Pretty darn good Terry, Maybe a tad slow tempo, and some drawn out notes. The organ sound on the E-80 sounds pretty good. Does Roland have a Leslie rotary on/off button that perhaps could be used? It could give the recording some added depth. Anyway just my observation after a quick listen. I'm no expert sequencer, just giving my honest thoughts.

Thanks for sharing, good playing. smile

Pushing up on the bend/vibrato lever engages the fast/slow function on Roland’s.

In addition, if you have an FC7, you can assign fast/slow to one of the switches. If you don’t, I think that the control pedal input (not the expression one) can also be assigned to Leslie f/s…

Thanks for the feedback lahawk,yes the E80 has a fast/slow rotary
button and as Diki points out I have it set to a footswitch.I just used
one of the standard organs from the organ section but did`nt use the
fast /slow because I was under the impression that it only worked when using the drawbars,am I wrong?

You can assign the Leslie MFX to any sound, and the standard controls will alter speed. However, most sampled B3’s already have a slow Leslie (or fast in a few cases) already sampled in. So they sound a bit weird and phasey being run through a Leslie a second time!

I’m not too sure about the E80’s soundset, I don’t remember any completely dry G70 drawbar sounds, there were a few on the SRX-07 card, and the BK-9 has a few. Those are about the only ones I liked through the MFX.

Very creative, my friend. Never would have thought to use that style, but you really made it work for you. Neat!

All the best,

Gary cool
