Tunings: Anybody out there using unusual guitar tunings to cover up the lack of bass in your loops? I've been trying several variants of tuning in 5ths (eg FCGDAE, DAFCGD or GCGDAE, low-high) which give very lush-sounding chords but can be a nightmare when it comes to playing single-note lines (hence the 4th in the bass on the G-E tuning, my current fave). Anyone else have similar experiences? Vortex: OK, this has probably been discussed to death. However, since there aren't any Lex dealers (AFAIK) in Glasgow, I'm going to have to ask some pretty basic questions about the Vortex. Feel free to EMail me personally if it keeps traffic down. Basically, what is it capable of? I get the impression that it's a one delay-plus-mod-effect at a time box (delay, rvb, chorus-ish stuff but no pitch-shift or EQ). It has 2 external switch outputs - are these probrammable for all patches? Does it accept MIDSI CC's, and if so will it alter the input rather than output signal (for swell FX that don't interfere with RVB fades?) Micro Synth: Olivier said: "it's VCA can cut attack so can play violin like line without touching your volume pot, no matter the speed of play." Is there anything else about that will do this?
