The Legend Solo uses the latest in tonewheel modelling technology allowing exigent musicians to play without compromise the fabulous organ sound.

EASY TO PLAY

When you sit down at the Legend Solo , all you have to do is turn it on and play. Everything you need and are familiar with, on a classic tonewheel organ, is there right where it belongs. No confusing menus or LCD screens full of features that you most likely don't or won't use. After all, it's an organ.

 

INTERFACE

FULL SET OF DRAWBARS

If you have been playing a classic tonewheel organ, then you will feel at home with the Legend Solo . It has two full sets of 9 drawbars plus two pedals drawbars. In split or double mode on set of drawbars is assigned to the local keyboard, while the other is assigned to the second manual (external if in double mode).

 

HARMONIC PERCUSSION

Located right where they belong are the switches to control the On/Off, Soft/Normal volume, Fast /Slow decay, 2nd and 3rd harmonic.

 

REALTIME CONTROLS

Volume; Reverb; Drive; Keyclick; Crosstalk; Tone Controls; Percussion Volume and Decay; Tuning.
Rotary Speed Control; Split/Double; Octave Up; Pedal to Lower; Transpose.

VIBRATO AND CHORUS

KEYBOARD

WATERFALL KEYBOARD

Along with the best sound and being easy to play, the Legend Solo has a heavy-duty 61-notes keyboard with the feel of an organ, not a synthesizer or cheap portable keyboard. If you play pedals, then you can purchase the optional 25 full-sized console pedals. The Legend pedals are heavy-duty and are same radius as the classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel right.

SOUND GENERATION

LATEST IN MODELING TECHNOLOGY

The new VISCOUNT by KeyB Legend Solo organ, designed in cooperation with NEWTONE, uses the innovative TMT (Tonewheel  Modeling Technology) able to perfectly clone the classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that can't be obtained by traditional sampling. Legend Solo reproduces also important characteristics of a tonewheel organ including cross talk, tonewheels flutter, electric hum and octave tapers. Moreover there is also an accurate Rotary Simulation. Maybe you don't have one or it's not convenient to take a rotary speaker with you. Don't worry! The new Legend Solo Simulation is incredibly realistic. It's so good you'll have to look twice to see where the rotors are, this is because of the TMT engine.
