B3 Drawbars in Solo Situations

call HART crazy .. but

I just found this on YouTube … and thought you might enjoy it!

Note: information from YouTube

The B3 is an amazing and much misunderstood instrument. By misunderstood, I mean, most people are hit and miss in regards to the drawbars. Taken from the Demystifying B3 Drawbars title, master musician PJ Morgan demonstrates applying drawbar settings in a solo setting. Demystifying B3 Drawbars is paired with the B4 II (Native Instruments) tutorial taught by Tim Carmon (eric clapton). For more information about these and other tutorials, check out www.HowAudio.com.

Couldn’t you add a little sustain, and perhaps decay as well, to the accompanying keys (lower keyboard), to it doesn’t die out every time you switch settings, for a smoother play?

Also, I’d prefer the main tune to be louder, and the accompany to be a tad lower – but that’s preferences ๐Ÿ™‚

You’d be an awesome teacher, I am envious ๐Ÿ™‚

You obviously don’t know how a Hammond works…. stick to something like Piano.

I was responding to the person asking if the guy in the video would add sustain to the lower manual. He doesn’t understand that the beauty of a Hammond is that the notes last as long as you hold them.

@mindingosafado They are preset keys, you can save your sounds on each key and when you press them your sound changes. The last two keys are controlled by the drawbars, I think the c key is controlled by the second part of drawbars and Bb by the first but I’m not sure.. Hope I helped!!
