Clavia Nord Electro 3 73

Digital Piano from Clavia belonging to the Nord Electro 3 series.

American transistor organ enthusiast Barry Carson has created a great set of presets for the Farfisa and Vox-organs in the Nord Electro 3, Nord Stage 2 and Nord C2, recreating many of the legendary organ sounds known from the popular music of the 60's.

History and Background
In talking to other Nord users, it seemed that the most underused features of the Nord Combo Organs, Stages, and Electro 3's might be the models of two transistor organs of the 1960's, the Vox Super Continental and the Farfisa Combo Compact Duo. That’s why Barry Carson thought it would be fun to revisit these instruments.

 

Farfisa

There were basically 4 models of the Farfisa Compact series: the 4 octave Mini Compact, the 5 octave Combo Compact (which was the original Farfisa organ), the Combo Compact Deluxe (with some extra features and voices), and the two-manual Compact Duo. The Nord models the Compact Duo, but it can create the sounds of all four of these organs. These four types of Farfisa Compacts and the two types of Vox Continentals mean that using the Nord transistor organ models  gives the player the sounds of 6 different combo organs to choose from.

 

VOX

The Vox Continental was a 1960's combo organ. Its unusual reverse colored keyboard, curving chrome stand, and orange and gray finish were seen on televisions. There were two versions of the Vox, the original four octave Continental and the two-manual Super Continental. Both of these can be played on the Nord Vox model. You can get these sounds because the Super Continental's lower manual actually has the drawbars and sound of the original single manual Continental (albeit shifted up one octave) while the upper manual has an extra drawbar and has a slightly different sound, according to the creator.
