Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Machine
With 9 presets that were finely tuned to emulate the most legendary organs from the ‘60s and beyond, the B9 Organ Machine will transform your guitar or keyboard. Control the instrument’s signature percussive click and sweet modulation. Blend your dry signal to create lush layers. Enough tonewheel and combo organ inspiration to light your fire and cook up some green onions!
Place modulation delay and reverb effects after the B9. The unit will not perform well if placed in the effects loop of a guitar amp.
If a guitars pickup has a weak output, performance can be improved by putting a clean boost or a compressor in front of the B9.
It is not advised to place a distortion or overdrive in front of the B9. This will muddy up the input signal and cause the tracking to be unstable. If overdrive or distortion is desired it’s best to place it after the B9.
A compressor in front or after the B9 can help smooth this out. This helps for a guitar player who’s playing is less than desirable in the dynamics department.
The unit can be used with a bass guitar BUT the range the bass player can play will be limited.
The unit tracks best above the C note, third fret on the A string. Below that performance is compromised and not recommended.
Above that the organ sound will not be heard.
The B9 tracks great and will follow what ever you play, but it is not a talent booster. Sloppy guitar playing will sound like a sloppy organ player.
The B9 will bend notes just a regular guitar does. Organs do not bend, so for a more authentic organ sound limit bending.Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Machine Features:
