Agreed - some of the best of the G is inside.

When a B3 player is looking for a B3 substitute .. they are looking for that rich (fat) lower and mid range for comping (left side or lower manual).

I still have not heard this from Genos.. It seems like they want it to fit an arranger player.. period.

Every time it is demoed, they play it from C4, and mostly from F4.. letting the arranger or left hand type bass play.

For this intended purpose it is okay. As a clone to play straight B3, my guess it will not be desired..

Even when this video compared to a Hammond.. they only compared from C4 upper range.. I wonder why grin



Here is an example at the 5:24 mark.

The problem with Genos is with the speed of the leslie in most of the sounds go from slow to high speed in the instant rather than slowly, how did they manage to change that in the demo? interesting

They use drawbar organ voices (organ flutes)

On the preset organ voices, the leslie effects is either instant on or instant off.
If you use the organ flutes, the effect ramps up and down when you hit the switch.
However, you can use a trick on the preset voices that helps a little. When you get ready to change from leslie off to on, slowly raise the joystick until the light comes on, then press the modulation Hold button. To slow it back down, push the joystick up again, disengage the Hold button and slowly let the joystick back down. It helps a little.
Or we just buy Korgs or Rolands or Ketrons. smile
