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. The beauty of introducing a loop into
a noise gate is that the device looks at your guitar signal
to see when you want to gate. It doesn’t even bother to
look at the output from your loop of pedals… that is way
too noisy to study. It’s much better to look at the incoming
guitar signal to see what’s up, and that’s just what the Loop
Gate™ does. The guitarist can have all sorts of crazy things
happening in the loop without worrying that all of that sonic
madness will trigger the gate.
