Better sound than ever B4!
This attractive bundle includes the B4 II Virtual Organ and the B4D Virtual Controller. In combination with the B4D drawbar controller, the B4 II offers maximum playability and smooth operation on stage, at home, or in the studio.
The B4 II has been substantially enhanced from the most popular and authentic software emulation--the B4--with an even more authentic sound and many new functions. You will be addicted to its sounds right from the start. From silky soft to relentlessly rocking, the new tube amp and the 12 new speaker cabinets open completely new sonic dimensions. Choose one of the 120 outstanding organ sounds and start playing straight away.
The B4 software organ broke new ground when it was released in 2000 and was an instant success. It reproduces the sound of the legendary B3 and its rotary speaker cabinet with unmatched accuracy. Its expressiveness and immediate playability continues to amaze even the most experienced organ players. The B4 II raises the bar considerably, generating a much wider sonic range and a far richer, even more authentic sound.
Through The Tube
The latest version of this award-winning virtual organ sees the addition of many extra components. A tube amplifier and a selection of classic speaker cabinets offer you greater freedom of expression. Spring and studio reverb modules lend the sound more depth and atmosphere. From silky soft to relentlessly rockin', the sound is stunningly precise and more versatile than ever before.
Attention To Detail
From the drawbars, the vibrato and chorus to the tube distortion and rotary speakers, the B4 II delivers the sound of the original in incredible detail. The crosstalk between the tonewheels is adjustable and 11 additional tonewheel sets are also included so you can "age" the B4 II or transform it into a Farfisa, a Vox Continental, or an Indian harmonium.
A Joy To Play
The B4 II is instantly playable. Its convenient Preset Manager coupled with a large selection of presets offer a wide range of styles. The new bass pedal legato and string bass features make using the foot pedals easy: a walking bass has never been simpler. The B4 II is a rounded, enthralling, and easy-to-use software organ that instantly delights.
Let The Tonewheel Turn
The included tonewheel sets vastly expand the B4 II's sonic potential. Adjust the age of your B4 II: From factory-fresh to old and worn after years onstage--the choice is yours. Or turn the B4 II into a completely different organ altogether: the Farfisa, Vox Continental, and Indian harmonium are all included.
Hands-on software control
With the B4D drawbar controller Native Instruments now offers a perfect hardware controller for the B4 and B4 II, allowing musicians to control the sound with an authentic drawbar feel, just like the original. The sturdy B4D drawbar controller offers 9 mechanical drawbars, 22 buttons, and 2 knobs for intuitive control over the most important B4 sound parameters. The controller's 9 drawbars can access any of the 3 B4 drawbar groups. With the buttons and knobs you can control the rotary speaker, vibrato/chorus, percussion, recall presets on the fly, and change the volume and overdrive. Playing the B4 or B4 II is more dynamic and authentic than ever before.
The B4D controller's sturdy housing is made of high-quality metal and wood. The handy drawbars, precise buttons, and stable knobs provide a direct and intuitive playing feel for controlling the B4's most important parameters: sound character, presets, rotator, percussion, vibrato/chorus, volume, and overdrive.
Each of the B4's drawbar groups can be accessed fast using the switches for Upper, Lower, and Bass. LED lights indicate the current position of the buttons, letting you switch quickly between the different groups when playing live.
The B4D is connected to the computer via MIDI. When you alter settings on the B4D or directly in the software, the changes are immediately communicated between the program and controller via MIDI. This guarantees a perfect match between hardware and software. On the back of the B4D you'll find MIDI in and out, plus additional connections for a sustain pedal, 2 footswitches, and other B4D units.
In order to link inputs and outputs and control all the drawbars simultaneously, it is possible to connect multiple B4D controllers.
