DigiTech Ventura Vibe Rotary Vibrato box opened to try and then stored, so basically like new old stock original box pot protector and papers. The original Shin-ei Uni-Vibe was intended as a rotary speaker simulator, thus, a whole new effect category was born by accident. This digital unit offers two variants on the Uni-Vibe sound – vintage and modern – plus a fresh stab at the Leslie thing. It has stereo outputs!  Other features that recall dedicated rotary sims such as the wondrous Neo Ventilator: onboard overdrive and a speed-ramping feature accessed by holding your foot down on the footswitch. Other than that, you get controls for speed, depth, mix and tone. In vintage mode with the other dials at halfway. It’s vintage alright – like an asymmetrical phaser with a deeply liquid quality. Pushing the mix past halfway reduces the tonal sweep, emphasising the pitch-changing vibrato aspect; the other controls behave as you’d expect, offering a wide range of sounds.  Dialling in some drive thickens things up in a nicely musical way, ala Jimi’s Uni-Vibe sound from Woodstock. Modern setting,  more bright and chorus-like sound, quite flange-y at low speeds, and with even-more-pronounced pitch wobble when you crank the depth and mix knobs. Rotary has a more gentle, almost mid-scooped voice, and here’s where the tone control might be useful for bringing out the top end. The effect itself is pretty good clean and gets more interesting when you push the drive – it really has that Leslie grind, and will get you very, very close to the Badge sound.  The stereo effect works well in all three modes, and so does the ramping feature: keep your foot on the switch and the modulation will wind up quickly to maximum speed, then slow down as soon as you lift off. this pedal really is a lot of fun.
