  1. 9 Drawbar Organ

    File Name: 9 Drawbar Organ File Submitter: jaspeter File Submitted: 18 Oct 2013 File Category: PX-5S Stage Settings I'm just getting into the Hammond B-3 sound and I was really impressed with the 9 Layer Organ that Jimmyjames posted back in July. I started looking into the way the drawbars worked and found some pretty good pages on the net that have some of the more popular registrations. Unfortunately, you need 9 drawbars to do that and the way they were tied together in the 9 Layer Organ didn't allow you to adjust all of them independently. So, I wanted to build something that would allow me to experiment. This really won't be a performance Stage Setting as much as a "play around with" Stage Setting that you can then solidify into different presets as you find them. I really think that the key to pulling off a B-3 sound will be in presets because there aren't 30-some-odd drawbars on the PX-5S, for good reason! Here are some of the key notes you'll need to be aware of for this stage setting: Drawbars: There are nine "drawbars". On the Hammond, they are organized this way: 16' 5 1/3' 8' 4' 2 2/3' 2' 1 3/5' 1 1/3' and 1'. They are on the PX-5S as follows, respectively: ModWheel, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, K1, K2. Rotary effect: I like being able to experiment with these effects, so I moved them to K3. K4: This controls the volume of the percussion. More on that below. Pedal 1: This switches between 2nd percussion/slow decay and 3rd percussion/fast decay. I didn't think the 3rd harmonic sounded very nice when it suspended for too long, but you can adjust that as you like by editing the Stage Setting parameters. Pedal 2: This turns the percussion on and off. Percussion: I don't have a Hammond B-3 to sit next to, but I do have the internet! I found a good YouTube video in which some of the different sounds and registrations were isolated: . With the laptop plugged into the audio in port of the PX-5S (good thinking, Casio!) I played this video through the same speaker as the keyboard. True to some of the other articles I read, the percussion sounded quite marimba-like, so that's on the percussion channel (zone 3). The way the original organs were built, percussion only happened for the first note struck in a legato passage, i.e. as long as any keys were held down, no more percussion sounded. To duplicate this effect, I created a phrase that plays one single note, and then dummy-fill (with expression controller values) to extend the phrase for awhile. Percussion will repeat if you hold down a note long enough, but at a tempo of 20, it hadn't repeated after 2 minutes of sounding a note. I think that'll do. If you want to bypass this effect and have percussion strike every note, regardless of other keys held down, simply turn off the arpeggio button. You will also need the OrganPercuss phrase file in slot 910 for this feature to work. Click here to download this file
  2. OrgAnne, Jason & Terry View File This is my favourite organ sound which I use a fair amount. It is based upon Jaspeter's excellent 9 draw organ, which I have tweaked to my taste. It has then been further tweaked by Terry. I am very pleased with the results. I hope that it may be of use to someone. Pedal 2 controls the rotary speed Pedal 1 - rotary brake Knob 1 - vibrato/chorus Knob 2 - reverb/delay Knob 3 - rotary fast rate Knob 4 - percussion volume Mod wheel - drawbar 1 Sliders 1-6 - drawbars 2-7 Submitter Knuckles Submitted 10/27/2016 Category Organs

    Sliders 1-4 control volume for 4 overlaid Hammond type organ tones. Zone 1 - Rock Organ 2 Zone 2 - Percussion Organ 1 Zone 3 - Dark Organ 1 Zone 4 - GM Organ 2 (each zone full keyboard) Rotary is OFF for all tones, since I use an offboard rotary sim (H&K Rotosphere). Rotary can be added via Edit-->Tone for each zone.

  6. Indonesian Nights

    Version 1

    The attached MP3 is a sample of the tune that inspired me to do this song. I didn't feel comfortable putting it in the "Song Ready" list, since the tune is fairly obscure. I was listening to Tony Monaco - Celebration when this track came on. Due to its lower tempo and cool sound, I wanted to try to duplicate it. This is my take on it, the organ sound is all from this stage setting on the PX-5S (explained below) and the backing track is from my android smartphone running IRealb. This setting simulates a two-manual organ, with the split point being at middle-C. Here are the settings for each manual: Lower - Registration 666000000 (sort of), rotary on (permanently) Upper - Registration 008666000 (sort of), percussion 3rd harmonic, rotary can be turned on and off The tweaky bits: Mod wheel - overall volume S1 - Overdrive S2 - Percussion decay speed S3 - Percussion volume S4 - Lower manual volume S5 - Upper manual volume S6 - Reverb K1 - Rotary Slow rate (not used, since I didn't include a way to switch between slow and fast) K2 - Rotary Fast rate K3 - Chorus/vibrato K4 - Wet/Dry mix Pedal 1 - Percussion on/off Pedal 2 - Upper manual rotary on/off (This seems to take two taps the first time you use it in this stage setting, thereafter it functions normally. I haven't figured that one out yet.) It should operate correctly without uploading the associated arpeggio needed to make the percussion envelope work properly. That still kinda weirds me out, but it seems to work.

  8. Whiter Shade of Pale

    Version 3

    917 downloads

    Of course an organ upload section can't be complete without A Whiter Shade of Pale. The MP3 starts at the lead-in to the chorus where the glissando kicks in with the C3 chorus setting. Yes, I know that the background is kind of cheesy in the MP3, but I usually play with a group, so I wasn't too concerned with sequencing a better backup. Here are the files this stage setting expects: - The drum set (JasonSet1) in user area 20. This is optional, and originally I put the lower keyboard manual here instead. - The phrase OrganPercuss in user area 910. This, too, is optional. It just lends to the Hammond sound by hitting the 2nd harmonic percussion only at the beginning of a legato phrase. Make sure to turn LOOP: On and write it back into slot 910. The load defaults to LOOP: Off, for some reason. - The WhiterShade.ZPH for the drum track phrase in user area 911. Other notes: - The sliders 1-3 control relative volumes of the drum set, organ, and bass, respectively. - Slider 6 controls reverb. - Footswitch 1 turns the C3 rotary speaker option on (for the chorus). - Footswitch 2 turns the drum phrase on. - Knobs 1-4 control the equalizer. It's a shame that you can't string DSPs together, because I really like the sound of the organ through the MStack amp simulator. It might be possible to replace the C3 rotary chorus with the native PX-5S chorus and still get a good sound while routing through the Distort/Amp simulator. That's left as an exercise to the user. I should also mention that I got the information for the organ registrations and other settings from http://www.procolharum.com/awsop_reg-cerdes.htm

  11. 9 Layer Organ

    Version 1.06

    554 downloads

    This is a version of a nine tone layer organ similar to a B3 organ. I worked with a distinctly colored clone wheel to compare the PX-5S tones against. It will never be exact, but I think it is in the same zip code (perhaps the same ballpark if you use a Neo Vent) and could get you through a club gig if you don't have a clone wheel. It contains two hex layers in Zones 1 and 2 and uses all twelve available layers. Only nine layers will sound on any one note presuming the sliders are all in the open position. Twelve layers are needed to simulate the duplicative use of the tone wheels in the B3 in the extreme ranges of the keyboard (see excerpt from Sound on Sound magazine Hugh Robjohns article below regarding this - link to full article http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul03/articles/hammondb3.asp). Zone 3 contains a truncated version of an organ tone to bring in the percussion. The key range of this Stage Setting is limited from C2 to C7 so keys above and below this level will be silent. Slider/Knob settings: Slider 1 controls the equivalent of the 16' and 8' drawbars. Slider 2 controls the equivalent of the 4' and 2' drawbars. Slider 3 controls the equivalent of the 5 1/3' and 2 2/3' drawbars. Slider 4 controls the equivalent of the 1 3/5' drawbar. Slider 5 controls the equivalent of the 1 1/3' drawbar. Slider 6 controls the equivalent of the 1' drawbar. Knob 1 controls the distortion level. Knob 2 controls the vibrato/chorus setting. Knob 3 controls 3rd percussion. Knob 4 controls reverb. Mod wheel and Pedal 1 toggle rotary speed. "The New B3 has 96 digital tonewheel generators whereas the original B3 (and its siblings) had 91 active tonewheels (although there were actually 96 physical wheels in the generator, the unused ones being there to maintain the mechanical balance). However, if you do the sums, you'll find that there are actually 109 different tones required to produce nine harmonics on a 61-note keyboard. The original Hammonds overcame this problem by cheating — partial octaves were repeated at the top end of the keyboard, the repeating starting on different notes and octaves depending on the drawbar. On a stock B3 the 2-foot drawbar repeats only the top 'C' from the octave below, while the 1-foot drawbar repeats an octave and a half starting from the 'G', and the intermediate drawbars start repeating somewhere in between. This arrangement is usually referred to as 'fold-down' and it is an essential element of the subtle but characteristic tonal quality of the B3 and its siblings."
