Opinions on NI B4II?

Post by Pinus » Sun Jul 29, 2007 2:06 am

I'm really thinking about getting this. What do you guys think of it? Would it run good on a 1 ghz Pentium III you think? Is there any other softsynth that can do a Hammond Organ as well as the B4II?

Thanks people.

I love B4II!! It's as close to a B3 as you'll ever get. It does tonewheel modeling, cabinet modeling, mic placement, and a damn good overdrive! I would download a demo version and see how that runs on your system before purchasing the full version, that way you can tell if your computer can handle it. My laptop is equipped with a 1.8 GHz AMD Sempron processor with 512 megs of RAM, and B4II runs great on it.

Waveforms, and filters, and knobs. Oh my!

I think B4II is great, the amps and cabs are a real plus, it sounds outstanding.......I am realy happy with it.

As for other emulations NuBi LE and Spinner LE are free emulations of a B3 and Leslie. (free does not mean c**p)

Others are ZR-3 and Morphiza

Hi Pinus,
I have both the actual B-3 and NI's B-4 and lets just say the big beast never leaves the studio anymore!
It's fabulous get a nice controller with waterfall keys and you'll have Hammond organ bliss and your back won't hurt after your gigs! :)
Hardware: Akai S5000, Hammond B-3, Roland MKS-80 w/mpg-80, Yamaha S-80, FS1r
