PSP Audioware has announced the release of the PSP L’otary, an emulation of a rotary speaker.
We based our algorithm upon two original and legendary models: the Leslie® 122 and 147, and spent hundreds of hours perfecting our simulations. In other words, this is not just another modulation effect! PSP L’otary is capable of reproducing as precisely as possible the classic sounds of those famous rotary speakers.
That said, the PSP L’otary is capable of creative divergences from the original. For example, you could set up both the rotating high frequency horn and the rotating low frequency drum independently from each other and emulate speakers with a static drum or even a broken horn or drum engine.
POP L’otary for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD until February 1st, 2015 (regular $99 USD). Prices ex. VAT.

Precisionsound has announced the release of Gospel Drawbars, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.
Our goal with Gospel Drawbars has not been to make a generic virtual recreation of an organ but to capture the character of a unique instrument, in this case one of the first ever Hammond organ models made, a Hammond AB from the late 1930s.
We have created a user-friendly control panel for blending a number of pre-made settings. The drawbar settings have been carefully chosen to include both mellow standards and trebles with attitude.
We recorded all the settings through the organ’s own Leslie speaker, in stereo, which gives a warm and pleasing colour to the sound. Gospel Drawbars has 22 recorded settings and 955 stereo wav samples in total, recorded at 24bits and 44.1 Sample rate.
You get 22 programs for NI Kontakt 2 and Logic EXS24. The NI Kontakt 3-5 scripted version has 22 bonus presets to start with for your own tweakings. The total size of the library uncompressed is 1.10 GB.
Gospel Drawbars costs $69 USD (download). All formats are included when you buy Gospel Drawbars. Full version of Kontakt is required.
Propellerhead has announced the release of Rotor, a rotary speaker Rack Extension for Reason.
Rotor comes complete with an included organ instrument for Reason’s Combinator, as well as a set of expertly crafted Rotor patches designed for guitar, drums, vocals and keys.
Meticulously modeled on the Leslie 122 speaker, Rotor brings its trademark vintage soul to the Reason rack, making authentic organ sounds and old-school guitar tones instantly accessible to Reason users.
Rotor carefully emulates all aspects of a rotary speaker, down to the independent rotation and acceleration of the horn and drum, and has settings for mic distance and rotation speed. Yet Rotor also takes the classic rotary speaker design into the future, with two flavors of built-in preamp distortion, control over the rotation doppler effect, the horn’s length and acceleration speed as well as CV output of the rotation, for syncing other Reason devices to Rotor’s speed and acceleration.
Extremely authentic emulation of a Leslie speaker.
Behaves just like the original. The horn part of the sound ramps up and down faster than the Drum part of the sound due to the inertia.
Looking for great tone? Just turn it on. Rotor turns simple synthesized organs into amazingly accurate organ sounds, makes guitars sound interesting, and makes vocals wide and 60’s flavored.
Fully integrated with the Reason rack. Sync other Reason devices to Rotor’s rotation speed through CV on the back.
Challenges the physical restrictions of a rotary speaker. The parameters go beyond the real world with horns twice the size and helicopter-like rotation speeds of up to 13.6hz. Just reach for the trim knobs!
Includes an organ instrument for Reason’s Combinator, and a great set of Rotor and Combinator patches for guitar, vocals, keys and drums.
Rotor is available to purchase for $49 USD / €39 EUR. Reason and Reason Essentials users can download a free, fully functional trial version for 30 days to try Rotor in their music.
