Diverse Sound Palette - Featuring 23 varieties of our unique distortion algorithms with an added CLEAN BOOST + EQ mode.
State-of-the-art DSP - Our proprietary 56-bit Digital Signal Processor, the SA601, and crystal clear 24-bit converters.
7-Band Equalizer - Ultra-precise 7-band equalizer for in-depth tone control saved per preset.
The Soundblox Multiwave Bass Distortion Pro inherits the power and clarity of the original Soundblox Multiwave Distortion and adapts it to the unique frequency range of the bass guitar. Bassists can effectively combine complex chords and intervals with distorted tones - multi band processing eliminates the mush and allows each note to ring clear and true. The pedal also features single band processing for more traditional distortion sounds. It’s the perfect pedal for both the studio and stage.Users have access to 23 modern and distinctive distortions and an additional clean boost/EQ mode. Distortion curve types range from “normal” overdrive for traditional sounds to “foldback” and “octave” for more aggressive synth-like tones. Each distortion type is further customizable via the 7-band equalizer, drive control, and separate mix knobs for clean and distorted signals. This advanced sound control alleviates the tendency for low-end reduction associated with most bass effects.Six user presets, accessible via three footswitches, assist in the speedy recall of any custom tailored sound, and a traditional expression pedal input facilitates the seamless morphing from one user preset to another. A MIDI input allows external access to presets and parameters, and, as with all Soundblox products, it is compatible with the Hot Hand ring controller.

I'm giving this 5-stars YET I ended up returning it. In the final analysis, an amazing pedal but it just wasn't a fit for me and my style. That said, many players will find this a welcome addition to their pedalboard for home, gigs and the studio.
Source has given us bass players a truly novel pedal. Well thought out and executed. Quite honestly, it is unlike every other distortion pedal for bass. Really. It has the ability to produce an incredibly wide range of sounds and tones like no other single pedal. Here is my bottom-line...
- Most importantly, know upfront that if you are looking for "traditional" OD, boost and/or fuzz capabilities this pedal doesn't go there. It doesn't replace those pedals. - It's real strength - and what it excels at - is in producing a very wide-array of synth-like tones. I've NEVER heard anything like it. Truly amazing range. You won't believe what you will hear. Sounds you've never imagined in your wildest dreams. And I might...
I just purchased the Source Audio Multiwave Bass Distortion Pro about two weeks ago and my only regret is that I didn't find it sooner. This pedal is as good as advertised but you can't realize just how versatile it is until you play with it.
This little box can get a ton of different sounds, many of which are fairly original. Source Audio calls this a "distortion" pedal, but I must warn you that if you're looking for traditional distortion, this is probably not for you. I don't know how to classify just what type of pedal the Multiwave Bass Distortion Pro is. It does distortion, but not really a traditional distortion. It does synth, but not really a traditional synth. It does octave, but not really a traditional octave. You'll have to hear the tones for yourself, but after playing with it for a few hours I quickly realized that there is not one sound the pedal can get that I wouldn't be able to find a use for.
While this is a digital pedal, it has an...
This is a very cool effect. I did not want a typical distortion but really wanted to explore the synth and envelope sounds. This effect is very well designed and has some very unique qualities that sets it apart form the "pack" of clones. I spent about a week tweaking and programing sounds for a recording session last night. The fact that I could spend this much time creating my 6 tweaked sounds pretty much says it all. I might add that the time I spent was not in trying to figure out "how" to use the pedal but in actual playing and creating sounds. You get the basic controls in about 10 minutes so you can get right to the music.
It has great flexibility and you can really tailor this to your own specific needs and playing style. I used all six presets last night and the sound was quality was awesome. I am very impressed with the engineering and quality of this effect. Also the videos on Source Audio's site are very informative and thought out. I love the fact that I can...
