Nord Leslie Simulator versus Neo Ventilator

BPlayer

I just purchased a Nord Electro 4d from Sweetwater that has a very good Leslie 122 simulator. But I keep hearing great things about the Neo Ventilator. Does anyone know which one sounds the most realistic - the factory Leslie sim in the Nord or the Neo ? Thanks!

Most people say the Vent sounds better than any Leslie sim out there. There are even people who have replaced their real Leslies with it. However, it's debatable whether it's significantly better than some built-in sims. Is it worth the price to you?
Also, some think that the best part of the Vent is the overdrive.
There is also the new BURN from Crumar/GSi, makers of VB3. We're still waiting to see how that compares to the Vent head-to-head.

Thanks Joe for the info! I plan to wait until the new model Ventilator "Vent II" comes out later this year and compare.
