Easy to play
When you sit down at Legend Classic, all you have to do is turn it on and play. Everything you need, everything you're familiar with on a classic tonewheel organ is right where it belongs, with no confusing menus or LCD screens full of features you won't use.
Full set of drawbars
If you've spent time playing a classic tonewheel organ, you'll feel right at home with Legend Classic. It has two full sets of nine drawbars for the upper keyboard, two full sets of nine drawbars for the lower keyboard and two pedal drawbars.
Located right where they belong are the rocker tabs to control the 2nd and 3rd harmonic percussion. Soft and normal percussion volume, fast and slow percussion attack.
Upper/lower realtime controls
Legend upper manual realtime controls include volume, reverb, drive, key click, fine tuning, crosstalk, tone controls, pedal sustain, percussion decay and percussion volume. Legend lower manual realtime controls include reverb (post/pre, hall/spring), drive (classic/rock), tonewheel model ('30/'50/'70), transpose, rotary (direct, classic/rock), hold (int/ext) and pedals (direct, to lower).
Volume (soft/normal), vibrato and chorus
You can use vibrato/chorus independently for the upper and lower manuals or together. Use the familiar rotary control to select all three vibrato and chorus settings.
Along with the best sound and being easy to play, Legend Classic has two heavy-duty 61-note keyboards with the feel of an organ, not a synthesizer or cheap portable keyboard. If you play pedals, then you can purchase the optional 25 full-size console pedals. The Legend pedals are heavy-duty with the same radius as classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel just right.
Two sets of drawbar presets realtime controls
Two 'black octaves,' one for each manual, are available on Legend Classic. You can change drawbar settings in real time, just like on the original tonewheel organs.
