DLS RotoSim™ tweaking

i am thoroughly blown away at the moment... everyone getting one of these, you HAVE to understand something, 1st & foremost; YOU NEED TO POP HER OPEN & TWEAK!!! they don't come out of the box tuned. YOU have to do it. in all fairness to dave, he's setting these up VERY conservatively, & they don't shine the way they can. so, 1st up, you need to turn up the mix trimmer on the left, & all the way up. this will allow you to back off on the rotor levels on top of the unit to, say, 12-1:00. from there, you can add and subtract what you need for your particular setup. it gives you a LOT more play. 2nd, turn that bass rotor lag down, baby, as LOW as she'll go, cap'n, until she can't take it no more! lastly, if you're gonna use output a (i do, so far), you'll wanna turn the effect response trimmer fully ccw. if you use output b, then cw. output b is throbbier, particularly in the bottom end, so it can use the the brightness gained when you add more swirl, whereas the a output does well with the added throb you get by turning it ccw.

i think you'll find the overdrive to be extremely useful. it adds warmth to the top end without muddying up the mids or bottom. it is very transparent, & rightly so. if you wanna use an overdrive for a more driven, higher gain sound, use an overdrive. in fact, the roto's od blends REALLY well with other od's & distortions. and it does NOT change the tone/eq of your sound, like the option5 does. i should have some clips up at dls' site by next week, & you guys are gonna be quite impressed at how good i can get this thing to sound. since i last had the proto, dave has done some further tweaking, & the payoff is HUGE!!! but i know this box better than those who are hearing it for the 1st time. if i can tweak this thing into a heavenly warble, SO CAN YOU! i'm tellin' ya, when you hear me play badge or doin' that scrapyard thing with the roto' & a barber ddss, you are gonna FREAK! it is SPOT ON!!! :cool:

Thanks Muddy for the input. I will have to try this as I am a little disapointed with the sound so far. More chorusey than rotary, so I hope this will help. Thanks again.

Hey muddy,
if you make some clips, it might be useful to do before and after the mix and response knobs are adjusted.....

I know Dave is going to start shipping the next batch with the blend up higher or even maxed , then if people want less or thinner they can do that.......

I don't have any way to record clips but I have to give this pedal my heary endorsement. It came yesterday and it sounds amazing. I think the slow speed will push my chorus (Analogman Clone Chorus - a great one) off the board. And the fast speed is so much fun to play with...

FWIW I set the trimpots according to muddy's post and it does give the pedal a more intense sound (that you can dial back if you want). I've yet to try it with two amps.

awright, here are just a few. the rest will be up at dls' site, along with these (or some of). btw, i wound up setting the fx response back towards the middle. also, i've been using an exp pedal, which changes the sound quite a bit. makes you play it with a bit more feel, too, plus you can brake it to a full stop. TRY IT!!! here:

Just saw Michael Landau with Robben Ford tonight at the Baked Potato in L.A. and Landau was using one of these. I gatta have one. Is there a "best place" to buy one online?
