The Iconic Leslie Rotary Effect
The Leslie rotary effect was original created for electric organs to better emulate a pipe or theatre organ. This was achieved by using a speaker with a rotating drum and horn to create that classic 'tremolo' effect. After it gain popularity, many manufactures started offering an emulation of that effect in a pedal format. These were used by notable guitarists, including Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and Robin Trower.
Neo Instrument's Ventilator 2 faithfully recreates that Leslie 122 speaker in a compact format. Everything from the original's mechanical properties, bass and treble rotors, 800hz crossover, and even frequency response has been captured and recreated. You even have access to a drive section which simulates the distortion/power tube saturation you'd get from the Leslie's amp.
A Convenient and Easy-to-Use Pedal
Despite the fact the Neo Instruments Ventilator offers a digital effect, it still handles like an analogue effect (similar convenience and ease-of-use). You also have access to stereo inputs and outputs, letting you use it in a variety of setups and to create that classic 'spatial' effect.
The input is also equipped with a lo/hi switch. This lets you adjust the input gain to suit different instruments, such as guitars or keyboards with a very low-output. The Rotary Pedal also features true bypass switching to ensure your instrument's signal remains intact and unaffected when the pedal is disengaged or even switched off.
Powerful Controls for Creating Expressive Soundscapes
The Ventilator II's control section features 10 adjustable parameters spread across five control knobs. This gives you excellent control over the pedal's effect while keeping its size and complexity to a minimum. Simply hitting the bypass and slow/fast footswitch simultaneously will enter the control's secondary function.
The first control knob lets you set the speed of the rotors in either the fast or slow modes, essentially giving you access to a wide variety of different tremolo effects. The second knob can be used to either fine tune the sound or adjust the time it takes the rotors to go from slow to fast or vice versa.
Its drive control lets you activate the on-board tube sim, giving your tone a distinct distortion. If you can set this control up, you can then use your instrument's volume control to add in more saturation. The drive's secondary function lets you switch between three frequency responses - optimising the pedal for either guitar or keyboard.
The last two controls let you set the mix of the lower and higher rotors to match different environments. You can even remove the rotary effect on the bass to create a classic ''Memphis style'' Leslie sound. These controls also adjust the distance the virtual mic is from the rotors - perfect for decreasing any annoying 'wub' sounds.
Momentary/Latching Footswitches and Expression Pedal
Along with its powerful control section, the Neo instruments Ventilator's footswitches can be adjusted to suit your playing style. Simply hold down the slow/fast switch when powering up to enter the pedal's edit routine. From there, you can change the behaviour of the stop and slow/fast footswitches, changing them from latching to momentary.
You can also connect an expression pedal and use the remote knob to set which function it affects. You can set to either control the stop and fast/slow footswitches, or adjust the speed/mix of the effect.
