Re: Vortex noisy?

Very odd, my unit is a dirty and noisy beast.  Squeaky clean is not 
something I could ever say about it.  On the last go round of this 
it seemed the consensus was that the Vortex was noisy, turn down the 
level and live with it.  Maybe its worth a question to Lexicon.

I love the Vortex.  What it can do to loops is amazing.  I still consider 
getting a second one now and again.
