    I'm looking for a plug-in that will make my Yamaha workstation sound like a Hammond B3. Has anyone used this PLug-in before, and can you tell me a little about your experience with it?

    It's incredible. It's scary. You hear the 60hz hum in the Leslie. Check it out. The only drag is I don't think there is an interface that will let you adjust the drawbars while you are playing. I might be wrong.

    i'm unable to double-check right away, but, i'm pretty sure, you can adjust them with a mouse on the screen (as well as everything else)

    i have a trackball which sits on the side of the keyboard when i play (and has saved me a lot of wrist inflammation)

    any soft synth is worth getting from native instruments! the best plug-in software ive ever seen.

    Thanks for the info guys. I just want to make sure it'll work with my Yamaha PRS282. It's not a pro quality keyboard, but then I'm not a pro quality keyboard player. Can I use the MIDI output on my keys and go in through the MIDI connectors on the DIGI 001?

    You can use any keyboard as a controller for the B4, as long as your computer has MIDI in and your keyboard has MIDI out. the B4 can be used as a stand-alone synth, or you can use it as a VST instrument...I think there's even a MAS and some other options, as well as standard OMS support.

    There are some user mods that will let you use the Tascam US-428 as a MIDI controller for the drawbars and other parameters on the B4.

    The B4 DOES sound great, although I haven't been in the room with a live B4 before.

    HTH!

    B4 got my vote also. No better plugin exists IMHO.

    The psr 282 is not a bad key board, The keys feel really good, they are velocity sensitive, and they have after touch, it probably cost about the same as a cheap midi controller but you get decent sounds as a plus. Using it as a controller for soft synths, is an awesome idea, and with the cost and quality of these such as Native instruments, gigastudio, and reason, you will haqve pro quality sound, at garge band prices.
