New Sampling Technology
A-305 Control CenterNow, an all-new sound engine captures not only the sound and feel of a Hammond Tone Wheel Generator, but high-quality digital voices and sounds as well. Hammond has recreated the idiosyncrasies of the electro-mechanical tone wheel generator, such as the Drawbar foldbacks at the top and bottom octaves, the variances in key click, and the effect of overdriving an amplifier. The total effect of the A-305 is the sound and feel of the B-3 right down to the new six-position Vibrato and Chorus Control Knob.

The A-305 can perform in virtually any MIDI environment. SEND and RECEIVE channels are programmable. And the manuals can be "mapped" to selectively play the internal voices or voices from a connected MIDI device.
Extra Voice

In addition, 10 drum kits are provided to further enhance your playing. And, you can use the Drawbars to adjust the volume of the Extra Voices while you're playing.
Nine programmable Presets are available for Swell, Great and Pedal divisions . These can be easily programmed with your own settings.
