Anyway to mute or muffle them? Looking specifically at the jazzy 2 or Even Out Organs. Appreciate it!

Key clicks are typically considered to be part of a good emulation of Hammond tone-wheel models, such as the B3. Any clicks heard when playing the Voices you mentioned are part of the Waveforms. Minimizing such clicks would require editing the Voices. One approach could be to increase the Attack Time of the AEG (Amplitude Envelope Generator) setting for each active Element, along with reducing the Initial Time setting if not already set to 0(zero). Other adjustments could be made to Cutoff settings and/or EQ per Element, in an effort to somewhat attenuate the higher frequencies. EG Velocity setting adjustments might also be required if the clicks are more prominent at higher key velocities.

There’s no specific formula for attaining your goal. Which of these adjustments would be appropriate depends on your personal expectations, such as how much of a change in character of the Voice you find acceptable. My suggestion is to experiment, and store any result that you find satisfactory as a User Voice (or a Mix Voice if in a sequencer mode).

Thanks so much. The time setting really helped me out on top of changing the waveform to “Draw 16 of”. I think “of” waveforms don’t have any Key clicks

You’re welcome. I’m glad you were able to get a satisfactory sound.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that “Of” was an abbreviation for “offset” - that is, the Waveform starting point is delayed. In the case of the organ Waveforms that would attenuate key click if it’s present on the non-Of version.
