This plug-in is great

I love the sound of this Rotary Cabinet. After years as a church organist and trying a plethora of Leslie emulators, this plug-in really is the next best thing to a Leslie cabinet. The adjustable parameters are great, but it is ready to go immediately after down load. I'm using the plugin with a Roland VR-09.

Have to agree with the rest

Love the sound - but no Apollo version is just two thumbs down.

Great, not only on organs....

Besides that it performs the classic leslie speaker effect the most realisticly I have ever heard from a plugin, it also does a miracle with the bass (or any other instument) if you are in need of saturation or distortion by using the drive knob. Recommended.

Great for adding movement and stereowidth

I use it as a sound design tool to enhance any sound sources by using it as a send FX. Sounds great on hihats.

Best Leslie emulation by far

I've used many Leslie emulations and some
Are quite good but this is at a whole different level! Of course the mechanical sounds are novel but they can be turned off . The overall effect is a close as you'll get to a real mic'ed leslie. I pretty just use the presets and there hasn't been a time I really needed much customization. Great on guitar too!! I look forward to experimenting on other sources

THE WATERFALL ROTARY SPEAKER

It works well for me as a previous owner of the Leslie's 122, 125, 147rv and the big 900 models.
I think this Waterfall Rotary Speaker is a pretty good emulation of the Leslie hardware cabinets.

EXCELLENT IS THE MIDDLE NAME OF UNIVERSAL AUDIO

I have been searching for a plugin that emulates the L22 Leslie for many backbreaking years of lugging around a two hundred pound speaker cabinet....... but none had been found to be accurate. Although not perfect it is the BEST rotary emulation I have ever heard. Thanks UA for QUALITY products!!!!

Joining new music

I feel like the addition of new tools to music production makes it even richer.

It makes all the sounds and noises

I love the realism in this plugin. It really has a random physical presence that makes it sound so much like the real speaker cabinet. The rotation noise continues for a couple seconds after the playing stops which is so cool.

Almost bought, then noticed it's Native-only -- it cannot be used for performance

I don't have a serious issue with native plugins in general but a speaker effect should be a UAD plugin. Example, if you're playing a guitar through a rotating speaker, you will play differently to experiment with and optimize the effect -- you can't do that with a native plugin (in most cases, practically speaking). For $200 USD, I can choose from an array of effects pedals that will do the same thing, and all of them will work on stage as well as in the studio.

Magical

It will do things you wish other plug-ins could have done. But this is the real McCoy !

Leslie, Leslie oh Leslie

I grew up with albums using the Leslie effect when bands like the Beatles and Hendrix first discovered that you could use this effect for other instruments than the intended Hammond Organ. Here you have yet another winner from UA with an authentic sound of the Leslie rotating speaker cabinet, with a lot of different options for settings from clean classic sounds, to distorted wild sounds. This is super nice and doesn't get any better!

It's a good buy.

With some tweaking this is a good tool to have however I own a stryman stomp box that sounds better.
