Stockholm, Sweden (February 25, 2013)—Propellerhead has released Rotor, a rotary speaker Rack Extension for Reason, modeled on the Leslie 122 speaker.
Aiming to help create authentic organ sounds and old-school guitar tones, Rotor emulates elements of a rotary speaker, including independent rotation and acceleration of the horn and drum, and has settings for mic distance and rotation speed. Rotor also includes two flavors of built-in preamp distortion, control over the rotation doppler effect, the horn's length and acceleration speed, and CV output of the rotation, for syncing other Reason devices to Rotor’s speed and acceleration.
Rotor comes with an included organ instrument for Reason's Combinator, as well as a set of Rotor patches designed for guitar, drums, vocals and keys.
Rotor is available in the Propellerhead Shop for USD $49. Reason and Reason Essentials users can download a free, fully functional trial version for 30 days
