mini vent versus vew ventilator

Recommended Posts

just wondering if anyone has compared the new vent to the mini vent. I originally purchased the old vent for my SK1, but never really liked it, so I sold it. maybe it was me but, I couldn't get it to sound any noticeable difference from the internal sim on my SK1. was thinking of getting the mini vent for organ. any comments or should I go the extra for the new vent. thank you.......Larry

The differences in sound between the Vent 1 and Vent 2 are not appreciably more noticeable. There are more features, balancing between rotors, speed control changes independently, etc.. My guess is that if you "never liked" (your quote) the Vent 1 then I'd think that you're not going to suddenly like the Vent 2.

 

Since you were thinking of getting the mini vent, the sound engines are identical to the Vent 1 (slightly less features). If you didn't like Vent 1 I can't possibly see that you would suddenly like the mini vent.

the only place where you will find a real difference between the SK1 and the Vent is the overdrive. The Vent clearly wins here. The majority of Vent users use it for that reason only, best I can tell. The SK1 sim is certainly very good by itself.

I had the Vent 2 before I got my SK2, and I think I've only used it once with the SK2, in fact I'm considering selling it, it just doesn't really do the SK any favours in my opinion, the internal sim is excellent.

 

I previously had a Hammond XE Organ and the Vent transformed it into an great sounding organ, but for some odd reason it just doesn't do it for the SK2, and I'm not bothered about overdrive, I don't use it anyway.

The o/d on the Vent 2 is amazing. it really gives my SK1 some balls. i have the SK1 drive at about 11 o'clock, and then kick in the Vent 2 drive at between 2 and 3 o'clock. Using them both together sounds great!

I have the Vent 1 and 2 - I did have the Mini Vent for a while but sold it to get the Vent 2 because I wanted the extra controls over speed and acceleration. Vent 1 and 2 are supposedly the same sound engine, although for some reason I tend to prefer the Vent 1 for one of my organ clones and the Vent 2 for another of them.
