I've got a Bontempi B3 electric organ from the 70s or 80s with 25 keys, a six-chord accompaniment and a traditional fan, giving it a slight Leslie effect. I sampled each key individually.

The "B3 Organ" Live Pack contains 2 fully macro mapped Instrument Racks as well as a raw Simpler preset. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.

It's the end of the year, just after Christmas and this is also post numero 500 on Sonic Bloom. Since a lot of you seem to really love my skins, I've got some more for you. For free as usual.
