This is the last App that I will review from this developer because of a very big dispute with him…
No, I am kidding! No, because I already reviewed all his Apps: Alina String Ensemble, Super Manetron and Combo Organ. I love all of them… perfect emulations of instruments that I really love. Pocket Organ is an Hammond organ. The sound quality is really great and the 20 drawbars give you the sensation to play on a real Hammond organ. (9 for the 2 main keyboards and 2 for the Bass) . On the main screen, 2 knobs (on the right side) allow to set the Scale for the 2 keyboards named Great and Swell. A transpose switch is available for the Bass one. All the keyboards can be scrolled. All the other switches are dedicated to the presets excepted the one, down, on the left corner: the Tremolo (Leslie). You can choose to assign the Tremolo to the 2 main keyboards, the rotary type or to stop it as well in the third page, The Fx page. Here an Overdrive, a Reverb and 5 switches for the Keyboards. Clic, Perc and Harmonic sounds. Volume (touch) and Decay. The second screen is dedicated to the 20 drawbars.
To conclude. This emulation is one more time great. The presets in app purchases too. Everything is perfect excepted one thing. The lack of a Midi implementation! I don’t know why, but it’s too bad because playing with the 3 keyboards is not so easy and I know that a real Hammond player will be very frustrated to play on his iPad instead of a external Midi controller. The other players, like me will be very disappointed to not be able to control it with a Midi sequencer. Only because of this I rate it as a very good App and not a Killer one, but I really hope that I will be able to change my rating when a future update will be released. With the Midi Feature....
