I have the Native Instruments software that mimics a Hammond B3, Yamaha DX7, and Pro-53 analog synth that I use with Cakewalk Sonar. They are pretty darn impressive to me. I think they are a great economical way to go. Plus I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be great to use live too.Originally posted by Gerry
?How do software synths sound in general?
I saw a keyboard player with a vintage rhodes/B3 and laptop setup play only the laptop once.Originally posted by MichaelK
I have NI B4, the Hammond emulator. It's better than any hardware synth at emulating a B3 IMO.
I know people who use software synths with a Powerbook rig live but it makes me nervous. I've never done it.
