    Sorry another leslie question[​IMG]....but...
    Is there any pedal out there that really nails the leslieguitar on the Stones fabulous "let it loose"? I´ve listened to a lot of soundfiles from different pedalmakers but i don´t think there is any (to my ears) that can cope this sound... all i hear is the SRV-sound...?
    I´m looking for suggestions!
    Thanks/Stefan

    I bought an analogman mini chorus to get that sound and it does fast leslie very well. slow leslie not so much but fast, it is excellent.

    Man, I love that song and would be interested to see what people suggest here. Have you looked into the Option 5 Destination Rotation? That seems to be a very popular choice.

    Hi there!
    Yes i have looked at destination rotation (at their homepage) but the samples they provide is all about SRV wich is cool but not what i want...people seems to like that pedal but i can´t afford to take a risk...
    Also the analogman bi-chorus looks to be a cool pedal but doesn´t provide the soundsamples that i want... This pedal IS interesting though since it provide fast leslie...I guess i´m looking for a lush, fast leslie thats not so "phasey"...
    I´ve also heard the DLS versions but i don´t think they really nail what i want (i´m picky)[​IMG]
    Would be interesting to find out what the stones used for a kind of leslie on that song...If anybody knows that it would be really helpful...i might go for the "real" deal after all...
    /Stefan

    My Retrosonic Chorus Ensemble's Vibrato side nails it - uncannily. I think any good vibrato pedal could get there. Analogman, maybe even Mojovibe?

    +1 for AnalogMan. The first time I set up a fast Leslie type sound with that, "Let It Loose" was the song I instantly played...the sound just begged me to!

    Could you share your Let It Loose setting for the Analog Man Chorus (o'clock style please).

    Hmmm, I'd have to go from memory here, but I would think it's pretty obvious since there are only two knobs... speed is at 4 o'clock or so, but it's a pretty tight sweetspot near but not quite at the end of the travel of the pot. I usually like to set the pseudo-Leslie sounds not quite at the fastest setting I can get away with. Sounds a little thicker and more interesting that way, I think.
    Depth is at 1 o'clock.

    How about the Boss RE-20? I had one for a bit and it did do some pretty cool Leslie sounds....

    I play that tune live and use a Fulltone Mini Dejavibe, which is great because you can adjust the rate of the warble, which is handy when your drummer speeds the tune up half way through!

    Get the Option 5 Destination Single. It nails the Fender Vibratone sound.

    From what I remember, the Option 5 Destination Rotation will definitely suffice for 'Let it Loose' - not a problem at all.

    It's a great pedal only to be improved by adding ramping* (see post below for clarification). I wish I still had it so I could dial it in and help you out with settings.

    :( sorry!!!

    My Mini-Deja vibe gets close. I can also get that with my MicroVibe. I use a touch of hall reverb too.

    You cannot set the ramping speed but it does ramp up and down at it's preset speed when you switch between the fast and slow settings (both of which can be controlled) I do wish I could slow the fast speed down just a bit and perhaps get the slow speed just a little faster as well but those are issues that I can easily deal with and I think my Option 5 will be around for a long time.
