Squinky Labs has released our 24th module, cleverly called “Organ Three”. It’s a Hammond-like organ plugin. While it is by no means a “Hammond emulator” or “Hammond clone”, it is in the same sonic universe. The UI and feature set are pretty close to the Hammond things.
We think it’s a fun and good sounding module. Aside from the obvious use of throwing some organ sound into your dance songs you can also get a lot of non-organ sounds out if it by adjusting attack and release, and controlling the harmonics (drawbars) with control voltages.
And for this release we are offering a special deal – Buy Organ Three and get the Surge Rotary (Leslie Emulator) for free! That a bad joke, of course. Both Squinky Labs and Surge plugins are free, but it’s still a really good sounding combination and we encourage you to try it.
Organ Three has got 144 VCOs and 32 ADSRs inside, but does not use too much CPU. It comes with a bunch of presets. There is (of course) a decent instruction manual also.
In the same update are several fixes to our old VCO EV-3. In version 1.0.10 we ported the MinBLEP code to the current VCV version, which should have been a small improvement. But instead we completely broke it. There are also some fixes to some older bugs – the PWM works better, and the DC offset has been banished from the Saw, Even, and Pulse waveforms.
