LEGEND SOUL

ÖVRIGT
NYHET
Viscount presenterar LEGEND SOUL 273 och SOUL 261 under NAMM-mässan i början på juni!
Dessa 2 modeller kommer i produktion i september-oktober.
OBS! Denna nya serie har även inbyggda PIPORGLAR och TRANSISTORORGLAR!
Och man kan använda olika orglar på pedalen och klaviaturerna samtidigt!
LEGEND SOUL 273 OCH 261
DE FÖRSTA DIGITALA TONHJULSORGLARNA MED 9 KONTAKTER I KLAVIATURERNA
Legend Soul serien som tagits fram i samarbete med Joey DeFrancesco, utmärker sig för sin kraftfulla teknik som har lyckats återskapa den ikoniska 9-kontakters mekaniken i klaviaturerna digitalt
Dess innovativa teknologi, i kombination med den förbättrade keyclick-simuleringen, ger Legend Soul 273 och Legend Soul 261 en unik rikedom av de harmoniska komponenterna och ännu mer realistisk återskapande av ljudet.

FRANCESCO FRÅN VISCOUNT FÖRKLARAR FÖR NUVARANDE ÄGARE AV LEGEND
For current Viscount Legend series owners. Francesco from Viscount explains a glimpse into the update’s heading our way. You need to decipher what pertains to the Legend series and not the new Soul line.
Dear members,
I am Francesco from Viscount International and I represent Legend organs in Italy.
I am writing this post to be clear about a few things after a great NAMM show for us.
Last week we presented the Legend Soul organs line and the new Rotary speakers developed by Viscount.
The new Legend Soul 273 and 261 won’t replace the current Legend line but some of the new features (as the new Vibrato/Chorus improvements new Simulation, Tweaked sound and too other new features to mention) will be shared by both the lines after the update. The new 9 contacts keyboard system is our biggest improvement in terms of realistic keyboard feeling and is a unique feature researched by purists.
Soon we will release  audio and video to give you more info on these great instruments. I am sure that those who tried it at NAMM (even if the fair is not the best place to play and record) understand what I am talking about.
The current Legend(s) will be improved consistently, while the new Legend Soul will represent our top class organ, especially for those who are not only looking for a beautiful sound generation, but also for the 9 Contacts keyboard feeling.
The organs at NAMM were prototypes, without 100 % of the features working, but you will have examples to listen to soon. Below you can see all the new features incorporated in the Legend Soul organs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The new organs in the Legend SOUL line incorporate new hardware and software improvements.
Hardware Improvements
- 9 contacts keyboard (patent pending) : Viscount has designed and developed a new keyboard capable of reproducing the 9 contacts that made the phonic wheel organ and its creator, Laurens Hammond, famous. The system consists of both physical components and software processing to virtually reproduce the feeling of the mechanical organ.
- New LCD screen to navigate the menu and its functions
- Mod Wheel
- Wooden top for improved structure and aesthetics
- New Red Walnut colour (available in black too)
- black octaves now playable (i.e for external sounds)
Software IMPROVEMENTS
- Additional organ models (Transistor & Pipe)
- New Rotary simulation
- Enhanced effects
- Contact setting parameters
- Lower manual section sendable to a different amp
- New pedals basses
In particular:
Additional organ models
3 Tonewheel Factory ( JDF-30, JDF-50, JFD-70 )
3 Tonewheel User (BC-1936, B3-1956, A100-1961)
2 Transistor (Farfisa, Vox)
2 Pipe (Symphonic, Baroque)
17 Pedals (Tonewheel, Farfisa, Vox, Symphonic, Baroque, Organ Bass, Upright Bass, Finger Bass, Fretless Bass, Picked Bass, Slap Bass, Rhodes Bass, Tuba Bass, Synth Bass 1, Synth Bass 2, Synth Bass 3, Synth Bass 4)
After production, it will be possible to expand the number of models available for the 3 organ families (Tonewheel, Transistor, Pipe) and the bass family (Pedals).
For the Tonewheels we already have the models from the previous Legend, for the Transistors we could think of other models from the period such as the Moog Cordovox, Ace Tone, Viscount Imperial, for the Pipes the Theater Organ, Romantic Organ.
ROTARY SIMULATION
The rotary simulation was rewritten in order to have a simulation very close to the original.
For this purpose, the most famous historical models were analysed and measured in an anechoic chamber and the most commonly used microphonation modes were evaluated. There will therefore be different configurations to emulate some of the original models. In this review, the respective amplifier and drive models were also emulated with 'virtual analogue' algorithms.
VIBRATO/CHORUS
The Vibrato/Chorus simulation was revised to better approximate the original. For this purpose some original Hammonds were measured and analysed.
NEW EFFECTS
Ring Mod, Flanger, Phaser, Wah, Tremolo, Delay.
