The 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. 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 do not or will not use. After all, it is an organ.



If you have been playing a classic tonewheel organ, then you will feel at home with the Legend Live. It has two full sets of 9 drawbars for the upper keyboard, two full sets of 9 drawbars for the lower keyboard and 2 pedal drawbars.

Located right where they belong are the switches to control the On/Off, Soft/Normal volume, Fast /Slow decay, 2nd and 3rd harmonic.

Easy control of Vibrato and Chorus.

Legend Upper Manual Realtime Controls include: Volume; Reverb; Drive; Keyclick; Fine Tuning; Crosstalk; Tone Controls; Pedals Sustain; Percussion (Decay, Volume).
Legend Lower Manual Realtime Controls include: Reverb (Hall/Spring); Drive (Classic, Rock); Tonewheel Model (’30, ’50, ’70); Transpose; Rotary (Classic/Rock); Pedals (To Lower).

You can use vibrato/chorus independently for the upper and lower manuals or together. Use the familiar rotary control to select all three Vibrato and Chorus settings.




Along with the best sound and being easy to play, Legend Live has two heavy-duty 61-note keyboards with the feel of an organ, not a synthesizer or cheap portable keyboard. If you play pedals, then you can purchase the optional 25 full-sized console pedals. The Legend Live pedals are heavy-duty and are same radius as the classic tonewheel organs, which makes playing the pedals feel right.




The VISCOUNT by KeyB Legend Live organ, designed in cooperation with NEWTONE, uses the innovative TMT (Tonewheel  Modelling Technology) able to perfectly clone the classic tonewheel organ. The result is a natural sound that can not 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 is not convenient to take a rotary speaker with you. Don’t worry! Legend Simulation is incredibly realistic. It is so good you will have to look twice to see where the rotors are, this is because of the TMT engine.




AUDIO IN/OUT: Legend Live can be connected to either a keyboard amplifier via outputs left / right. Possibly, via 11 pin connection, it can be connected to a Rotary Speaker.

AUDIO PEDALS OUTPUT: Legend Live is the only one with a pedals output dedicated to the sound of the pedalboard, without getting into the channel of Vibrato/Chorus and Rotary Emulation.

FX SEND/ RETURN: Be able to connect your favourite external effect.

ANALOG IN: It allows you to use the effects of an external instrument.

INPUT GAIN: It allows you to control the volume of an external instrument.


EXP: Expression Pedals

ROTARY: To change the speed of the Rotary.

HOLD: Hold control both for Legend Live and for an external instruments.


FULL MIDI: Out 1, Out 2, In, Thru, Pedalboard In.


USB TO HOST: useful to connect a computer for MIDI and software update.

USB POWER CHARGE: You can power supply Smartphone / Tablet.
