The new Ultrawave Multiband Processor from Source Audio combines overdrive, fuzz, tremolo, compression, noise gate, and more, into a new kind of sound structure. The effects device is available in two versions – one for guitar and one for bass.
Source Audio Ultrawave Multiband Processor
The Source Audio Ultrawave Multiband Processor embarks on an exciting expedition into the expanded potential of overdrive and tremolo, exploring a previously unheard spectrum of sounds. At the heart of the Ultrawave is its multiband processing. This means the incoming signal of a guitar, bass, or synthesizer is divided into several discrete frequency bands, after which each band can be modified with its own set of adjustable parameters.
In the case of overdrive, for example, each individual band can be provided with separate drive and output level settings. The result is a thick and rich distortion with lots of overtones and dynamic interplay. The possibilities are immense: you can split the signal into 1, 2, 3, 4, 8 or 10 frequency bands with different overdrive types, including tube, diode, foldback (a distortion method often heard in the world of synthesizers), Octave Up, Negative Flip Diode and more.
For guitar and bass
Source Audio has been refining its multiband processing for over a decade. This latest pedal release is available in two separate versions – one for guitar and one for bass. The controls on the top have been slightly adjusted for each instrument. But, as is so often the case, you basically only achieve the full potential via the Neuro Desktop Editor (Mac and Windows) or the mobile app (iOS and Android). There you can tweak sounds down to the smallest detail, manage presets, load them into the cloud, and swap them with others.
Here are some of the features at a glance:
- 37 different tape splitting options
- 44 different distortion types
- Dual channel compressor/expander
- Stereo ins and outs
- Detailed LFO functions
