Second video is a classic and I have been lucky enough to spend some time with the late Jimmy Smith over the years. 16', 5 1/3' and 8' is the easiest drawbar combination to nail and Roland did an ok'ish job keeping in mind the Hammond sound is just one of many sounds. The old VK series were not bad with the bottom three or four drawbars either....just keep away from anything above.
I have to say though....The sound of the first video is just awfull! the overdrive fizzes over the top of the track making me want to clear my throat....and the awful stereo shift from left to right of the Leslie sim is chronic and you cant listen to it through headphones without getting nauseous.
I am overly critical of the Hammond sound though having spent much of my life in and around them.
Sound aside...nice playing from the Roland demo guy whoever he is.
I'm an old B3 player too. BK9 is way too bright on the top end. First thing is you have to roll off the top end with the EQ. Might try to augment the mids and bass EQ too.The BK7m is using presets which may or may not come from the BK9s VK8 engine. Of course on the BK9 also has drawbars and a lot of other parameters to adjust with the Leslie Sim and organ .In stereo its pretty good and enough for live performance.
