MVintageRotary by MeldaProduction is a remarkable simulation of the old Leslie cabinets and loudspeakers. Mostly, I intend to record vocals through MVintageRotary. This plugin is perfect for creating that early to mid Beatles vocal sound — just a touch of rotary movement can bring extra life to anything you run through it, especially the human voice! I have also disabled the cabinet in my organ plugin (as per another forum user's suggestion), and the results were wonderful — "another quality-step upward." In the past, I needed to combine vibrato and auto-panning to achieve anything close to the Leslie sound. And, even then, there I was missing the Doppler effect, which is the secret ingredient.
Doppler Effect is all there.
Crossover splitting is effective.
Easy to use interface (gain, width, balance, dynamics, absorption, Eq, Amp, etc.).
Wide clarity range from clean to heavy analog (or digital) distortion.
No latency issues.
Stereo width control.
Extensive modulation control (a pair of global).
Sync to DAW.
Highly responsive (and fun) mod wheel.
Randomizer (ah, reminds me of that sweet feature in MDrummer).
Limiter that prevents spikes.
About 30 useful presets with a few accelerations (1000, 2000, 5000ms).
GUI is not colorful or exciting.
It would be nice to have more acceleration curves.
MVintageRotary is simple and fun to use; and, by engaging the "advanced settings button" you can go deep. The only common control to all Leslie speakers is a dial controlling the master volume — Melda has given us much more, providing an array of features found throughout the Leslie line. This plugin is perfect for ascertaining that Leslie sound for keys, guitars, and of course — the John Lennon vocal sound, which is my goal. There is plenty of chorale and tremolo. Melda has done a fine job recreating a classic without sacrificing quality or sound. I give MVintageRotary two thumbs up.
