The original Hammond Organ was Designed and built by the ex-watchmaker Laurens Hammond in April 1935. Hammond set up his 'Hammond Organ Company' in Evanston, Illinois to produce electronic organs for the 'leisure market' and in doing so created one of the most popular and enduring electronic instruments ever built. Hammonds machine was designed using technology that relates directly to Cahill's 'Telharmonium' of 1900, but, on a much smaller scale. The Hammond organ generated sounds in the same way as the Telaharmonium, the tone weel-The tone generator assembly consisted of an AC synchronous motor connected to a geartrain which drove a series of tone wheels, each of which rotated adjacent to a magnet and coil assembly. The number of bumps on each wheel in combination with the rotational speed determined the pitch produced by a particular tone wheel assembly. The pitches approximate even-tempered tuning. The Hammond had a unique drawbar system of additive timbre synthesis (again a development of the Telharmonium) and stable intonation - a perennial problem with electronic instruments of the time. A note on the organ consisted of the fundamental and a number of harmonics, or multiples of that frequency. In the Hammond organ, the fundamental and up to eight harmonics were available and were controlled by means of drawbars and preset keys or buttons. A Hammond console organ included two 61-key manuals; the lower, or Great, and upper, or Swell, and a pedal board consisting of 25 keys. The concert models had a 32-key pedalboard. Hammond also patented an electromechanical reverb device using the helical tortion of a coiled spring, widely copied in later electronic instruments. As well as being a succesful home entertainment instrument, The Hammond Organ became popular with Jazz, Blues and Rock musicians up until the late 1960's and was also used by 'serious' musicians such as Karheinz Stockhausen in "Mikrophonie II" MASTER HAMMOND B3  is a Virtual Hammond VST plug-in with a rich and authentic sound based on the legendary B3. The result is a warm and powerful sound over the entire range of the keyboard. The MHB3 is capable of all the variations one expects from this type of organ, and is suitable for any flavor of music, be it Rock, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, etc. (What's new in v2.21) Use this Syntheway VST plugin with your favourite MIDI Sequencer host like: FL Studio, Ableton Live, Cakewalk SONAR X1, Steinberg Cubase, Nuendo, PreSounus Studio One, REAPER, Mixcraft, MAGIX Samplitude, Sequoia, Energy XT, ACID Pro, Orion, VSTHost, SAVIHost, n-Track Studio, Cantabile, Adobe Audition Features B3 Mode Selector: B3 Standard Fast Bright Slow Bright Fast Dark Slow Dark Full Bright 4 B3 Blues types Jazz B3 (Slow) B3 High Slow/Fast B3 Low Slow  Slow Overdrive (Distortion) Authentic sound based on an intelligent VSTi engine and Sample Playback, which provides virtually unlimited dynamic expression for your performances.  Modeled on mastered samples (normalized and noise-reduced).

The Hammond organ, developed by Laurens Hammond and introduced in 1935, was the first commercially successful electric instrument. It was widely used in homes. It was also widely used in jazz, rock, blues, gospel and popular music performance.  Perhaps the success of the Hammond B3 would not be without the trusty Leslie Speaker Cabinet. Invented by Don Leslie, create a speaker cabinet that spins, or spins the speakers to provide a very non directional sound that when coupled with the B3, sounds very much like a church organ, without all of the messy tubing.
