Source Audio's One Series range covers all the needs of today's guitar and bass players. The range benefited until then from a good number of effects, but what would it be without a quality EQ? It's done with the EQ2 Programmable Equalizer.
Inside this very pretty brushed aluminum case with a shimmering color hides a premium parametric EQ that will make everyone agree!
Source Audio uses the same platform set up with the Nemesis, the Ventris and others… to create this superb and overpowered machine which is undoubtedly one of the best references of its kind.
After many years of good and loyal service having ended up on various pedalboards such as those of David Gilmour and John Mayer, the EQ1 bows out and is replaced by its version 2. So what is the EQ2? Programmable Equalizer brings more? Well… Everything! Because the two versions frankly have nothing more in common, the gap being just huge! The Source Audio EQ2 is one of the most powerful EQs on the market, and certainly the most complete in pedal format. This vastly updated version benefits from a fully adjustable 10-band graphic/parametric EQ, stereo inputs and outputs, MIDI In and Thru, 4 or 8 built-in presets, 128 accessible MIDI presets, a 12 dB boost and the ability to route two separate effects to either stereo output. The icing on the cake is a built-in tuner function, ideal for saving space on your pedalboard.
The EQ2 is the ideal companion for any musician looking for precision and versatility within their rig. Not just for guitar, but for any electric instrument. With its powerful EQ, you can move each of the 10 bands to any point in the frequency spectrum from 20 to 20,000 Hz. With its ultra-precisely adjustable +/-18 dB boost / cut per band, its flexible routing, its unique stereo design, a noise gate, an optional limiter mode and its full integration with the Neuro application, the EQ2 is a veritable Swiss army knife of the genre.
With this new EQ, Source Audio has pushed the integration of the Neuro Desktop and its mobile application to the maximum. The EQ2's front-panel controls are ideal for shaping your sound in a unique way, compared to traditional effects pedals. But connect it to the Neuro Desktop Editor and the mobile app (via the USB port) and access a set of features usually associated only with high-end rack-mount equipment. Neuro Editor's logical and user-friendly interface includes detailed parametric editing capabilities (Q factor and frequency shift) for all 10 frequency bands, two-channel stereo options, noise gate and limiter, and a extensive interaction with the control possibilities available via an expression pedal. Best of all, you can share all these settings and presets with the community.
In situation, the EQ2 proves to be extremely musical, silent (big problem of many EQs on the market) and of a formidable flexibility. Its frequency range of 31Hz to 16kHz and its 10 bands allow you to adjust your settings with nuance. The interface is ultra intuitive and is done with a single button.
In the end, the Source Audio EQ2 is a serious competitor to the Free The Tone 10 Band EQ and easily dominates the competitors in the sector. She is a real Swiss army knife for all guitarists and bassists. The concept is formidable, the flexibility enormous, the possibilities almost infinite via the application, and its sound signature particularly addictive. All for one of the most attractive prices!
