From the 2014 introduction of the revolutionary B9 Organ Machine to the recent launch of the astounding MEL9 Tape Replay Machine, Electro-Harmonix's series of award-winning, astonishingly accurate keyboard emulators transform your axe with finely tuned presets that emulate some of the most popular and classic tones ever recorded.

B9 Organ Machine
With 9 presets that were finely tuned to emulate the most legendary organs from the ‘60s and beyond, the B9 Organ Machine will transform your guitar or keyboard. Control the instrument’s signature percussive click and sweet modulation. Blend your dry signal to create lush layers. Enough tonewheel and combo organ inspiration to light your fire and cook up some green onions!


C9 Organ Machine
The C9 Organ Machine springboards off the revolutionary B9 to mine another rich vein of classic gold and provide players with nine more definitive organ and keyboard sounds. The C9 will transform your instrument into a convincing full body, electric organ or vintage electronic keyboard. For each preset chosen, it also provides precise control over important elements of that sound’s sonic fingerprint like percussive click, modulation, attack/sustain, drawbar setting or high frequency content. Blend your dry signal to create beautiful layers. Lovers of classic organ and keyboard rejoice!
