How'd you discover this?
The JamMan has a similar undocumented feature, but only 440Hz (accurate
tuning) and 1kHz.
I found this while investigating the JamMan diagnostic mode ( used for
ch). Power up holding reset/bypass, hit tap ,turn mode knob till 13
hit tap again,turn mode knob to select 4 or 1 (440 or 1k), tap again.
I figured the Vortex might also have a diagnostic, I was quite surprised.
Using different settings at stage ii) does different stuff , but mostly
0C Resets registers to the presets (nasty).
04 gives a lightshow when you turn the preset knob
09 takes you to the normal vortex operation
