Source Audio has released the Soundblox Hub Manager, a free companion software application for the Soundblox Hub v1.
The Soundblox Hub connects up to five of Source Audio’s Soundblox 2 effects pedals, unlocking their MIDI capabilities and turning them into a powerful multi-effects processor and switching system.
The Hub allows users to save the on/off states, knob positions, and external control assignments of each connected pedal to create up to 128 unique multi-pedal presets (or “scenes”). Simply dial in a sound with the pedals, then save the state of the entire pedal board with a single button press on the Hub. Scenes can then be recalled with any external MIDI foot-switcher or device that sends MIDI Program Change messages.
The Hub Manager makes it easy to create and edit scenes, name them, export/import scene files, and share them with other Hub owners. Continue reading
