Re: Vortex Sync with Echoplex

Ill be honest to you, it was a very long time since I did it actually.
I built the circuit internally inside my Vortex I disconnected the A/B channel plug. so now I can just connect a regular lead between EDP and Vortex.
I take a cable from the input jack for the tap switch and the morph switch, thru small switches mounted on the front of the Vortex, and back to the circuit, and capaciter, and out the now defunct A/B socket...

(See the two little switches in the top right?)
One synchs the tap to the EDP one synchs the morph.

I have to say that both dont work at the same time, its one OR the other, but setting a long morph on one preset and a short morph on the other is very cool, cos then I morph one way over a bar, and then vortex jumps  back and does it again, rather than the usual slow fade both ways...

But connecting the ground would be wrong. the ground is just the ground. What you should be doing is connecting the signal to ground via a capaciter, to smooth out (or is it to lengthen.. ) the pulse. isnt there a diode in there somewhere...? make sure that its round the right way... they are always the bugger.

Hi Mark,
don't know what's wrong.
i connected the ground of both jacks to the ground connected to the capacitor.
is that ok ?

Sure... Mine works... Plus mine can sync morph switching to the beat
too..  Keep trying it's a great mod.

Hi !
a question for Vortex and EDP owners:
did one of you tried this : http://www.andybutler.com/vortex/edpsync.htm
i tried but didn't manage to make it work...
