Source Audio Collider

Post by fuzzjunkie » Sun Feb 09, 2020 8:29 am

Anyone try one yet?

I just recently found out about this box. After linking a Source Audio Nemesis in another post, this should up in my Facebook feed. Funny how that happens.

https://www.sourceaudio.net/collider_delay_reverb.html

I have thought about getting a Source Audio Nemesis a few times, but don’t really need one. I have thought about getting a Nano board and putting on a fuzz or two, modulation, and a Nemesis for the delay. What about reverb though? Do I really need it? There’s not room for a Ventris or similar reverb pedal. Hmmm?

Now I don’t have that problem anymore because the Collider solves it! It has the delays and reverbs that I want all in one pedal and you can have the delay or reverb active without the other, and even double up the delays for rhythmic echoes or reverb for ambient reverb into reverb. All with a simple layout, tap and subdivisions

Not dirty/funky sounding enough for my application.

Yes. The Collider has 2 separate algorithms and can do delay + delay, delay + reverb, or reverb + reverb. They can also be run independently, only delay or only reverb.

Yeah, Source Audio go for the more realistic sounds. The tape delay sounds like a real Echoplex that you’ll find in a studio rather than one that’s been sitting in a barn since it fell out of the back of a pickup truck.

The Oil Can delay has a nice smear and grime to it, but then again, it sounds like one that is still in working order. There is an analog delay setting that is the only one I have heard that actually sounds like a Memoryman, most seem to go all diffuse or murky. I would get a Meet Maude by Fairfield Circuitry if I was after that.

Basically I want the Catalinbread version of this pedal.

I was looking for a delay + reverb combo pedal for a small board. I wanted the following options:

- seperate on/off buttons for delay and reverb
- built in tap tempo
- relatively small box
- simple operation

To my suprise there's not so many options. Apart from the Collider, the only other options I've found are the Keeley Workstation Delay and the Nux Atlantic (which I had for a while, loved the concept, but the sounds were mediocre).

All the others (EQD Avalanche Run, Keeley Caverns, Fender Reflecting Pool, Mooer Ocean Machine, ...) either don't have tap tempo, don't have seperate on/off buttons for delay and reverb or are quite big for a small set up.

The Collider looks awesome but I don't like the pricetag.

I hope more brands will jump on this wagon and make delay+reverb combo's. It seems like a no brainer to me.
