Re: delay question / Vortex?

With my Vortex I assign the expression pedal to morph on all my patches- no
matter what user patch I go to the expression works on Morph- I'm not sure
if you are trying to do something different than this-

As for finding them there are 2 on Ebay right now. Not too hard really IMO.
