The Hammond organs are very complex beasts, full of wires. Until now, the best renditions were synthesis, mainly because of how the organ works which is a set of 91 frequencies that are connected via contactors under each key and which volume is controlled by the drawbars.
Sample based libraries consists of stacking drawbar samples at the same time which works, but causes a big problem, sometimes you play the same frequency twice and because of phase cancellation, you never get the same sound twice when if you press the same keys.
Acousticsamples have found a way to use the 91 frequencies synthesis approach, but using real samples, so they get the best of both worlds, the real recorded organ tone plus the real behavior and we keep access to the versatility of the drawbar controls and the tweakability of synthesis.

Die B5 klingt großartig und hält was ich mir nach den Testberichten die ich gelesen habe von ihr versprochen habe.
Die Preset-Einstellung ist umständlich. Klang ist gut. Support ist auch gut.
