Waterfall B3 Organ
Waterfall B3 Organ
Great sound but TERRIBLE control options
I would easily rate this 5 stars for sound quality but the fact that I can't assign control to a keyboard, makes it essentially useless. Adjusting drawbars, speed, percussion during a performance is a critical aspect of playing a hammond organ. UA expects us to do this with a mouse?!? Such a HUGE oversight. I'm so incredibly disappointed with this and the Mini Moog for this reason. Does anyone at UA actually use these instruments?
An amazing sounding plugin. Super inspiring and fun. Tones for days for tons of genres.
lovely warn sounding organ with bags of character great addition to my studio
It´s a nice one. Authentic sound. Got it in sale with additional voucher. So no regrets, just fun.
Waterfall B3 Organ
Es muy realista y su manejo recuerda 100% a un B3. El Leslie es muy bueno y la colocación de los micros y otras cosas que te permiten personalizar tu sonido de una manera precisa. También puedes obtener sonidos ásperos si lo deseas, aunque yo soy más dulce. Corre dentro de los DSPs de mi Apollo 6; y eso me llena de alegría especialmente si me encuentro ante una producción densa y cargada de elementos.
The best vst B3 so far
Love the sound, amazing!
The resson I upgraded my bundle.
Awesome stuff. Love it!
Wonderful, but could be more flexible
I 've used many B3 plugins, and I must say none sound better or offer more fidelity to the B3 sound than the Waterfall. Here's one simple improvement: Flexibility of choice of Midi numbers for choosing manuals and pedals, and flexibility of choice for choosing cc numbers. Why do they have to be fixed?
Sounds the business. Best B3 emulation I've purchased so far.
I'm no keyboard player by any stretch but I have used many B3 emulators and this is by far the most realistic. It's very simple to use especially with the number of presets available. Easy to find the right sound and easy to play. I wouldn't even begin to compare this to the real thing in functionality but sound wise, I can't tell a difference between a real B3 and the plug-in.
on going issues with this plug in
Ive got a load of UAD plugins...but on this one..when working its great..but for some reason, it seems to get overloaded and notes end up changing / depleting in quality like its overloaded..Im playing simple chords..
Also some times, the Leslie does not work...so I end up creating an aux track and bussing in the stand alone leslie..not sure why..I had contacted UAD on thi and reported the issue ..but the issue keeps resurfacing...any body else have some issues surfacing with its plug in?
It's Alive and screamin
To me it sounds the most realistic emulation so far
Six stars for sound, two stars for the rest
Waterfall sounds fantastic, but the UI is very minimalistic. The reverse color keys on the far left of the registers cannot be programed to save your own presets, there is no midi automation even for drawbars, so it has to be run in Gig Performer or Cantabile to play live (and the one time hassles of setting up all the automation). But it does sound fantastic. I also own the officially endorsed by Hammond product and find the Waterfall sound to be very complimentary in nature. Would not want to give up either one of them. Six stars for sound quality, two stars for depth of UI control.
It also requires either iLok dongle or an internet connection to use it. For some reason UAD does not provide iLok computer activation like every other plugin maker on the entire planet using iLok protection. Its a major concern for a lot of people commenting in forums. And to make matters worse, UA Connect launches every time you use it unless you uninstall UA Connect, which you can only do if you have a dongle...
Good, but details missing
Definitiv great, but the higher you play, the more harsh the sound is. Most plugins have that. also, when u go low, there is too much bass free. I played many Hammonds in my life and had Leslies too. I know what I m talking about. This is good, don't get me wrong but the last final touch on all details is not done....
A Compact B3 that sounds wonderful!
Fantastic B3 emulation that sounds super vibey and realistic! The GUI is not oversized and can even be made smaller (75% scale)! Huuuuge plus! <3 The only downside is the fact the Sound Settings (rotary mechanicals, organ key thuds, organ mechanicals and organ noise floor) are not stored in the presets! Manually setting this every time can be frustratin'. Because of that alone, I'm taking away 2 stars. Dear UA, please fix that! ;)
Sounds really good
NO CC FOR DRAWBARS?
Love the sound but with a hammond sk1 keyboard you cannot use the drawbars and other cc command in order to control the plugin.
A great organ, a little effort
No doubt, Waterfall is a great plugin, all the feel, all the nuances, all the vibe of the original. But remember, it's a plugin, so it's obviously a loooot less heavy.
Best B3 Out There
I was using another "well known" version and this one just sounds better in the low mids and over all richness of the high end. Not shrill when you push it.
Very nice model!
Great sounding Hammond with a nice stereo field! Also very nice that you can change the Leslie belt tension for customized speed change ramps. It is now my go to, over both Halion and Arturia.
