Three Drawbar Sets The SKX offers the advantage of three independent sets of drawbars - UPPER, LOWER & PEDAL. This means you can craft your own organ sounds using real drawbars - just like the original classic Hammond tonewheel organs. Additional Voice Sections There are now two independent sample voice sections which can be activated together to produce layered sounds. You can either layer two voices together on the same manual, or have different sampled sounds on UPPER / LOWER manuals. These additional voice sections can be layered with the drawbar sounds, and the volume can be mixed for each sound generator. Easy To Use - On Stage, At Home, Or In The Studio The SKX comes pre-loaded with 100 factory sound programs - expertly created to cover the most popular Hammond tone wheel organ presets, as well as bread & butter piano, synth, electric piano and other sounds that you�ll need every day. In addition to the 100 presets, there are 100 user location for you to store your own sounds. The expanded memory on the SKX allows you to download even more �extra� voices from the Hammond website for loading into the instrument. This means you can tailor your SKX to suit your own individual playing needs. Authentic Vintage Sound The SKX uses �Virtual Tonewheel� technology to faithly reproduce the sound of vintage Hammond organs including the legendary B-3. All the important sound characteristics (and imperfections!) of the original instrument have been analysed and recreated in detail. There are also popular Transistor Organ sounds which can be controlled in the original way, as well as 32 high quality classical pipe organ voices. The SKX is the perfect instrument to play a wide variety of musical styles. Percussion & Chrous/Vibrato The original organ percussion sound is present on the SKX and is created using Hammond�s exclusive Touch Response Percussion system - just as it is found on the vintage instruments. As the Virtual Tonewheel Generator provides tonal accuracy, the classic �Mechanical Scanner� is precisely Digitally-Modeled, providing the timeless Hammond Chorus-Vibrato effect. The effect may be applied independently to each Manual, and again, nearly every aspect of the effect can be tailored to your taste, including the characteristics relating to �age and wear� so desired by discerning players. LESLIE� SPEAKER SIMULATOR 77 years of building Don Leslie�s Masterpiece has given us the edge in developing its 21st Century Digital Edition. The HAMMOND�S essential partner is yours at every moment, with 8 factory profiles of the most famous Leslie models (122, 147, et. al.), and 8 User-definable profiles allowing you to tailor the response matching the Hammond you create with its perfect mate. The accuracy of sound is remarkable. Of course, should you wish to hook up a physical Leslie Cabinet, the traditional 11-pin jack is located on the rear panel, and the onboard controls (including the optional CU-1 �half moon� switch) perform exactly as you expect. THE EXTRA VOICE DIVISION The inclusion of Hi-Definition Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Bass, and Accordion voices compliment the Organ tones, and create in the SKX a comprehensive foundation keyboard, the backbone of any serious keyboard rig. The SKX�s keying system replicates the feel of a weighted keyboard when playing piano-type voices, yet remains supple and responsive to every Hammond Organ technique. Stepping further, the most-wanted Orchestral Voices-Strings, Woodwinds and Brass are represented, many featuring Hammond�s exclusive ProChord�, which brings complex voicing to single key play based on the chords YOU provide. An extensive Library of elective EXTRA VOICES is available without charge from www.hammondorganco.com, to expand the SKX in directions YOU choose. DIGITAL EFFECTS Two independent high-quality DSP units are aboard to provide Overdrive and other multi-effects to both the Organ and Extravoice Divisions. Over Drive Tremolo Auto Pan Wah-Wah Ring Modulator Phaser Flanger Chorus Delay Reverb Other Features OCTAVE SHIFT Digital Control allows flexibility of performance a Vintage Hammond is incapable of. You may independently raise or lower the Upper and Lower Manual�s range by one octave, allowing greater comfort of playing. PEDAL SUSTAIN A popular option for playing the Pedals or Manual Bass is Pedal Sustain, which allows the Pedal voice to smoothly decay upon release, much in the manner of a string bass. MANUAL BASS Allows the PEDAL part to be played on the LOWER manual of the SKX. You can choose from 3 modes,: Lowest played note only / Chord / Root notes as discriminated by chord played. LOWER to PEDAL Couples the LOWER manual registration to the PEDAL Part. TRANSPOSE Allows you to shift the entire pitch of the keyboard to match singers, soloists and the other instruments, or to simplify key changes. MASTER EQUALIZER Bass/Mid Gain/Mid Frequency/Treble PROCHORD Certain Extra Voice instruments are enhanced with the ProChord� function. This allows complex voicings to be played with one finger, based on chords played on the lower manual. 26 distinct chords are �parsed� by the ProChord� function, with proper passing tones provided to insure proper enharmonic continuity. MIDI MASTER KEYBOARD External Zones are available to enable the SKX to be used as a MIDI master keyboard. 3 on the Upper Keyboard, 2 on the Lower Keyboard, and 1 on the Pedal Clavier. USB TYPE �A� PORT A USB Type �A� port is included, intended for saving/loading setups, system updates, downloaded Extra Voice libraries, and the music player. The Music Player allows WAV/MP3 audio files to be controlled and played through the SKX Audio Outputs. LESLIE 11-PIN JACK A standard 11-pin Leslie jack is included on the rear panel. Attaching a Leslie here disables the Digital Leslie effect from the output, and allows the Leslie Cabinet to respond to the onboard Leslie Controls. If the attached Leslie is a 1-channel Model, the EXTRAVOICE Division remains at the LINE OUT Jacks. (requiring an additional non-rotary keyboard amplifier such as the Leslie Model LS2215 or LS2012)
