Re: Re[2]: Vortex Applications Notes

Thats Analog Devices, really the cheapest DSP there was.

You meand there is no possibility to do the sounds on a PCM80? That must be
a limit of the Lexichip then, because I cannot see anything the 2105 does
that the "big" standard DSP don't do.

But morphing could and should be done on the PCM80, right?

I was looking for that for all kind of sounds, because I did not want to
switch. So I have a fader between two guitar sounds I can choose. On one
end piezo, on the other bridge distorted, on one end polydistortion, on the
other clean humbucking... is that morphing, anyway?

Probably. And the JamMan, and the PLEX?
Certainly the LOOP delay will have a tremendous value - there are only 100
of it!
