I think part of the reason the the Vortex flopped was that it was had no 
MIDI and it was too expensive.  I love mine, but I bought it for $150 in 
the Guitar Center blowout.  I would never have bought it for the original 
price.  Adding MIDI would have probably put another $100-200 on the price 
and driven further into the Lexicon Hall of Shame.
