Well, not really. I didn't have the Echoplex long enough to really get too
deeply into the MIDI implementation, and since the Vortex doesn't have
MIDI, there's really nothing you could control from the Peavey. I have
considered writing a Jamman control patch, using the buttons on the Peavey
to send patch changes, but haven't as yet.

One thing I have found is that using a MIDI to CV converter (my Doepfer
modular includes one), you can plug the CV output into the pedal input on
the Vortex, and control morphs via MIDI. I'm wondering if you could use
gate voltages into the tap pedal input to MIDI sync the vortex.
Unfortunately, all my gear is packed away right now because of my impending
move, and it may be a week or 2 before I can set it all up again. I'm
starting to feel withdrawal already.
