  • Rotor Effect: Fine-tune the balance and stereo image, placing your sound precisely in the mix.

  • Speed Control: Experience the magic of classic Leslie rotary sounds by seamlessly adjusting from slow to fast speeds.

  • Pre-Amp: Choose between the original OP-Amp for clean gain, or opt for the Valve to infuse your sound with warm richness, harmonics, and that sought-after analog grit. ## Advanced View:

  • Global Speed:

    • Sync vs. Hz - Discover the versatility of the rotary effect by adjusting its speed. Synchronize it with your DAW’s tempo for precise rhythmic integration or experiment with the classic freerunning Hz setting.

    • Ring Modulation: Push the boundaries with extended rotor ranges, delving into the realm of audio modulation. Try combining higher Hz values with speed set to fast for some wild tones.

    • Ratio: Streamline your workflow by enabling quick and intuitive control over the relationship between the two rotors.

    • Nice and Slow: Achieve a delightful vintage phasing effect on drums by setting the rotors to slow speeds with dry/wet set to full.

  • Visualizer: Dive into an engaging visual representation of your sound, adding depth to the overall experience. Additionally, customize the interaction between the two rotors, deciding whether they chase, oppose, or harmonize with each other.

  • Distance: Take control over the circular motion of the rotary effect, amplifying its impact and even altering its direction. We’ve added 2 new shapes that push the edges of what a Leslie can do, unlocking fresh sonic possibilities.
