cant the lexicon vortex do this kind of insane s**t in spades?
Allow me to elaborate:
The Vortex is two delay lines and two "mod" effects blocks (as well as several feedback and crossfeedback modules), routed to one another, and especially sensitive to parameter changes: volume (input envelope follower) and LFO, etc. You can get ring-modded echoes (where the amount of ring-modding follows your playing volume) that turn into polyrhythmic dual loops when you switch the A/B box/pedal/stomp. Or envelope-controlled detuning with auto-panning, turning into a vibrato-echo, with input level controlling vibrato rate.
Seeing as this has become a "Your delay chain" thread, rather than "your favorite delay", allow me to post my chain:
Digitech 3.6 rack delay on Aux Send 1(which has an LFO for delay time, as well as Infinite Repeat/Loop and knobs for every parameter), which generally feeds:
EV spring reverb for dubby goodness on Aux Send 2, either of which might feed:
Tube Echoplex tape delay via Aux Send 3, generally feeding back to itself, and also through the other effects. Any of this stereo dub goo can feed:
Lexicon Vortex digital weirdness effect on Bus Send 5-6 (to maintain stereo imaging, or deliberate subversion thereof. Inputs 5-6 of the recorder are hardwired to the tube DI, so no conflict there)
And, as you see, any of these can be fed back into any other, which is the true secret of delay. Just did a project using the Echoplex for vocals where my partner performed EQ of the vocal Send to Echoplex live, while I performed EQ of the return/feedback live, as well as level riding.
, it's good to have a large-format analog board back in effect at the place!
