Waterfall Keyboards: Along with the best sound and being easy to play, the Legend Live has two heavy-duty 61-note keyboards with the feel of an organ, not a synthesizer or cheap portable keyboard. If you play pedals, then you can purchase the optional 25 full-sized console pedals. The Legend Live pedals are heavy-duty and are same radius as the classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel right.
Sound Generation: The new VISCOUNT by KeyB Legend Live organ, designed in cooperation with Newton, uses the innovative TMT (Tonewheel Modeling Technology) able to perfectly clone the classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that can't be obtained by traditional sampling. Legend reproduces also important characteristics of a tonewheel organ including cross talk, tonewheels flutter, electric hum and octave tapers. Moreover there is also an accurate Rotary Simulation. Maybe you don't have one or it's not convenient to take a rotary speaker with you. Don't worry! The new Legend Simulation is incredibly realistic. It's so good you'll have to look twice to see where the rotors are, this is because of the TMT engine.
