Source Audio President Roger Smith Talks About Developing the Perfect FX Pedal.
How do you balance the vision of engineering "artists" with the wants and needs of real performing musicians? Roger Smith, the President of Source Audio, recently sat down with Alec Lee of The Gear Page to talk about how listening to musicians on gear forums is crucial to the development of Source Audio guitar and bass effects pedals: "You really need to allow engineering artists to have a certain amount of latitude to bring their ideas to life. I think it's always a good idea to give the technical creators in your company a certain amount of leeway in developing their ideas... and then allow their ideas to then percolate throughout the forums to get feedback before eventually turning them into a product."
Check out this sneak peek video of our still-in-development C4 Synthesizer. This power-house pedal is a 4-voiced "modular synth in box" with serious envelope filter possibilities. Head over to The Gear Page and join the conversation about the development process.
