The other day, I came across this interesting video where Aota is playing the ZVex Fuzz Probe (lead) on top of a nice melody looped by the ZVex Lo-Fi Loop Junky. I wanted to post this to illustrate some of the tones/soundscapes that can be achieved. It’s not a demo, but cool little piece. Let me know what you think! Video posted by pcijapan.
Overview The Fuzz Probe is a kind of cross between a theremin and a fuzz factory. There is a 3 5/8″ antenna plate mounted on a chunk of 3/8″ clear acrylic that passes over the top of the pedal housing, angles down to sharp turn, and goes back to the pedal.
Joel Korte, the extraordinary engineer behind this new 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 new and extraordinary box, adding some new sounds that have never been heard before.
