The Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator is a super-compact, durable, and highly flexible multi-effects pedal with a dynamic collection of precision-engineered phaser, flanger, chorus, and tremolo effects. Twelve effect types, nine adjustable parameters, plus internal or external modulation control, emphatically elevate this micro-monster well beyond the sonic limitations of traditional modulation pedals.

The Orbital Modulator's rack-mount power delivers endless modulation possibilities including multi-voiced choruses, through zero flange, rotary speaker simulation, variable notch phasers and much more. Its nine adjustable parameters include DEPTH, FEEDBACK, DELAY, FREQUENCY, VOLUME, LoRETAIN, TREMOLO, MIX, and SPEED.

Control modulation either internally or externally: sine and square wave LFO plus forward and reverse Envelope Followers offer vibrant internal modulation, while the pedal's compatibility with MIDI control signals, the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal, or any of our Hot Hand motion sensor rings provides precise external control. Once you've dialed in the perfect sound, save it one of two user presets easily recalled via two footswitches. The unit also comes with a 9VDC power supply.

  • Compact, cast aluminum housing.

Comments about Source Audio Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator:

Most Versatile & Best Sounding Modulator Pedal on Plant Earth. I play bass and have never used an effects processor because of the coloration and artificial sound. Not to offend, but all the Boss effects are artificial and thin sounding for bass. I tried this pedal after a recommendation to help diversify the tone of a 3 piece band playing mostly Latin rock, blues rock and smooth jazz. Thus I did not want a obnoxious modulation effect. I watched the Orbital Modulator Bass youtube video prior to purcahse, thus was ready to go when the pedal arrived. The tune-able parameters usability is intuitive, the variations are subtle but distinct as you turn the knobs. I created 2 presets in less than 20 minutes that I am still using them weeks later, (the Resonator 1 and Vibe selection on the wheel). The 2 presets means you get 2 pedals effectively for the price. Overall, simply a brilliant design. Subtle, transparent, moderate or in your face tuning options. A great value with the 2 presets. Order placed on Sunday arrived on Thursday from Guitar Center on line.

Comments about Source Audio Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator:

My signal chain is an American deluxe HSS strat into a wampler pinnacle deluxe into the orbital modulator into a Blackstar HT-20 with a digitech digital delay in the fx loop. When I tried the orbital modulator in the fx loop it didn't sound good at all so I moved it in front of the amp and it sounds great.
i watched countless videos on this unit before buying it and was definitely not disappointed. It has a wide variety of sounds and deep editing functions to help dial them in to your own taste. I was looking for a flange/resonator sound similar to Kenny Wayne Shepherd's sound on the song Riverside and was able to get very close.
I highly recommend reading the manual, maybe twice, and downloading their sheet of presets. It was really helpful for me to use as a starting point.
My only nit pick is that it only stores two sounds, but then I don't need that many different chorus sounds and if I do I can just adjust the knobs. All in all, It's a good pedal for the price.
