THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: RED PANDA "PARTICLE" GRANULAR DELAY & PITCH SHIFTER
Awash in pedals of dubious value and expectations of aural armageddon it's easy to forget that noise should be pursued for its subtleties not merely a headache. Most are used by guitarists searching for some version of six-string nirvana, leaving those involved in modular synthesis scratching their heads and fumbling with patch cables. Red Panda's PARTICLE pedal rewards subtle tweaking of incoming signals from my Serge M-Class, and in doing so makes for a cost effective addition to any system without delay, pitch shifting possibilities, or a granular chopping block.
