Any suggestions what to buy for good Hammond organ sounds in my keyboard in 2020? And I must say the VK-8M makes the Ferrofish look really "plastic". Would love to have something more stylish.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Thank's. Looks good. But yes - I don't necessarily need drawbars.

The first two companies I linked to also make units without drawbars (if you have a keyboard or other controller device has sliders/knobs that send MIDI CC, you can use those to adjust drawbar settings if you want). You can also use an iPad running Hammond B-3X from IK Multimedia, or Galileo Organ 2 from Yonac which also runs on iPhone/iPod Touch. Or there are numerous options if you want to connect a PC/Mac laptop.

Thank's anotherscot. I'll look through those options. I believe I saw Kawai James recommend iPhone/Galileo Organ. And this is for a Kawai, so might go that way.
