Leslie speaker effect

• Sep 15, 2019 - 20:27

I have an organ score in which I would like to add a fast and slow Leslie speaker effect at selected sections. For the score itself a staff text for "Leslie fast" or "Leslie slow" is sufficient, but if possible I would like it to play back with the effect simulated. Is there any way to do this? I tried tremolo but it sounds terrible. It's not really a tremolo but rather a rapid switching on and off of the notes.

According to Wikipedia there are two versions/definitions, one being "a rapid reiteration of a single note" (exactly as you describe), and the other being "a variation in amplitude", which is what I understood it to be. I was unaware of the first definition (thanks for the info), but in any case the latter is what I'm after.

Not to be pedantic, well, ok, to be pedantic, a rapid reiteration of a single note can be described as a (limiting case) rapid variation in amplitude "and then, we're only arguing about coefficients", as the old joke goes...Anyway, MuseScore goes as Marc says.
