Front Panel
FAST ROTOR SPEED: Controls
the speed of the rotors in FAST
speed.
MIC DISTANCE: Varies the
distance of the stereo mics from
the horn rotor and the single
mic on the woofer rotor. Turn
towards minimum for a more
pronounced, aggressive horn
sound with mics up close. Turn
towards maximum for more
ambience. The effect will be
most audible with the horn rotor.
PREAMP DRIVE: Controls the
drive of the rotary cabinet’s
tube preamp and phase inverter
stages. Turn up for a more
overdriven cab sound.

Secondary Functions
CAB DIRECTION: Changes the
position of the cabinet relative to
the microphones. In the FRONT
orientation (counterclockwise)
the sound travels through the
slats in the wood cabinet. In the
REAR orientation (clockwise),
the the cabinet is open for a
different sound. The default
position is REAR.
ACCELERATION: Controls
how quickly the rotors
transition from Fast to Slow
and from Slow to Fast speed.
The rotors will accelerate
independently. The low
frequency rotor accelerates
more slowly just like an actual
rotating speaker system.

FAVORITE
OR
Connect a Favorite Switch to save
your favorite setting or to toggle slow/
fast speeds remotely. To use a Favorite
switch, see page 5 for a detailed
explanation of set up.
Connect a standard TRS expression
pedal for continuous control over
any selectable knob parameter. To
select the knob controlled by the
expression pedal, hold the SLOW/
FAST footswitch during power up.
The first knob turned is then then
assigned to the expression pedal.
The maximum position the knob is
turned up to becomes the expression
pedal “toe down” maximum value.
Moving the pedal to the “heel
down” position activates the rotor
brake when the expression pedal is
assigned to control speed.

Power up settings
EXP INPUT ASSIGN: Assigns
the EXP pedal input jack to
use an expression pedal or a
Favorite switch. While holding
both footswitches at power up,
turn FAST ROTOR SPEED fully
counterclockwise for use with an
expression pedal. Turn knob fully
clockwise for use with a Favorite
Switch to save a favorite setting.
Turn knob to the middle position
to use a Favorite switch to toggle
between FAST and SLOW rotor
speeds.
CaB FILTER: Tailors the cabinet
filter for best use either in front
of a guitar amplifier or a full
range speaker system. While
holding both footswitches at
power up, turn MIC DISTANCE
fully counterclockwise for use
with a GUITAR AMP. Turn MIC
DISTANCE fully clockwise for
use with a FULL RANGE speaker
system, e.g. studio monitors.
Full range mode is also useful
for direct recording.

BI-AMP: While holding both
footswitches at power up, turn

Bi-Amp OFF (stereo mode),
turn PREAMP DRIVE fully
