Value For Money : Excellent
For me the highlight of scne par excellence, in this budget and as qu'orgue Modl Obviously.
Excellent touch.

UTILIZATION

Good config, once you Intgr available to guide me parat commandes.La simple and well done.
The controls are effective and the choice of many features student.
The drawbars rpondent prcisment, you can choose diffrent modlisations amps, rverb, overdrive, vibrato, chorus.
Some gadgets (unnecessary on this type of instrument): D-Beam and sound supplmentaires.
Possibility of a second midi keyboard and a pdalier.
Taking Leslie ...

SOUNDS

It's THE ...
Regardless of what you ask it rpond Submitted: funky riffs, jazzy groove sound, reggae, hard rock sounds big, everything is great.
For the scne rverbs intgres more than adequate in the studio if you have the stuff to replace them they can by-pass. The VK8 Submitted always a mix.
It is a new mmorise rglage very easy.
For purists, the game on drawbar is terrible. We are flying a "real" organ. And rglage harmonics is daunting.
The overdrive is perfectly fulfills rle.
The accumulation of Leslie (adjustable) is one of the best I think this type of instrument.
Although sr, connect it to a real Leslie and is the bath ... But hey, it's bigger in the break.

OVERALL OPINION

What motivated the rdaction my opinion, this is what I read about the Hammond XK1, so-called super mga better. L I say NO!
The keyboard is super XK1 plastoc and sound can not hold a candle to what you get a VK8.
I tried everything: XK1, XK3, CX3 ... The VK8 is by far the most versatile and best value qualitprix.Franchement, while this is BCAN quality. XK1 for me is much worse (but cheaper). The XK3 sounds fuller, may be closer to the original sounds (although ...) but it is more expensive. The Korg CX3 dmnage, perfect for rock, but more expensive and can be less versatile.
In my set or studio, the VK8 will be replaced by a VK88, version two keyboards.
Big VK8 strengths: its keyboard perfect, the diversity and quality of sound in all styles.
I'm a fan of this objective BCAN, except for me crack a VK88 one of these days ...
