New Leslie Sim?

Recommended Posts

I posted this over at "the other place" and wanted to see what kind of response it gets over here as well. Also to give a heads up if you haven't heard of it.

 

Just wanted to see if anyone has tried one of these on keys yet? I'm sure it's no Dynacord but was wondering if it might be an inexpensive alternative.

Sweetwater's price is $119... lists for $165.

 

I gotta try one of these.

Okay, now what are the chances of getting it popped inside my D-152 right before the preamp? Even just a passable Leslie sound without having to take up real estate for the speaker would be [brownacid] like heaven, man... [/brownacid]

I played in an 8 piece horn band. We would often get bored. So...three words:

The Boss lists for $299 - Sweetwater has it for $225. Not as cheap as the Line 6. Heard the audio demos of the Line 6 but can't get the audio demo for the Boss to work. Alright, who wants to play the guinea pig here? Mikey? He'll try anything!

Okay ... you got me there ... but for the difference in price I can get me one of those new fangled lava lamps I saw a post about (http://www.laserpodusa.com/)! I'm really more interested in how the Leslie simulator actually sounds. I notice in reading about it that it "allegedly" models a 145 and a 122 Leslie as well as a Fender Vibrotone. I own a GuitarPort for my Strat and find the amp and effects models to be very good. If this is anything near as good as their other stuff it may be worth considering.

You know, some of the Leslie Sims sound good until you bring them out on stage, then they start sounding very cheap. I'm not saying these are the same way, but I'm willing to have the stage real estate to have a real rotating horn. I'm using the Motion Sound Pro3TM, and flat love it. Sure it costs a lot more than a sim box, but the sound quality is worth it.

Listening to the sound files on the unit that midinut posted about, it didn't sound too bad, but where is the horn/drum combination? I only heard one during the ramp. Any good sim has to have both horn & drum, IMO.
