Loads of lo-fi goodness with sounds you've never heard.

The ZVex Vexter Series Lo-Fi Junky Modulation and Chorus/Vibrato guitar effects pedal emulates the ZVex Lo-Fi Loop Junky in real time though a combination of THAT chip compression, Belling bucket-brigades and ultra low-current National Semiconductor op-amp filters. It exquisitely copies the texture and feel of the original Lo-Fi in a new and extraordinary box. It also adds some new sounds that have never been heard before.
The ZVex Lo-Fi Junky Modulation and Chorus/Vibrato pedal lets you cook up a tone that's perfect for you. Get uber dark tones that are downright eerie, or get bright compression that lasts for days. Mix the sparkly clear compressed signal with the smashed, lo-fidelity warbled signal for a luscious emulsification that can be blended to the most perfect depth. The Lo-Fi Junky Modulation and Chorus/Vibrato pedal lets you set exactly how much of the two signals are present in the mix.

Zvex Vexter Series Instant Lo-Fi Junky Modulation and Chorus/Vibrato Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

  • Volume, Tone, Comp Lo-Fi, Depth, and Speed knobs
    Powered by 9V battery or 9VDC power supply (sold separately)
    1 year warranty

  • Nothing Else Like It

    As reviewed by Christian Encarnacion on 12/27/2012

    There's not another maker on the market that makes a pedal like the lo-fi pedals that Zvex makes. Cranking the middle knob towards lo-fi yields some warbley sounds; cranking the depth and speed knobs can make it go even farther! Leaving it set to the middle (triangle wave) setting on the toggle switch is very much the middle of the extremes. The sine wave is a little rounder while a square wave is the most extreme. For the most extreme lo-fi sounds, the square wave will get you there. But there's more! At first glance, this pedal could be assumed to be used only for novelty sounds in specific application. On the left side of the middle knob is a fantastic compressor! leaving the toggle at sine wave or triangle, and then setting the depth and speed knobs to noon gives an exceptional compressor sound. As you turn the knob towards the lo-fi side a shimmering chorus comes out. Put simply, I prefer the chorus sounds I've gotten from this pedal than from various Boss chorus pedals and the TC Corona Chorus. Like any other chorus pedal, just use the depth and speed knobs to control. Plus, there's a tone, level, and three wave shapes to choose from. On a side note, if you've never had the opportunity to take a look inside of a Zvex pedal, do it! Rather than having the battery held in place by the side walls of the pedal, everything is situated inside the pedal so that the potentiometers, switch, and jacks work to secure the battery in the middle of the pedal. It's quite a precise placement of components inside the box. I was using a Corona Chorus before, an this simply trumps the chorus sounds I was getting from that pedal. The only downside I have run into is finding pedalboard space. It's kind of an awkward design to fit on my pedalboard with it being a short, wide pedal, but it's a minor inconvenience; the sound is well worth it.

  • Really fun pedal

    As reviewed by Charles Bermani on 12/27/2012

    It took me a little bit to find the groove where this pedal fits, but once I got it there, I liked it. First and four most this is not a vibrato pedal, this is a Vibrato pedal with a strong compressor. There is no getting rid of, or toning down the compression, it is constant. The compression adds a nice full body to your tone, i.e. it really changes things and how you play. There isn't any controls for the compressor, so it is lump it or leave it. You don't like playing with a compressor, move on. Anyway, if your fine with that compression, then we have a nice Vibrato pedal for you. The vibrato section features control of volume, tone, mix, depth, rate, and three wave shapes: triangle, sine and square. The mix knob and depth seem to have a bit more interplay with one another. The mix can get a nice chorus effect, Although it isn't great for faux leslie sounds. With the mix fully engaged the vibrato is really nice. I enjoyed the square wave with a really slow speed. The square wave out of sync with your rhythm adds a nice old record with scratches sound. Or with the sine wave it sounds like a motor on a record player that isn't running at a steady speed. Although the old crackle and pop can not be recreated with the lo-fi loop junky. There is some interesting overtones you can make with the sustain created by the compressor. This is really what makes this a fun pedal to play. Different for sure. Remember its not a vibrato pedal.

  • Lofi...yes

    As reviewed by TED SKORKO on 4/22/2014

    I think this a special piece of equipment. It might not be for everyone but I think it sounds like nothing else. I tend to use it for a couple of different applications. I think it's awesome to use with a looper(phrase sampler)in a way that would be similar to the lofi loop junky that it's based off of. It's great for making loops that sound different than your clean guitar tone. Somehow it always reminds me of the weird, degraded guitar tone on the velvets femme fatale, which I love. I tend to think a lot of guitar loop pedal trickery is kind of not my thing, but I like using this pedal to make loops with my boss rc30 that are sonically potent (and weird). I also love the way it sounds on my synth (weird, pitchy, warm, degraded, etc.) There is some hiss I associate with this pedal because of all the compression. It's kind of usable white noise though. If that's not for you you could probably get around it somehow with a gate.
