It’s close on this one. At first listen, the tone seems pretty authentic, but using it live, I found it brittle and shrill. The Leslie effect leaves a lot to be desired, and no adjustment of the rotor speeds doesn’t help the case for it, either. Biggest beef? Assigning a switch to the rotary allows for fast and off. It should default to slow and fast, of course. As a big fan of good free plugins, I had hopes for it, as so many seem to review it joyously. I can’t see it finding a place in my toolkit.
