I tried to get info out of Lexicon which would have made
this stuff predictable. I never got to speak to anyone who
could even understand the questions.
Basically there's times when a param in the A preset doesn't
have an equivalent in the B (or vice versa of course), when you morph
from A to B then that param heads off either to 0 or 64 (as if
that param was in B and set to 0 or 64, although you can't see it)
It's when those params go off to 64 that you get the extreme wierdness
in the middle of the morph.

Lexicon call this "Parameter Morphing" to distinguish it. 

As to Vortex sound quality, like the JamMan it samples at 32k
so you lose the very top of the frequency range. However apart
from the loss of those frequencies the actual quality is very good
