How many of you have organs in your set-up?

Post by Xentager10159 » Sun Mar 27, 2016 6:19 am

This can include older Hammond-type organs, Yamaha PASS-era type organs, or else newer stuff, such as the Roland Atelier series... (oh, and church-type organs such as Allen models count as well)

I use either an Ace Tone TOP-8 or an original Korg CX-3 for live performance.

I used to have a Yamaha YC-45D (bought it two times, actually), and I still use a YC-30 occasionally. Depends on the sort of music I want to make.

I also used to have Farfisas like the Compact-Duo, Compact, or FAST 4 but after I had acquired the 45, I could never really warm up to the buzzy sound of the Farfisas.

I have a Hammond C3 with Leslie 122 and a Hammond M102A. The C3 is the third one I've had. I had an L122 several years ago, My first Hammond was an M3.

I also have a few Vox organs including a Super Continental, two Italian Continentals, and an American Continental.

A Farfisa Compact, Gibson G101, and Gem Model P round out the collection. The Model P is almost identical to a Vox Jaguar. Same electronics in a different cabinet.

A hammond b250 and yamaha sk50d (organ + I guess)

The vintage version of the korg cx3...I traded a yamaha yc20 for it...questionable trade I know, I'm still torn

Then I have a boss rt20 rotary pedal mainly for the cx3

A leslie 310 for both the b250 and the sk50d.

I've long had various organs as part of my keyboard setup. I started out with a cheesy Magnus chord organ (branded "Audition", for some reason). I have a Hammond model M spinet, though it needs work at the moment. My go-to organ tends to be my Farfisa Compact, in glorious red (I also have a later Farfisa VIP-345, though it doesn't work at the moment). However, there's nothing that quite comes close to the mighty Optigan...

I have two PASS Yamaha Electones - E50 and D85. The latter makes great string machine and has nice choir sound as well - made from strings sound run thru formant filters. Strings and choir have their separate trible-BBD chorus units.

Great. I'm liking what I'm hearing. Now, for another question that's more or less similar

How many of you have organs that you occasionally use as MIDI controllers?

Had a Hammond L-100 on loan for about a year (wonderful instrument).
Own a Yamaha D-80 (the smallest of the 2-manual/solo manual spinet Electones).

Also own a Gem Studium classical organ (2 manuals, AGO pedalboard - perfect for getting back into proper repertoire practice). It has MIDI in/out, and I use it to control VSTs, including the GrandOrgue virtual organ.

I used to have a Hammond XM-1 module in my set-up, along with a Yamaha DX7S, Roland D50, Yamaha P150 piano / MIDI controller and a Wavestation SR.

I have an L111 in the studio, run directly into my recording rig.
Waveforms, and filters, and knobs. Oh my!

I have 2 organs, but neither are in my setup. One is a Hammond M-143 that currently doesn't work. The other is a W.W. Putnam reed organ that works but still needs some TLC.

Well, a Hammond doesn't have the ability to do that. So, no.

I have an old 'National' branded combo organ at home which is very similar to an Acetone Top-5.
also an '80's Korg CX-3, and red Farfisa Compact for two different bands.
