'There are some decent rotary speaker plug-ins, and good hardware units too, but I haven’t heard anything that sounds this good. Team these pedals with a really good tone-wheel organ emulation and you get very close to enjoying all the benefits of the real thing without any of the inconvenience. '
'It’s an incredibly convincing and authentic simulation. The simulation of speaker acceleration and deceleration when you switch from slow settings to fast is excellent. It’s also exceedingly responsive to dynamics, whether it comes from your picking technique or a fuzz placed before the Mini Vent. Another testament to the richness of the Mini Vent is how it can make a cheap amp sound, well, expensive.'
