Source Audio launches Soundblox 2 Stingray Multi-Filter

Source Audio Stingray Multi-Filter

Source Audio has announced the release of the Soundblox 2 Stingray multi-filter pedal.

Since the introduction of the Hot Hand Wah back in 2006 and the Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter in 2011, Source Audio has built a reputation for making excellent filter effects with immense tonal range and superior envelope control. The Stingray carries on that tradition and adds some exciting features like new LFO wave shapes, onboard overdrive/fuzz, improved envelope response, external control options, and full MIDI capabilities. “Over the last ten years, no other effects company has been as deeply invested in all aspects of filter understanding and development as Source Audio” says company owner, Roger Smith, “Stingray is our ultimate creation and expression of beauty and depth.”

The Stingray includes 12 diverse and finely crafted filter effects, including low pass, high pass, phaser, single peak, and multi-peak. Each filter brings its own unique character, from a resonant and aggressive Single Peak Filter, to smooth, vowel flavored Multi-Peak effects. The Stingray also contains an internal overdrive/fuzz circuit that adds an entirely new set of possibilities to the sound palette – users can blend a wide range of distortion levels with any of the filter effects, from moderate overdrive to extreme and aggressive fuzz.

“I truly think the potential of filter effects has been largely ignored by pedal builders,” says Source Audio’s Head of Engineering, Jesse Remignanti. “Traditional envelope filter pedals are very limited in the range of sounds you can get, but with the LFO waveform options and built in overdrive, the Stingray has a wealth of completely original tones, everything from basic wahs to ambient oscillating vocal sounds and beyond. This pedal really is a filter powerhouse.”

Stingray Multi-Filter features

  • Diverse Sound Palette — Features 12 different Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Single Peak, Multi-Peak, and Notch filters.
  • Onboard overdrive/fuzz that blends perfectly with any of the Stingray’s filter effects. Drive tones range from warm and natural overdrive to extreme fuzz.
  • Control filter modulation with envelope follower, Tap Tempo LFO (sine, square, random sample-and-hold, or saw tooth), Hot Hand, or the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal.
  • MIDI Capable — Use the Soundblox HUB for MIDI access to control parameters and save up to 128 user presets.
  • Deep Control Set — Access to control parameters typically found in only professional rack-mount effects, or computer software. Adjustable parameters include Modulation Depth, Filter Frequency, Resonance, Wet/Dry Mix, Overdrive, Overdrive EQ, Output Level and more.
  • State-of-the-Art DSP — Our proprietary 56-bit Digital Signal Processor, the SA601, and crystal clear 24-bit converters.
  • Two programmable user presets easily accessible via two dedicated footswitches.
  • Multi-Function Jacks — Use the Source Audio Hot Hand motion sensors, or Dual Expression Pedal, for on-the-fly control over modulation or any knob parameter.
  • Universal Bypass — Select either analog buffered or relay based True Bypass.
  • Compact, rugged, cast aluminum housing. Dimensions: L: 4.5 in./11.4cm x W: 4.5 in./11.4cm x H: 2.25 in./5.7cm (including knobs) 9V DC power supply included.

The Soundblox 2 Stingray Multi-Filter is available for MSRP $249 USD (street $169 USD).

Electro-Harmonix releases Clockworks

Related: , , , Posted in news on Sep 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Electro-Harmonix has launched Clockworks, a rhythm generator/synthesizer pedal.

Electro-Harmonix Clockworks

Clockworks is a faithful reissue of the classic pedal made by Electro-Harmonix in the 1970s. It can be used as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines, and to trigger electronic percussion products like the EHX Crash Pad classic drum synth.

Clockworks doesn’t create sound on its own. It generates pulses to trigger other devices and can set the tempo for a drum machine or sequencer like EHX’s 8 Step Program.

Clockworks features

  • Works as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines.
  • Generates pulses to trigger devices like electronic percussion products.
  • Connect up to four devices to the four separate clock channels driven from the same master clock. Creating polyrhythms is fun and easy.
  • Master clock can be generated internally by the Clockworks or come from an outside source.
  • Fully analog.
  • Supplied with an EHX 18VDC/500mA AC Adapter.

Clockworks is available for purchase from Electro-Harmonix dealers, priced at MSRP $293.73 USD.

Korg has announced a number of new products for Autumn 2014.

electribe

Korg electribe

Flexibly shifting in style to match the trends of today, the electribe series continues to lead the world’s dance music scene.

Approximately ten years after the Electribe MX first went on sale in 2003, we now introduce a long-awaited new model that’s designed to be simple and easy for the beginner to understand, and even more enjoyable than ever for existing users. The electribe perfectly fulfills two tasks that both demand speed: live performance and music production.

electribe sampler

Korg electribe sampler

The electribe sampler has been reborn with cutting-edge technology inherited from popular KORG products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile.

The internal memory lets you save 250 patterns, including preset patterns which are perfect for today’s dance music scene. There’s also support for the polyphonic playback that’s indispensable for styles that include complex chord progressions, such as House music.

mini kaoss pad 2S

Korg mini kaoss pad 2S

A powered-up mini kaoss pad 2, the mini kaoss pad 2S (“S” for sampler) is a powerful DJ effect unit that fits in the palm of your hand.

It includes the familiar KORG touchpad, which allows you to intuitively control 100 different effects, and a sampler function that makes it easy to load and trigger a variety of sounds. Whether you are playing or performing, you’ll have more fun than ever with the powerful mini kaoss pad 2S.

Slimpitch

Korg Slimpitch

Announcing a new compact tuner for the brass band and orchestral performer. The Slimpitch features a high-brightness, high-contrast color LCD for superb visibility. The body is more compact than ever, making the unit small enough to fit in your hand.

A dedicated contact mic is included, and a newly-developed magnet mechanism lets you attach the unit to your music stand without obstructing the sheet music. With enhanced visibility and improved ease-of-use, this tuner sets a new standard that is exemplary of KORG’s attention to detail.

Rimpitch-C

Korg Rimpitch-C

Rimpitch-C expands upon KORG’s innovative Rimpitch tuner by adding chromatic functionality. By attaching the tuner inside the sound hole of your acoustic guitar, you can casually observe the tuning meter at an incredibly convenient viewing angle.

With a broad detection range and a calibration function, this model allows accurate and discrete tuning in a wide variety of performance environments. The Rimpitch-C is the ideal choice for acoustic guitarists who require a more flexible tuning option.

MIKU STOMP

Korg MIKU STOMP

The volca sample is a sample sequencer that lets you edit and sequence up to 100 sample sounds in real time for powerful live performances.

It’s a powerful addition to any existing volca setup, or simply on its own. The new volca lets you recapture the excitement of the first generation of samplers, in which any sound — vocals, spoken words, ambient sound, or glitches — becomes material for your creations!

Pa3X Le

Korg Pa3X Le

The Pa3X Le has a huge collection of onboard sounds, and provides a generous 192MB of space for either your own samples, or widely available add-ons. With over 410 built-in Styles (and room for 1,200 in total), you can cover almost any musical style imaginable.

The Pa3X Le’s impressive feature set includes a TC Helicon Vocal Harmonizer, a dual MP3 player & recorder, a powerful Dual Crossfade Sequencer, and much more. Use the video output to display lyrics or score on an external monitor, making it perfect for karaoke or band leading. On stage, the Pa3X Le provides a professional look with a sturdy black aluminium case with wooden side panels.

CLIPHIT

Korg CLIPHIT

The CLIPHIT is a new electric drum kit that’s ideal for drum practice at home or for casual playing. Attach the clips with their internal sensor to a magazine, desk, or almost any surface, transforming it into a snare, hi-hat, or cymbal.

You can also attach these clips to practice pads, using them to play drums or any of the programmed EFX sounds that include dog sounds, cat sounds, hand clapping. CLIPHIT will breathe new life into your drum practice, and is a great way to enhance your experience and creativity.

Pricing and availability of these products is to be announced.
