ZVex Effects Vextron Loop Gate
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 gorgeous 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 continue to open and close in a rhythmic-like fashion as long as the gate’s sensitivity threshold is surpassed.
When in "Mix" mode, it’s impossible for your guitar signal to get into the Loop. In fact, the Loop Gate send jack is grounded in this case. The purpose of "Mix" mode is to be able to crossfade your guitar signal with audio being generated in the Loop. So, you’ll need something happening in the loop for crossfading to occur (like a self-oscillating fuzz, delay or playback device of some sort).
Chop mode is arguably the coolest/most fun thing about this pedal. You can still use chop even while in "Mix" mode, even though it might seem kind of weird. The unit will go back and forth between your guitar signal and whatever is going in the loop.
