Native Instruments B4 IIPublished on 11/16/09 at 22:58
I run a Macbook with Logic 9 and Ableton 7.  There is no compatibility issues that I am aware of.
I have never referenced the manual, in fact, I am not sure it came with one. 
Although, if you are familiar with a real tube organ, you should get the hang of this right away.  If not, look it up.
In the sense that this is a reproduction visually as well as aurally of a B3, then yes it is setup simply. 
Yes, all the typical functions are easily accessible via the tab bar in the upper part of the window.  Select either Manual, Organ, Expert or Preset and you will be able to find everything you need.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it in both programs mentioned earlier as well as a standalone unit from time to time.  So far it has worked very well.  No drop outs, no crashes.  I really enjoy this plugin, but the plugin I find myself drawn to when I need a B3 is GSi's VB3.   I am giving this an 8 out of 10 because the VB3 is 2 units better.
I have been using this plugin for about a year.


OVERALL OPINION

What I like about this plugin is the great presets and the excellent attention to detail when dealing with options on an organ. 
What I don't like is what I don't like about a lot of plugins out there.  Its so damn hard to read/use live because its small and therefore hard to read.  The real problem is you cannot resize it.  Hitting fullscreen leaves the plugin the same size and puts a black background blocking everything else out.  Kinda dumb.
I got this in the big package deal I think I paid about $100 or $150 for this.  Thats not too bad, but in the end, I wish I had just bought the GSi VB3.  Sound quality is very good, 2nd only to the VB3.  I have organ patches in just about every sound machine I own as well as software like Logic, Ableton, Reason, and a few others have a ton too.    This ranks number out of all those guys.
In the end, no I would not make the same choice again.  I would have just bought the GSi VB3

This software installed without any problems. I didn't have any compatibility issues. It was very easy to get set up. The only thing that was a little confusing was the registration. Native Instruments has a number you can call for help though, and they were very helpful with helping me with the registration keys. Once you get it installed, it's very easy to use at first. Then you realize how huge this program is, and how many options there are. It gets confusing from there! The manual is actually not that great, but it gives you a good starting point to check out all the features.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have a dell computer with windows with an intel processor, and 2GB of ram. The software works very well with my computer. I use it in Cubase mostly. It doesn't ever crash the computer so it is very stable. It doesn't use a ton of memory so you can use it worry free on your recording.

OVERALL OPINION

I have had this for about a year. My band and I used this in a studio when we were recording our album. We wanted to put an organ on a song, but the studio didn't have one. When we mentioned we wished we could do that, they brought up this software. I was really blown away with how good it sounded! It's like having a box full of a ton of different real organs. You can really customize the sound too, even with different kinds of tremolo and distortion. Unfortunately when you play it with a MIDI controller a lot of the time it can sound a little fake, but it you're good with MIDI then you can make a performance seem totally convincing. I have heard other organ emulator software and this one by far takes the cake. I was so impressed with it that I bought my own copy for my home studio. The value for what you get is really great, especially when you compare it with the cost of getting just one real organ. I would buy it again.

If its a low base to give the impression of fte fair, when you tweaking parameters (vibrato, etc. ..), and adding an amp derrire is another thing-(CF Pink Floyd and Genesis).

I have been using qques days, and I found the ambience of 70 '. It is added over the previous version, a lot of little things which, note, the passage through the amps, the reverb or drive.
I spit on Russia to the soft sounds dantestes.
Really, this instrument is attemporel. Put in a little or beacoup in a piece and you get a unique atmosphere.
Native Arussi a hallucinatory reproduction.

Installation without problems, no conflict, the presentation of two pages, lost in clarity compared to a version that is on a page.
Manuel very well done.
It's always the big game to save the log, while Native facilitated the process.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The log runs without pb.
Note changes in the assignment of control change in noon main'nant, it is a bit like you want.

OVERALL OPINION

I used one and loved it. 2 The shatters all, it's really my ultimate pti log.
I love just about everything: the selection of Leslie (open or closed, special low ,...) and organs (Hammond, Farsifa, Harmonium, Continental, ... nine, worn or rotten), the quality of sounds, ...

I do not like the fact of not having all the parameters on one screen, that, that can be hassle if like me you use a midi controller manual and uh ... Peduel? Finally, a pedal, and you pack a little, you know more or you are and my guitarist does not care for my mouth.
Several Hammond, Farsifa, Harmonium, Continental ... for less than 200 euros ... a dream ...
