ZVEX Vexter Instant Lo-Fi Junky Chorus Vibrato Pedal

Inject some lovely vibrato and chorus modulation into your signal with the Instant Lo-Fi Junky. Adjust the waveform of your signal for some demented tones.
The Vexter Instant Lo-Fi Junky is a composite pedal of sorts. Any of you who've heard the sound of the Lo-Fi Loop Junky will understand this pedal immediately -- its purpose is to imitate that sound in real time. Joel Korte, the extraordinary engineer behind this device, was able to create a combination of THAT chip compression, Belling bucket-brigades, and ultra low-current. National Semiconductor op-amp filters to exquisitely copy the texture and feel of the original Lo-Fi into this extraordinary box, adding some outrageous sounds that have never been heard before.

Controls

- Volume: Overall output volume for the unit.
- Tone: Can be used to lower the brightness of the Lo-Fi signal (the vibrato sound). Does not affect the compressed signal.
- Comp/Lo-Fi: Adjusts anywhere between full compression and full vibrato mix. Blending the two (somewhere between the extremes) creates a chorusing sound.
- Speed: Adjusts the speed of the Vibrato (only affects the Lo-Fi sound).
- Depth: Sets the depth of the Vibrato (only affects the Lo-Fi sound).
- Waveform: Sets the waveform of the Vibrato's modulation. The traditional Lo-Fi Loop Junky simulation setting is triangle

"VCR Tracking sounds included "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
You can get some really lush tones if you dial the lofi side in. The compressor side of this pedal is super strong and oddly will really make your tone bright and spanky.But it’s a zvex so this thing can make some crazy noises like your 80’s vcr tracking knob is broken and it’s eating your tape. it’s alot if ideas jammed in one box. If you don’t like lofi tunes it’s really not for you. Ya it’s a bit noisey but a proper power supply helps calm that down or slap a noise gate in front of it for total silence.
Musical Background:
+20 years, Guitar, lots of bands but mostly jamming at home for fun now.
Musical Style:
Rock blues or any mix of the 2.
