The Legend organ is able to perfectly recreate the sound of tonewheels organs offering you again the "vintage feeling". With four sets of drawbars and double keyboards, this organ stands apart from all the rest in advanced technology sound, feel and much more affordable pricing. Every aspect of a tonewheel keyboard and sound is so perfectly duplicated that players all over the world are saying "it's the best ever!"


The new VISCOUNT Legend organ designed and engineered in Italy in cooperation with KeyB, provides incredible expressive capabilities in an easy-to-use interface in a perfect portable solution. The Legend uses the latest in tonewheel modelling technology allowing exigent musicians to play without compromise the fabulous organ sound.

When you sit down at the Legend, all you have to do is turn it on and play. Everything you need and are familiar with, on a classic tonewheel organ, is there right where it belongs. No confusing menus or LCD screens full of features that you most likely don’t or won’t use. After all, it's an organ.

Sound Generation

The VISCOUNT by KeyB Legend organ, designed in cooperation with NEWTONE, uses the innovative TMT (Tonewheel Modeling Technology) able to perfectly clone the classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that can’t be obtained by traditional sampling. Legend reproduces also important characteristics of a tonewheel organ including cross talk, tonewheels flutter, electric hum and octave tapers. Moreover there is also an accurate Rotary Simulation. Maybe you don’t have one or it’s not convenient to take a rotary speaker with you. Don’t worry! The new Legend Simulation is incredibly realistic. It’s so good you’ll have to look twice to see where the rotors are, this is because of the TMT engine.
