Easy to Play
When you sit down at the Legend Live, all you have to do is turn it on and play. Everything you need and are familiar with, on a classic tonewheel organ, is there right where it belongs. No confusing menus or LCD screens full of features that you most likely don't or won't use. After all, it's an organ.
Full set of Drawbars
If you have been playing a classic tonewheel organ, then you will feel at home with the Legend Live. It has two full sets of 9 drawbars for the upper keyboard, two full sets of 9 drawbars for the lower keyboard and 2 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.
Vibrato and Chorus
Easy control of Vibrato and Chorus.
Upper / Lower Realtime Controls
Legend Upper Manual Realtime Controls include: Volume; Reverb; Drive; Keyclick; Fine Tuning; Crosstalk; Tone Controls; Pedals Sustain; Percussion (Decay, 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); 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, the Legend Live 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-sized console pedals. The Legend Live pedals are heavy-duty and are same radius as the classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel right.
The new VISCOUNT by KeyB Legend Live organ, designed in cooperation with NEWTONE, uses the innovative TMT (Tonewheel Modeling Technology) able to perfectly clone the classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that can't be obtained by traditional sampling. Legend reproduces also important characteristics of a tonewheel organ including cross talk, tonewheels flutter, electric hum and octave tapers. Moreover there is also an accurate Rotary Simulation. Maybe you don't have one or it's not convenient to take a rotary speaker with you. Don't worry! The new Legend Simulation is incredibly realistic. It's so good you'll have to look twice to see where the rotors are, this is because of the TMT engine.
