Source Audio poured their extensive filter design expertise into the Spectrum Intelligent Filter, an incredibly powerful stereo filter pedal that delivers stunning envelope sounds to your guitar or bass rig. Packing premium envelope filter effects inspired by legendary pedals, Spectrum includes raunchy distortion as well as synth-like octave and envelope phaser options that turn it into a fully integrated, self-contained jam/funk machine. Spectrum's six meticulously crafted factory patches give you instant plug-and-play gratification. And when you're in the mood to dive deeper into sound design, connect Spectrum to Source Audio's Neuro Desktop Editor (free download for Mac and Windows) or Neuro Mobile App (free download for iOS and Android), and the sky's the limit.
Simple out of the box, deep under the hood
Out of the box, the Spectrum Intelligent Filter was designed to deliver an effortless plug-and-play experience with instant access to sounds inspired by some of the most rare and iconic envelope filter FX pedals. But Spectrum also goes deeper with an arsenal of jaw-dropping synth-like distorted octave and envelope phaser sounds. The pedal's ALT button turns Spectrum's 4-knob layout into eight distinct parameter controls.
Dial in the perfect envelope response via Spectrum's Input Gain, Sensitivity, and Speed controls. Want slow, smooth envelope movement while you dig into the strings? Or perhaps a fast-modulating filter that responds quickly to light picking — Spectrum does it all. The Frequency, Resonance, Depth, and Mix controls give you fine control over the color and character of your filter effects.
