The flange sound has been with music throughout the ages - used on everything from vocals to drums, but a guitarist you might have heard of (Edward Van Halen) showed us the only righteous place for flange is guitar! We've combined a classic tape flange with the awesome TonePrint technology, giving you access to everything from through-zero flanges to customized rockstar sounds!
We haven't seen your pedalboard or anything, but our guess is it's pretty full. We're guitarists after all and we live for gear. So, we've built all that is 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.

The Vortex Mini still features all the versatility you'd need for smooth to insane depending on how much you toy with the depth, speed and feedback controls... the little sister mini pedal offers a fantastic inroad to the effect for anyone who just needs a sound they can set and forget, especially when you consider that you can load in TonePrints from Steve Stevens, Orianthi, Bumblefoot and more...Check out the full review by iGuitar Magazine
You are getting quality sound with the Minis, and the sound confers a great advantage allowing you to cram more pedals on your board, or run a smaller neater setup.
There's a surprising amount of flexibility available from the three knobs, especially the feedback dial: take it out for Andy Summers-style chorus tones, or turn it up for EVH whoosh. The TonePrint Editor proves extremely useful for tailoring the flanger's sweep, and the zero-through flanging tones offer almost Uni-Vibe-ish sounds.
... the Vortex Mini's Depth, Speed and Feedback controls facilitate a wide range of flanging effects, and the unit supports TC's innovative TonePrint technology.
