A good read!

Some will see this as heresy, but I think that most of the Hammond sound
comes from the Leslie speaker. The sound just from the console speaker
on my L100 is almost a different instrument.

With the right patch on a DX7 through a real Leslie you can get a pretty
authentic Hammond sound.
