This morning I was poking around looking for various ZVex products and I found one that I wanted to take a closer look. Heard good things about it, but never really looked too closely. I’m talking abou tthe Zvex Lo-Fi Loop Junky Looper pedal. There are some great digital based looper pedals out there, and I wanted to see what the deal is with this.
Here is the official description:
This is the ZVex Lo-Fi Loop Junky Looper Pedal. Itâ€™s really low fidelityâ€¦ the recording of your guitar is filled with hiss, moan, distortion and warped-record strangeness, but everyone will be able to tell the loop from your real guitar. Because the processing of your direct guitar is done with my new bootstrap circuit, with the very highest impedance circuit ZVex has ever developed (even higher than the super hard-on circuit) your direct guitar will have detail incomparable with anything youâ€™ve ever heard. The juxtaposition of your direct guitar against the smashed, distorted, shimmering/warbling recording of the loop mechanism will make it clear once and for all who is the guitarist and what is the machinery.
THERE IS NO ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERSION. Itâ€™s pure analog storage, just like the old bucket-brigade technology, for 20 seconds straight. It would take 25 800ms analog delay pedals to hold the loop that this thing can play.
I found this video by GuitarGearComMx. Side note.. big fan of Interpol!
