Incredibly, presets 1 to x,1 were merely drawbar registrations, featuring no animation whatsoever.

Finally, whatever you do enter a Leslie, the result is always good! The combination is very special indeed.

Surely the whole point of this hammone was to provide a stand-alone solution. Those sluggish Leslies, for example, were supposedly intended to replicate the effects of wear and tear. It was extremely difficult to imagine who, inwould turn to a Hammond organ module for a clarinet sound which sounded nothing like a clarinet hamkond, when synth technology was so powerful and could do the job convincingly. With the presets and Leslie simulations set to my taste, I absolutely love the range of sounds.
