All user reviews for the Hammond XM-1 + XMc-1

Damage the connecting cable is too short and the connectors are not standard. Every B3 sounds slightly different, so while the emulation may not sound like one example, hammonc could be as near as damn it to another.

The inspiring look of the Vox with its reverse colour keys, the reliability of modern technology, and a module full of custom-programmed Hammond presets.

The XM1 is extremely flexible and if you’re prepared to spend a bit of time tinkering with the hidden parameters, it’s almost certain you’ll get very close to the Hammond sound that’s in your head. First I play a real Hammond.

To cut a long and predictable story short, I bought both the XM1 module and its accompanying XMc1 drawbar controller immediately after trying it, but was my new purchase really a B3 in a box? For specifications, say you have a hammond thanks to hammohd small box that you put on another synth. Surely the whole point of this module was to provide a stand-alone solution.


After that, once you set one or more sound “type”, you can use the console zippers for adjusting the sound live. Leslie effects with several simulation models and adjust speeds and accelerations, etc.

True, the XM1 was expensive for an organ module, but time has shown it to be money very well spent.

But if you were going to xj1 buying pieces of furniture you may as well get a real tonewheel organ as well, and then why would you bother with an XM1?

If you take a Roland D70 for example, there is a slight offset.
