These MP3s show off some of the technology that I will be using for the Jazz and Rock Organ
groove sections. The MP3s above are exact "off the record" replications of the LiminaEx12.mp3.
The Midi file that I created is exactly tempo matched to the original recording. All the note
pitches and lengths are exactly what the orginal player played. I am still working on the expression
algorithms so my reproduction of the expression pedal is not exact yet (they were done by hand -
or rather by foot :-) In fact, it is so exact that you can play right beside the original and hear

How were the MP3s made?
I do not represent any of the companies that manufacture the clones tested.
I do own all the clones tested.
All MP3s were made using Sonar 3 Producer Edition.
A MOTU 828mkII was used for the I/O.
Alesis M1 Active Monitors.
All clones were recorded in stereo from their line outs.
All B3 Clone Comparison MP3s were made using the same midi
file and same registrations.
Every attempt was made to provide the best representation of each clone and also to make each MP3 to be as close in volume as possible.
