Source Audio Unveils the Spectrum Intelligent Filter Pedal

Source Audio Spectrum Intelligent Filter PedalHot on the heels of their C4 Synth pedal, Source Audio has introduced the Spectrum Intelligent Filter, which they call an “all-in-one filter extravaganza.”

Similar to the C4, the Spectrum comes with six envelope sounds accessed via a three-position toggle switch and two preset banks. It has four knobs to control eight parameters: Input Level, Envelope Sensitivity, Filter Depth, Wet/Dry Mix, Frequency, Resonance (a.k.a. “Q”), Envelope Speed, and Output Volume. It has stereo inputs and outputs, 56-bit signal processing, and a compact anodized aluminum housing.

The Spectrum goes much deeper than six sounds with its presets and Source Audio’s Neuro Hub, Neuro Desktop Editor, and Neuro Mobile App. In the apps, you can find a diverse library of presets or create and tweak your own.

“We have already created many legendary filter pedals,” said Source Audio President Roger Smith. “I told Bob Chidlaw I wanted the undisputed greatest stereo filter pedal of all time. He not only did that with Spectrum, but he included up and down octaves, drives, and LFO to create an all-in-one filter extravaganza that is appropriate for all types of players.”
