Amazingly capable bass synth - but you need to be willing to learn
SebastianJames, 16.10.2020
The presets are a nice example of what this thing can do but, to get the best out of it, you need to be willing to learn how to use subtractive synthesis. And it is absolutely worth it!

There are plenty of presets made by other people, which you can download, and these explore yet further possibilities - from kalimba+flute, to a remarkably aggrotech-compatible growling sound. Use these as they are, or as inspiration and jumping-off points.
It will take you a very long time to reach the limits of what it can do.

The tracking is startlingly good, as long as your muting is good enough. If it's not, well, now you have a reason to work on it :)
It even keeps up with slide guitar and fretless bass!

Cons? It's _mostly_ monophonic, so your options are limited if you want to play chords through it.
However, since it's basically a Spectrum filter pedal with a synth section bolted on, you could always play a HOG2 through it...

Petite bombe de pédale synthé
CSurieux, 14.09.2019
Sortie fin aout 2019, cette pédale est un petit bijou technologique qui permet d'approcher au plus près les sons que l'on obtient avec un réel synthétiseur, mais avec les cordes d'une basse ou d'une guitare.
Le tracking (détection des sons joués) est très performant, les sons identifiés sont ensuite remodelés via 1 à 4 voies modulées par des LFO ou des filtres d'enveloppe, d'un petit séquenceur paramétrable. D'autres effets peuvent être appliqués telle de la distortion avant de passer par un mixage final qui permet de sortir en stéréo. La multitude de paramètres se gère par des manipulations astucieuses sur les boutons et switchs du boitier mais il est préférable d'utiliser l'éditeur gratuit de Source Audio téléchargeable en version MAC ou PC/Windows à partir de leur site. Une app Android/Apple existe aussi mais la multitude de paramètres est plus facile a gérer sur un écran plus large qu'un mobile.
Comme toutes les pédales Source Audio de la série One, celle-ci fonctionne avec le Neuro Hub midi Source Audio qui lui apporte tout la logique midi et la très pratique gestion des Scènes propre à Source Audio.
Le C4 contrairement aux autres pédales de format box de la série One possède 128 presets en local (les autres pédales format box n'en possèdent que 6 hors utilisation du Neuro Hub qui en apporte 128). Le passage d'un preset à l'autre se fait par commandes midi envoyée soit via le neuro hub ou par une connection usb vers un controleur Midi USB.
Source Audio continue d'apporter des améliorations au firmware de cette pédale.
De nombreuses options de routage existent pour les deux signaux en entrées jusqu'au deux sorties.
Il est même possible d'utiliser une voie pour le tracking et la seconde pour appliquer en sorte de side chain les effets de ce tracking pour générer des sons totalement nouveaux.
Source audio fournit aussi gratuitement un accès à un Cloud à partir duquel il est possible de télécharger une multitude de presets dont certains reproduisent la majorité des sons connus de type synthé et une quantité de nouveaux.
La pédale soeur du C4 est le Spectrum qui possède les mêmes couches d'enveloppe que le C4 mais pas ses facultés de travail sur les voies.
Le tracking et les enveloppes du C4 et du Spectrum peuvent fonctionner en mode accord mais sont plus adaptés au mode mono son. Les fonctions d'enveloppe intelligente permettent de procurer les mêmes effets 'simples' qu'une pédale comme la Quintessence Harmony de TC Electronic avec le support de commandes midi en plus.
