Source Audio Launches Atlas Compressor Pedal

Source Audio Atlas Compressor PedalSource Audio has rolled out another pedal with the Atlas Compressor, a flexible circuit that utilizes their Neuro Desktop Editor and mobile app to offer an array of compression designs.

“Atlas offers a comprehensive collection of compression circuits that perfectly capture the tone and feel of the industry’s most sought-after compressors,” they state. “Straight out of the box the pedal offers six different styles of compression, ranging from sounds based on classic stompbox compressors like the now-discontinued Diamond Optical Compressor to high-end rack units like the snappy 1176 Compressor and the smooth and luxurious LA2A Optical Compressor. Atlas also features advanced dual-band compression, which provides an independent set of controls for both the high and low frequencies. Each compression engine has onboard controls for Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, Output, Tone, and Mix, allowing for fine-tuned control over the compact One Series hardware.”

Importantly, Source Audio adds a bass preset mode to optimize its sounds for the low end. Simply hold down the control button on power up to give you bass-tuned presets.
