Nord Stage 3 - hammond B3 Sound

Postby Jo Osantos1 » 12 Oct 2017, 20:53

Am i the only one, that can not get the Hammond B3 of the Nord Stage 3 sounding good?

I had an Electro 4D, and the Hammond was really good! Now on the Stage, i cant get the same sound :S Help?

C2D, ne4, stage 3, it is hard to make this sounding like a hammond, very hard, but it is possible to have a good sound.

I am experiencing the same thing. The chorus/vibrato settings are wrong as well!

I agree, the chorus sounds awful and the Leslie needs to be tweaked. I thought it was only me and based my purchase decision on many on here and other musicians I know who rave about the Stage 2.

What gives?

yes, the chorus, not good.
Waiting months for Clavia to release the nsmp converter, i use a leakage from a real B3 in layer in kontakt with the ns3, with the volume pedal. After i ll made a leakage.nsmp.
It sounds great, and i can tweak the eq for the body of the hammond sound. But i haven't find my best souding yet. I think nord hammond sound is really good, compared to a mojo, it sounds pure, but the leslie effect is so better in the mojo or others, the breath of the leslie, the 3d effect. It sounds too thick, too hifi in our nord. Just my point of view.
With work and a neo vent, it would be great, really.

... and the percus volume is too much low in soft position, we canno't change this. Chorus not really good. I got to be honest, but i knew that before buying the ns3, which is top keys.

Yes, I spent over an hour last night trying to get the B3 to Sound at least as good as my former Stage 2EX. I filed a complaint with Nord about the chorus/vibrato. Nothing yet. Please everyone reading this fill a support sheet on this. I thought is was just me thinking that it was in my head about the B3 not sounding good. I was expecting an improvement, not a decrement!!

If I could go back to the way it sounded on the Stage 2EX I could live with it!
