New Hammond in the family
Like some of you know I come across things upon my lifes path that I 'pick up' and make use of.
I found my small mixer and I found my monstrous water cooled PC tower,
well tonight I found a Hammond organ.... seriously, and it works !
I did just happen to have the trailer behind the car and I'd just emptied it.

Bloody hell it sounds amazing !!!!!



So, is there anybody out there in happy bandAMP land who could maybe tell me something about it.

I've found out in the mean time that it's a Hammond 8022 KM Aurora.
I've just had the headphones on and fired it up... it's such a shame I'm not a pianist or an organist.

It has such a deep bass ...O! My fried nelly it sound so sweet !

...and a quote from good old Wikipedia: "Hammond tonewheel organs can be divided into two main groups: the Console models, such as the A, B, C, D, and R series, which have two 61-note manuals; and the smaller Spinet models, such as the M, L, and T series, which have two 44-note manuals. Production of tonewheel organs stopped in the mid-1970s. Hammond organs made after this time use electronic tone generation. Examples of these organs are the J/K/N series, the Hammond Aurora, and the Hammond Concorde."

I think I will learn some chords and play around a bit. Learn some organ techniques too.
The kids love it as well
It does say 'Animation by Leslie' on it with a speaker icon. As I said it sounds so sweet. It buzzes a bit if I crank it up otherwise it has a warm clear sound, wicked bass and a totally groovy automated percussion..... ok totally groovy is a bit much, it sounds like a night out at a geriatric party ... but if I tweak enough... a little bit here a little bit there I can get a thumping bass, a kick ass beat and an array of original Hammond organ sounds.
I think some sampling is called for as wall as chord learning !    
@bc ; so this one uses electronic tone generation !  That figures, it sound delicious, and I've been coming across sounds that I've heard and used in various vst plugins.

Yes Note-a-chord it has and I need to suss out how the '2 sets of drawbars' work

Try this, a basic D minor chord D F A, a D on your bass pedal, then the fun and easy part play any white key and go mental on a solo.
When you have got into it, you could try to alternate between C major ( C E G) not forgetting your C bass pedal, the good news is you can still go mental on just the white notes with your solo.
Then finally you can try some Reggae, C and D minor is a very common Reggae progression.

Funnily enough I had some time this afternoon to set it up to go through the mixer. I'm using the headphones jack as it's the only out-put I have for it. Managed to get the volumes right down enough to record some decent samples.  

I'm actually thinking of hacking it ! And piking up the signal before the speakers. I presume there's a different lower voltage signal going to the phones jack.

Do you play it currently ? Some recordings? Or is it a decorative "sound-furniture"?
Doesnīt it fire ya fantasy /creativity / composerīs potential, no?
Sometimes I wish to hear something new from the musician "kings". Not only the wordsmith "kings" -although youīre one of the most creative writers I know. Donīt let the musician fall asleep, please.

WARNING joining a community brings you together !!

The same sort of concerns were voiced by Denis a few hours ago.

Yes it's sitting under the window still. The kids do have a bash sometimes .... but I'm not in any music making state of mind at all ... I have a family .... I have to make money ... music is a thing in times of peace or for those who have nothing else to do in times of war .... I'll be honest with you I feel like I'm on the front line fighting for the only thing that is really dear to me ... my kids.
And I have work coming to me from every direction .... so I do it ! 

Merry Christmas ....

Very martial idioms.    Sounds like your "engineīs running at its limit".
Take care on yaself and stay healthy, my friend.  Donīt run into a burnout state.
Itīs a small edge to keep the balance on when requirements and expectations come from everywhere all the time .
On one hand itīs good to see youīre succeeding vocational and that ya company is growing. And the family also demands attention and has a good life.
On the other hand it means the loss of freedom, being oneself .
Yes, a small edge.................the hard phase of life..............

All the best to you and ya fam
