The Source Audio Nemesis Delay Pedal is compact, powerful, and easy to use with unrivalled tone and flexibility. Featuring 12 on board delay effects, switchable sub divisions, hold function, tap tempo, MIDI control and much more.

Nemesis captures the full spectrum of delay effects, the Source Audio engineering team spent over a year studying numerous iconic and sought after tape and bucket brigade delay units with a staunch dedication to identifying their every nuance and idiosyncrasy. The Neuro Mobile App (free download for iOS or Android) gives very powerful tone editing options through additional eq and effects settings, gives access to 12 additional delay presets, switches the 4 on board saveable presets up to 8 and switches between true and buffered bypass, stereo routing options and more. Stereo input and output jacks provide dramatic stereo ping-pong and stereo phase inversion effects and can also be rerouted to create an external effects loop either pre or post effect. An external expression pedal can be used with the pedal and can be assigned to control any combination of knobs.

A full breakdown of the 12 on board presets is as follows:

  • Slapback, synonymous with rockabilly guitar effects, Slapback delivers a short single repeat echo based on early tape delay machines
  • Digital, a classic clear digital delay with optional delay time modulation. The intensity knob controls filtering allowing for high pass filters (creating a thinner delay sound) or low pass filters (creating a warmer delay sound). 12 o’clock on the Intensity knob offers a 100% pure, unfiltered delay
  • Diffuse, smears the attack of the repeated signal, softening it and allowing it to blend in more easily with the unprocessed dry signal. This creates an ethereal sound reminiscent of classic 'oil can' delay systems
  • Analog, the sound of classic bucket brigade analogue delays. Successive delays are warm, resonant and increasingly lo-fi
  • Tape, a detailed re-creation of classic moving-head tape delays. Tape captures all the characteristic flutter, warmth, and colour that give vintage tape delay machines like the Echoplex and Space Echo their classic charm
  • Noise Tape, grittier and darker than 'Tape', capturing the sound of old or damaged tape
  • Degrade, a primitive Lo-Fi digital delay with bit crushing and sample rate reduction. This creates unique retro sounds with varying amounts of distortion, noise, and aliasing
  • Shifter, a delay with polyphonic pitch-shifting on the delayed signal. Choose from octave (either up or down), minor or major 3rds, 4ths, and 5ths
  • Helix, this angelic delay effect combines reverse delay with an octaver to create a strange, shimmering delay that disappears into the upper frequency range
  • Reverse, the classic reverse tape sound made popular made popular by a number of iconic psychedelic guitar players. The Nemesis creates several overlapping reversed delays that fade in and fade out regularly to create a pulsing tremolo effect
  • Sweeper, a resonant low pass filter slowly sweeps across the frequency range, creating an undulating synth-like effect
  • Rhythmic, the Nemesis delay line contains 6 taps. This allows for the creation of rhythmic patterns in the delay effect. The Rhythmic effect uses 4 taps to create a wide variety of rhythms
