Ft. Lauderdale, FL - March 2017… Synthax, Inc., the Americas distributor for Ferrofish, a leading manufacturer of high quality digital audio solutions, announces the Ferrofish B4000+ Organ Module is the ideal solution for getting the classic organ and rotary speaker sound from a compact unit that is easy to transport. Featuring nine real drawbars, high resolution endless potentiometers, and a TFT display for clear feedback of the various parameters, the Ferrofish B4000+ delivers the highest authenticity of sound emulation—thanks to a combination of Sharc DSP processing power from Analog Devices and a Cortex 3 ARM processor.

The Ferrofish B4000+ Organ Module has a rich feature set. Three full polyphony manuals are supported, along with percussion that includes harmonic, attack, and decay settings. Rotating speakers emulation is provided, as well as tube amplifier emulation with overdrive. There is an FX section with chorus/vibrato, reverb, and compressor, as well as envelope attack and decay, MIDI keysplit, and velocity. Six high resolution metal dials provide smooth, precise control over the various system parameters.

For today’s keyboard player who is seeking that famous tonewheel organ sound, the B4000+ is ideal. Based on physical modelling, the unit precisely emulates the vintage organ sound. Players can set the age of the organ, the leakage between the drawbars, and even the tonewheel condition can be adjusted. Further, there are many more parameters that can be defined, including percussion, and keyclick with key contact delay.

In terms of connectivity, the B4000+ excels. The unit incorporates a USB interface, two MIDI inputs, stereo analog output and headphones, a stereo analog input to the FX, and a jack for an expression pedal.

Mathias von Heydekampf, Managing Director at Synthax, commented on the Ferrofish B4000+ Organ Module, “The B4000+ is a surprisingly compact unit that faithfully delivers the sound of the classic organ and rotating speaker cabinet that has been a staple of rock, pop, R&B, jazz and other music styles for the past few decades. Featuring quality workmanship along with world-class system components and engineering, this organ module delivers big, true sound quality in a form factor that doesn’t require a truck to move it around. I’m confident that keyboard players everywhere will be impressed with its authentic sound.”

The Ferrofish B4000+ Organ Module carries an MSRP of $595. The unit is available now.
