That's probably because you're not well over 100 years old, and therefore think the present is musically glorious.
I agree with most of that, Raindog. (I'm not a fan of the Jon Lord sound either, though I quite like Steve Winwood's roaring B3 during his Spencer Davis days.)Overall I´m not quite sure ...
Btw, when listening a second time, i really think that an EQ with a boost in the bass and lowered in the MID should help a lot matching the two here.
I agree, but, it's important to notice that if you enable all drawbars, the scanner vibrato (this adds some volume as well) and then play a big chord, it gets very close to 0db and to saturation
So we preferred to leave it like this
I don't know how VB3 recorded theirs (or even if they use IRs) but it sounds like the mics were placed extremely close (to the point that there is no room ambience at all)
God, I love living in the glorious past.
