The 'CLS 22' model was built from 1982 to 1988 and uses an exclusively analog signal. According to the manufacturer's official product brochure, Dynacord began developing the effect in the 1970s with the aim of imitating the sound of the mechanical rotor cabinet fully electronically and without wear. To do this, the manufacturer splits the input signal into a high-frequency and a low-frequency signal using an electronic crossover. Since the start-up and stop times of the two channels varied in a targeted manner, the rotor sound could be copied electronically. You could choose between fast speed (“Fast”), slow rotor sound (“Slow”) and untouched signal (“Stop”). In addition, the input level of the preamplifier, rotor balance, and output level of the signals could be adjusted between monophonic or stereophonic. On the back there is a power plug, jack sockets, XLR outputs, fine adjustments for the rotor speed and a footswitch input.

In 1989, a revised version of the device was released under the name “CLS 222”. This effect device supposedly now also uses a digital signal for signal processing, in contrast to the pioneer. However, according to the circuit diagrams in the service manuals, both the CLS 22 and the CLS 222 use purely analog circuits, including BBD chips (so-called “bucket chain memory”) for the signal delay. According to the manufacturer, the CLS 222 model could still be used for electric guitars, microphones and PA systems without any problems, although the previous model was designed more for keyboards
British rock musician Eric Clapton used a white “Dynacord CLS 222” from 1989 to 1996 as part of his Soldano/Cornish guitar routing system. The effects device came into the system for the B part of the Cream song Badge. On the original recording, Clapton recorded the part with an original Leslie speaker, but used the Dynacord as a replacement for the performances during the Journeyman World Tour and world tour in 1992.

The guitarist David Gilmour of the rock band Pink Floyd also used a “Dynacord CLS 222” in his guitar and effects device system, which, like Clapton, was also developed by the British electrical engineer Pete Cornish.

The guitarist The Edge of the Irish band U2 also used the “CLS 22” effects device. The French music producer and disc jockey Joakim Bouaziz uses a “Dynacord Leslie simulator CLS 222” in his New York Crowdspacer Studio.
