It's difficult to watch without a bit of "back seat driving". But this isn't a criticism. He does a good job of disclaiming about these various aspects of the differences.

The differences in tone could be quickly compensated with a bit of drawbar adjustment.

The Galileo 2 examples of leslie had quite a bit of distortion, which I think you can adjust-- but he seemed reluctant to do much on-the-fly adjustment to get them closer.

I could imagine someone doing a response video that just shows whether or not some of those qualities can be achieved with the Galileo settings.

I have this vague recollection that the key click on a real B3 has more to it than just a click.

One observation that applies to lots of comparison videos, is that when there is a slight difference of tone, -- in this case the B-3x having more fundamental frequency-- an EQ can easily be used to offset these minor differences. In the case of an organ, you literally have control over the fundamental frequency per voice, so it is even easier.

When the difference has to do with distortion, you can adjust the settings that are built in to the VI to control how much drive.

In the case of that leslie, it was hard to deny that the differences went well beyond that distortion in the Galileo instrument.

I wonder if a person could create a set of IR's for a real leslie at fixed positions of rotation-- dividing the 360 rotation into say, 8 positions, then use a crossfading algorithm to cycle through them. I think a leslie must be pretty complicated to emulate since it is not often done very well.
