1. Welcome to the Class: Hi there. It's Thomas George. Welcome to this class. All about the vintage. Be free organ in logic Pro TEM to this organ is a software emulation off the Hammond B three organ. And in this class, I'm going to show you the essentials how to use this organ. So in this class, I'm going to teach you how to use the drawer bars. I'm also going to show you the presets, show you the main controls also show you how to set up your midi keyboards and then have a look at the road to cabinet so you can get the best possible sound for this organ. We're then going to look at the options, the effects and the essentials for the expert window. So if you're logic, pro 10 user and you want to know how to use this organ that make sure you join me in this class 2. Vintage B3 Introduction: hi there. And welcome to this next section. I'm going to be looking at the vintage Be free organ. So this is a software instrument. However, it's actually emulation off the Hammond be free organ. So you may have seen one of these Hammond organs before they actually have to keyboards on a bass pedal so the two keyboards are actually called off. Emanuel on a lower manual on the bass pedal is actually called base puddle. Some of the vintage be free. We can actually control all of these different organs with one media keyboard, or we can actually separate it over free, different media devices. So we could have two different midi keyboards for the upper on the lower manual. And you could even use midi foot pedals to control the pedals. So the B free organise also used with the Leslie Speaker cabinet. So this is an amplifier on the loudspeaker and actually changes the sound by rotating. And if I just click on this rotor cabinet section, you can see here the speaker that Leslie Speaker, which we're going to look at later on in this section, so I'm just going to go back over to the main tab on the main thing that notice here these different sliders, a visa called draw bars. So the drawer bars allowed to change the sound by adding more harmonics. And we're also going to look at this in a lot more detail in this section. We also have a number of different presets you can use in this vintage. Be free, and this is for the upper manual and also for the lower manual, which will look at in this section as well. Also, there's an options window, which allows us to control a few more things in the vintage be free organ. We can also add various different effects, such as reverb e que wow and distortion and then going across. We also have this expert window, which allows you to control more intricate details. Inside this vintage. Be free organ. So that's just a quick introduction into this vintage be free organ. In the next lecture, I'm going to give you a more in depth overview off this organ, so thank you for watching this introduction video, and I'll see you in the next one 3. Brief Overview: Hi there. Welcome to this lecture. I'm going to give you a quick overview off the vintage Be free organ. So, like I said previously, the vintage be free organ, and she emulates the Hammond B three organ so the Hammond be free. Orga has the upper manual or the keyboard at the top, and then the lower manual, the keyboard at the bottom and also the foot pedals. So in this vintage be free organ. We can control the upper manual alot manual on the pedal separately so you can actually play this back on multiple many devices. Or you can play them back all on one Midi keyboard. Because the Hammond vintage organ is a little old, it does have a few faults, but these faults also give it a certain character, such as the bleed between these different draw bars and also some clicking sounds when you press and release the keys. It was the same as a Hammond B three organ. We have a few different effects in this vintage be free organ. We have vibrato and chorus, and we also have distortion in this main window and then going across to the effects. One day we have reverb eq you wah wah on distortion. We can also control the speed after Leslie Speaker right now is on break. But we can change this too slow. We can see here that Leslie Speaker rotating. And we can change this too fast and it will rotate faster. Just gonna put it back to break from that, we can see it slow down on break, going across to the rotor cabinet section. We have a few different controls for the Leslie speaker. We can see that, Leslie. Speaker here on the right, and you can choose the mic position and even the type of speaker. We're going to look at this more detail later on in this section. I just want to give you a quick overview off this vintage. Be free organ. Okay, next is options button. And here you can make some quick changes to the master click on percussion sounds and also some effects for the vibrato and chorus, which is in the main window. And also some more controls, which we're going to look at later on. Okay, let's get back to the main window on in the next lecture. We're going to dive a lot deeper into this main window, so thanks for watching. And I'll see you in the next one 4. Main Windows - Controls: Okay, let's now have a look at this main window in a lot more detail. So let's first have a look at the drawer bus. So that's these bars over here so the vintage be free actually has 20 different draw bars. So 94 the upper manual, two for the pedals on nine for the lower manual. So right now we can only control the top Emanuel. But later on the show you how you can set up the low manual on the pedals with one midi keyboard or even over multiple midi keyboards. So moving these drawer bars actually allows me to add or remove certain harmonics so you can make the sound a lot simpler. Or we could make the sound a lot richer. By adding more of these harmonics, the Hammond be Free is a draw bar organ, and it's different to a pipe organ. However, on each of these draw bars, there are numbers which are in feet, and these are for naming the drawer bars, which actually came from the length off pipes for pipe organs. However, you can see here we have 16 feats, so on the pipe organ, the lowest one here the longest one will actually produce the lowest frequency. We can see here that numbers do get shorter and these will produce higher frequencies. So each of these drawer bars actually represents a sine wave on when we ADM or of these sine waves actually creating more complex tone on what we're using here is basically additive synthesis, so adding these different sideways together to create more complex tone. All we cannot she reduce this certain drawer bars to create a more simple tone. So right now, I'm actually going to get rid of all of these different draw bars. Apart from the 1st 1 a new belt to here. It's a very simple tone. Now I'm going to add a few more of these. Drop us. It should be able to hear there were creating a more complex sound with richer harmonics, so recommend getting this vintage be free up logic pro 10 on, then just playing. If you call, it's playing a few notes and then gradually increase and decrease some of these different draw bust just so you can hear difference when you add different drop bars and take them away, making the sign more complex or more simple. If we dragged them all the way up, it still will be able to hear a bit of sound because this vintage beef organ emulates the Hammond B three organ, which has that believed from the different draw bars. So you still get some sound, so just be aware of that as well. So I'm just going to recall their factory default again. The preset dropped down here and go down to recall default. You can also see here that we have this rotating speaker, which is the lessee speaker for Click on the Road to Cabinet menu. Here we can see this Leslie speaker for Go Back to Maine. We can see it rotating here. So this rotating speaker emulation would give us that classic organ sounds. If I play called now on and then I go down to break and the bottom left, and then I go over too fast and then go back to break. You can hear when we have this speak emulation, rotating. It gives us that real, classic organ sound, which can be great notice. Down here we have thes free, different buttons. We have controls preset on splits. That's first look it controls, which will give us some effects. So here we have vibrato and chorus. I do personally prefer to use that Leslie Speaker so the rotating cabinet rather than the vibrato. However, the vibrato effect is here as well. If you'd like to use that. And we also have a chorus effect which we can select here. So we contend for Brosseau and the chorus on a rough for the upper or the lower manual. Right now we're just dealing with the upper manual. So I'm just going to ignore the one that says lower and just make sure it's on over here, so I'm just going to make sure this speaker is on break. So we have free different vibrato controls here. V one V two on every free and free, different course controls C one, C two and C free and C zero is no effect. We can also go over to the options window, and here we have some more controls for these effects. So let's just go back to the main window and controls on him going to select Chorus one and then go back over its options and just play a chord and you be able to hear me change the rate on the depth. Okay, Lets go back over to Maine, then controls again and this time going to choose Librato, too. Let's go back over two options. So the depth I will still show here, but no actually going to change the vibrato only the right way. Whoa, seeking here. There, when I move, the step dial doesn't actually change librato, however, the doll still there, even when we have brought it selected so you can increase or decrease the rate by going over to the options window. Let's go back to the main window on Go back onto controls. And now let's have a look at the distortion dial, so this control just allows us to add some drive. And if we go over to the effects when though we have a few more controls here for the distortion, we have tone drive and you can choose the type off distortion. So this could be great. Add a bit of drive to your sound. Let's choose classic baby soft on. Just pump up the drive waste of time and get really nasty Nolly sound that if you wish okay for now, I'm just going to turn off the distortion with this on off. Switch in the effects about two main go back to controls and then for the upper manual, Turn off the vibrato on the course. Okay, so let's now have a look at the percussion section in the bottom, right of the control tub in the main window. So you may hear percussion, and you may think drums. But percussion for an organ like this actually means the sound of you pressing the keys. So this emulate some of the sounds on the Hammond B three organ so you can turn on the percussion here. However, the percussion is only for the upper manual. So the lower manual on the pedals won't have the percussion effect. Let's have a look at this on the far right, the harmonic. So this actually adds 1/3 or a second to the attack of the notes when you press the note down. So is that tapping sound, huh? The feds a bit more obvious. So the seconds a bit more subtle because it's closer to the original. Okay, And then we have this time switch, which allows us to switch between fast on slow decay. So that's when the percussion sound actually comes in and then fades away, then going across. We have the volume off this percussion sound soft. Oh, normal. Normal is a bit louder. That's what this deferred. So it's a bit more obvious who have normal? Uh huh. And then soft, which is a bit more subtle, and we can turn the percussion on or off. So this is really the global controls, the percussion. We do actually have a lot more controls for the percussion and eruptions over here, which we're going to look at in the options video a bit later on. Okay, so that's the main window. With the controls tab selected in the next lecture. We're going to look at the next tab, which is the presets, So thanks for watching, and I'll see in the next one. 5. Main Window - Presets: Okay, let's now have a look at the preset case, which is under this preset tub here in the main window. So on the upper manual, we have 12 different presets. And also on the lower manual, we have 12 different presets. So these different presets will change the position off the drawer bars so you can just click view of these. And you see these drawbacks change. I play a chord now and swapped to another preset. You'll hear the sound change. Ah, uh ah. And same for the presets for the lower manual. So if you look at the presets, they actually are the shape off an operative on a keyboard. That's because on the Hammond be free organ all the way to the left. We have some keys that are inverted in color, and these allow you to actually change through the different presets. And we can actually assign our midi keyboard to select the different presets. You'll notice as well. We have the shape off the presets on this button here. But if we change the drawer bars, notice changes the display real time as well could be quite useful feature. So if you change the shape of the presets, you can see update in real time. So, like I said, before we can assign this to amid a keyboard to see zero will actually clear the presets that may complain. The notes going got from C zero to select the different presets. So go across. We have this section that says Select via keyboard. So if you have this turned on So for example, if I press see Shop zero on my midi keyboard which is in front of May, you can see there it's swapping the preset. If I now press, the zero is going to slap this preset here. And then the shop on A and F and so on and so forth. We can only select these presets, though if we have selected by keyboard turned on here but for now, going to turn this off. Okay, we also have this upper morphed dial here, and this allows me to more through the different presets. So the moment if I play a chord, it won't actually do anything. We do need to go over two options, then go over to the morph section here and then go to range. And this allows us to choose Arrange for the more presets. So, for example, if I choose GI, this means it will morph from the preset on the far right, which is to be down to the G notes. So if we go back to the main window and if I drive across this morph slider is going to morph between this first precept, which is the B one down into the G, so it will more between the different presets, depending on what range we select. But if we have the range on off this morph slider weren't worth it all. So just be aware if the more FDLE isn't working Grover two options and changed a range from off to another necked. Okay, so that's the preset tub. It allows you to juice and presets inside the vintage Brief free. Remember as well. You do have various different presets in logics. If you go to the drop down box here in the top left lows, a different presets you can choose, so you can always select some of these well. But learning the basics of sound design and learning how to use an instrument from scratch will really allow to dive deep into the simple instrument. Rather than just selecting presets, however, presets could be a good way to stop. So thanks for watching. And I'll see you in the next lecture. We're going to look at this split up. 6. Main Window - Split: Okay, let's now have a look at this split tub here. So with the vintage, be free. You complaint with free, different media cables at the same time, if you wish. Or you can play the upper the pedals on the lower manuals, all on the same midi keyboard. So over here on the left. If we have single selected, this will just play the up Emanuel. And if we go down to split here, we can play the pedals, the lower manual on the op Emmanuel all on one midi keyboard. And if you get into multi, we can play the upper and the lower manuals on separate midi keyboards. And we can also play the pedals with many foot pedals or have another media cable if we wish. So the original Hammond B three organ will have another manual alot Emanuel on foot pedals on. We can recreate this with midi keyboards, and if you have midi foot controllers, you can do that as well. I don't actually have midi foot controller, but if you wish you could be as an authentic as possible of this vintage, be free instrument if you wish to have the foot pedals as well. So far, it's just being on single. I have been playing the upper manual with one midi keyboard. However, in this lecture I'm going to set up split on also multi. So let's first have a look at split. So basically anything above this line here will be at the upper manual. This section here will be the lower Emmanuel Ondo. All the way to the left will be the pedals. Remember going back to the precept lecture? If we have selected by keyboard, set up C zero up to be here or control the presets, so just be aware of that. I'm going to turn this back to off and then go back to split. Anything below here will be the pedals, so I'm going to play a chord Now you can see now this is a low emanuel e a productive. You can see this is now the upper manual. Okay, now I'm just going to drag the pedals up and you can hear there we have the pedals. So right now, anything above sea free will be the other manual on. Then anything between B one and B two will be the low Emanuel. Then anything below be. One will be the pedals. So I can actually move the zones around if I wish. I noticed There it's what? Between the lower manual on the upper manual below here as well. You have a transpose option on this allows you to transpose the different manuals so we can transpose up or down two actives, so this could be useful for the pedals. So if you are using C zero to select the presets, you can use the pedal transposed to the notes, sound low earth and what you're actually playing, so you don't trigger the presets. There's also this learned, but in here, and this allows you to set where you want these different splits toe happen by playing notes on your keyboard. You can see that. So if I select the second spit now and press learn, you can see it jump up. And if I press this split between the pedals on the lower manual and then pressed, learn, you can see that move. So you do have to select one of these splits and then press learn on whatever note you press. It will jump to that so this could be useful for quickly dividing your keyboard. Okay? And then finally on the left. Here we have this button called Multi on this allows you to have physically different MIDI controllers for the upper lower and also the pedals. So right now you can see that Channel one goes to the upper manual. Channel two goes to the lower manual, and channel free goes to the pedals. So I've actually got free different midi cables in front of me right now. So I'm just going Teoh, change them around and choose different channels for each mini keyboard, depending on what made it keyboard you have can be easy to change the channel, or you may have to press shift or pulled down a few buttons or even a few different keys to change the channel. So right now I have this mini keyboard set up on Channel One. Eso is playing the upper second Midi keyboard, Channel two, which is playing the lower thin this Ferdman keyboard, which is set up on Channel Free, which is playing the pedals. Obviously, you can't play all free media cables same time, but if you do have any midi foot pedals, you could use that to play the pedals, however, of too many keyboard. You can use your right and left hand to play the upper and lower manuals that was using two different media cables with my left and right hand left hand playing the low manual on my right hand, playing off Emmanuel on the separate Midi keyboard. Okay, so that's the split section in the main window. In the next lecture, we're going to look at the rotor cabinet window. Thanks for watching, and I'll see you in the next one. 7. Rotor Cabinet Window: hi there, and welcome to this video. We're going to be looking at the rotor cabinet section in this vintage be free organ. So this wrote a common that emulates the Leslie Speaker, which is a rotating speaker. And if you go over to the main window as well, we can actually see the speaker rotate. So let's just go down to the rotation section here. Change is too fast and you can see speaker rotating on. Then change this over to break. You can see it, stop and then go to slow on. We can see the speaker rotating slowly. Let's just changes back to break on, head over to the rotor cabinet section. So, firstly, we need to make sure the Cabinet has turned on with the on off switch here. And if I play coordinator who won't be able to hear the speaker because it's not rotating, so that's just switch this too fast. Thank you to break and you can hit slow down. Let's just switch this too fast. Play a chord, gives that really classic organ sound and then switched to slow and you can hear the emulation off the speaker rotating slower. So we have three different sections in this rotor cabinet window. We have the mic process in section motor on break. And then, of course, we have the image of the speaker on the microphones over here on the right. Over here, you can choose the type of Cabinet. So by default is on the rial covenant, which actually uses impulse responses off a Cabinet. We also have free different microphones. Here we have a microphone for the drum on two microphones here for the horn so you can click on these microphones. We can choose different types. We can choose dynamic condenser or a stereo, and some of the base. We can click on this choose dynamic condenser or stereo. We're going to the mikes and a bit more detail later. Um, and we can also choose the mic position front Aurea. And if we have rear selected, we can actually see the horns rotating. So if I stop this over too fast, you can see that's rotating a lot faster on If I go over to break, you can see it break. So let's click on type. And then here we have a few different types, which actually emulate different models of Leslie speakers, and these will actually create a different sound. So would and Pro Line will emulate different lessons. Speakers and then single would actually emulate a single range motor. So the over ones were emulate two motors, and this will emulate a single motor. Let's change this too fast. I'm going to play cold now and now. Let's like wood. So compared to the real cabin that this will give us a bit more low frequency. It's actually based on the Leslie 1 to 2 model on them per line through. This has a bit less bottom end on. It's actually based on the Leslie 760 model on, then single, and this will give us a different tone as well and is based on the Leslie 8 to 5 model. Okay, going down. We have split. So this will take the drum and move it to the left, and it will take the horns, move it to the right, so this will give us a wide punning sound. It's been easier to hear if you have headphones on. Okay, then going down. We have some impulse responses. Wouldn't horns pro line the horn on spitting horse, so these will emulate the different enclosures with impulse responses. Okay, let's go back to the real Cabinet because this will actually give us a few more options to work with. That's just changed my position back to the front. So here we can choose a different Mike. Right now we have dynamic, which will give us a brighter sound on. And then we can choose condenser, which will give us a clearer sound. And we can also choose a stereo pair if we wish. Oh, just changes back to dynamic on Same of the drum. We can choose dynamic condenser lost area. It really gives us a few different options for Amro to cabinet. Okay, If we switched the mic position over to Rhea, you'll notice we have a deflector option available so we can actually remove the deflectors if you wish. So this will basically allow you to hear the horns go past the microphones. It's avarice, little effect, and it's something to explore as well. But we can only access this option at the rail off the speaker. Okay, let's now have a look at the mic process in section. So on the far right. We can choose the balance between the drum, so the base rotor or the horns, the trouble rotor. So if you go all the way to the right, you can hear we're rolling off some of the trouble. It gives us a basic atone who, if you've rolled all the way to the left, you can hear it rolls off some of the base, and we have much more trouble you tone way also have to stereo with controls Sounds. Remove this dull to the right. We get more of a stereo with made it to the left. Work at more than money sound. It's quite subtle, but you'll be able to hear this easier with headphones on way off again. Way really get that traditional organ sound with Cabinet on. So do you recommend turning the Cabinet on if you want more traditional organ sound? Okay, let's go down to the motor on the break section now. So the motor is the engine that drives this Leslie speaker, and here we have an acceleration dull on a max right doll. So the Acceleration doll is how long it takes the motor to reach its maximum speed. So if we go to break and then change is too fast. You be able to hear the acceleration way increased acceleration on Let's actually just change the mic position to rear so you can physically see the horns rotate. So let's changes to break that. I'm going to play a chord and then change the fast way. Have a number there right now. It took 2.9 seconds to reach its max speed. And if I increase this to say four seconds and then go to break, it will take four seconds for it to reach its maximum speed. So I'm gonna play a chord now on. Change this over too fast. Okay, then going across, we have a maximum rate. So if I just decrease this, you'll see the horn slow down. If I increase this, you see the hole and speed up. So this just allows us to really choose the speed off the haunts. Lower maximum, right? You can hear spinning. It's a lot slower physically. See, it's a lot slower as well. Increase this. You can see that's a lot quicker. However, if we make the maximum rate really slow, it's not really going to be that much different to the slow setting. So just be aware of that as well. Okay, Going across. We have the motor control sections, so this allows us to choose the speed for the base on the horn rotor. So right now it's on normal. So when it's our normal, if we select fast, it will go fast. If we sell like slow, it will go slow. And if we select break, they will break. We can also select in verse, so this means the base will rotate fast on, the horns will rotate slow on. This will also be reversed in slow mode. So if we change the rotation too slow, this will in verse again. So this means the base will rotate slow on the horn will rotate fast. Okay, The next motor control is a 910 So for switch it to this, the drum motor will actually stop. So this means that's drums or bass Writer will stop and we can still hear the horns or the travel rotor protect just going to decrease acceleration so we can hear the motor reach Max speed a bit faster. Okay, then going down. We have sink mode on in this mode the drum and the horn or rotate about the same speed. Okay, so these settings are quite subtle, but can really allow you to dive deep into your motor controls. Let's change is back to normal and then have a look at speed midi control. So this actually allows me to use my MIDI controller to actually control the rotation switch. So this rotation switch down here with a MIDI control. If you wish that we could assign this to one of these settings for example, the model whale want me just Ahmad. Well, it will adjust the speed, however, for now, going live on off. Okay, then going down. We have this break section. Okay, first for we have the dreidel. But let's have a look at this switch between dry and rotor first, so the default is rotor. However, if it switch this to dry and now with this dial, we can increase or decrease the dry level by 10 db However this is switched the rotor. This doll won't make any difference. Okay, So if I go back to dry mode and then I'm going to turn on the rotor again and then go back to break, to be able to hear a one second delay and then the dry Simon kick it. Let's make this a bit more obvious by turning up the dry sand, then go on fast and then break and to be able to hear that switch, and it will be allowed to sound this time. So when it's in break mode after a one second delay, that would give us the dry organ sound. So the sound of the organ without their Leslie speaker it's the same thing on slow mode. Ah, be a one second delay and then swap to the dry sound. However, if I spot this to rotor and then turn in the rotation and go to break, it will gradually break rather than suddenly swap. So we will get a more gradual effect when it stops over to break. Okay, we just have two more dials in this rotor cabinet section that is drum position on horn position. So this allows us to change the starting position off the horns on the drum. In this graph display here, we can't see what happens when we change the drum position. However, remove the home position can see it move now, so depending on the position, it will actually sound different on the same of the drum. The position of the horn and drum slightly affect the sound Like a sub. You can choose different microphones. Dynamic condenser in stereo so dynamic will give us slightly brighter sound. Let's turn the rotation back on. Condenser would give us more clear sound and stereo will actually give us stereo pattern. You can do the same with the drum, so just gives us lots of variation just going to change us back to dynamic. However, we swap it to a different cabinet type. You notice we can't actually choose different microphones. However, the real Cabinet allows us to choose Dynamic condenser or Sterritt Mike. Okay, so that is the rotor covenants section in this vintage be free instrument. So this gives us a lot more options, really, using this Leslie Speaker Emulation allows us to get that classic organ sound, so thanks for watching. And I'll see in the next lecture where we're going to be looking at the options window 8. Options Window: I Then welcome to this video. What we going to be looking at the options tab? So we have looked at some of these options in the previous video. However, I'm going to go over the ones we haven't looked at in this video. So we did previously have a quick look at the scan Librato On the more section here, Let's now have a look at the ever controls. So in the top left here we have the master controls on the 1st 1 Here is the tune dial and this allows us to tune the organ Opal down 50 cents Then we also have a master volume now and then going across We have an expression doll. So this is used if you have any expression pedals connected to your midi keyboard So this will set the sensitivity for these pedals. I don't currently have any expression pedal set up. If you do, you can change the sensitivity off this expression pedal here of this expression doll. Okay, going along. We have some clip controls. So on the original Hammond B three organ, that will actually be some click sounds on this vintage. Be free organ emulates thes click sounds. So if you want to make your organs, I'm very authentic. You can actually leave some of these click sounds on to get a more authentic sounding organ . Okay, so here we have the key on dial. So if I tennis all the way to the left, you won't hear any flick sounds. If I increase this all the way to the right, you will be able to hear the click on sand, say McKee off. We can also adjust the click amount for the key off dial on the pedal dial so we can even have some authentic organ sound and click on the pedals if we wish. Then we have this for lost to dial on the right, and this is how much the velocity will affect the clicks. So at the moment, as we have the velocity all the way up, if I play very gently, you won't be able to hit a click sign. But if I play hard, you will be able to hear the click sound. But if it turned us all the way down and now if I play very gently, you can hit a click sound. And if I play hard. You can still hit a click sound at the same level Because how hard I play or the velocity is not affecting the click level. Okay, I'm gonna leave this all the way up. And now let's go down to the percussion section. Okay? Over here we have the mode. Polly means if you play a chord, you can hear that why? I play the other notes. There was percussion added to each of these notes. But if you stop this to money when you're playing a chord or you're holding a note down, there will not be percussion added to the notes on top, only the original court. So I just demonstrate that again with money. If I play a chord and play a few notes, the original court will have percussion. But the notes after this, whilst the call is being held, will not have any percussion sound. But if I changes to Polly, all of the notes will have a percussion sound. Okay, going across. We have percussion on presets, and this actually goes back to the presets in the main window. So if you go to Maine and then go to presets, remember, we have these different presets here is talking about this note here that be so going back to options. This means the preset will only be on the beaky. So if you want to change to another preset or morph to another preset, then the percussion sound would just be on the Beaky. However, if you want the percussion sound on all of the presets and switch this to all okay, going across, we have percussion time, and this is for the decay of percussion. So if we go back over to the main one day under the global percussion settings here, you can choose slow or fast time on these dolls in the option window offer the fast and slow dolls under the global percussion. Here in the main window you notice as well. If we drag a fast dial forward, that slowdown will follow. And if we drag the slow dial back, the faster I will follow, okay, and then going across. We have the percussion volume settings for low and high, so going back to the main window, remember, we have these global percussion settings, and low and high refers to soft on normal. So in self notify play court about options and then increase the volume for low. You can hear the percussion sound as a lot louder now if I decreases, uh, you can hear the percussion sound is a lot quieter. Forget about two Main, and I switch this to normal. This will refer to high now, and you hear the percussion sound is a lot louder. That's just decrease this okay, going across. We have upper level, so this percussion only affects the upper manual. On this upper level, dial allows us to balance the upper manual with a low manual on the pedals. So if I play a chord now decrease. This upper level is going to decrease up Emanuel. However, we can still hear the percussion sound so we can get a balance between the percussion sound on the offer manual and then going across. We have the velocity dial on. This is how much velocity applies to the percussion effects. So at the moment, if I play softly or if I play hard, percussion level is the same. However, if I increases for lost a doll and I play softly and they play hard, you could hear due to the velocity the percussion sound is a lot louder when I play harder . So this is me playing a court very hard. If I play the court very soft, you can't hear the percussion sound. However, if I drive this all the way back now, play called softly. The percussion effect is the same level as if I play, of course, very hard. Okay, then going down here. We've had a look at this before. This is a scan of a brother chorus on this. Links to the IRA brought a course in the main window. Let's just turn this on for the upper manual. And if we choose librato the debt foreign actually do anything, all right on because death will make a difference. Came just gonna turn off the effect full of manual about two options. Then we have the more control here. We did look at this before in the video where we looked at the presets in the main window. So this basically allows us to make a few adjustments about how we more free, different presets. So by default, it's on linear. This will give us a face smooth movement between the presets. So if we go back to Maine and then click on presets in the bottom, right arm off between the pre sexual notice will be very smooth, linear between the presets. However, if I go back to options and I change this to step is going to step or switch between the different presets. So if I go back to Maine on presets, and now if I'm or is going to jump or step between these different presets. So if you want to smoothly more between the presets, I recommend having this on linear. You can also adjust the more setting with our midi keyboard. By selecting one of these, for example, he could choose mod wheel to move between the different presets again. You can also learn the controller up here as well. Okay, let me just quickly mention range. So the moment it's on G. So if I go back to the main window and then slap preset, it's only going to morph to this G preset. So you see here is only going to go to this shape. Oh, this is going to finish here. However, if we change it to see sharp, it's going to more fruit. All of these all the way up to the C sharp. So let's go back to options change this to see shop. And now let me go about two main presets. You'll see it more through all of these different shapes all the way to this one Here, the sea shop, drag it all the way back and then more way you can see there by looking at the shape finishes on C shop. So this really allows you to set how much of the range you wish. Remember, if this is on off, it's not going to morph. So depending on which key you select, it will allow you to more through these different presets. Okay, and then finally, we have edit preset keys. Right now it's on current, which means if you go back to the main window, click on presets. It means we can edit any of the presets in real time. So if I play called now, you can hear I'm editing this preset. If I choose that a sharp preset and added this, uh, even him at sting, that in real time, if I choose him also editing that in real time. So in the options, if we have a shop and be only then go back to the main window presets and try and edit this preset on a You noticed the sun will change. But if I play a shop will be the same. Will change. I just pressed Kiki precept that on the same weren't changed as well, so I normally reduces on current. However, if you don't want to change all of the presets in real time, you could leave this on a shop and be only Okay, so that's the options window. In the next lecture, we're going to look at the effects window. 9. Effects Window: are there. Welcome to this video. And now we're going to look at the effects window. First of all, we have this master switch here where we can simply turn the effects on a rough going across to be 1/2 a pedal switch. So this is for the bass pedal. You may wish to bypass the effects for the bass pedal, for example. You may not wish toe have reverb on the base metal, so you can, if you wish, bypassed the effects for the bass pedal. I'm not actually playing the pedals at the moment, so we'll leave the effects on. But if you are playing the pedals, you may wish to bypass these effects. Okay, next is on off. Switch for the reverb, and here we can have the river pre or post. So post will be after the rotor effect on pre will be before the rotor effect. And of course, here we have the level for the reverb. That river is added after the rotor effect, and if I switch it to pre, the river will be added before the right effect way. And then if I click on type, we have a drop down box that allows us to choose different types of reverb. For example, I could choose this one here large. That would give me a larger just going to decrease the level. For now, let's choose big and you can hear there we have a pretty big river. But for now, I'm just going to choose small. Uh huh. Okay, Going down. We have e que while are on distortion. We contend e que on enough And it's a simple free band. You queue So we have low, mid and high. We also have an output level for the EQ. You so for example, we could take out some of the base or increase the booth. Of course we have this. I put level as well. Okay, Going across. We have the wildlife effect. We can turn the while we're effect on the rough. With the on or off switch on, we can adjust the range on the bite. Oh, you weigh Bite is gonna be a similar effect to residents Way Have different types of wild classic Try. No way. Ah, well, we can also assign a midi controller to sweep through the wildlife so you can sweet for this while while off one of the dolls on your midi keyboard or maybe even the model you can also press, learned to love this and then going across. We have distortion on. If we turned the sun and go over to the main controls and then go to controls. We have this global distortion setting in the main window way just allows us to drive to go to effects. We have a few more options for the distortion. We have the tone here as well on the drive as well. Way do have a few more types of distortion, which can be interesting to play around with. Also, if the drivers on zero, we won't hear any distortion. One more thing to mention is we can actually change the signal flow so I could drive the distortion before the while. Well, I have maybe the wild wild before the eq you, so it doesn't necessarily have to be in the water it was before. So the signal now will go into the while while there into the eu que then into the distortion. Okay, so that's a quick look at the effects window inside this vintage. Be free organ. Thanks. Watch In the next lecture, you look at the expert window 10. Expert Window - Essentials: Hi there. Welcome to this lecture where I'm going to go over some of the essentials off the expert window for this vintage be free organ. So in this video, don't go over all of the settings in this expert window. I just go over the essential ones. If you do want to further tweak your settings in the vintage, be free organ. So we have four different columns. Pitch, sustain condition on organ model. Let's go over to pitch, bend up and notice That's on break. That means if I bend the pitch all the way up with my pitch band, it's actually going to break the organ and create kind of a tape stop effect. So I was just holding down the pitchman there to create that break effect pitch. Bend up, however, were only letters go up 12 semi tones. However, pitch bend down can give us quite interesting effect. Okay, I'm going along. We can't adjust the sustained for the upper manual low manual and pedals. Okay, so I'm just going to increase the sustain. I'm just going to quickly stab accord and you'll be able to hear the sustain if I increase it even more I'm gonna play the court at the same speed. Oh, you can hear the sustained Continue. So this comm useful If you want to add some sustain Okay, Growing across to condition, we can add some troll balich because this is based on the Hammond B three organ to make its authentic as possible that you can actually add some draw bar leak. It's That means the drawer bars were league into each other. If you have this dial up, so if you do want unauthentic sound, you can always add some for about a leakage. You have a few more controls here as well, if you wish to explore. However, like I said, I'm just going to show you the essentials off this expert window in the vintage. Be free organ, okay, and then going along toe organ model. The top one is maximum wheels. So if you're having any issues with CPU, he can decrease this. You will get more authentic sound, the more wheels that you have. So if I play a chord now, that's with the maximum wheels on. If I decrease it and here it's not going to sound us full. That will save on CPU. If you are having any issues, okay, there's other stuff as well, such as balanced based filter and going across. There is a few more settings, but they're just the essentials. And if you want, explore this organ even further. Feel free to test out some of these of her settings as well. But hopefully by now you should understand how this vintage be free organ works. So I hope you find these videos useful and I'll see you in the next one. 11. Thanks for Watching and Class Project: Okay, We're at the end of this class. Hope Now you're a lot more confident in using this vintage. Be free organ. So you class project is actually to create your own preset sound and then to set up your many devices so you could even use multiple keyboards. Or you can split your upper lower pedals over one midi keyboard of them, want you to take a screenshot of this main window here and then post it as a class project so I can see what you've done. So thank you again for watching this class and I'll talk to you soon.
