I’ve completed my initial review of the new Mini Vent from Neo Instruments. For the review, I connected the Mini Vent to my 1954 Hammond C2. I will do another video soon with the Mini Vent connected to the SK2 and/or XK3.
I’m very impressed with unit. A full written review will also come soon.
I hope you enjoy the video.
10/8/2013 Addendum: In the video I state that the difference between the Mini Vent for organ and the regular Mini Vent (voiced for guitar) is that the guitar Mini Vent lacks the amp simulation. This is incorrect. From Guido Kirsch at Neo Instruments:
Although seems logical and I had planned it this way, Gary Gand convinced me that for lead playing the cab sim is essential and he absolutely wanted it. So the 2 programmable parametersi n the guitar Mini Vent are Cab Sim on/off and Drive Intensity. Other than that the differences are in the fixed Speed / Acceleration and Balance settings.
So there you have it. I also received permission to post some of the new features of the upcoming Ventilator II pedal, which you can read in the comments below. The features I list are the ones which will definitely be in the pedal. Guido has a list of others he is considering but didn’t want me to publish as they may change.
