The Legend Live

All the awesomeness of the mighty KeyB Legend, but in a no compromise lightweight portable. You get the Sound, you get the Feel, you get an amazingly compact set of keys perfect for those hard to get to Soho gigs.

KeyB Legend & Legend Live presented by Pat Bianchi

Full Compliment of Drawbars

If you have been playing a classic tonewheel organ, then you will feel at home with the KeyB Duo. The drawbars look and feel vintage with their original looking end caps and metal bars. 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.

Waterfall Keyboards

Along with the best sound and being easy to play, the KeyB Duo 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 KeyB pedals are heavy-duty and are same radius as the classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel right.

SOUND GENERATION

The new KeyB Legend organ by Viscount, designed in cooperation with NEWTONE makes use of innovative TMT (Tonewheel  Modeling Technology). This is no mere sampled Hammond Organ but a computer model thats is able to perfectly clone a classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that simply cannot be obtained by sampling. The Legend reproduces’ unlike the lesser models around capture the characteristics of a tonewheel organ including cross talk, tonewheel flutter, electric hum and octave tapers. This same technology allows KeyB to create an accurate Rotary Speaker model – this emulation is so good only a handfull of our users still bother with a rotary speaker – they simply DI into the desk or PA.
