“Stan’s Vibe”: Stan’s Vibe uses all three Parts. The H3 Organ is split with lower and upper manuals on the left and right. Additionally, Keys A/B are split with 73Rd electric piano on the right classic FM* BoogieBass on the left. The split point for the entire Live Set is F3. Play bass on the left, comp and solo on the right. It’s a great modern take on a classic organ and EP sound.
“Stan’s Jacket”: This Live Set uses “OB Brass 2” in Part A. Switch on Part B and you’ll have “FM* Piano DA” split to the right. It adds a cool FM EP sound to the punchy brass sound. The rotary speaker is assigned to Part B to give it some motion. This is a cool comp sound.
