Source Audio Marks the Release of the Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter by Giving Away a Pedal Per Hour at Summer NAMM

 

Boston, MA – Source Audio, the multiple award winning guitar effects pedal innovators, will be celebrating the release of their new Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter by giving away one pedal each hour to visitors of their NAMM booth #312 on Wanna Play Saturday July 23rd.  The BEF Pro is the latest addition to the company’s expanding line of bass effects.
The schedule of the giveaway on July 23rd is as follows:
11 am – Soundblox Classic Distortion
12 pm – Soundblox Tri-Mod Flanger
1 pm – Soundblox Tri-Mod Phaser
2 pm – Soundblox Tri-Mod Wah
3 pm – Soundblox Multiwave Distortion
4 pm – Wireless Hot Hand Wah
5 pm – Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter
The winners of each hour’s giveaway will be announced on the Source Audio Facebook Page and Twitter Feed @sourceaudiofx.  Participants must submit their email addresses at the Source Audio NAMM booth to be eligible for each drawing.
The BEF Pro builds on the wildly popular Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter with a wide array of features for the touring professional.  With the BEF Pro each filter type can be modulated by four distinct sources: envelope, tap tempo enabled LFO, Hot Hand™, or an expression pedal wah.  The BEF Pro also boasts an impressive set of tweak-able options including an adjustable 7-band graphic EQ, 6 save-able preset banks, 8 different LFO waveforms, adjustable positive and negative filter sweeps and a Wet/Dry Mix knob to the interface featuring Source Audio's signature Lo-Retain™ mixing algorithm. 
 
Phish bassist Mike Gordon added the Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter to his touring rig in early June (joining the Multiwave Bass Distortion Pro).  Speaking of the BEF he said, "I've had a eureka experience with the Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter.  It is the first unit with enough control to preserve the low-end without sacrificing clarity."  Source Audio’s positive impact on Mike’s bass tone is a frequent topic online.
Now widely acclaimed for bringing innovation into the world of guitar effects pedals, Source Audio was founded in January 2005 by former engineers, scientists, and executives of Analog Devices, Kurzweil Music Systems, and Thomas H. Lee Partners. Since the 2006 release of its flagship product, the Hot Hand motion-sensing ring, Source Audio’s distortion, modulation and Hot Hand products have been recognized through multiple awards from Guitar Player, Guitar World, Bass Player, and Premier Guitar Magazines.  
Street Price for the Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter is $219.  It is available July 20th.  For more about the Soundblox effects pedals and to view video demos, visit www.sourceaudio.net or call Source Audio directly at 781.932.8080.
