  • Source Audio One Series L.A. Lady Overdrive

    Inside the L.A. Lady Overdrive's compact housing live the archetypal tones of over 50 years of overdrive and fuzz technology. Out of the box the pedal features three amazing overdrive tones including the sought after “Marshall in a box” sound, an punchy drive synonymous with contemporary Texas blues, and a tube amp inspired engine that delivers a range of drive levels, from warm and chunky low gain to screaming lead gain. Connect the L.A. Lady to the Neuro Desktop Editor or Nuero Mobile App (free downloads iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows) and access a massive collection of additional overdrive, fuzz and distortion tones with extended parametric EQ capabilities, stereo routing options, and internal stacking functionality.

    The L.A. Lady is the culmination of an eight-year study of classic overdrive tones combined with contemporary, highly-sophisticated technology - it is an overdrive pedal of unrivaled reach and tone.​ The pedal's dual drive engines and stereo inputs and outputs make it possible (via the Neuro App) to stack any combination of drive engines in either series or parallel as well as split the signal and send a separate drive engine to each of the pedal’s outputs.

    Job one in the development of the Source Audio One Series overdrive pedals - The L.A. Lady Overdrive, Kingmaker Fuzz, and Aftershock Bass Distortion – was to create three great sounding, flexible, and easy-to-use pedals. Out of the box, that’s exactly what they are – plug ‘em in, select from the three onboard overdrive engines and make beautiful music… simple. But there is much more here than meets the eye (and ear) - the truly “Big Idea” behind our One Series overdrive pedals was to give musicians a second, far deeper, set of options and editing tools with which to craft the perfect tone. The Neuro Desktop Editor and Mobile App are free downloads for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows machines. The Neuro Editors vastly expand the tonal possibilities of the pedals, offering a huge collection of additional drive, fuzz, and distortion engines as well as an expanded set of editing parameters.

    Source Audio One Series L.A. Lady Overdrive Features:

    Pedal Features

    • 3 Distinct Overdrive Engines.
    • 3 Presets — use Preset Mode to save a different preset to each of the three toggle switch positions. When the pedal is engaged, all of the parameters instantly jump to their saved value, regardless of the knob positions.
    • Stereo Input and Output Jacks — Distort upstream stereo signals, split a mono signal to dual outputs, or use the additional in and out as an external effects loop.
    • Stackable Drive Engines — Dual drive engines and stereo inputs and outputs make it possible (via the Neuro App) to stack any combination of drive engines in either series or parallel as well as split the signal and send a separate drive engine to each of the pedal’s outputs.
    • Universal Bypass — Select either analog buffered or relay based True Bypass.
    • External Control — Compatible with Source Audio expression pedals, the Source Audio Tap Tempo switch (which also acts as an external switching mechanism), and the Hot Hand 3

    Neuro Editor Features

    Connect the L.A. Lady to the Neuro Mobile App (a free download for iOS or Android) and explore the power of effect downloading, customization, and sharing that comes with every Ones Series pedal.

    • Free Effects Downloads — — Every Source Audio overdrive, fuzz, and distortion algorithm is available as a free download directly to your L.A. Lady Overdrive.
    • Customize Effects — Access Neuro’s extensive equalization capabilities or experiment with multiple drive circuit blends and stereo splits.
    • Advanced Signal Routing — Choose from a range of signal routing possibilities like effects send, multi signal mixing, or mono signal splitting.
    • Save and Share Customized Presets – Once you’ve fine-tuned an effect, save it to your personal effects collection and share it with the growing community of Neuro users.
    • Download Presets — Explore Source Audio’s ever-expanding library of effect presets.
    • Simple Connection — The Neuro App. connects with the L.A. Lady via the mobile device’s headphone jack and Stereo Input 2 on the pedal. A Neuro App connector cable (1/8” to 1/4”) is included with the pedal.

I've just written a review for the Malekko Sloika, in which I praised its avoiding the trappings of control laden tweakable pedals and maintaining easy to use utility.
But sometimes it's hard to resist, and the Source Audio One Series drive pedals are my choice for the mind-blowing number of ways you can affect its tone. The expansive library of engines you can choose from to load onto the DSPs, the EQing parameters included, and the internal routing options, all mean you'll probably never see the end of messing about with it.
Be prepared to spend a lot of time in the Neuro app or desktop editor though. I wasn't hugely enamoured by the stock presets this shipped out with, and it'll take time to sculpt your sound and find its sweet spot. If you're after a pedal you can just bung into your rig and go, without spending hours fiddling about on your phone or computer, this probably isn't the right pedal for you.
That is, unless you run a stereo rig and would really like the option of routing as much of your board in stereo as possible - in which case this is one of very few viable options for true stereo drive, and the legwork of setting it up just comes with the territory. You'd be hard-pressed to find an alternative drive for stereo rigs that'll give you sheer variety of options and tonal scope this offers.
For mono rigs, explore the internal routing, set the DSPs in series for cascading gain, or in parallel for a 2-band effect. The sounds you can get out of it these ways will blow you away.
I don't feel that it being a digital pedal, that you're going to appreciably "lose" anything that's already in your rig, but I still feel analog gain adds something that this doesn't, by the way of the more irregular top end "sparkle" you get from physical components with their varying tolerances, interacting with external factors such as ambient temperature. Especially if you're not running both DSPs in either series or parallel routing for mono as mentioned above, I feel it's worth trying to stack it with your amp's drive channel, and/or another stompbox. Use this pedal, with its different engines and parametric EQ, for heavier tone sculpting. Create and save a heap of presets to deploy and define your tone for one day or another, one track or another - then run it with other gear that adds that "something" that this might not have on tap.
