations, etc.
It was probably the latter, but I have to admit that I overwrote all the flute and cornet nonsense before I even touched the empty slots. First of the concerns was the setup of the Leslie dm1 simulators. Newer Post Older Post Home.
It did add up, in my view, to a picture of a manufacturer out of touch with its customer base. Those sluggish Leslies, for example, were supposedly intended to replicate the effects of wear and tear. Numerous phone calls down the line, I was given the number of a bloke called Graham, who was hmmond them out from a private address in north Birmingham.
With the presets and Leslie simulations set to my taste, I absolutely love the range of sounds. That was common knowledge — except at Hammond, seemingly. There was a Leslie driver socket, so you could of course get a real cabinet, which would, without question, do the business.
User reviews: Hammond XM-1 + XMc-1 – Audiofanzine
It was jazz all the way to preset 39, afterwhich things became fairly erratic. True, the XM1 was expensive for an organ module, but time has shown it to be money very well spent. Biensur there are also ready-made sounds but I prefer real-time changes. Plenty of opportunity to customize the sound settings: Unfortunately, a BIG weakness in emulation: Was the kind of person who would spend over a grand on an organ module and MIDI controller unit really going to be some kind of plainsong enthusiast?
Or something like that. The combination is very special indeed. Sort by most recent most useful. Also possible to connect a Leslie, but with a non-standard connector again.

Every B3 sounds slightly different, so while the emulation may not sound like one example, it could be as near as damn it to another. That way when I hajmond to a heavily overdriven preset, I don’t get a sudden increase in volume. Chorus and vibrato useless for me, the distortion is just pathetic.
It did appear by preset 30 that Hammond x1m seriously misjudged the market. A very sluggish Leslie ambled in from patch 21, but the next ten presets used simple non-tonewheel drawbar voicings… Was this really meant to be a B3 in a box?
But it must have its own amplification, do not go with the guitars and vocals on the same amp. But again, I believe Hammond misjudged what people were after. This module still has the advantage of using a pedal with a typical sound of the Hammond pedals, which is an advantage for me which I could not do with the electro north.
The rack is not a Moitier rack or a full rack is embettant to cram. The XM1 is now more than 15 years old, and performs exactly as it did the day I hxmmond it. You need a keyboard that responds quickly. The bass is very present you have to have serious in pregnant! You just had to cook them yourself. The rack is put aside and almost all controls are on the remote module.
