Earthquaker Rainbow Machine V2 Delay + Pitch Shifter Pedal

The legendary Rainbow Machine has received circuit updates for a reduced noise floor and higher output, a recalibrated Magic control that enables controllable oscillations and grants a wider sonic range. Additionally, both of the unit's footswitches have been converted to silent relay-based flexi switching, enabling effortless operation as well as the ability to use the pedal's Activate and Magic features as a momentary effect.

The Rainbow Machine is one of EarthQuaker Devices’s most recognized pedals. From its characteristic sound to its idiosyncratic enclosure, this is a pedal that commands attention in all the right ways. At its core, this polyphonic harmonizing modulation powerhouse is a shoegazer’s dream.

Rainbow Machine v2 Features

  • For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass
  • For momentary operation, hold the footswitch > down for as long as you'd like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed

Sound Design on Modular Synths for Animation with Squash & Biscuit
Join Squash & Biscuit—Shuwen Zhao and Brian Griffith—as they walk through their process for creating sounds for animation. In this video, they take a short clip of an animation they're working on and create a foundation for a fleshy monster sound. They also take us on a strange, improvised journey with a live performance. Check out their interview on Signal where they talk about their latest album, Lavender Eggplant.
EarthQuaker Devices Rainbow Machine v2 Guitar Demo
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Welcome to the Rainbow Machine, in all its synthetic glory! This one is for experimenters, adventurists, and noisemakers. Totally not for purists and/or tone hounds. There are no “natural sounds” that come from this box. It takes modern DSP and uses it as a tool of future past to create real-time pitch shifting using digital oscillators.

Stop? Okay, fine, but what if I told you the Rainbow Machine has been completely re-imagineered from the pixie dust-covered ground up to be more versatile, twice as loud as the original, with an extended delay time, deeper chorus tones, improved signal-to-noise ratio, silent flexiswitch footswitches on both the Activate and Magic functions, and most of all, has more Magic?
