Mechanical Perfection
B-3 V emulates every step of this machine's complex mechanical process for a virtual instrument that doesn't just sound like the real thing - it behaves like it too.

The B-3 V's namesake was electromechanical, combining spinning tonewheels with pickups to produce flute-like tones in octaves and harmonics for each note. These could be variably mixed via a set of 9 drawbars per manual for a variety of additive timbres, from soft and airy to pronounced and resonant.

But the B3 had a number of distinguished features up its sleeve. The percussion feature, which added a quickly-decaying sound at the second or third harmonic, gave each key press an edgy attack, perfect for solos and rhythmic playing. The read more unique modulation feature offered three different depths of vibrato or intensities of chorus.
