Red Panda Raster V2 is a digital delay and delivers a wide range of sounds including harmonizing delays, phase-shifted repeats, arpeggios, alien textures, chaotic self-oscillation, and continuously evolving soundscapes.
The core of the Raster is a clean delay with delay tim from 20 milliseconds all the way up to 1600 milliseconds, and up to 3200 ms through the online editor. It can be pushed to extremes for ring modulation and inharmonic shifted delays that distort and break apart.
Three pitch shifting algorithms are integrated into the feedback loop. Repeats can be pitch shifted up or down by an octave in semitone steps. The detuning mode gives smooth pitch changes from a fourth down to a major third up. Slight detuning creates chorused delay sounds, while wider intervals with feedback create strange organ-like textures. Repeats can continuously shift up or down, or shift once and remain at that pitch. Two reverse delay modes can be used for reverse solos or with pitch shifting for crystal echoes.
Beyond pitch shifting, a combination phase/frequency shifter creates subtle evolving repeats, dissonant harmonies, and barber pole flanging. It can be pushed to extremes for ring modulation and inharmonic shifted delays that distort and break apart.
The original Raster was praised for its knob response and immediacy, and the Raster V2 maintains that simplicity while adding flexible modulation and extensive stereo functionality. Alternate knob settings are related to the primary knob function, labeled, and off at the center position. Both footswitches can be latching or momentary, for instant pitch jumps or quick blasts of echo. The bypass switch can also mute the output in bypass while always listening, to catch, repeat, and manipulate what you just played.
