Custom Setups

 

Sk Series

  • The Hammond Sk Stage Keyboards have been developed to serve musicians of every genre all over the world, and the Presets found in the OEM set reflect the Sk’s readiness to serve as the core keyboard in any lineup, anywhere.Our US and Canadian Artists /Endorsees, along with the thousands of you in the extended Hammond Family have shared your wants and needs with us, and we have begun to create special Setups and Whole Setups to reflect those needs. We have created new combinations, combining the most popular OEM presets and often, adding brand new presets making the Sk even easier to play. We’ve condensed the USER collections in some cases to make the selection of presets easier for the Working Musician. You’ll only see the presets that fit the category. Of course the entire OEM Preset list resides in the “P” Bank of the Sk’s.The FAVORITES in each setup are the “Go-To” sounds for that choice, and reflect the sounds you’ll need most.The Presets may all be edited to your needs, and the Setups can be changed, as always.Remember, a SETUP loads and saves in seconds-It records ALL the parameters, Presets, Leslie Cabinets and Custom Tonewheel sets.A WHOLE records everything a SETUP records, plus ALL the Library Voices currently loaded in your SK keyboard. This load/save can take from 7 to 30 minutes depending on the speed of your USB thumb drive.AND BE SURE TO BACK UP YOUR CURRENT SETUP BEFORE LOADING ANY NEW SETUP, SO YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR PREVIOUS WORK!!  Consult the “HOW TO” section of www.hammondorganco.com, with attention to the “Save Your Setup” and “Loading A Custom Setup” Videos.

36 Presets.
The Stock OEM Presets of Vintage Hammond Organs have been used by countless Artists over the past 80 years, making them among the most recognized sounds in all music. There were 2 sets available-The “Standard” Set (sometimes referred to as the “Liturgical” set) which dates back to the earliest Hammond Models. These were the “factory” presets. You also had the option to order your Hammond with the “Theatre” Set, which was a bit more skewed towards popular music. (N.B. Please keep in mind “popular” music here means the popular music of the day-in this case the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s)
These sounds were created by Hammond Hall-Of-Famer Porter Heaps. Here they are replicated, as they were installed on the Classic Instruments at the factory. The Organ Profile for all these registrations is identical, using Jim Alfredson’s 1954 C-2 Custom Tonewheels and a Vintage 31-H Leslie created especially for this Setup by Hammond Artist Steven Eaklor.
There are 37 presets. The STANDARD Upper and Lower presets are followed by the THEATRE Upper and Lower Presets. Favorites 1-10 correspond to U001-U010. Presets U037-U100 are blank.
The Legend on each preset is to be read as follows:
“Up” refers to the “reverse key” presets on the UPPER Manual of a Vintage Hammond
“Lo” refers to the “reverse key” presets on the LOWER Manual of a Vintage Hammond
The Note name (A, B, C#, etc.) refers to the location of the preset on a Vintage Hammond.
N.B. Even though the presets are divided into “Upper” and “Lower” designations, the split function is not engaged, and all the presets will play on the “Upper” section of the Sk.

10 Presets
Many musicians prefer to register their Hammond Organs manually, rather than rely on Presets. We have also found these types of Players are sometimes reluctant to go “under the hood”, relying on the Hammond Profile last used in Manual Mode, which may or may not be the ideal “model” an Organist desires. In this Setup, various “styles” of Hammond Organs with their Typical Leslies or Speakers are assigned to each of the Favorite buttons without registration. Here you may set the Drawbars, Vibrato, Percussion and other parameters as if the Sk was in MANUAL mode. Also included are “Manuals” for the Pipe Organ Voices, Farf Combo Organ and VX Combo Organ. Two extra patches are provided-Acoustic Piano with Bass and Electric Piano with Bass, for the jobbing player’s convenience. The entire control panel is LIVE, ready for your resgistrations.
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO PRESS THE MANUAL BUTTON WHEN USING THESE FAVORITES. THE MANUAL BUTTON REMAINS IN ITS USUAL STATE AND MAY BE USED AS AN “ELEVENTH” MANUAL.

JIM ALFREDSON’S 1954 B-2
Jazz/Blues/Prog Master Jim Alfredson has cloned his wonderful 1954 B-2, and releases it here for all to share. It’s a bit huskier than the Factory Stock Profiles,and takes to the 122 and 147 Digital Leslie Profiles. The #1 Set should be installed in “B1-5” and the #2 in “B2-5”. As of this writing there is no “Mellow” version of the “Jim” set.
