Welcome back to the place where we talk about all things presets and all things tone, with some general Source Audio tidbits sprinkled in. Our office has been buzzing the last couple of weeks with the fervor of new pedals and exciting ideas. That's right, the lab is brimming with new ideas...we're mixing chemicals with reckless abandon, uncovering ancient artifacts, learning how covalent bonds work...
Just kidding. Well, not about the upcoming new gear, but none of us actually work in a chemical lab or in archaeology. Let's talk about the preset!
For the third week in a row, the C4 Synth takes the #1 "Most Published" spot effortlessly. In a distant second places the Ventris, the OG of the in-depth preset creation game. As my sentimental favorite Neuro-equipped pedal, it's always uplifting to see it still holding its own coming up on five years after its release.
For fourth place, there was actually a four-way tie: the Nemesis Delay, Lunar Phaser, Ultrawave, and Ultrawave Bass all came in with 6 presets a piece under this span. How I like to approach tiebreakers in this circumstance is with recency bias; the pedal or pedals with the most recent preset gets the top spot.
The average new daily new Neuro users has steadily improved since last installation as well! Last update, we calculated an average of 23 new users per day. Over this 18-day span, 490 new users signed up for Neuro, leaving us with an average of 27-28 new users each day. Welcome aboard, new Neuro users, and thanks for discovering Source Audio!
