Source Audio releases Soundblox 2 MANTA Bass Filter

Source Audio Soundblox 2 Manta Bass Filter

Source Audio has announced the release of the Soundblox 2 MANTA Bass Filter, the next generation of Source Audio’s popular Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter.

The pedal features 12 top-notch filter effects that triggered the success of the original Soundblox Pro BEF plus the addition of eight variations of on-board distortion. The distortions are not just crunch, or amp simulation; they are specifically designed to work in tandem with the filter effect selections. The Manta’s vast range of effect combinations and adjustable parameters offer an abundance of options, from classic funk tones to modern, super-aggressive dubstep wobble effects.

The Manta features a very unique signal path, internally splitting the instrument’s dry and distorted signals. The dry signal alone controls the envelope, increasing the playing response from the filter. Bob Chidlaw, Source Audio’s Chief Scientist explains, “The main reason we put in the distortions was to be able to use distortion without it severely compressing the dynamic range of the envelope follower. The twenty-four filter types provide a lot of opportunity to shape the final tonal spectrum. Lowering the frequency control generally makes things more mellow, although the Manta prefers to be a snarling, nasty killer!”

The Manta features twelve filter effects, including classics like 2 and 4-pole Low-Pass, Single-Peak, Multi-Peak, and Phasers. The Distortion Types include Hard and Soft clip, Octave distortion, Fold-back, Quantized, and synth-like Gated Fuzz. Each distortion has independent gain levels adjusted by the Drive control. There is also the choice of five different modulation sources including a Fast Attack and Slow Attack Envelope, Sine LFO, Square LFO, and Sawtooth LFO. Plus, like all Soundblox 2 pedals, the Manta is compatible with the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal, the Hot Hand 3 Wireless Effects Controller, or MIDI control signals via the Soundblox HUB.

The Soundblox2 Manta Bass Filter is available to purchase for $169 USD.

Cableguys updates public beta of FilterShaper 3 (incl. GUI improvements)

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 15, 2014 - comment 1 comment

Cableguys has updated the public beta version of its upcoming FilterShaper 3 effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Cableguys FilterShaper 3 (beta)
The latest beta version of Cableguys FilterShaper 3.

New beta is up! Almost all UI fine-tunings have been done, changed the color from red to orange for better readability, we introduced preset categories in the preset browser, and both filter cutoffs can be linked.

Plus the stuff which we added with the previous beta: Linking of LFOs between parameters, a nice fade effect when switching between modulations to illustrate the changing of LFOs.

FilterShaper 3 can currently crash in some rare cases when using the selection tool in the waveform area (click and drag to select multiple points and move them, resize them..). Steffen is working on fixing that right now.

FilterShaper 3 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) will cost 69 EUR / $89 USD. During the beta period, it is available to pre-order by purchasing FilterShaper 2 at 49 EUR / $69 USD (which includes a free update to version 3).
