Pigtronix Rototron is an all-new rotary speaker simulator effect that achieves unsurpassed 3D realism in a compact, easy-to-use pedal. Designed by effects gurus Howard Davis and David Koltai, the Pigtronix Rototron accurately recreates the complex acoustic phenomenon of the legendary dual-rotor 122 and 147 Leslie cabinets as used by Peter Frampton, Danny Gatton, the Beatles and many others.

Independent Slow and Fast speed controls with adjustable ramp time allow musicians to enjoy the mesmerizing sound of speeding up and slowing down an actual rotary cabinet. A remotely switchable Brake function completes the authentic experience, while independent expression pedal jacks for the low and high rotors enable some entirely new variations on psychedelic bliss, without the back-breaking hassle.
The Rototron utilizes a Quadrature LFO to drive simultaneous frequency modulation, phase shifting, tremolo, bucket brigade-based chorusing. These voices have been meticulously combined using a Linkwitz-Riley crossover design to generate a three-dimensional acoustic hologram. The analog circuitry used within the Rototron sounds warmer, fatter and feels far more realistic than the digital rotary effects currently available from other companies. Line-level headroom and full-stereo i/o complete this utterly hypnotic rotary simulator from Pigtronix.
