Overview

Based around Zvex's original Lo-fi Loop Junky, the Vexter Series Instant Loop Junky allows you to make your instrument sound as if it is being playing through a well loved vinyl record or old dirty tape machine. This pedal will compress your tone and add ebb and flow to the signal with subtle chorus and vibrato effects for an overall nostalgic sound. Like other Zvex pedals, the Lo-fi Junky is available in a hand-painted enclosure.

The knobs feel great. The rate can go extremely slow or really fast. It’s really 3 pedals in 1, chorus, compressor and lofi…

    I use this guy constantly for unique synth and rhodes/wurly sounds (and also on acoustic piano patches sometimes, which can make it sound like a piano track played on 78rpm vinyl), and I adore its unique vibes. Not good if you want regular chorus or regular vibrato, but great if you want those thin…
