This project is one of the components of a virtual music studio.
Download the program:
To run this program, you must have Java JRE installed. More in the article How to run a Java application.
Virtual keyboard for NetSound
MID-file player via NetSound
MID-editor with playback via NetSound
Interactive musical system
The control of the program will be apparent from the window and controls. The organ inputs are MIDI commands from the piano keyboard connected to the PC via MIDI, or MIDI commands from NetSound. MIDI channel 1 is for the first manual (bottom on the original Hammond organ). MIDI channel 2 is for the second manual (top on the original Hammond organ). MIDI channel 3 is for pedal keyboard (only 25 bottom tones). The "Leslie" effect is accelerated or decelerated by either a sustain pedal or a pitch-bend controller.
About the project
This is a simulator of real Hammond B3 organ. The project originated in the attempt to simulate gears in the Hammond organ, which are the core of this electric organ. It has become a usable virtual music instrument that can be played in real time.
Hammond organ simulator simulates the following things:
The program works with MIDI and with NetSound. It also supports ASIO audio devices (smaller sound latency).
- sound sample
- sound sample
In the case of a Windows operating system whose sound driver produces a latency between the (MIDI) command and sound, this program also supports ASIO audio devices that do not have this audible delay (are so-called "low-latency").
This requires a special driver installed (e.g. ASIO4ALL).
ASIO enables to play with a small delay between the (MIDI) command and the sound being heard.
