Here's What Neo Say About the Micro Vent
We did it! We squeezed our highly acclaimed Ventilator technology into a standard size stompbox enclosure. But while we cut corners in size, we didn't cut corners in sound quality. The micro Vents feature an equally powerful DSP as its bigger brothers, Ventilator II and mini Vent II. We even added a new circuit - an analog blend - providing latency free mixing-in of the dry signal.
The micro Vent comes in two versions: the black micro Vent 122 and the white micro Vent 16. But what's the difference besides color? You guessed it – the micro Vent 122 simulates a Leslie 122, deriving its algorithm from the famous Ventilator II, while the micro Vent 16 offers a newly designed simulation of a Vibratone guitar Leslie. The micro VENT raises the bar for compact rotary effects pedals and delivers the best sounding, best-in-class rotary emulation.
micro Vent 122
Just like its brothers Ventilator II and mini Vent II, the micro Vent 122 is modeled after the Leslie 122 rotary speaker. The algorithm simulates the classic micing technique with one mic for the horn and one mic for the drum rotor. The distance of both mics can be varied with the DISTANCE pot. Just like the monstrous original, the micro Vent 122 sounds rich and complex with deep movement and modulation. Perfect for rotary sounds that shall stand out.
The micro Vent´s BYPASS switch offers a lot more than you'd think. Use it to switch the effect on and off or select between the two speeds. Various different modes determine if switching is done momentarily or latching. You can also use the BYPASS switch to select speeds exclusively, leaving the effect on all the time. This comes in handy when the unit is used together with switching loopers, inspiring highly creative performances.
The micro Vent has two adjustable speeds. Speed 1 is controlled with a pot and ranges continuously from Slow to Fast, providing intermediate speeds as well; Speed 2 is selected via a 3-way switch featuring the standard speeds – Slow, Fast and Stop. Special SWITCH MODES provide flexible switching, e.g. from Slow to Fast, Fast to Slow, Slow to Stop, Stop to Fast, etc. The combinations are almost limitless.The RAMP parameter determines acceleration and deceleration between the two speeds. You will never get tired of listening to the rotors spooling up and down, recreating the sounds that made the originals so glorious.
The micro Vent's compact super sturdy housing hosts an insanely powerful SHARC DSP with the same processing power as the one found in the Ventilator II. For the analog circuitry only the best components were chosen to ensure a no-compromise sound that will satisfy you.
Power requirements are 9V DC with standard negative polarity, so the micro Vent integrates easily in larger pedalboards with a central PSU.
Pros like Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour and many more got their distinct sound on recordings and on stage with a simple trick: they mixed the rotary speaker and guitar amp signals together. To achieve a similar effect with only one amp, the micro Vent features an analog BLEND circuit, providing an uncolored and latency free mixing-in of the dry signal for that classic rotary sound we all know and love.
