Martinic Scanner Vibrato

Exactly like the real thing

Scanner Vibrato is a plug-in that recreates the scanner-vibrato effect from a well-known tonewheel organ.

The newly updated Scanner Vibrato is a virtual effect plugin that precisely recreates the scanner-vibrato effect from the legendary tonewheel organ we all love. Now improved with our trademarked ACE® modeling technique, the Scanner Vibrato is also available as part of the Martinic Retro Pack, a collection of Martinic’s grooviest instruments and effects with a bundle discount. If you would like instructions for this plug-in, you can browse through the manual page.


The original scanner-vibrato was developed in the 1940s, and was an analog, electromechanical device, consisting of an analog delay line and a mechanical rotor (“scanner”). The rotor was driven by the organ’s internal motor, and therefore its rate was fixed at about 6.9 Hz. The original scanner-vibrato could produce both chorus and vibrato effects, and it offered three depth presets. Read more about the history of the Scanner Vibrato.

Scanner Vibrato Overview

Martinic Scanner Vibrato is modelled closely on the original scanner-vibrato, so it offers the same features (and flaws), perfectly preserving the character of the original effect. However, Scanner Vibrato is more flexible; you can adjust the rate, depth, and even stereo width. And best of all, you can apply Scanner Vibrato not only to organ sounds, but also to guitar, synthesizer, or whatever sound you like.
