Which 'virtual B3' are you referring to? Maybe that question doesn't really matter. There are several virtual B3s that sound similar to a real B3. Even real B3s don't sound exactly the same. Is the Leslie sound important or are you running your own Leslie? How picky are you?

The only one I know of is Native Instruments' B4. It sounds pretty good.

Is there anyone still selling NI B4?

I found a copy of it NI's B3 at http://www.fruitytuts.com/Downloads/vst-plugins/nativeinstrumentsb4v111-zonerar/.

There are also a couple good free B3 VSTs floating around out there.  I found them by searching free B3 vst. I don't have them loaded anymore so I can't remember what they were called.

If you can get a copy of KeyRig software, the B3 on it is pretty good too, but I like NI's b4 sound better. With any of these though, to really get the feel of a B3 ,you are going to need a keyboard with sliders and plenty of buttons to program your controllers to actually give you the feel and options of a real B3.
