• Added two new parameters for further percussion customization. Located in EXPERT -> Page 2, the UP CV BYPASS and LO CV BYPASS toggles now let percussion signal from the respective manuals bypass the organ Chorus/Vibrato (bypass is off by default), so as to get a Jimmy Smith-like effect.
• Addressed the issue where MIDI Sustain (CC 64) wasn’t mappable to parameters. (Don’t forget to enable Sustain filters by going to EXPERT -> MIDI if using the sustain pedal for things other than note sustain…also remember that you should select the "momentary" option under a Galileo 2 parameter's MIDI learn prefs, if that parameter is binary (you know, a switch...) and you're using something like a sustain pedal to toggle it (sustain pedals are "momentary").)
• Addressed the issue where external MIDI In on/off settings (found in PREFS -> ADVANCED MIDI) weren’t persistent in AUv3 version. Now they are remembered in the state of each separate plugin instance. ALSO (this is important), the external MIDI IN will now be OFF by default when using Galileo 2 as an AUv3. If your DAW or host doesn’t throughput external MIDI into plugins, then you should probably turn these switches on to use a MIDI keyboard, etc. For example, if you're an AUM user, you want the physical MIDI In to be on for external keyboards to work, but in a DAW you'd typically have it turned off, etc.
Ratings and Reviews
Gallileo 2, Wow!
After studying all the controls for sometime, I find Gallileo 2 to be great and sound great! The “Presets” get you there in an instant.
I really love playing this B3 App. It’s the finest.
Worse than the original
The original Galileo has a very polished professional look. It has excellent MIDI implementation. It is a usable organ. But, as a B3 owner and player of several years, I can assure you Galileo is no B3. It has several idiosyncrasies. Yonac really missed the boat with Galileo 2. They should have stayed with the original and made improvements to it. Not only did they fail to correct the issues with the original, the graphical interface of Galileo 2 looks terrible. The overall sound and effects are inferior to the original. For some reason Yonac feels that all of their instruments must have synthesizer capabilities. What this company truly doesn’t get is that when a keyboard player is looking for an organ, he/she is simply looking for the best sounding ORGAN possible. My advice for anyone trying to decide which version of Galileo to purchase is, get the original. Don’t waste your money on Galileo 2.
Really nice, but..
Great sounds but some controls too fussy. Also, I find I’m always turning down the default reverb level on pretty much all the presets I might use. The tuning control combines both transpose and fine tuning in one control to the detriment of both. Make them separate for goodness sake. On iPad I find it very difficult to return a rotary knob back to its zero because the readout is under my finger. This could be fixed. Hoping to find its all pilot error.
