Re: Vortex problem
The rotary encoders are notorious for early failure. They're
almost always the problem. I've had a couple repaired by Lexicon,
but I've also had them sent them to me and installed them myself
semi-successfully. (one screwup with overheating and destroying the
pot). I've had 6 or 7 Vortexes and one last one in my rack that
acts semi-weird and I'm really starting to become very of dealing with
them. Gotta find something new for parallel stereo tweakage!

Well thank you for that Stefan... love the analogy...
I would go
with your ideas but my vortex does sem to have an odd problem, in that
a "reboot" fixes the problem for a while, untill I rotate an encoder,
and not always... if i leave it on a patch, no problems... the echos
will never disappear... it only when I twiddle my knob... (damn that

The most likely thing to fail in any electrical device is connectors,

connectors good sex. (You know, push'em in and out till they scream).
Only if that fails smell and look for blown parts...
Hmm why do you think its a leaky capacitor?
Electrolytic Capacitors on the the various power rails
are likely components to fail.
Also diodes in the power regulation, but that's more obvious
(Looping devices are like loopers, only if sex doesn't help you have to go to the doctor...)
