View Full Version : Not a real Hammond but a real Leslie

Hi guys. Here is a track from a live gig I played in last year. I actually played bass guitar at this gig but the organ part sounded so good I thought I would post it here. This is a Pink Floyd tribute band called 'In The Flesh." We gig a few of times a year. It's a 9 piece band. 2 guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, 3 female background vocalists and a sax player.
The keyboard player's organ sound is a little Voce organ MIDI module ran through a Leslie 910. It works very well for what it is.
This is "Another Brick In The Wall."</p>
This was recorded onto 8 tracks bussed straight from the hall's sound board into a laptop computer. I finally got my hands on the master tracks and am in the process of mixing the entire 2 hour show.

kenny, that sounds Dashed amazing!!</p>
Of course, the whole tribute sound blows me away, so good! Gotta keep that one in itunes.....</p>
Actually, I see in your own arsenal you have an 01RW..... you don't know any folks with the orchestral PCM card perchance?</p>

Brendon, thank you for the compliment.</p>
It is actually an O3R-W but they are very similar. I have a friend who has an O5R-W and the sound banks are almost identical. I looked for years trying to find any kind of cards for the O3R-W but there seems to be nothing out there anymore so I gave up. Anyone who has one is hanging on to it.
To tell you the truth, I really don't use my stand-alone synths much any more. The software synths and samplers have gotten soooooo good, and they interface with the DAW so well, that I hardly ever even turn one of the synths on. About once a month, if I remember, I will power them up and let them run all day long. I learned a long time ago that audio gear and electronic musical instruments like to get warm and well saturated. When they sit idle for too long is when they start to have failures and problems. So far, everything still works so my theory seems to be justified at this point.

I haven't gotten onto soft synths yet, in fact I haven't sequenced for about four years while I was retraining, starting a new business and modding my Hammond and leslie, but during the first year and a bit my pcm card died leaving the unfinished sequences with a bunch of odd sounds. P'raps I'll match 'em up with newer sounds on soft synths. The only thing is the more unique sounds are likely to be hard to match and the general reaction to layering and aftertouch is going to be different, meaning a big job rescuing those unfinished tracks.</p>
Oh well! Gotta be done I guess!</p>
