          Oversized stomp box, dual rotors, knobs for volume, distortion,
          speed, acceleration, mic distance and spread, for foot switches
          for distortion, speed, stop, and bypass.

     Rolls Rotorhorn
          Single rack space, limited MIDI control

     Voce SPIN
          Half rack space analog effect, MIDI control, dual rotor, many
          pre-sets, knobs for volume, balance, overdrive, MIDI channel, and
          preset select.

     Motion Sound PRO-3
          This "simulator" may belong in a separate category from other
          Leslie simulators listed here, which use electronic signal
          processing to simulate the Leslie effect. The PRO-3 uses an actual
          rotating treble horn and a titanium driver in tandem with a
          stereo/mono bass rotor simulation signal output through 1/4" front
          panel jacks. The player feeds an organ signal to PRO-3's 1/4" mono
          input, and routes the PRO-3 low frequency output signal to a
          keyboard amplifier. The PRO-3's rotating horn characteristics are
          modeled on the Leslie 147.

          The PRO-3 dimensions are 6.5" x 20" x 16.5" and it weighs 26 Lbs.
          The front panel is vertically centered on the left third of the
          unit front. Two rails run along the bottom from front to back and
          are designed to straddle the handle of a keyboard amp. The horn
          compartment is vented so that about 60% of the sound comes through
          the front and 40% through the rear and sides, simulating a 147
          horn with the back off and turned around. The horn amplifier is 30
          watts RMS with .3% distortion, and is very loud.

                              - Out Of Production -

     Avalanche Effects Brianizer
          Stomp box, dual rotor, adjustable speed and accel/decel rates,
          leslie/on/off, studio/stage settings

     Dynacord CLS 222
          Single rack space analog effect, dual rotors out of production
          1993

     Multivox LD-2 (a.k.a. Little David)
          One of the first Leslie simulators, packaged as a 10" high replica
          of a 122, non-mechanical, made briefly in the 1970's.
