TC Electronic Vortex
If you have ever found yourself craving a simple flanger to put on your board, then here is your answer. This stompbox has TC’s well known high quality build and design, and can be cracked open like a treasure chest to find many hidden gems with TonePrint. Do not underestimate this little guy. It has some serious sonic skills.
External Control: APP/TPRINT
This is about as simple as a flanger gets. The controls are intuitive and simple to understand. Beyond that, a whole new world can be opened up with the use of TonePrint.
With three very expressive knobs, you can create a variety of different and useful sounds. The multitude of sonic options that are available are not truly accessible with the knobs alone.
Clarity of Effect: 3.5/5
The effect is clear and resonant, but you do lose a little bit of signal. That can be a bit of a detriment and might require a bit of boost elsewhere on your board.
Live application: 3.5/5
Like most TC pedals, this is a reliable and well thought out pedal for live use. It does not take much work to find nice sounds and can be a great addition to your board.
