A Classic Effect with Futuristic Style!

Flanging is one of the most classic modulation effects, discovered by accident and clutivated by some of the best guitarists in rock history. The TC Electronic Vortex flange takes this breathtaking effect to a whole new dimension. Speed, depth, feedback and delay-time controls take you though a wide range of flanging, from mild to jet engine extremes. The Vortex's feedback control is particularly unique, in that it allows you to dial in both positive and negative feedback, for totally different tone styles. A toggle switch also lets you select from modern flanging to classic tape-style warble. But there's even more to the Vortex flanger. In the center position, the toggle switch lets you access one of TC's TonePrint flanger styles, which you can download to your Vortex via USB. These alternate flanger styles include several presets made by some of today's hottest guitarists.

Best Flanger I have ever used.... By far!

After years of trying/buying different flangers, I was about to give up on finding one that I really actually liked. Every one I played always took over the sound of my guitar & the notes I was playing, so I always ended up hearing a sort of muffled flanging sound more than what I was playing... Just too much! It was like a muffled flange in the general key of what I was playing, also with a bit of volume drop. Every flanger I tried would just yield the EVH sound, which is attainable with the TC Electronic Vortex Flanger, but this thing does so much more. It's not overpowering like all the others, I hear the notes & chords I'm playing with flanger added to it, not the sound of a flanger with a vague representation of what I'm playing. This is the flanger I have been waiting for. I actually just ordered a second one. One for my home rig & one for the rehearsal space. Also, the new TC Electronic Helix phaser & Hall Of Fame reverb are amazing. All of the TC TonePrint pedals are great, but these 3 are absolutely nothing short of AMAZING!

Stratosphere Flange

Absolutely the best flanger I have ever used. From subtle to wild, it does it all! The tone is beautiful and with the tone print you can make even more outstanding preset tones. A must on any pedal board.

Wide range flanging with the Vortex Flanger

This is my first single effect flanger pedal I have numerous guitar effect processors which have flanging but does not have the wide range control like the TC Electronic' Vortex Flanger.I have searched for the best flangers and read numerous reviews and the Vortex Flanger was the favorite people chose including professional artists.So I bought me a Vortex Flanger and it does everything you want a flanger to do plus you can download free TonePrints of professional artists and install them right into the pedal "Wow". this is one effect pedal that I am going to keep on my pedal board and use for stage and recording projects.I am a satisfied customer!

Sweetwater Advice

Mitch Gallagher

Readers of SweetNotes and Sweetwater's other publications know that I love to get "hands on" with gear of all types. That's why I was so thrilled to be asked to work with TC Electronic to create an exclusive set of Sweetwater TonePrints for TC Electronic's pedals. Talk about hands on -- we were way deep inside those boxes! But let's take a step back here. TC's TonePrint line consists of five pedals: the Flashback delay, the Corona chorus, the Vortex flanger, the Shaker vibrato, and the Hall of Fame reverb. These compact and affordable pedals sound great and offer excellent features and benefits, such as allowing the analog input signal to pass through completely untouched. They're also very versatile, with algorithms drawn from TC's long history of amazing studio and guitar effects processors. That versatility is kicked way up by the TonePrint part of the equation. A TonePrint is a free downloadable preset that can be loaded into one of the five pedals. This preset might be an artist-designed sound or something from TC -- or in this case, special sounds crafted by yours truly. You can get the presets off the TC site and load them in your pedal via USB. Or, even cooler, you can use your iPhone or Android to "beam" a TonePrint into your pedal, instantly, anywhere you might be. Creating a TonePrint isn't as simple as playing with the front-panel knobs on the pedal to find a sound you like. TC uses specialized editing software that allows you to go deep into the pedal to adjust hundreds of parameters. It's an intense process, but also a lot of fun! In my case, I brought in a box of vintage pedals I'm no longer comfortable taking to the gig, and TC's Tore Mogensen and I spent hours re-creating the sounds of those pedals. We ended up with four TonePrints: a BOSS DM-3-style analog delay for the Flashback, a BOSS CE-2-style analog chorus for the Corona, a BOSS Dimension C-style multi-chorus for the Corona, and an original Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress-style flanger/chorus for the Vortex. After hours of work, we were very pleased with the results. Our goal was to capture the spirit of the original pedals, and I think we succeeded! Best of all, you can have these TonePrints for your own TC pedals, completely free of charge, courtesy of TC Electronic and Sweetwater! Simply use your computer to load the TonePrints from, or use your iPhone/Android to access them. TC pedals and TonePrints are a staple in my rig, and I hope that you find them just as useful. In the end, what I came away with from this experience was a true appreciation for just how powerful these unassuming little TonePrint pedals are. Check them out!
