The LinPlug Organ 3 focussed on capturing the sound and spirit of the classical organs as well as thinking of new features that accompany the classic sound. Just one examples: ADSR envelopes allow you to adjust how quickly the sound starts as well as how quickly it fades away. Release alone will add an unbelievable new flavour to many classic organ sounds.  

With the LinPlug Organ 3 you have a lot of yet unheard organ sounds and many of the classic sounds right at your fingertips. Switchable Foldback, Tonewheel-Sync, realistic drawbar volume relation, the behaviour of the percussion switch, motor noise and keyclick are just a few of the aspects of the “original” sound. In the LinPlug Organ 3 you have control over all of them.

Das mit Organ 3 mehr geht als nur die klassische Hammond finde ich sehr gut, denn somit wird das Plug-in zu einer wahren Kreativzelle, mit dem sich Sounds bis zur Unkenntlichkeit verbiegen lassen. Redaktionstipp

“It goes way beyond just being another emulation program.It really does open up a whole world of different and new Organish type of sounds and Sonic possibilities.I just LOVE the program!”

Robert Alpert, Composer, USA
