The Pigtronix Rototron is an all analog rotary speaker effect that combines frequency modulation, phase shifting, tremolo, bucket brigade-based chorusing three-way Linkwitz-Riley crossover in a compact, easy to use pedal.Many companies have attempted to create convincing rotary speaker simulators using various electronic techniques. The obscure, German-made Dynacord CLS–222 rack unit (famously used by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour on the Division Bell tour) has been the closest anyone ever came to sounding like the "real thing"... until now.
Designed by Howard Davis and David Koltai, the Pigtronix Rototron accurately recreates the complex acoustic phenomenon of the legendary dual rotor 122 and 147 cabinets as used by Peter Frampton, Danny Gatton, the Beatles and many more. The analog design approach 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 input and output options make the Rototron ideally suited to keyboardists as well as guitarists who use a stereo setup live or in studio.
Independent Slow and Fast speed controls with adjustable ramp time allows musicians to achieve the mesmerizing sound of speeding up and slowing down an actual rotary cabinet. A remotely switchable Brake option completes the authentic experience to provide rotary bliss on stage without the back breaking hassle. Separate expression pedal jacks for the low and high rotors enable some entirely new variations on the classic rotary sound. Internally switchable input summing and mid-range panning options round out this incredibly flexible, easy to use and hypnotic sounding analog rotary simulator from Pigtronix.

Comments about Pigtronix Rototron Rotary Speaker Emulation Guitar Effects Pedal:
Pigtronix strikes again! The Rototron is hands down the most realistic rotary speaker pedal simulator ever made period.
easy to use and operate the pedal has two footswitch buttons for fast and slow speed toggle and a pedal on off switch.
you can set the virtual rotor speeds and even the rate at which they will accelerate into swirly bliss. The depth knob adds in a bucket brigade style chorus for phenomenal texture and realism.
oh yea and you can run it stereo! plenty of expression pedal options for control of the high and low rotors and foot brake.
This pedal is not just for guitar players. Keyboardists and bass players alike will find a never ending amount uses for this pedal who's time has certainly come! Handmade on Long Island USA, the pedal has outstanding construction and includes the power supply.
