Source Audio Introduces Lunar Phaser, Gemini Chorus, and Mercury Flanger Pedals

After teasing them earlier this year, Source Audio has officially released the Gemini Chorus, Lunar Phaser, and Mercury Flanger. The pedals, which are part of the One Series, are designed to have a streamlined surface with three effect flavors, but can be tweaked down to the nitty gritty using the Source Audio Neuro Mobile App. The app allows for tapping into the pedal for an additional set of adjustable parameters, bonus effect algorithms, and the ability to save, download and share presets.

The Lunar Phaser provides three distinct phaser styles – Vibe, Classic, and Multi – that are toggled via a three-way mini-switch. Each effect is dialed in with Depth, Speed, Resonance and Shape knobs. Shape morphs the LFO wave shape from a smooth sine wave to a more aggressive square wave. With the Neuro App, users can adjust the Frequency (the center point of the modulation), Output Level, embeddable Tremolo, Low Retain, a Parametric EQ, Advanced Signal Routing and more.

The Mercury Flanger has Classic, Thru-Zero (aka “Tape Flange”) and Shadow modes. Thru-Zero operation delivers the distinguishable twisting effect that occurs when the dry and modulating signals reach their intersection point, while Shadow mode “offers a highly resonant yet silky smooth tone, with the jet engine ‘whoosh’ all flange fanatics crave.” Neuro App controls include Wet/Dry Mix, Output Level, Tremolo, a Parametric EQ, Lo Retain, Advanced Signal Routing, and more.

Finally, the Gemini Chorus offers Dual, Classic, and Quad styles of chorus effects. It has Depth, Speed, Mix, and Tone controls on its surface with the Neuro App offering an extended set of adjustable parameters including Feedback, Output Level, embeddable Tremolo, a Parametric EQ, Advanced Signal Routing and more.

Each of the pedals has stereo inputs and outputs, universal bypass, expression control, and tap tempo capabilities. Source Audio also notes that utilizing their Neuro Hub (formerly the Soundblox Hub) gives you MIDI capability and the power to save up to 128 presets.

The Source Audio Lunar Phaser, Gemini Chorus, and Mercury Flanger are available now with street prices of $149.
