Source Audio's One Series range covers all the needs of today's guitar and bass players. In any quality line up, you need a Drive pedal, for Source Audio, it's called the LA Lady! Inside this very pretty case in brushed aluminum with a shimmering color, hides 50 years of pure Marshallesque sound! What can commonly be called a “Marshall in a box” pedal.
Source Audio uses the same platform implemented with the Nemesis, the Ventris and others… to create this superb and overpowered machine capable of delivering a variety of sounds ranging from boost to distortion metal.
The assembly is perfect, the compact format and the handling very intuitive. Inside, there are high quality PCBs. At Source Audio it's not joking, the brand wants to be at the forefront of audio technologies, the architecture used offering computing power and processing quality that very few brands benefit from.
The Source Audio LA Lady is: 3 types of on board overdrive, 3 presets, stereo in & out which, as we will see below, is incredibly flexible. You can also increase the power of the pedal tenfold by using the Neuro Mobile application which is full of additional settings and possibilities.
Concretely, it is a war machine! It's not just an ordinary versatile OD pedal. Imagine, through the Neuro app, you can access a huge collection of additional drives, fuzzes, and distortions with extensive parametric EQ capabilities, stereo routing options, and advanced internal features.
For example, you can combine several drives in series or parallel, split the signal on each output and send each distortion engine to a specific output. Impressive!
And the sound in all this? The pedal sweeps through everything from clean boost to heavy high gain distortion and everything in between. The different drives are precise, dynamic, perfectly clean with the volume knob and modulate perfectly according to your attack and your playing nuances. By pushing the gain you can generate massive distortions, which associated with the parametric settings of the pedal, will allow you to send very big, even in the most extreme styles, all with a breath always under control.
The Source Audio LA Lady is a real Swiss army knife that will save you the day, whatever style you play. The concept is formidable, the flexibility enormous, the possibilities almost infinite via the application, and its sound signature particularly additive. All for one of the most attractive prices!
