Beautiful, but unreliable for me

I LOVE how the B3 sounds, when it's working right, but sometimes it only makes harsh noises for me, and on one occasion it started out fine but then suddenly would only play the lowest octave of an already recorded MIDI track. I suspect these are compatibility problems—I'm running this in Cubase on an M2 Mac—but the problems do seem to be unique to this one instrument. I tend not to try to solve these kinds of problems, but instead to switch to a different instrument (even if I don't like it as well), so that I can keep working. In other words, some of the blame for this might be on me and my work habits. I'm more an end user than a tech-person.

More than an emulation… it’s an instrument

I used to think B3 organ plug-ins were the same… That is until I tried this one. It surpasses all the others, not only in sound, but in feel as well. Something about Waterfall B3 that allows me to play this thing like an actual instrument as opposed to a simple plug-in emulation. It has immediately become my go to organ plug-in.

Getting the real sound for unreal small money!

Very useful in the studio...

Full and juicy

From using competitors B3 emulations, this felt like a wonderful and complete update. Fills in its space in the mix and can carry a song as a lead instrument if you like. The leslie has a wonderful fullness, texture and space to it.

Sounds Good

This plugin sounds good, is easy to use, and is indeed usable. I am not going to give it a neck in neck comparison with the real hardware because I don't have enough experience with the real hardware. My only complaint, that during a session that goes for much more than an hour, the recorded tracks start doing random strange things (strange random notes and settings...I am using Cubase) and you either have to mute the track or reload the project that you are working on...fortunately the random changes don't save.

Buen audio pero…

El audio es increíble, el unico problema que en pro tools a veces falla y las notas quedan sonando si parar. Para arreglarlo hay que desactivar y volver a activar el plugin

Waterfall B3 Organ

Overall, I can't recommend the Waterfall B3 Organ plugin highly enough. Whether you're a seasoned organist looking for an authentic virtual instrument or a producer seeking to add organic, vintage textures to your tracks, this plugin is a game-changer.

Best VST Organ I've got to know so far...

...unfortunately UA Connect gets opened in the Background each time I open a DAW project containing a UAD instrument which brings my CPU and RAM down

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.

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?
