Device Details


Name | Version: Rotary Speaker 1.0
Author: OspreyInstruments
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: This is a rotary speaker emulator that utilizes IRs captured from my Leslie 760 (Heil PR30 mics and UA 4-710d tube preamp).

The default parameters are in the "realistic" territory, so you should be able to use it out of the box, just toggling/automating the "Speed" control. This can easily be mapped to the modwheel of a keyboard using the "Expression Control" midi device in Ableton.

Of course, all of the parameters have a pretty healthy range of operation and wild and eclectic sounds can also be achieved.

This is part of a bigger project to capture all aspects of my tonewheel organ. The full Ableton "pack" of the Hammond L102 (includes the sampler instrument and all effects) is available for free at

(I can't host here due to size of library and filetype restrictions)

Looks cool, but it doesn't work on an Apple Silicon Mac...
Vibrato and spring fx are ok...
mmm. Sorry : actually the spring doesn't work too on my M1 machine...
But the vibrato is coool...
Thanks for checking it out Calagan! I'm sorry you were having trouble getting them to work on M1. I had my friend beta test them on his machine and I might have a work around. I made a Pack with the organ sample library as well, and that worked for him. I can't upload .alp files here though, so if you are interested, I shared it on Pianobook ( and my personal website too ( at the bottom of the page).

If its those 2 effects, its a problem with the convolution. Its either not including the external library or the IRs. I was having trouble exporting it correctly, maybe because I don't have the full Max MSP license. I think the pack / .alp should work though!
