Some new distortions to check out. Below is an excerpt from the Source Audio press release.
For the sonic explorer, the Soundblox Pro Multiwave Distortion offers 23 distinctive and modern effect types. What makes the Multiwave unique is its use of multi-band processing, which offers a clear distortion with unprecedented note articulation. Sounds range from basic tones to aggressive synth-like, octave heavy, and extreme foldback effects that go far beyond traditional distortions. The pedal is used on tour by artists ranging from Chuck Garvey of moe. to Brad Whitford of Aerosmith to Reeve Gabrels.
For the vintage guitar tone enthusiast, the Soundblox Pro Classic Distortion features 4 tube amp and 8 fuzz box overdrive tones in the same powerful control format as the Pro Multiwave. The sounds are organic and enormously customizable via pre- and post-mid control drives and the EQ. Unlike other products, which attempt to digitally clone, model, or emulate vintage gear, the Pro Classic is the result of a five-year listening study and iterative algorithm design process involving over 40 classic pedals and extensive artist evaluation.
