Introducing your one *stop* for all organ needs: Organ+, a fully featured organ emulator!
Organ+ comes with 7 different organ engines that faithfully recreate the sounds of celebrated transistor and tonewheel organs. The sweet FX stack --with dual chorus/vibrato, vintage-y reverb, overdrive and more-- lets you create ample variation, and hone in on *that* sound. Organ+'s two manuals are individually adjustable with 9 drawbars each, giving you distinct tones that improve phrasing and effect. You can even set organ key clicks and "percussion"!
In addition, you can save your own presets, record your performances (and watch them play back with a friendly phantom pressing the keys), bounce your recordings to audio and export them via Wi-Fi. To start you out, Organ+ comes with 36 presets spanning decades worth of classic organ tones.
You can also play Organ+ using external MIDI controllers. Simply use the appropriate adapter to connect to your device's charging port and rock out!
Whether you are practicing a Bach piece, working on your "John and Marsha" routine, rocking out with your paisley-shirt-loving band, or cheering on your favorite baseball team, Organ+ is ready to accompany you!

Great little app, and a lot lighter than a B-3
Full disclosure: The iPad running this app is lashed to a 150 watt amp that's giving Organ+ a two Leslie rotary speaker boost. Most users likely won't be going this route. That said, the little Korg mini-controller keyboard combines with this app to create an upper manual that totally feeds the B-3 need in a package that weighs a lot less than 450 pounds.
I bought this app after discovering Apple no longer supports the version of GarageBand that runs on the IOS 5.1.1 iPad 1 picked up on the cheap so I could run GarageBand. This one is more than an able substitute for what I needed GarageBand to do. Further, it works. There's no latency. And no real learning curve. I was switching settings on the fly within the first hour. If you're a working musician, pairing Organ+ with C3B3 will give you everything you need - minus the trip to the chiropractor. And only the most seasoned ear will be able to distinguish the sound the app produces from the real deal.
One other benefit: I can set the twin Leslies on chorale and use the digital Leslie on vibrato to create an effect you can't get in the analog world. It's cheap, it works and you won't cripple yourself trying to carry the thing. I'm a happy guy.
Sounds like an organ, but adds unique elements to provide new and interesting sounds. Love the fully adjustable delay instead of boring reverb. Drawbar action is pretty smooth and MIDI is lightning fast.
The distortion is a tad too crunchy and digital, and the rotary speed is a manual slide of the finger (really wish there was adjustable ramp up and down speeds), but they add to the quirky fun and original tone that can be made with this great app.
If you want authentic (although not a lot of controls), go with Garage B (it's tons better than the other organ app out there); but if you want to explore new sonic variety with organ tones, this one is the one to get. Tons of great presets are included with this one, too.
Hmmm, looks like we have a pattern...
I don't mind paying for software but, it looks like this might get abandoned as they just released a new organ app. (As opposed to updating this one). The new app looks great and I am sure I will be happy with it, but, they did kinda say on their forums that they would add audiobus to this app... And another issue is that someone may buy this today and realize a few weeks later it can't do what they would like it to and have to spend more money with the same company. Oh we'll, like I said, I don't really mind paying a few bucks for good software, I am just not sure this is the way to build a strong fan base. So, if you are considering this app new, look for the fresher organ sim by this company with modern features before making a final choice.
