RE: Reflex/Vortex Resonators

Michael asked the following:
"Please thank ms Ciccone and ask her if she's related to Madonna.
(i)    Are the resonators in the Reflex and Vortex the same?
(ii)   The details say that these "simulate the acoustic effects of
       multi-stringed instruments".  What does that mean in practice?  Will
it make my guitar more violin/cello - like?

No, Andrea is of no relation to Madonna.  That was one of the first 
questions that I asked her.

The resonators in the Reflex and Vortex are very different.  In the Vortex 
the resonator parameters are handled differently within each algorithm.  
the Reflex the chromatic resonator algorithm resonates chromatically off 
the input signal creating something like chromatic arpeggiation.  This is 
interesting sound though not that useful in the traditional sense, but 
youse folks here on dis list ain't the most traditional bunch anyway.

The chromatic resonator will make one note sound as if several notes were 
struck.  The inverse room may make your guitar sound more bowed if that is 
what you mean by violin or cello like.

Thanks for your interest and please let me know if you have any questions 
if there is anything that I can do for you.

Best regards,
