Description: The virtual simulator of rare devices of rotation of speakers UVI Rotary 1.0.1 contains several models of original devices, as well as parameter controls for changing them. Free placement of microphones within the hemisphere is possible. There are separate parameters for the low frequency and high frequency radiators (including frequency range and acceleration and deceleration times). Simulation of open and closed cabinets, as well as preamp overload are supported. Presets included.
- Custom microphone placement (hemispherical)
- Intuitive macro controls (width, distance, skew) and independent click-drag microphone placement
- 3D real-time ray-traced early reflections, simulating up to third order
- Shape sounds naturally (metrics based on original horn / drum directivity measurements)
- Precise angular Doppler effect
- Realistic sound diffusion for open and closed box configurations
- Precise tone reproduction (measured horn / drum impulse responses)
- Amplifier Drive: faithful reproduction of even / odd harmonics
- Amplifier Pre-Emphasis control (compensates horn frequency response)
Originally invented in the 1940’s, rotary speaker cabinets imaginatively employ the Doppler effect by firing a woofer into a rotating drum and a tweeter into a rotating horn. Free download The results are much more harmonic than typical tremolo or vibrato effects, producing sounds ranging from rich and shimmering to gentle, dreamy and swirling. These novel speakers were quickly adopted by jazz organists, cemented by blues and rock legends such as Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Pink Floyd and The Beatles, and later the effect simulated by guitar pedal manufacturers.

The sound of UVI Rotary 1.0.1 cabinets comes from the combination, mixing and balancing of numerous components including cabinet, horn and drum speakers, motor, belt, amplifier and the box diffusion itself. Our goal was not only to accurately reproduce each working part but to give complete parametric control over its internal mechanism, allowing the creation of effects well beyond what was possible on the original units.
