Author Comments on ZVex LoFi Junky pedal VS. eurorack version

Seems like the same exact thing, except the eurorack version is missing the tone knob? I wonder how much I'll miss that and whether it makes sense to get the euro one or to just go with the pedal?
Comments?

I found a good deal on the pedal so went that route.

For me cv control doesn't seem hugely crucial with the Junky so the module doesn't justify the HP in my small setup, plus it's not a sound I will want to use %100 of the time.
Another + with the pedal is using it with the aux send on my external mixer is really convenient.

Probably can't go wrong either way, but I'm very happy with the pedal!

Is there any appreciable difference between the hand-painted and the Vexter Lofi Junky pedal versions? I owned the Vexter Lofi Junky pedal a few years ago and always thought it was a bit noisy

My understanding is that they're the same but I might be mistaken.

I'm considering getting the Warped Vinyl Mkii instead if It's going to be a pedal anyway. The Lofi junky seems like you can really only get one particular sound out of it.. not much variety.

emphasis mine
This gets said a lot and I don’t think it’s true. There are a bunch of distinctly different ways to grunge things up just owing to the setting of the comp/lofi knob. There are a whole range of settings in the middle which sound not much at all like the two extremes of the control not to mention when you start modulating it. CV control over speed makes for a bunch of cool possibilities as well that you don’t get in the pedal.

And in addition to the variaous CV ins the EXT waveform in is really a huge and cool feature you don’t get in the pedal.

been looking at these two recently - my understanding is that the eurorack has a dry/wet mix, which the pedal lacks. might be a nice way to get some parallel compression, which would be a bit more of a hassle to do with the pedal (though by no means impossible).

Interesting... what do you use the EXT waveform in for?
