After years of releasing multi-award winning guitar and bass effects, Source Audio has taken another significant step forward with the creation of the Soundblox 2 series. The new line of effects pedals boasts a variety of advanced features in a compact, rugged, cast-aluminum housing.

The company is releasing three new products in the Soundblox 2 format. The first two are Source Audio’s award-winning Multiwave Distortions available in both guitar and bass models. The third is Source Audio’s new Dimension Reverb, created by legendary effects engineer, Bob Chidlaw. It features twelve unique reverb sounds and a range of useful controls.

All Soundblox 2 pedals feature Universal Bypass™ (selectable buffered or true bypass), two user presets, precision 56-bit signal processing, and a multi-function input that supports MIDI, expression pedal, or Hot Hand® control. All of this packed into a cast-aluminum housing with a super-compact 4” by 4” footprint. The MSRP for the Soundblox 2 series is expected to be $239. They will be available in the first quarter of 2012.

SoundRoom: Source Audio Soundblox Multiwave Distortion

RELATIVE NEWCOMERS SOURCE AUDIO made an initial splash with its Hot Hand technology, which pairs proprietary “motion controller ring technology” with effects so that hand movements are translated into real-time control over effect parameters. It’s fairly sensational and fun, but certainly of limited use to those of use not inclined to wave our hands around mid bass line. Honestly, I initially thought the Hot Hand represented Source Audio’s main contribution to the effects landscape; a cool idea that definitely was not for me. But after spending some quality time with the Soundblox Multiwave Distortion (in its Pro and abridged incarnations), I’ve happily been reminded of the danger of hasty generalizations.
