Dynacord CLS 222 Leslie Simulator clone
Anyone on this forum ever tryed to make a clone of the Dynacord CLS 222 Leslie Simulator?

I'm wondering if the sound this effect is so famous for is actually possible to clone?

Is there still interest in this topic? If so I could provide the schematics

I'm interested. Heard great reviews on this and would find it interesting to know more about this.

Sorry, I totally forgot to watch this thread.
If there is still interest in the schematics of
CLS222, please leave a message

Yes, I would like to see them.

OK here is a poor quality scanned version of the schematic, dynacord cls-222 pictures by picoshark - Photobucket

Give me 2 weeks, then I can scan the original sheets. At the time
I am blocked with emc measurements for the next week.
Sorry for the delay

Seems it would be a lot easier to make a real Leslie. DSP sucks.

Get yourself a mercotac and a few other parts, your good to go.

Oh yes, cloning the CLS222 is not easy at all.
This is a bunch of complex analogue circuitry about 20 analogue ICs on board.
Some of them, like the bucket brigade delay lines, TDA1022 (Valvo) are out of production for a long time, the VCAs CA3280 are very old, too.
Keep in mind that I designed this beast in the early eightys...:rolleyes:

I uploaded the scans of my original schematics.
Sorry, but the quality of these aged paper copy is quite poor.
Hope it helps anyway
