It's a midi arpeggiator. Comes in a cheap plastic box, and has a 
difficult user interface with about 4 buttons and a few red leds. From what
I understand, once you figure out how to program it, nothing compares to 
arpegiating power. It's been out since the late 80's, I think. 

Since the Vortex does audio and no midi, and the Cyclone does midi and no
audio, you probably need a Buchla Lightning to use them together...;-)
