"Thanks to awesome dad for using his workshop to craft a new organ pedalboard, now with hinges to slot into the keyboard and hold it in place so no more need for gaff tape! We've cleaned it up and rewired it, ready for the Gypsy Caravan tour! Signal Chain: Korg ??Black Finger (12v AC) ??Deluxe Memory Man (24v DC) ??Neo Ventilator Leslie Sim (12v DC) ??Wiggler (Tremolo/Vibrato) (12v AC) ??Wah Pedal (9v DC) ??Volume Pedal??Hall of Fame Reverb (9v DC) ??Amp(eg) all powered by the CIOKOLATE power supply, can handle an insane number / variety of voltages."more
This will be a very short review of the Neo Ventilator.
For live use, I replaced my 147 Leslie with the Ventilator and have never looked back. Done, end of review! Now, you go get one.
Okay, one inherent feature I really do like is that the unit produces the 'swishing/swirling' sound a real Leslie makes. Even when there is no signal passing thru the Vent, the Vent sounds like a mic'ed cabinet. Without looking at the fast/slow LED meter, you can easily hear if the Vent is ready in slow or fast position before you play a chord.
Though, here is my wish list for improvements: -- need a rack-mount version -- needs separate L/R outputs for both Horn and Rotor. Hmmm, why separate? Because when using a real Leslie, I often like to put verb/ddl only on the horn and not the rotor. Also, I often like to pan the horn a left and the rotor a right...this creates a very wide stereo effect...with different speeds of motion going on in each speaker.....try it sometimes...you'll like it. -- needs separate acceleration/deceleration speeds for horn and rotor. -- remote fast/slow footswitch needs to have led-light that shows if unit is in Fast or Slow position.
