Do I need more hardware?
Hi, I have a Yamaha Clavinova keyboard connected to a Apollo Twin.
I purchased the Waterfall B3 Organ plugin.
I want to play my keyboard with the sounds of the plugin.
Do I need more hardware ? I can't make them communicate. The plugin only works with te mouse.
Please help. greetings, Henk
Gorgeous sounding organ
Complete with the preset keys on the far left of each keyboard, this is exactly what I've been hoping for since hearing Brain Auger and The Oblivion Express a few years ago. WAAAY cheaper than buying an actual B3, I can use my own keyboard like the OG now! Goes really well with an audio field widener as a second plugin, just saying, but the Leslie box microphone placement options are a hidden delight. Love your work!
iLok - UAD fooled me - last time you get my money!
UAD doesn´t allow to put iLok licenses on the (offline) computer.
My last iLok USB Dongle died for an unknown reason and I will NEVER trust this little **** again. Feeling so fooled by you UAD! Cheap move.
I have only scratched the surface, but it is quite clear that the amount of fine tuning you allow is excellent. The sound is deep and powerful, and reminds me of the days when I was lucky enough to hear a Hammond/Leslie only a few feet away from me on the stage. Add to that the huge amount of Hammond presence in so much of my favorite music, and I feel very comfortable in these deep waters!!!
Very good emulation, but lacks seperate rotary audio fx
Very good B3 emulation with a very authentic sound, but it lacks a seperate rotary audio effects plugin. The Rotary must be purchased seperately, which is a bloody shame. So at least sell the Rotary at a substantial discount to owners of Waterfall B3
Most accurate b3 and sound yet!!
I am blown away!! I work out of Malaco studios a lot where they have two vintage b3s and a vintage 122 Leslie and have had the pleasure of recording many different b3s, c3s and other great organs. This is the closest I’ve heard a software get to the authentic sound of those classic organs. I’ve been using the NI Komplete b3 and some nord patches recently in my own studio for ease and speed but this one has blown them out of the water. UA strikes again!
I'd written a 3 star review (that somehow did not appear), basing it on the notes hanging up. Turns out to be not the fault of the plug-in but my garbage midi-usb cable - those $15 jobs.
Seems to happen only when I plug in and enable BOTH the IN and Out plugs and go for polyphony. This all stopped occurring with a dedicated MIDI-USB box. It reoccurs again only when I use the cheap cable. The GUI and the sounds from this emulation are great and I'll buy it when on sale AND I have a coupon but admittedly is a tough choice as I don't really need it. My keyboard/synth has convincing built in sounds and I also have two great Leslie pedals. But still, this is too nice to not have for when that 60lb keyboard isn't with me.
You can get so many rich and different sounds.
Suono molto realistico. ottima fattura . Semplice da usare. Consigliato
A "must have" Instrument
What a joy this is to hear on my tracks. It's so close to the real thing and soooo much more convenient to use.
My only gripe is that the Leslie cannot be instanced as a plugin by itself.
...it's almost...too perfect...
I have tried many virtual organs since 2009, and this is one of the best ones I've ever played. No frills, no extras...and it sounds like some of the organs I've played in churches over the years. The only gripe I have is that I either need a Spark subscription (which I currently have) or a UA interface to use it (which I don't understand seeing as it doesn't use alot of RAM, and I already have a good interface). If ya'll could make this useable without a UA interface, I would buy this IMMEDIATELY!!!!!! Or, maybe I'll just buy UA interface...but I need this organ to remain in my arsenal!!!!!

A good selection of presets, virtual microphone choices and their position. A convincing emulation.
larger than life groovy. Loads of fun
Sounds like the real thing!
My new go to for virtual organs. Great presets for some instant inspiration.
Muy realista e inspirador para la creatividad!!!! Lo recomiendo
Fantastic, truly real sound....I can't help but use it in all my productions!...highly recommended!
B3 BE FREE
Simply the best out there
Warm and vintage
Bought it for one song. I'm gonna use it another songs too. Best Hammond emulation
A mix ready B3 emulation
This is one of the best Hammond B3 emulations I've heard. I have compared it extensively to both the AcousticSamples B5 and IK Multimedias B-3x and it holds up really well.
It's a very simple plugin with few options compared to the other two I mentioned, but for what it does it works incredibly well. While the B-3x gives you the feeling of sitting in the room with a B3 this gives you a well recorded and balanced organ that is ready to be thrown into the mix with little effort, and there is so much value to that.
In contrast to many other B3 plugins there is no effects section between the organ and the speaker. I find it a bit strange since UA have many excellent effects that they could have just thrown in there. Like the TS9 for example. Instead they chose to make it possible to drive the amp a bit further than what is normal. This works and it allows for more simplicity, but more tonal options would have been nice, since they don't provide you with a separate Leslie plugin. The only option if you want put effects in between is to buy a third party Leslie emulation.
The Leslie emulation is really good however. It is not as wide and larger than life as the one from IK, but it sound like you would expect to sound a well miced Leslie to sound like on a record, which is what most people are looking for I think. A stereo option for the drum would have been nice though.
It is very shy in the bass register, but it's possible to bring up the bass with a shelf EQ without it getting muddy so it's not a big deal. The amount of bass is by the default what you would set it in a band mix.
It would also have been nice if you could turn the click volume up a bit as they can be a bit too subtle in some cases.
But all in all this is an excellent plugin. It is more tailored towards 70's rock/soul rather than jazz. It has a lot of energy to it and it will fit well into a mix.
The ultimate B4
I didn’t expect to be impressed by yet another B4 plugin but this is seriously raised the bar even higher. Great presets too!
