- Vortex Mini Flanger
The flange sound has been with music through the ages - used in everything from vocals to drums. However, a guitarist you might have heard of (Edward Van Halen) showed them the only righteous place for flange is guitar!

TC hasn't seen your pedals board or anything, but their guess is it's pretty full. They're guitarists after all and they live for gear. So, they've built everything great about the original Vortex Flanger into a mini form factor so there's room for killer flange sounds no matter what your board looks like.

Comments about TC Electronic Vortex Mini Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:
I bought the Vortex Mini because I needed to add a little texture to some lead tones in certain songs my band plays. The vortex mini is small, which works out well for my crowded pedal board. The quality of the flanger effect is excellent, and the true-bypass insures there's no coloring of your tone when the effect is off. The only issue I had with vortex mini was one that is common with many flangers of any brand, and that is the perceived volume drop or volume boost when the effect is engaged. With my Vortex mini there was a significant perceived volume drop. It isn't that the signal is less at the output jack, but what causes the volume drop is that the guitar tones that usually cut through the mix are now swirling with the flange and they get pushed down in the mixture of tones coming out of the output of the effect which makes it seem like there is a volume drop. I dealt with this onstage by moving the Vortex next to a volume boost pedal and just activating both when I needed the flanger. That's a lot of trouble, so I replaced it with another brand flanger--which just happened to have a perceived volume boost. I can deal with the volume boost better than the volume drop, so I am content for now. I'm keeping the Vortex mini for studio work.
