Re: Vortex Bleen and (NEW) rack to floor cables??

Aha, Thanks Andy... All becomes clear... I think... So there I was
desperately turning down the feedback controls when I should have been
turning down the mod amount!!!


On another issue: I have been thinking of making a big fat multicore cable
to connect my rack of er... stuff to all the misc pedals on the floor (a
good 20 minutes it take to plug in at soundcheck, by which time... there
isnt any!!!) Has anyone done this and found a good connector. It need to
take 6 audio/2midi/and various (8) stereo cable pedals (like the vortex
ones). I'm thinking of a big old metal box on the rack and a big old metal
box on the floorboard... could I use a mixing desk multicore cable....
Just wanted other peoples solutions... (When is stuff gonna be wireless???)

Hi Cliff, to see the numbers when pedalling you have to
set the Parameter knob to the function being controlled,
in this case morph.
Bet you sussed it just after releasing that post!

now down to the serious business

BLEEN B (just like Maze B)
To start with this is the only Vortex patch with
more than 100% feedback available.
If you put both Feedback 1 and Feedback 2 both
up high enough you get a louDER echo each time.
(although individually you can't get 100%)
this is because the Fbk 1 echoes are
in the feedback loop of fbk2

The odd runaway feedback happens because
this preset is prone to feedback even when
the feedback controls are turned down because
the feedback is modulated.
So if there's enough modulation you can get
max feedback for part of the cycle.

Now depending on the tap time the feedback sometimes
has the chance to run amok. It happens when the modulation rate
is such that one modulation cycle fits an exact number of
times into the echo time(or near enough).
If this is a problem you could try a different tap time.
