Better synthesis and new tube amplification emulation 18/11/05
Give your new organ a taste..
NI's B4 organ emulation set a marker for others in the plug-in market (see our review) to aspire to. Well now it turns out that they are the ones to raise the bar once again.
The new B4 II offers even more authenticity and flexibility due to further significant advances in sound synthesis and
amplifier emulation technology, and brings a wide range of additions and improvements that make it the versatile and easy-to-use in the studio and on stage.
There's a brand-new tube amp and 12 new speaker cabinets, new new spring and studio reverb units.
From the drawbars, the vibrato and chorus to the tube distortion and rotary speakers, the B4 II delivers the sound of the original in impressive detail. The cross-talk between the tonewheels is adjustable and 11 additional tonewheel sets are also included: 'Cosmetically age' the B4 II or transform it into a Farfisa, a Vox Continental or an Indian Harmonium.
B4 II is available individually or as a bundle with the B4D drawbar controller.
In combination with the B4D drawbar controller the B4 II offers maximum playability and smoothest operation on stage, at home, or in the studio.
Power is nothing without control: The B4D controller
B4 II is available for a suggested retail price of $229 / 199 Euro from
authorized dealers and in the NI Online Shop. An update for existing B4
owners is available for $ 99 / 79 Euro.
