Yes, it sounds like a band name from the Sixties, but it looks to be a pedalboard-friendly, pitch-shifting glitch pedal from the Japanese Bananana Effects company. It will capture a short loop, has a switch that will let you play it back either momentarily or latched, and a switch that permits you to shift the pitch up or down. You can order it in the states from Guitar Pedal Shoppe for $200 + shipping, or direct from Bananana for $185 +shipping.

Red Panda Raster Pitch-Shifted Delay Pedal
Red Panda unveiled a prototype of this cool digital delay with pitch shifter pedal at NAMM in January, but I didn’t get a chance to hear it there. The Raster ($249USD) delivers a an amazing array of Guitar Moderne-approved sounds including harmonizing delays, phase-shifted repeats, arpeggios, alien textures, chaotic self-oscillation, and continuously evolving soundscapes.
In an effort to encourage Guitar Moderne readers to submit their rigs for the new Reader’s Rig section, I proffer my own basic board. I thought it also might be educational to explain how I arrived at this particular configuration. It involved decades of experimentation with dozens of effects, as well as the knowledge gained by being in the lucky position of reviewing and writing about pedals for many years. That said, I am as neurotic as any other guitarist, so rest assured the experimentation is not over, nor ever likely to be.
