Designed for electric guitar players, the Source Audio Collider Delay+Reverb Pedal offers 12 stereo effects in one relatively small enclosure. These effects vary from reverb to delay, depending on which effect you select.
Each effect has been chosen from two venerated Source Audio pedals: the Nemesis Delay and the Ventris Dual Reverb pedal. Dual footswitches allow you to engage or bypass both the delay and reverb sections independently, effectively making this two pedals in one enclosure. You can even change the order of operations using compatible MIDI controllers, so you can choose whether to feed delay into reverb or the reverb into the delay.
The pedal will allow you to access anything from real-world plate verbs to reverse delays and shimmering, octavized sounds. Though the Collider offers a 56-bit internal data path with 24-bit audio conversion, analog-dry through preserves your analog signal. Select among true bypass, buffered bypass, or soft-bypass circuitries for when you want the pedal disengaged.
The pedal offers a stereo 1/4" instrument path for true stereo implementation. With 3.5mm and 1/4" control inputs, you can interface with a variety of external controllers. MIDI and USB connections allow for even greater control, and help you use the included Neural Desktop and Mobile applications to their full effect. These applications allow for deep editing, preset sharing, and more. A power supply is included with the pedal.
FX Engines Explained
Hall Reverb: Patterned after the lush sounds of studio rack units from the 80s, the Hall engine is distinguished by its highly diffuse tones and glorious blooming characteristic.
True Spring Reverb: Source Audio's Chief Scientist, Bob Chidlaw, worked long and hard to perfectly capture the sweet idiosyncrasies of a vintage spring reverb tank. The result is an exceptionally realistic effect with the unmistakable drip characteristic heard in vintage spring-reverb-equipped amplifiers.
Plate Reverb: This authentic sounding reverb engine is a spot-on simulation of the highly diffuse effect synonymous with vintage plate reverb units of the 50s and 60s.
Shimmer Reverb: This pitch-shifting reverb engine mixes traditional room sounds with octave-up reflections for an angelic reverb effect.
E-Dome Reverb: The cavernous E-Dome (a.k.a. Enormo-Dome) produces long, lush reverb trails that linger for days. Invoke the sound of massive, arena settings with the Ventris Reverb's largest room simulation. This one is huge.
Swell Reverb: Creates smooth, amorphous volume swells. This engine applies a volume swell effect to your instrument's dry signal, which is then fed into the reverb effect for super-long and ambient clouds of sound. This effect is great for creating soft, atmospheric chord pads.
Digital Delay: Pristine and unfiltered digital repeats.
Analog Delay: This delay engine reproduces the characteristic dark sound of bucket-brigade analog delays.
Tape Delay: A detailed recreation of classic moving-head tape delays. Repeats are bandwidth limited and have artifacts characteristic of tape delay, such as filtering, preamp saturation, noise, wow and flutter.
Reverse Delay: A classic reverse tape sound that became popular in 60s psychedelic rock. The Tone knob can create several overlapping reversed delays that fade in and fade out regularly to create a pulsing tremolo effect.
Oil Can Delay: This dark, jangly, warbling, and distorted delay is inspired by old oil-can impluse responses that previously appeared in the Extended Delay Engines on the Nemesis.
Dual Processing: 2 independent processors essentially providing two high-powered pedals in a single enclosure.
Analog Dry Through: When utilizing either delay or reverb, your signal still has an analog dry-through path.
Universal Bypass: Select among true bypass, buffered bypass, or soft bypass with reverb trails. The Collider features high-quality signal relays for true bypass and transparent buffers for analog bypass.
Compact Design: The extruded anodized aluminum housing, with its slim profile and small footprint, is built for the rigors of the road.
128 Presets: Save your favorite sounds with the touch of a button. Save up to 8 presets, recallable with the pedal’s onboard controls, plus a total of 128 presets, recallable with an external MIDI controller.
Dual Delay or Reverb Control Set: The Neuro Mobile App and Neuro Desktop Editor provide access to unlock either side of the pedal, giving you access to the opposite side regardless of the switch position, meaning it is possible to use Collider as a Dual Delay pedal or a Dual Reverb pedal, and switch the order of the effects.
Tap Tempo: Tap in the delay time with the onboard tap tempo switch. Beat divisions include quarter notes, dotted eigth, and triplets.
Reverb Hold Mode: Hold or freeze your reverb trail by holding down the Reverb switch when reverb is engaged to create a massive, ambient wall of sound, or a pad to play on top.
Knobs Lock Switch: Flip the Knobs switch to the center position to lock your controls in place, protecting your settings from accidental bumps in a live setting.
Complete MIDI Functionally: Send MIDI program change (PC), continuous controller (CC), or MIDI clock messages via the 5-pin MIDI DIN Input (also includes a MIDI Thru jack) or the USB port.
Expression Control: Easily configure the Collider to work with a variety of expression pedals and footswitches for various external control options.
Discover Knob Positions: Ever wondered where the knobs were set in another preset? With the Knobs Action After function, you can discover these knob positions by rotating the knob until you see the Control LED flash.
MIDI Clock: Sync your delay time with external MIDI clock messages.
MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) Messages: Control multiple knob parameters simultaneously with MIDI CC messages. Program your CC messages to control any combination of knob parameters (as well as output level) and map an independent depth and direction path for each.
USB Port: Send MIDI program change, continuous controller, and clock messages to Collider via its USB port.
Multi Pedal Scene Saving with the Neuro Hub: Connect Collider (along with up to five One Series or Soundblox 2 pedals) to the Neuro Hub and create 128 multi pedal scenes complete with expression control, recallable via MIDI program change (PC) messages.
External Expression Control: Connect the Neuro Hub to any Source Audio expression pedal, Hot Hand 3 Wireless Effects Controller or third party TRS (Tip Hot) expression pedal and assign expression control to any combination of knob parameters.
