Nothing sounds as good as a real rotor

guewie, 16.01.2017
In the meantime there are quite good digital Leslie effects, whether as an external version or built-in in all modern organ keyboards or consoles. I use for example the Neo Ventilator II at my Hammond xk-1c at live gigs directly over the PA. It simulates an old Leslie 122, and that sounds really good. In addition, the device saves the acceptance with microphones.

But what still makes the Leslies with real rotors still much better, is the fast adjustment (tremolo), especially if you run this longer. And this is also the case with the 2101 MKII. At home I use the device only.
Also the digitally simulated rotation in the bass range sounds good. The volume is sufficient in the home and small rooms.
And: you can connect everything you have with devices. There are also connectors (inputs and outputs) beside 11- and 8-pole Leslie connectors. And all this with or without Leslie effect.
Almost all parameters of the rotors can be adjusted and stored according to their taste and even partially via Midi. The Leslie is also easy to transport.
The processing is immaculate.
Unfortunately there is, as already mentioned in another review, a disadvantage: the very high price.

Almost as before ... almost

02.11.2016
The Hammond Leslie 2101 MkII is played by me with a Hammond XK-1c. So there are two newcomers with an old name. Both products have made it hard for me because I have played for many years - even live - with an old Hammond L-100 and a Leslie 122.

The XK-1c offers a very authentic Hammond sound, also the built-in Leslie would be acceptable; But as a purist I could only live badly. Therefore now for much money the 2101 MkII.
The Leslie offers enough volume for the Proberaum, even if a rock band rebs. The pre-set speeds low / fast as well as starting and braking speed fit well, but can be modified as required. Sound in the high range prima!
The pretend bass drum makes its thing good; Leslie-Feeling is also here. But - due to the size, the bass speakers are undersized. When you get some gas, the tugging starts - but not a tube but a loudspeaker. This must be compensated with an external box, but here, of course, nothing rotates.

Conclusion: An absolutely great alternative for big old Leslies, as long as one does not have to be too loud. Because of the bass loudspeakers it is just in the Proberaum still; Live can not be too loud. You have to go over the PA and can blow-dry only in small clubs.

The only downside: monopolists can call at any price, and that makes Hammond-Suzuki-Leslie here with great enthusiasm!
