Source Audio introduces Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 15, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Source Audio has announced the release of the Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter, a pedal which packs the power and flexibility of a rack-mounted unit into a user-friendly stompbox, staying true to Source Audio’s signature approach of offering maximum tone diversity with extraordinarily easy-to-use and intuitive interface.

Source Audio Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter

The Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter was designed in the mold of the very popular Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter. Immediately upon release, the BEF was incorporated into the touring rigs of bass notables, Mike Gordon of Phish, Kevin Walker of the Justin Timberlake and Prince bands, and Jai Dillon of the Jason Mraz band. Source Audio expects to see similar enthusiasm for the GEF. The pedal was already shown at the 2011 Winter NAMM Convention in Anaheim, CA and received a tremendously positive response. Both Premier Guitar and Guitar Player Magazines included the Soundblox GEF as one of the most notable products on the floor in their NAMM recap issues.

The GEF offers an extensive set of 21 individual envelope filter effects, from traditional auto wah sweeps to more dramatic vocal simulations. Filter categories include 2 and 4 Pole Low Pass, Single Peak, Triple Peak, Peak & Notch, and Phaser. Due to the finely tuned nature of the pedal, even the slightest gap in the incoming signal will reset the filter position providing a full sweep range for every note. The control panel is simple, but allows users to dial in a broad range of tones. Minor adjustments, such as a change in the direction of the filter sweep, can produce significantly different sounds within a single filter type. The three-knob control panel provides adjustability to the center point of the frequency sweep, the depth and direction of the moving filter, as well as the attack and decay times.

On its own, the GEF can be modulated in the fashion of a standard auto wah, but is also controllable via Source Audio’s patented Hot Hand Motion Controller Ring for a remarkably expressive and unique approach to filter modulation. The unit also features proprietary state-of-the-art 56-bit Digital Signal Processing (DSP) with 24-bit converters for crystal clear output.

Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter features

  • 21 Filter Sounds including 2 Pole Low Pass, 4 Pole Low Pass, Single Peak, Triple Peak, Peak and Notch and Phasers.
  • Positive and Negative filter sweep with variable range and sensitivity.
  • Dual range speed control allows equal adjustment of Attack and Decay speeds, or alternatively, a fixed, fast attack and adjustable Decay.
  • Modern Design — a thoughtfully designed box that features rugged construction and sleek looks.
  • State-of-the-art DSP — proprietary 56-bit Digital Signal Processor, the SA601 and crystal clear 24-bit converters.
  • Motion Control — all Soundblox™ pedals are “Hot Hand® Ready” and can be used with any Hot Hand motion sensor to extend the capabilities of the unit.
  • Active Analog Bypass — bypass is fully routed around the DSP and active input ensures zero signal degradation.
  • Dimensions: 7 in/17.8cm (length not including 1/O jacks) x 4 in/10.2 cm (width) x 2 in/5cm (height, including knobs).
  • Note: Power supply not included.

Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter is available to purchase now, priced MSRP $169 USD (street $119 USD).

Source Audio at NAMM, Sound Minds: Enhancing your musical creativity with effects

Source Audio 2011 Winter NAMM

Source Audio has announced Sound Minds: Enhancing your musical creativity with effects, its special artist appearance program for the 2011 Winter NAMM show.

Through the years we’ve spent introducing music effects both classic and new, we’ve found that perhaps the biggest road block musicians face in expanding their sound is that no one talks about how to use effects pedals to expand your sound. The magazines teach us theory and transcriptions and delve into what the greats are using, but rarely do we see answers to the essential questions of how and why.

So for this 2011 Winter NAMM we are tackling those questions head on with some help from our friends, Bakithi Kumalo, the bassist renowned for his work on Paul Simon’s Graceland; Kevin Walker, funk aficionado and touring bassist for Justin Timberlake and Prince; Pete Griffin, the backbone bass player for Dweezil Zappa; Blackbyrd McKnight, musical director and lead guitarist of Parliament Funkadelic; and a few more surprise guests.

Bring your ears and mind to booth 5599 in Hall B at any time throughout NAMM. We, with our presenters, will be there to answer all of your questions and to give you hands-on demos of our full line of effects pedals.

Source Audio Soundblox Bass Enevelope Filter

Source Audio has announced that the Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter effect pedal is now available is select stores.

In accordance with Source Audio tradition, the BEF offers incredible variety, stellar sound, and superior control. This pedal houses 21 dramatically different filter types in a wide range of categories including 2 Pole Low Pass, 4 Pole Low Pass, Single Peak, Triple Peak, Peak & Notch, and Phaser. Sound quality was of the utmost importance in the making of this pedal, and it stands apart from other envelope filters is its powerful ability to maintain a commanding bottom end while still delivering an unbelievably vivid envelope effect. And finally there’s control—the easy-to-use interface gives you tremendous control of each filter’s center frequency, the depth and direction of the filter sweep as well as the speed of each envelope’s attack and decay

We really put a lot of work and research into this pedal so you can be sure it will stand up to the harshest critic. We know the pros dig it, the pedal has already found its way onto the pedal boards of Mike Gordon from Phish, Jai Dillon from the Jason Mraz band and Kevin Walker, the bass player for both Prince and Justin Timberlake!
