Posted By: Ajax69 Alternatives to Roland VK-8M? - 09/16/20 08:55 AM
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!

There are other options if you don't need the actual physical drawbars included.

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.
