The Rotovibe was originally supposed to emulate the effect of a rotating speaker but has some interesting tones all of its own, from what I hear.  I don't think there is any one effect that is identical to the Rotovibe but you can get much of what it does from several effects on the Pod.

Depending on what you want:  the Rotary Drum (under Modulation) is an emulation of a Leslie.  The only nuisance is that it only allows you to set the speed as fast or slow.

Many of the other effects should be achieveable by using one of the phasers or the Univibe and assigning the expression pedal to the speed parameter.  You could also try running both a phaser and a vibrato simultaneously and assigning to the expression pedal to speed on both effects.  You could then use the expression pedal to modify the speed of the effect and use the depth controls to modify the intensity.

Listening to demo's of the Rotovibe:  I hear a strong component of the original dry signal mixed in with the effected signal.   I would suggest that you use the mix control for each effect to mix some of the dry signal back in with the effected signal.  Try somewhere around 60%.


El Rotovibe originalmente iba a emular el efecto de un altavoz giratorio, pero tiene algunos tonos interesantes de todos los suyos, de lo que oigo. Yo no creo que haya ningún efecto que es idéntica a la Rotovibe pero usted puede conseguir mucho más de lo que lo hace desde varios efectos sobre el Pod.

Dependiendo de lo que queremos: el tambor giratorio (bajo Modulation) es una simulación de un Leslie. La única molestia es que sólo le permite ajustar la velocidad tan rápido o lento.

Muchos de los otros efectos debe ser alcanzable mediante el uso de uno de los sincronizadores o Univibe la asignación y el pedal de expresión para el parámetro de velocidad. También puede intentar ejecutar tanto un phaser y vibrato a la vez y asignar al pedal de expresión para la velocidad en ambos efectos. A continuación, podría usar el pedal de expresión para modificar la velocidad del efecto y utilizar los controles de profundidad para modificar la intensidad.

Escuchar demo del Rotovibe: He oído un fuerte componente de la señal original seco mezclado con la señal procesada. Te sugiero que utilice el control de mezcla para cada efecto a mezclar un poco de la parte posterior de la señal seca con la señal procesada. Prueba en torno al 60%.

Thank you for your answer!
5 days ago I went to the concert of Black Label Society and Slash. I really like the sound of Zakk. I've seen videos on youtube about his set up, he uses a Phase 90, a Chorus, an Overdrive, the pod allows me to emulate those pedals, but the most important is the pedal Dunlop Rotovibe ..
What I saw that caught my attention was that he activated the pedal, but he did not move the expression pedal, leaving him still, and while playing a solo or a riff sounded kind of auto wah. That's the sound I want from this pedal.

rotary speaker sim, chorus should work. Now pertaining to what he said about speeding up the rotary sim, if you go into your hd edit you can set it up to where the tap tempo controls the speed, though not the expression

So it does!  Thanks for that ... very useful and one to play with.  You know, off the top of my head I cannot think of another FX Parameter that is accessible from HD Edit only.  I hardly ever use HD Edit so this is interesting to me.

On the 'auto wah' effect ... I don't  think that the Rotovibe pedal does that.  I guess a wide phase tone might sound like a wah.  If you want an Auto Wah type effect that take a look at Tron Up and Tron Down in the filters.


Así lo hace! Gracias por eso ... muy útil y uno para jugar. Ya sabes, la parte superior de mi cabeza no puedo pensar en otro parámetro FX que es accesible desde HD Edición sólo. Yo casi nunca uso Edit HD así que esto es interesante para mí.

El efecto "auto wah" ... No creo que el pedal Rotovibe hace eso. Supongo que un tono de fase amplio podría sonar como un wah. Si quieres un efecto de tipo Wah automático que echar un vistazo a Tron Tron Up y Down en los filtros.
