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.

Singular Sound launches BeatBuddy – Guitar Pedal Drum Machine

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 14, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Singular Sound has launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of its BeatBuddy, the world’s first guitar pedal drum machine.

Singluar Sound BeatBuddy

Unlike all current drum machines, the BeatBuddy is in a pedal format, granting musicians a previously unobtainable ability — hands-free, creative control of a beat. This gives solo musicians the benefit of drums without a drummer.

“Drummers are hard to come by, and drum sets are even harder to carry,” said founder and developer David Packouz, “and drum machines are practically useless for jamming or live performance. The BeatBuddy is the first product to solve this fundamental problem. It’s the power of a drum machine, but the simplicity of a pedal.”

BeatBuddy features

  • Hands-free live control of the beat: Inserts fills, transitions from verse to chorus, adds accent hits (e.g. cymbal crashes or hand claps).
  • Pre-loaded with 10 drum sets and over 200 songs.
  • Any custom beat or drum set can be loaded through included computer software .
  • MIDI Sync: Integrates with other MIDI devices .
  • Convenient small single-pedal format.

The BeatBuddy is expected to be available in August, 2014, at a retail price of $350 USD. Indiegogo campaign supporters can get one for $199 USD with an expected delivery in April, 2014.
