The Rotary Speed Control is an effect designed to emulate a rotary speaker device. Such a device became very popular for use with an American tonewheel organ around the early 1940s. The original intent of such a speaker device was to create an amplification system for the American tonewheel organ so that it had a better emulation of a theater organ or pipe organ.
Effects are an important audio tool to add specific nuances to the sound of any instrument. The YC DISTORTION and REVERB effects allow for a wide scope of expression with simple and easy to use controls.
