Excellent sound, but needs better interfacing
offog 06.07.2021
I bought this in 2020 so I could play my Hammond C3 during lockdown without annoying my neighbours too much. I normally use a Leslie 122XB or a Leslie 2101.

Physically it's a nice solid metal box with conveniently-sized controls and pedals. I usually have it sitting on the bench next to me so I can get at the overdrive control while playing.

The sound of the emulation is excellent - it didn't take very much tweaking to match the speed dynamics of my 122XB, and the overdrive and blend controls give a decent range of sounds. In my home environment I think it sounds better than micing up either of the real Leslies - and it's certainly a lot less hassle.

Connecting up a real halfmoon switch is no problem - it's not obvious from the manual, but the "switch 2" mode works with a slow-stop-fast switch.

Feeding audio in from the organ at the right level was more difficult. You really do need to adjust it to just below the point where the overload LED lights for it to sound good - I ended up building an external attenuator to get the level from the organ down far enough. So wishlist item 1: the Vent really should have an input attenuator control (a preset pot on the back would be fine).

The output is a pair of unbalanced jacks. This is OK for a guitar pedal but you should budget for a stereo DI box if you need to run the output over anything but the shortest of cable runs. Wishlist item 2: balanced outputs.

Wishlist item 3 is that it'd be awfully nice to have some basic reverb built in. With the rotors stopped, the overdrive wound up a bit and a bit of external reverb added, it does a good PR40-style jazz sound; if there's DSP space this could be built in.

Overall this wasn't a cheap device, but I've been pretty happy with it and I think it's fair value for money. If you're using it with a digital organ or as a guitar effect then you'll probably be very happy with it; for use with a real organ it's a bit more effort to set up but does work well.

Great Leslie sound
Martin3471 05.08.2014
Very impressed with the sound, in mono or stereo. I am using with a Hammond XB1, and the results sound very realistically like a Hammond + Leslie. The XB1 has a built-in Leslie simulator, but its effect is very weak in comparison. I had been using the XB1 with a MotionSound Pro3, which has a good sound itself, but the Neo Ventilator II is much closer to the Leslie sound. A real rotating speaker like the Pro3's horn has a richer spatial effect when you're next to it, but for mic'ed use, there's no advantage (and the Pro 3 only has a mono mic whereas the Ventilator simulates a stereo mic on the rotating horn.)

The Ventilator II sound is a combination of effects: rotating speaker effect, Leslie tone (frequency response of Leslie amp/cabinet) and Leslie amp overdrive. All of these are done well, and the combination is very convincing.

The Ventilator II provides a lot of control over the sound; the set of controls seems well thought out, and the ranges of adjustment are sensible. The second set of functions is a bit confusing at first - it means that the knob position may not always represent the actual setting. (E.g. if you moved to the second set of functions, changed the knob position for the second function, and then return to the main set of functions. The unit does the right thing, as it retains the setting you previously had for the main function of the knob, but now the knob is in a different position from that.) In practice the second set is unlikely to be changed regularly, so this slightly confusing behavior is unlikely to be a problem beyond the initial set up.

The unit has a sturdy steel case, and feels like it should last well. The "wall wart" power supply with plastic case could be a potential weak point. At least this comes with various pins to suit different countries.

Ultimate Rotary Pedal
gringopig 23.05.2020
I had to send the first one back as it was very hissy in the left channel in stereo. Quiet in mono. Thomann did a great job in sending me a replacement so kudos to them for a great job.
I'm using it with a guitar and with the first flat response selected.
The pedal sounds fantastic and I have the Wampler Terraform as a comparison for rotary emulation and the Vent II makes it sound bad in comparison. Not to say the Terraform is not good but a testament to how addictive the Vent II is. It really is a pedal I could use on the floor all the time and I tend to get bored with pedals and spend ages mucking about with them until I give up and pack them away and go straight into the amp. The Vent II however is not the same. It doesn't 'feel' like a pedal. The sound coming from the amp sounds like it comes from the amp! If you know what I mean :-)

An edit: I sold this as it was just too noisy to use in stereo. The replacement was no better in retrospect but all credit to Thomann - their return procedure was fantastic. I sold it and bought a Strymon instead. Much better in stereo. The Vent sounds better in mono.
