Vortex Flanger: The pedal boosts the level

Question

I'm getting a noticeable volume boost when I activate my Vortex Flanger, both if I have placed it in the amp FX loop or if I place it in front of the amp. Why is this?

Answer

This is perfectly normal and this volume boost is not a unique issue with our Vortex Flanger but is inherent in the design of how the actual flanger effect works - our G-system , Nova System and G-Major 2 do the same (in fact all flangers have this property).

What you can do to get around this is to create your own TonePrint(s) using the TonePrint Editor which allows you to adjust the output level of the effect.
