A little while ago, whilst fantasising about buying some new pedals for our demo/ “playtime” system, we came across these beauties from Source Audio – COLLIDER, VENTRIS & NEMESIS …and, boy, do they deliver the goods. We have tested these badboys out with various synth & modular material, and can absolutely testify that they sound incredible! Many hours were lost running simple synth patches into the combo and disappearing into ambient soundscape land…. If you’re the kind of person who tends to put your effects at the end of your signal chain, and would prefer to have something that doesn’t run on a computer – and is physically tweakable – well it’s definitely worth considering a pedal or two..
We have also just added the TRUE SPRING REVERB, for those of you who specifically desire the sound of springs – which work exceptionally well with synthesizers – but don’t want the hassle or noise that can come with a physical reverb tank. It offers 3 different superbly-modelled spring reverbs, along with 3 types of tremolo. In stock now!

All pedals on the ONE Series – from which these are taken – can access the Neuro Desktop Editor and Neuro Mobile App, which offers additional algorithms, a useful set of hardware options, alternate routing options, and an intuitive sound editing interface for creating presets.
There is also an active online community sharing presets via the Source Audio website. And they sound amazing. Just ask Gaz & Nick from Sonicstate…or simply watch their faces while playing with the VENTRIS 😉
We have embedded a selection of YouTube videos on the relevant product pages, showing the Source Audio pedals in use with synths…but there are many more excellent demos showing them in use with guitars – some of which possibly give you a better idea of their range, due to the short, plucked nature of the source material. Just imagine them on a nice, plucked lowpass gate patch!
- TRUE SPRING REVERB – Turn on to the vintage charm of natural spring reverb coupled with pulsing tremolo. Source Audio doesn’t depend on the off-the-shelf reverb effects processors found in many modern reverb pedals, we meticulously craft every one of our proprietary effects engines and load them to high-powered, 56-bit Sigma DSP. Years of collective man-hours were put into capturing every nuance and idiosyncrasy of the spring reverb and tremolo effects from some of the music gear industry’s most iconic guitar amps and outboard gear. The result is indisputable sound quality with magnificent tonal depth and precision.
- COLLIDER Delay+Reverb – Design complex soundscapes in seconds with the Source Audio Collider Delay+Reverb. We hand-picked 12 standout delay and reverb effects from our award winning Nemesis Delay and Ventris Dual Reverb, and put them together in one compact housing with massive power and dead simple control. The Collider’s intuitive control surface makes it easy to mix-and-match any two-engine combination of delay and reverb. Dual footswitches provide individual Engage/Bypass control over each effect, making it a perfect choice for live performance.
- NEMESIS Delay – The Source Audio Nemesis Delay is the culmination of three years of intense research, listening, and engineering. The mission was to create a compact, powerful, and easy-to-use delay pedal with unrivaled tone, flexibility, and style. Nemesis offers 26 distinct effect engines ranging from vintage tape and analog delays to highly advanced pitch-shifting, reverse, filter modulating, and rhythmic delays. It also features 128 presets, multiple delay taps, a hold function, tap tempo, full MIDI control, deep editing functionality with the Neuro Mobile App, and much more.
- VENTRIS Dual Reverb – Create rich, spacious reverberations with the Source Audio Ventris Dual Reverb. The Ventris features 14 meticulously crafted reverb engines built on two completely independent 56-bit signal processors, essentially housing a matching pair of high-powered reverb pedals in a single box. The Ventris’s powerful dual processing architecture gives the pedal some serious advantages including massive processing muscle, adjustable preset spillover time, and the ability to create dual reverb effects.
