DLS Effects Unveils the RotoSPIN

Rotating speaker product offers a blend of doppler, swirl, depth, chew, and grind effects.

Rochester, NY (June 19, 2015) -- DLS Effects audio engineers turned on the afterburners for the RotoSPIN! This ultra real rotating speaker product offers the right blend of Doppler™, Swirl, Depth, Chew and Grind. The RotoSPIN allows the musician to dial in multiple Rotary Speaker cabinet sounds and Mic distances using a Tweeter Intensity, Bass Rotor Level, and switchable Overdrive section!

Unlike others, the RotoSPINkeeps your original instrument tone in tact! Musicians asked for versatility, smaller, lighter, rugged, and lower cost, and DLS Effects delivered!

Features:

  • Tweeter Intensity and Bass Rotor Level: sets the horn rotation intensities, depth, Doppler™ amount, cabinet style, and emulated microphone distance.
  • Fast and Slow knobs: sets the fast and slow rotation speeds.
  • Ramp: adjusts the time to change between the Fast and Slow speeds.
  • Switchable Overdrive section: adds grind, edge and OD clipping like the old rotary tube amps.
  • Use OutA (thicker), OUTB (brighter), or both for spacious (((DLS Stereo™)))
  • 9vdc power input using any polarity (USA transformer included)
  • Small size and light weight: 3.7” x 4.7” x 1.7”H, and only weights 1.6 lbs

If you want to cop those guitar rotary speaker sounds used by artists like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Cream, Tesla, SRV, Tom Petty, Danny Gatton, and many more, this effect is for you!

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
