Test de la Zvex Instant Lo-Fi Junky

La pédale mange-disque Nous vivons une époque étrange, où les forces innovatrices se concentrent souvent plus à retrouver les « vieux sons d’antan » qu’à en créer de nouveaux. En même temps, il faut bien avouer qu’après le règne de l’apologie du digital qu’on a subi dans les années 80-90, un peu de saveur analogique, ça fait du bien ! Lire la suite…

L'avis de tsygced"Excellent"

Zvex Instant Lo-Fi Junky
Version US peinte à la main.
Sonorité vintage, passée dans un enregistrement à bande, parfaite avec de très bons contrôles très efficaces.
Un peu de souffle avec certains réglages, ceci-dit, cela ne choque pas pour trouver des rendus très chaleureux et organiques. Très sympa à brancher après la réverbe.
Ne se prête pas à tous les usages.
Testé avec JazzMaster sur amplis à lampes vox et fender, et en direct sur mixage.

- Volume knob
- Tone knob
- Record knob
- Depth knob
- Speed knob
- Safe switch
- Start and record footswitches
- Master volume knob for one of the two channels
- 9 Volt adapter requires modification or replacement bottom plate.
- Hand painted enclosure
- True bypass

The concept is fairly simple; it's a pedal that you can record a short sample to repeat over and over as many times as you want on the fly. With the Safe switch, it can also be recorded in advance. You have the ability to control the Recording volume, as well as the play back volume and tone. Since it's a "low fidelity" looper, you can also control the lo-finess with the Speed and Depth knobs.

The pedal does indeed sound lo-fi, even when the Speed and Depth are set to a minimum. The fact you can have a sample that sounds undegraded suggests that perhaps there are limitations in the design and perhaps the term "lo-fi" is a cover for them. That is simply conjecture. I am making this guess by the fact that my unit was particularly glitchy. Sometimes the Record switch had to be high multiple times before it would engage. Other times it worked fine. I am not sure if it was my particular unit or a design flaw.

It seems that all ZVex pedals are either straddling or over the line of price prohibitness. This is no exception. It seems like there are better, more functional, better sounding, better constructed loop pedals being sold. I'm not sure if it's the small footprint or the "cool" factor of the ZVex that attracts people to this particular pedal, but if I were to shop for one today, I'm almost positive I would have gone with something else. Luckily, looping is not something I find much use for.

Zvex Instant Lo-Fi Junky
The Instant Lo-Fi Junky is a brand new product from Zvex. It was designed to mimic the neat tones achieved by the Lo-Fi Loop Junky, an analog loop pedal also made by the company. Players loved the sound that they got from the Loop Junky, and wanted something that could get that tone in real-time.

The Instant Junky has 5 knobs (vol, tone, "comp/lo-fi", depth, and speed) as well as a switch to control the waveform. The volume control can get a good level of clean gain boost out of it, so it is already a valuable addition to a pedalboard with just that.

The comp/lo-fi knob is where this box shines. It acts as a blend between a compressor sound and a vibrato circuit. With the control all the way in comp, this pedal sounds like an old MXR Dyna Comp or similar. It can get really squished, and is fantastic for clean tone Telecaster chicken pickin'.

When that control is turned up a little, it engages the lo-fi circuit, which turns on the tone, depth, speed, and waveform controls. The sounds in the extreme end of this are very watery, shimmery, and just dripping with the cool factor. Playing around with the depth, speed, and waveform controls can achieve anything from nice chorus washes to near-Univibe churning. It won't pass for "Machine Gun" to most discriminating ears, but it would work in a pinch at a gig where someone requested some Hendrix or Trower and a Univibe pedal wasn't handy.

My favorite thing about this pedal was turning the comp/lo-fi knob to about 70% compressor, 30% lo-fi, and making the lo-fi very subtle, but turning the tone knob way down. I don't really personally want to emulate an old record player (as the hand drawn artwork on the box suggests), so I use this box to be a compressor/boost pedal with a touch of chorus. It is very inspiring on the clean tones, with a bit of delay and reverb added, and I could play on that tone all day.

This is a great pedal from Zvex, and would make a handy addition to any arsenal.
