**Includes Free B4 Tonewheel Vintage Collection Library

The B4 is a VST-based tonewheel organ combo, completely capturing the sound of the classic B3 organ and rotating speaker. The B4 takes the popular tonewheel organ into new territory. Added flexibility in sound generation and seamless integration into the recording environment make this possibly the best organ since the original.

The Native Instruments Synthesis Research Lab carried out a painstaking analysis of the electro-mechanical sound generation and tube circuitry of the best organ and speaker cabinet combinations. The resulting software model, based on the same NSP-technology as NI’s award-winning Reaktor modular system, produces sound virtually indistinguishable from the original hardware. The flexibility of advanced software modeling makes possible a new degree of realism.

Unlike a sample-based instrument, the NI B4 accurately models such subtle details as harmonic foldback, drawbar crosstalk and loudness robbing. The result is a warm and powerful sound over the entire range of the keyboard, complete with the subtle tonal shades that improve both playability and musicality.

The B4 is capable of all the variations one expects from this type of organ, and is suitable for any flavor of music, be it Rock, Jazz or House. A "rear panel" gives access to numerous adjustment parameters, which allow the sound to be tailored for particular applications. You can even use the B4 to process other sounds. Just plug it in as a VST Insert Effect and apply any combination of Scanner Vibrato, Tube Overdrive and Rotating Speaker effect to your audio tracks
