(Varied Colours) What “Makes” a Lo-Fi pedal is it is capability to recreate a recording “gone incorrect” in actual time. In “For Elements or Repain” the recording medium is tape. Dropouts check with sudden momentary losses in sound. In actual world situations this may be brought on by one thing as drastic as a tape splice or as refined as mud. “Wow and Flutter” are deviations in pitch triggered because of fluctuations in tape rigidity brought on by defective playback mechanisms.
