Neo Instruments Micro Vent 16

We did it! We squeezed our highly acclaimed Ventilator technology into a standard size stompbox enclosure. But while we cut corners in size, we didn't cut corners in sound quality. The micro Vents feature an equally powerful DSP as its bigger brothers, Ventilator II and mini Vent II. We even added a new circuit - an analog blend - providing latency-free mixing-in of the dry signal.

The micro Vent comes in two versions: the black micro Vent 122 and the white micro Vent 16. But what's the difference besides color? You guessed it – the micro Vent 122 simulates a Leslie 122, deriving its algorithm from the famous Ventilator II, while the micro Vent 16 offers a newly designed simulation of a Vibratone guitar Leslie. The micro VENT raises the bar for compact rotary effects pedals and delivers the best sounding, best-in-class rotary emulation.

The micro Vent 16 simulates the classic guitar leslie with a 10 inch speaker into a single drum rotor. Yes, we are talking about the vertically suspended magic of the Fender Vibratone. The algorithm simulates capturing the Vibratone with one mic and the distance from the cabinet is variable. Compared to the micro Vent 122, the micro Vent 16 sounds less complex and dominant. It is perfect for rhythm work and for giving lead tones the final touch.
