The Source Audio Programmable EQ is a thoroughly modern and highly streamlined upgrade to traditional equalizer pedals. This MIDI controllable stompbox provides quick, hands-free access to four different user programmed EQ settings. It has found its way onto the touring pedalboards of David Gilmour, John Mayer, Steven Wilson, The Killers, The Dierks Bentley Band, and more. Whatever your instrument, playing style, or genre, the Source Audio Programmable EQ is the essential tone-sculpting tool for your live rig.
The Programmable EQ packs plus or minus 18dB of range over seven frequency bands, plus an additional frequency band at 62Hz, accessible via the Octave Extend function. Engaging the Octave Extend systematically optimizes the pedal’s frequency spectrum to accommodate the specific frequency range of the bass. The pedal also offers a substantial clean boost of up to 12dB. Use the clean boost for an entirely transparent volume increase or give your amp the front-end push needed for an aggressive natural break-up. Once you've dialed in the desired guitar or bass tone, save it in one of four programmable user presets. Each preset is easily accessible via the hands-free footswitch scrolling function. Simply hold down the footswitch and let the pedal scroll through each preset at an adjustable rate — release to engage. The pedal’s MIDI input also provides remote access for switching presets, controlling parameters, and engaging/bypassing the effect.
