Nashville, TN, June 13, 2008 — Source Audio, creators of the award winning* Hot Hand® Motion Control Wah Filter and Phaser/Flanger systems, is pleased to announce that it is currently shipping its new line of Soundblox effects pedals.
As a special offer during the initial shipments, Source Audio will provide a free Hot Hand wired sensor pack with the Soundblox Wah, Phaser and Flanger while supplies last.
The popular Soundblox Multiwave Distortion gives guitarists 21 unique and modern distortion effects that cover an unusually wide range from classic electronic sounds to aggressive synth-like, octave heavy and extreme foldback settings that go far beyond typical emulations of existing distortions.
Guitarist Chuck Garvey of moe., the first to use the Soundblox Multiwave enthused, "I love the Soundblox Distortion! It’s a chunky, creamy, tweaker’s dream. The high gain is dense with lots of sustain…Super flexible and easy to use."
Other early adopters for Soundblox pedals include guitarists Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss, and bassist Ryan Stasik of Umphrey’s McGee, Jon Gutwillig of Disco Biscuits, and Carl Harvery of Toots and the Maytalls.
In the multi band mode, the Multiwave Distortion pedal divides the input signal into multiple frequency bands, which are then separately distorted before being recombined. This enables guitarists to play complex distorted chords while each note can be heard with exceptional clarity.
Based on the Hot Hand Wah Filter and Hot Hand Phaser/Flanger effects systems, the new Soundblox Tri-Mod Wah, Tri-Mod Flanger and Tri-Mod Phaser pedals each offer 11 different effects that feature the same high quality sounds as their predecessors. The effects on these products can be modulated by either a Hot Hand motion sensor, an LFO or an Envelope Follower.
All Soundblox effects feature state-of-the-art 56-bit DSP co-developed with Analog Devices, Inc. and crystal clear 24-bit A/D D/A converters for exceptional sound quality.
- MSRP for the Soundblox pedals is $149.99.
- MSRP for the Hot Hand Wireless Adapter & Controller is $150.
- MSRP for the Hot Hand Wired Controller is $24.95
Source Audio LLC, a new technology enterprise founded by former executives of Analog Devices, Inc. and the world of private equity is bringing yet another revolutionary idea in effects control and processing to the music industry.
