Presonus Rotor is a rotary speaker emulation plug-in that simulates the sound of a tube-powered amplifier with independently rotating high-mid horns and a bass woofer, magically recreating a sound synonymous with gospel and 70s-era rock, and is part of the PreSonus Analog Effects Collection.

PreSonus’ Rotor plug-in excels at adding a sense of motion and unique tonal character to organ sounds, guitars, or anything you want to try. (Try it on vocals!) Each speaker's rotation can be set to a range of speeds, with realistic braking and acceleration effects when changing speeds. State Space Modeling technology provides authentic tube emulation for extra warmth and character.

Thanks to Presonus' state-of-the-art State Space Modeling technology, they are now able to model analog circuits on a per-component level. They can even model the specific non-linearity within these components, which results in even more realistic digital models of analog circuit behavior. This is particularly important for components such as transformers and vacuum tubes. Because of this, Rotor’s drive stage captures the character and personality of a classic tube amp, creating authentic character and tone.

Rotor is available stand-alone or as a part of the Analog Effects Collection–an amazing suite of five modulation, delay, distortion and dynamics effects available for the first time in VST3, AU and AAX format. The Analog Effects Collection includes five fan-favorite plug-ins previously available only in PreSonus’ award-winning digital audio workstation, Studio One. In addition to Rotor, you also get Analog Chorus, Analog Delay, Red Light Distortion and Tricomp. These plug-ins represent the pinnacle of PreSonus’ plug-in design, art, and craftsmanship. With State Space Modeling technology and a brand new look and feel, the Analog Effects Collection is the perfect complement to PreSonus’ acclaimed Ampire, Fat Channel and Fat Channel Collection add-ons, and a great addition to every plug-in library… and if you’re a PreSonus Sphere member, it’s already in your account.
