Hammond B-3X for iPad as Genos extension
« on: December 19, 2019, 01:34:34 PM »
Hi,

two days ago, IK multimedia has released their Hammond B3 emulation, that has been available for PC/Mac only, now also for iPad.

  https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/hammondb3xipad/

This is a full simulation including amps and leslie cabinet. So I think, this will be the best B3 simulation for iPad. I think this is a great addition for all Genos players to get great B3 sounds from only attaching an iPad to the Genos.

Good question. I suppose you'd need an Apple Lightning to USB adapter at minimum. Then you'd need a way to get the B3X audio back into the Genos. Not sure if the iPad headphone output is adequate for this or whether you'd need another interface (DtoA).

Can't find the user manual for that product in their site and they don't go into those details in their videos.

Hi - I have been using B-3X with my Genos; at one point, I had Genos' MIDI connected by USB to an iPad through a "Camera connection kit" (really just a USB to Lightning adapter).  I took the audio from the iPad's headphone out and ran it directly into the Genos AUX ins.  It worked fine!  I have since migrated to having my 2nd keyboard contoller, an M-Audio Code49, be the one I use to play B-3X.  I still run the audio direct to AUX of the Genos.
