Gating very complex sounds like fuzz and delay is always a challenge. The Loop Gate™ provides a loop switch with a built-in “perfect” audio gate (high headroom, no distortion, no hiss) that lets you set up a loop of pedals you can switch in and out of your signal path at will, but you have a couple of really fun options to control that loop that include a cross-fade “mix” option, as well as creating tremolo-like sounds with “chop” mode.
Control options:Release, Gate, Sensitivity
Release Knob; Normal / Chop Switch: The release knob controls two different things depending on what position the “Normal / Chop” switch is in. In “Normal” mode, the release knob acts as a way to control the fade out time of the gate or cross-fade. The release time is completely adjustable from downright slammin’ (counterclockwise) to extremely long and lovely (clockwise), like the most gor-geous fadeout performed by a professional engineer. In “Chop” mode, the release knob controls how long the gate, once triggered, will open and close for. There is no fading in this mode; the audio is “chopped.” This control can be used like a tremolo speed knob because the gate will con-tinue to open and close in a rhythmic-like fashion as long as the gate’s sensitivity threshold is surpassed.
Sensitivity: A wide-ranging sensitivity control to set the turn-on threshold. It can be extremely sensitive if set all the way clockwise. If the user sets this all the way counter-clockwise, it is impossible for the gate to open, which is useful for crossfades while in “Mix” mode.
Buffer On / Buffer Off Switch: There is a switchable buffer on the “loop send” part of the device (receive is always buffered). These are the same glistening buffers found in the Lo-fi Loop Junky™ (the clean sound). Please see the back of this page for more information on turning this buffer off.
Gate / Mix Switch: In “Gate” mode, the device will gate to silence when the guitar signal does not reach the sensitivity threshold. In “Mix” mode, the device will allow clean guitar to pass when the guitar signal does not reach the sensitivity threshold; if the sensitivity threshold is met, it allows users to do crossfades when audio is being generated inside the loop (i.e. a playback device of some kind like the Lo-Fi Loop Junky).
Bypass Stomp Switch: True bypass switch.
Gate Stomp Switch: When this switch is not engaged, the device acts as a simple effects loop with a switchable send buffer (receive is always buffered). When it is engaged, the “Gate / Mix” switch will control whether the device is gating to silence or cross-fading.
