Get more versatility from your pedal board with the Z-Vex Effects Loop Gate. The Loop Gate can work as a simple effects loop to bring any number of interacting pedals into your signal path with just one click of the footswitch, but it can also do much more. Set the Normal/Chop switch to normal and dial in a fade out time with your Release control to get a natural trails effect for any delay, or switch to Chop to use your pedals in a rhythmic on/off, tremolo like effect. Select the Gate setting of the Gate/Mix switch and adjust the Sensitivity control to clean up any non-musical sounds in your signal, or select Mix and to activate the loop at higher volume to add your effects according to your own dynamics. The Gate footswitch lets you select either of these on the run, engage the footswitch for Gate/Mix operation, or disengage and use the Loop Gate as a simple effects loop with an optional send buffer. The Z-Vex Loop Gate is wired for true bypass and runs on any standard 9vDC power supply or battery.
