Re: Z-Vex Lo-Fi Loop Junky

Ohboy am I slow, but I did get my chips (definitely what Zachary uses) from
Digi-Key recently and will be (slowly) trying to work these things into a
Low Fi Looper Something Or Other.

Have searched the web hoping for a Z-Vex Lo Fi Looper schematic, to no
avail.  Am wondering how he gets the modulation.  Anyone with a clue please
drop me a line?

BTW, any LFL owner just *may* be able to increase their fidelity a hair by
replacing the 2.7 kHz chip with a 3.2 kHz version (*way* longer sample 
available, too), if Z. has used a socket--though that may be unlikely...
