Vortices HiFi is a limited release version of the original Vortices. The HiFi version offers the same mixing topology without the tape compression, overdrive and high frequency roll-off. All inputs of the HiFi version are DC coupled, now allowing use as a full spectrum control voltage mixer in addition to audio. Featuring a total of 14 inputs and 7 outputs in a relatively compact 16hp form factor (18hp with VCA CV expander).
Vortices accommodates mono and stereo sources, broken respectively into two mix bus sections, provid- ing separate mix outputs as well as a Master Mix split stereo output and a Master stereo jack output on the back of the module.
The separated outputs and auxiliary inputs are provided to accommodate effect chains, feedback patch- ing and end of chain mixing solutions as well as general sound processing, panning and cross fading applica- tions.
Auxiliary Mono mix inputs provide additional unity gain inputs to the mono and stereo mixers for sum- ming external mixes, fx returns and other general uses.
The headroom of all final mix outputs is approximately 20Vpp before additional hard clipping of the summed mixes occur.
