Source Audio has released its soon-to-be-released EQ2 Programmable Equalizer at the Winter NAMM 2020.
The EQ2 is the second generation of Source Audio’s very popular Programmable EQ, a multi-preset, MIDI controllable pedal that landed on the boards of numerous pro guitarists, including six-string icons David Gilmour and John Mayer.
“Source Audio created a completely new product category when we released the Programmable EQ pedal back in 2011,” said Source Audio President Roger Smith.
“It gradually became one of our most successful products. We are confident that the EQ2, with its ten adjustable frequency bands, stereo I/O, and both graphic and parametric equalization capabilities, will be another big success.”
The EQ2 Programmable EQ is a combination graphic and parametric equalizer pedal with 10 adjustable frequency bands, stereo inputs and outputs, 8 onboard presets, 128 MIDI accessible presets, 5-pin DIN input and thru jacks, and a master volume with an additional 12dB of boost. The pedal flaunts sleek, modern hardware with a crystal-clear LED screen, simple control surface, and on-the-fly preset switching capabilities.
In addition to its highly flexible onboard options, the EQ2 is compatible with Source Audio’s Neuro Mobile and Desktop Editors. The Neuro Editors provide a simple and visually comprehensive view of the parametric EQ controls (including adjustable frequency band and a Q controls) as well as an optional dynamic limiter, noise gate, alternate signal routing options, and the ability to simultaneously run two discrete EQ presets (one for each stereo output).
The pedal also includes a USB port for connecting to the Neuro Desktop Editor or receiving MIDI program change (PC) and continuous controller (CC) messages from a digital audio workstation (DAW). The EQ2’s 1/8” CONTROL INPUT jack connects with either the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal or Source Audio’s Neuro Hub. The Neuro Hub smoothly incorporates the EQ2 into the greater Source Audio ecosystem.
The street price of EQ2 is $269 USD. Source Audio expects to ship the product in March.
