Tonewheel Organ Heavyweight

The B-3 V delivers the most authentic tonewheel organ and rotary speaker experience you’ll find anywhere, plus customizations that open up new creative opportunities.

Monarch of electronic organs, the rich sounding B3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, rock, reggae and R&B—not to mention pro studios everywhere—for over a half century. Its electromagnetic tonewheel design gave it a beefy quality not found on later transistor organs. Our faithful homage includes an authentic rotary speaker and an array of stomp boxes, plus inspiring updates like analog circuit mods and drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.

Majestic Sound

The B-3 V gives you the sound of undisputed organ royalty—roadies not required.

No other organ captured the hearts of keyboardists, spanning so many genres and years. It had the subtlety for jazz at the hands of artists like Jimmy Smith, Joey Defrancesco and John Medeski. It had the grace for gospel, as demonstrated by Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark and Cory Henry. It had the energy to drive the reggae behind the likes of Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, and the soul of James Brown and Sly Stone. Most visibly, it had the raw power to hold its own in a rock world as diverse as ELP, Santana, Yes, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, The Allman Brothers, and Blood, Sweet and Tears.

Whether you’re playing solo, in a group, or in a mix, Arturia’s B-3 V lets you cover the organ parts for any genre using the sound and feel of the real thing.

Unmatched Authenticity

Even if you already have a virtual tonewheel organ… you owe it to yourself to try the B-3 V.

There are organs and there are B3s. Then there are B3 emulations and Arturia’s B-3 V. Where most other attempts are based on samples that only capture some of the qualities, we created the B-3V using the same critically acclaimed modeling technology that distinguishes our entire V Collection of classic instruments. We put that same attention to detail into the included rotary speaker as well.

When you can have the best, why settle for anything less?

Even better with age

The B-3 V improves on a classic, with everything you need in an organ rig and more built right in.

Rotary speakers have become an essential part of the tonewheel organ sound, so we’ve naturally included one. We also included a classic “twin” guitar amp too, but why stop there? We’ve also included a whole host of gorgeously modelled effects for you to recreate those classic combinations, as well as a jaw-dropping convolution reverb to place your organ in real acoustic spaces, or process them with vintage reverb.

Because this instrument is brought to life in your computer with modelling, you’re even able to modify previously fixed analog circuit features like key click. Our most radical enhancement is the addition of a modulation section to automate the movement of drawbars using envelopes, LFOs and step sequencers, letting you infuse your music with new animated textures.

With its combination of faithful realism and new mods, the B-3 V has you covered whether you’re playing standards, rocking classics or pioneering new musical ground.

A new lease of life

We didn't just make a software clone, we added loads of powerful, exciting new features too.
