Michael asked:"So what does the vortex resonator do differently?" Well the Vortex doesn't really have what I would call a resonator. It has parameters labeled resonance which are handled differently within each of the algorithms: In the Reflection algorithms resonance controls the gain of the signal that resonates off of the detuned voices. In Atmosphere A Resonance 1 is the gain for the signal that resonates off of vibrato 1and Resonance 2 controls the gain of signals resonating off of the cross mix of the two vibratos. In Atmosphere B Resonance 1 is a mix control between 2 delay taps and 2 modulators and Resonance 2 provides tuning for the 2 modulators. In the both Orbits algorithms and the Centrifuge A algorithm Resonator 1 and 2 provide resonance off of the rotary signals 1 and 2. In the Centrifuge B algorithm the Resonance parameters control the gain of the resonance from each of the rotary signals. In the Aerosol algorithms Resonance 1 mixes the left and right modulation signals together and Resonance 2 affects the stereo image of the modulation effects. In the Mosaic algorithms the Resonance parameters adjusts the resonance of each of the modulation effects. In Maze A Resonance 1 is the resonance gain for the modulator and Resonance 2 controls the tuning. In Maze B Resonance 1 controls the gain for the left detune and Resonance 2 controls the gain for the right detune. In Duo A Resonance 1 controls the level of the resonation of the vibrato effects and Resonance 2 controls the mix of the resonation off of the 2 vibrato effects. In Duo B Resonance 1 controls the gain of the resonation of the vibrato effects and resonance controls the cross mix between the 2 vibratos. In the Deja Vu algorithms Resonance A is the gain for the resonation of the stereo glide and Resonance 2 is the gain of the cross-resonation of the stereo glide. In the Choir algorithms Resonance 1 is affects the resonance for the multi-chorus L-R cross mix and Resonance 2 affects the resonance for the multi-chorus R-L cross mix. In Shimmer A Resonance 1 controls the cross resonance gain of the modulated effects and Resonance 2 controls the tuning of the cross resonance. In Shimmer B Resonance 1 controls the gain of the stereo resonator and Resonance 2 controls the tuning of the resonator. In the Sweep algorithms Resonance 1 controls the left resonance and Resonance 2 controls the right resonance. In Sweep A the resonance is on the glide effect and in Sweep B the resonance is on the vibrato effect. In Shadow A Resonance 1 controls the R-L cross resonance of the modulated signal and Resonance 2 controls the L-R cross resonance of the modulated signal. In Shadow B Resonance 1 controls the low-pass filter cutoff frequency and Resonance 2 controls the cross-resonance of the modulated signal. In the Cycloid algorithms Resonance 1 controls the left filter cutoff frequency and Resonance 2 controls the right filter cutoff frequency. In Bleen A Resonance 1 controls the gain of the resonator and Resonator 2 controls the tuning of the resonator. In Bleen B Resonance 1 is the gain for the left detune and Resonance 2 is the gain for the right detune. In the Fractal algorithms Resonance 1 controls the resonance off of the stereo glide effect and Resonance 2 controls the gain of the cross-resonance of the stereo glide. According to the designer of Vortex any similarities of the Vortexs' resonator to that of any of its predecessors is purely coincidental. Sorry for the long post. Best regards, Greg
