Neo Instruments: mini VENT
This is a new demo of the mighty mini VENT which I covered during its prototype stage a couple of months ago. This new demo shows and/or mentions the improvements to the already great mini VENT. Those improvements include: tweaks to the ramp and rotor speeds; programmable drive, distance and cabinet simulation within each of the presets (A & B); the ability to slow the rotor to a dead stop and the internal low/high gain jumper switch.
The mini VENT is the smaller but no less capable version of the Ventilator rotary cabinet simulator and is designed primarily for guitarists. I can say unreservedly that it is the best and most authentic pedal of its type that I have yet tried.
During this video I mention that the mini VENT is “..in the shops now.” If it’s not it soon will be!
