Source Audio C4 Synth Pedal

Recommended Posts

Has anyone compared the octave down sound to an OC2 yet? I'm very interested in this being able to replace several pedals (PS6, MF101, Manta possibly - depending on the peak filter options and maybe even the OC2). I use MIDI a lot playing live and a loop switcher, so there could really be a lot of scope provided I can get the signature sounds I need.

Have you tried my patches yet? I did an OC-2 ish thing, though it may not be honky enough. I used a filtered square wave. Others have used the monophonic pitch shift with a bit of filtering. 

I also posted an MF101-inspired patch.

I haven't got one yet. I'm waiting for all the excitement to die down and some longer term view to emerge. They still seem to be tweaking firmware too.

Wise.

After listening back to my FI patches I know the C4 can’t touch these sounds with its limited envelope control. I hope Source Audio take heed and put better envelope shaping options in in a future update.

Also, now @GisserD has sold his Enzo, I can reinstate my assertion that the C4 kicks its butt due to its being cheaper and more fully-featured.

The Enzo programming on the fly ability kicks ALL synth pedals to the dirt tho.

Definitely an important feature!

I suspect the incoming Boss SY-1 is going to make that easier still for those of us not inclined to have to resort to deep PC editing each time we want to tweak our synth sound.

You can't program the sy1. Only ajust predefined parameters.

And that's exactly what I love about it! 😎 

121 very easy to access presets should just about be enough to find two or three I really like...

That is very true. Also, the filter sounds wonderful.

You can get that with C4 too. You can assign almost any two parameters (hopefully soon to be four) to the control knobs so can have whatever variations you like within a preset. Furthermore, you can assign up to three other parameters to external control (expression, hot hand or whatever), and specify a high and low range limit for each. So deep editing isn’t needed. Pretty much all the presets I’ve programmed so far take advantage of this. 

@GisserD have you tried any of mine yet?

You can program the Chunk Octavius Squeezer on the fly too, but you need to seriously understand synthesis to do so.

Yes, but it’s menu-based as opposed to having direct control via knobs.

I have flicked through a couple. Very nice! I'm hoping to spend more time playing next week.

I’m torn now. I think I’m going to get back on programming some more Future Impact patches as I need to do some serious bug testing. Though I might try a few C4 patches too.
