Hammond GM 1000 Midi-Module 

 


De GM 1000 was een poging van Hammond om in de MIDI markt mee te spelen.
Ongetwijfeld was deze module niet van eigen makelij, wat natuurlijk geen schande is.


Twee opmerkelijke zaken vielen op:
1) flexibiliteit: er zaten naast een flink aantal GM geluiden ook een flink aantal Drawbar sounds in en de Leslie was schakelbaar  tussen slow en fast.
2) totále onbedienbaarheid: ofschoon de module best veel edit mogelijkheden had was de bedieningsstruktuur ongetwijfeld ontworpen door een nederlands politicus.

Hammond bracht in het orgel-model XB-3 een"luikje"aan, waarin de GM-1000 geschoven kon worden,en daarvoor fraai in het orgel "integreerde":



De Gm-1000 is ook opp de markt geweest als Sound Saurus BH-1000.
Gezien het aanbod van de laatste jaren,is hij zeer weinig verkocht,en daardoor best uniek te noemen:

 



Hier is de Fabrieks-demo te horen:
