The stereo Vortex ($129 street) offers two ways to get
your flange on. A 3- way mini toggle selects between Tape,
Flange, and whatever TonePrint you’ve loaded. On Flange,
the Vortex is great for swooshy, classic-rock sounds, but it
can also give you whistling birds, grinding industrial machinery,
or spiraling staircases of otherworldly tonalities. TC
has done an amazing job creating a pedal that can satisfy
both the weekend warrior who needs to nail “Unchained,”
or the sonic sculptor who revels in the kinds of sounds
that would get you kicked out of a bar gig.
Tape is the more organic side of the Vortex, and it nails
the signature swirl created when two tape recorders are
made to drift in and out of phase with each other (typically
by manually slowing one machine). The traditional flange
sounds you can dial in here are juicy and inspiring, and you
can venture into rocket-ship effects and other spacey timbres
by simply tweaking the Feedback, Depth, and Delay
Time settings. As the most far-reaching flanger pedal I’ve
heard in a long time, the Vortex receives an Editors’ Pick
KUDOS Stellar range of effects. Superb sound quality.
