I am pretty excited about this giveaway. I contacted Source Audio over a year ago about my interest in their pedals and they sent me some to try out. I was really impressed with the variety of sounds that are possible with each and how easy each pedal is to dial in. They don’t just make a phaser, their Tri-Mod Phaser has a variety of unique sounds that can be changed with their famous Hot Hand Motion Controller.
Their Pro-Bass Envelope Filter doesn’t sound like any other envelope filter out there. It too has the same enormous sound availability as their phaser, with access to further adjustments via the Hot Hand Motion Controller. The Pro-Bass Envelope Filter can get the traditional funky envelope but with more adjusting, you can take it to the synthesizer realm of low end. You can also use a standard expression pedal with this unit as well.
The other pedal I am excited about is their Programmable EQ. As you know, I use a lot of pedals and some pedal combinations might need certain EQ boosts to attain a sound I am going for. The cool part of this pedal is that you can program up to four presets of EQ or just plain db boosts. Anyone really getting into sound sculpting knows how valuable this can be to all existing soundscapes. Think of all the possibilities of an EQ boost for those stubborn fuzzes that lack low end or the octave effects that lose top end and need help from an EQ pedal to regain what was lost. The Programmable EQ makes your life easier because it’s cheaper than buying four separate EQs; it also saves you the space on your pedalboard!
These pedals are, at this time, my favorite Source Audio pedals, but be sure to check out their other products. For example, they have this Dimension Reverb that sounds like no other reverb I’ve heard- more spacey and sci-fi than most. Their Hot Hand Motion Controller is something every musician should check out- it’s a revolutionary idea that has YouTube buzzing.
