    Grand Orbiter sounds like a Leslie ?

    The grand orbiter isn't technically a vibe. It's a phase shifter. But it's certainly a fantastic effect with a lot of versatility.

    I have a flanger and chorus and reverb. A rotating speaker that can ramp up and down would be nice.

    EQD makes a nice Uni-Vibe type pedal, The Depths. Much more versatile than a typical vibe, and still does the chorus thing well. Mine isn't going anywhere.

    If you already have a chorus would the univibe part still be a must have ?

    That depends. If you wanted to play Bridge of Sighs a chorus would sound "not right".

    I haven't logged any time with the pedals mentioned. My Univibe pedal is a part of a FoxRox Capt Coconut which is one of the best sounding opto-cell based Univibe pedals I have ever heard. He has since made a standalone version known as the Aqua Vibe. It has an expression pedal jack for controlling the speed. Its center and width controls definetly expand the sonic palette for the Univbe. The FoxRix TZF 2 Flanger has a great ramp up feature. Dave Fox has made a career refining the basic components of Jimi's sound. Their pedals are a bit spendy, but they are extremely well made with the intent for them to last.

    The Sweet Sound Vibe pedals are also really good sounding. Their reputation is also well deserved as they were among the first to remake the Univibe in the mid 90's. Univibes are different sounding than a chorus or phaser. The optos just give a a more 3 D sound.

    As an owner of a Leslie 145, the Univibe comes closer to that sound than a chorus pedal does-neither of them really has the same effect as rotors whirring. Granted the original Boss CE-1 was an attempt to create a Leslie like sound. Most chorus pedals since don't come close to the CE-1 in this application. If you want the watery girth, the Univibe type pedal delivers the goods better than a chorus, flanger or phaser. If you want a Leslie sound, then why not go for a Dynacord CLS-222 or a Korg G-4. Both do a Leslie emulation better than a Univibe. Even the newer EH Leslie pedal sounds fairly convincing.

    Love my Sweet Sound Mojo Vibe. It does everything I'd want in a vibe pedal.

    Sweet sound seems interesting. Thanks Obelisk for the long list. Non of these seem to have the control of the DLS without an additional pedal to hook up. One even runs on AC which I don't have on my board. They all seem to be high quality.
