Classic Leslie tones in a compact box!

They did it! Neo Instruments squeezed their highly acclaimed Ventilator technology into a standard size pedal enclosure.

But, while they cut down on size, they didn't cut corners on sound quality!

Neo even added a new circuit! A new analog Blend knob provides latency-free mixing-in of the dry signal.

The micro Vent comes in 2 versions: the micro Vent 122 and the micro Vent 16.

What's the difference? The micro Vent 122 simulates a Leslie 122, while the micro Vent 16 offers a newly designed Vibratone emulation.

The micro Vent raises the bar for compact rotary effects pedals and truly delivers the best sounding, best-in-class rotary emulation!

micro Vent 16: Classic Vibratone magic!

The micro Vent 16 simulates the classic guitar Leslie with a 10" speaker into a single drum rotor.

Yes, we're talking about the vertically suspended magic of the Fender Vibratone!

The algorithm simulates capturing the Vibratone with one mic. The distance from the cabinet is variable.

Compared to the micro Vent 122, the micro Vent 16 sounds less complex and  dominant: perfect for rhythm work and for giving lead tones a finishing touch!

Switch Modes.

The micro Vent's Bypass switch offers a lot more than you'd think!

Use it to switch the effect on and off or select between the two speeds.

Various different modes determine if switching is done momentarily or latching.

You can also use the Bypass switch to select speeds exclusively, leaving the effect on all the time.

This comes in handy when the unit is used together with switching loopers: inspiring highly creative performances.

Two Speeds.

The micro Vent has two adjustable speeds.

Controllable via a pot, Speed 1 ranges continuously from slow to fast, while Speed 2 is selected via a 3-way switch (Slow, Fast, and Stop).

There are special switch modes that allow flexible switching (for instance, from slow to fast, fast to slow, and more).

The creative combinations on tap are mind-bending!

New Analog Blend knob!

David Gilmour and Stevie Ray Vaughan achieved their distinctive sounds by miking rotary speaker cabinets and guitar amps and blending them together.

To nail this effect with a single amp, micro Vent features a blend circuit that allows mixing of the dry and wet signals for the classic rotary sound we all crave!
