That’s fantastic man!
My father – and so I – had a M-100. I wrote about it here: http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/why-did-you-become-a-composer-and-when/97407?page=5#798677
Unfortunately he trade it one day for an allegedly expensive carpet and bought a Korg CX-3 which was great – but not a real Hammond. From a present-day perspektive a shame.
One day, when I helped a friend bringing back his gear to his rehearsal room I had the pleasure to touch a Hammond again and we did a little late night session. At this moment I realised that there was never a synth giving you that feeling and organic tone like a real Hammond! I had the same experience with a Fender Rhodes Mark II which my father also sold for a DX-7.NEVER give up your Hammond my friend!
thank you very much for posting this! That’s pretty cool that you also have some solid experiences with those old vintage Hammond organs! And you are right, the same goes for an old Fender Rhodes electric piano! Nowadays those instruments become increasingly popular and for all of those who own these beloved items I can only recommend to take good care of it. Even if some software or hardware organs / electric pianos / clavinets get closer and closer to the originals, nothing can replace the feeling of playing the originals in my opinion. Hope one day you will get the chance to use the originals (Hammond or Rhodes) again in your studio, Udo!
Ich verspreche dir, die Hammond wird es auch in Zukunft immer gut bei mir haben (I promise I will always take care of my Hammond)
My tough old lady from 1964 – A vintage Hammond tonewheel organ:
Well, the image above shows my good old vintage Hammond organ hooked up to a genuine Leslie rotary speaker cabinet – both are incredibly famous all around the world and there are countless so called “clonewheels” on the market – in hard- and software available… But my opinion is, the originals (both Hammond & Leslie) are often imitated but never equalled! The sound effect especially of the Leslie speaker is so complex to imitate because of the frequency and amplitude modulations happening at the same time, most simulations sound so bad that it really makes no fun to use.
However, the model I own is unfortunately not the mighty Hammond B3, but the M-100 is nevertheless world famous as it was the model being used for the record everybody should know: ‘A whiter shade of pale’ by Procol Harum! Matthew Fisher (the keyboardist of PH) said that he used a Hammond M100 for this record and not the B3 or a similar console organ.
The organ is really heavy and the tone generator needs oiling from time to time, this makes it so pretty exciting to me! The ampilifer has tubes which are glowing so nicely, the organ smells because of the warm oil inside during operation, yes it has a kind of soul, it lives and can’t be compared to any other keyboard instrument!
I LOVE HAMMONDS (& LESLIES)

Thanks for listening!
yes, I think we all experience the same issues the last couple of days. The only way to download the preview of a certain track is, right click on the player button of the thumbnail of the specific track, choose “save target as” from the drop-down menue and then the download of the preview should work properly!
Hope that this issue will be solved soon anyway
You are welcome! Great that it worked
the staff is already aware of this issue and is working on that meanwhile! But you can download the preview in spite of that problem, you just have to go back to the portfolio view, click with the right mouse button on the thumbnail of the specific track you want to have its preview from and then it should work! I tried it and it worked out!
Hope I could help you
