Extremely versatile effects with extraordinary sound quality

Matt173, 31.08.2014
Sonically superb modulation effects whatever your musical genre.

However, it's not going to get an award for good design!

The user interface is somewhat quirky but once you get the hang of it it's ok. As you rotate the dial or select the two saved presets obviously the knobs don't reflect the values of the parameters saved so there is a feature whereby if you zero the knobs then select the preset and rotate a knob the led flashes rapidly when the knob gets to the position of the value saved. However if you make any adjustment you lose the ability to discover the position of another knob without going through this procedure again. Why not just make it so any new positioning of the centre knob invokes the discovery feature?

I have also several times, with a combination of button pushes that still elude me, managed to lose the led indicator on the central knob so that even selecting a preset with the footswitches doesn't show which effect is selected. The only way I could get out of this was to power off on. Maybe there is a firmware bug. I would note also that the only way of updating the firmware if one becomes available is via midi but to use midi requires the purchase of another source audio hub device. This seems somewhat short sited marketing. Great for Source Audio but do they think users won't figure this out?!!

You have to be careful operating the foot switches as they are very close to the two lower knobs. If you catch the knobs with your foot you might get a radically different sound to the one you had expected!

Despite the above I think this one is a keeper because it just sounds so good and the modulation possibilities are limitless.

14 months on the right hand foot switch fell to pieces so now it's useless. I'm mortified as I'm not 'heavy footed' and always look after my gear. Now adjusted to 2 stars for quality :(
