Source Audio Effects
Without a doubt, the crown jewel in Source Audio's lineup is the Hot Hand 3 Universal Wireless Effects Controller. If you want your tone to literally react to your physical performance, this is the device to do it. The simple explanation of Hot Hand is that it translates movement into an expression pedal signal. You can put the sensor on your hand, foot or even on the instrument itself, so you've got no shortage of options to blur the line between motion and sound. Of course, if you'd rather go the traditional route, Source Audio offers a classic dual expression pedal as well!
As far as stompboxes go, when you'd like top-quality effects, you don't need to look any further than Source Audio's Soundblox series. These run all the way from tried-and-true effects like wah-wah and distortion to more advanced units like the Orbital Modulator and OFD microModeler Bass Effects Pedal. You'll also notice that in many cases, such as the Bass Envelope Filter, Source Audio gives you the choice between standard and "Pro" versions. The differences between these depend on the pedal in question, but you can sum it up pretty easily by saying the Pro units give you more. That is to say: more options, more customizability, and simply more control over your tone than even the already-impressive base versions. You can't go wrong one way or the other - it's all about choosing the level that suits you best.
When effects unit makers get an adventurous streak, we all win. In light of that, Source Audio effects can certainly be called a victory for every artist with discerning tastes in their pedals. Whether you opt for classics like filters, flangers, phasers and reverb or get a little more daring with the Hot Hand 3, the first thing you can count on is being impressed when you take these units for a test jam.
