All the time. See Details.
The Particle is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.

It is fun and musically.
Totally awesome and have huge range of possibilities.
All modes are cool and useable.
You know, sometimes You get an multi modes device, and use only 2 of 3 function, but not with the Red Panda.
Just get one and I am sure, You will not part with it.

Yeah this pedal is amazing! Well built and awesome sound quality.
I must admit though it is not just your ordinary delay pedal and I had to spend a while tweeking the knobs and finding cool settings that work for me,especially for onstage. The knobs are sensitive and there is a whole universe of sounds when adjusting the knobs even a hair!
I found the Prymaxe demo very handy.
Anyway I used it at a gig last night and just chucked it on any old setting and, well it went off! Really insane!!I had the reverse setting kind of set up but then I just started flicking knobs around and with a fuzz and chopper,crazy! In fact I think I will have to go back and give it 5 stars. I love anything that makes my guitars sound swirly and freaky. This pedal surely delivers.
Nice work Red Panda!
Thanks Prymaxe Vintage!

What's great about this pedal is that it's essentially a delay. A good sounding delay, decently warm and spacious on basic settings. From there, things can get interesting when you start adding just the right amount of chaos.
If you've played with any of the granulator plugins out there, this pedal may be somewhat familiar. It might take some getting used to but after a month I'm still pulling out textures that are new to me. It definitely forces me to reapproach my playing in a good way.
Freeze mode is awesome, and the levels are setup to make it really playable. Hit a note, then stretch it out to infinity, with all kinds of random nuances.
What would be great is to be able to combine some of the modes. For example, randomize the pitch AND delay time AND reverse..
An effects loop in the delay feedback (like the TimeLine) would be nice too, right?
But really there's more than enough here to keep things interesting. I recommend this pedal highly!

I've only had my Particle for about 10 days so I've barely scratched the surface of this device. First of all, the reverse delay is amazing. Been using this setting while jamming with a drummer and it provides an awesome textural component that-once you get a feel for it- is dynamic and "playable". Every single setting I've tried with this pedal forces you to adapt your playing in a way that is really freeing. On the more practical side of things, the range of parameters on this pedal make it super versatile. From "ring-mod-y", to tremolo, to demented alien organ this thing is really a world of sound. One last thing: I think the use of an expression pedal with the particle is a must. The ability to control various parameters in a rhythmic fashion is probably the most fun you can have without doing something you regret.

This thing is amazing. Truly inspiring. Its as complex or as simple as you'd like it to be. I think I'll be discovering new tricks with it for years to come. It'll create sounds I've never heard anything else create. If you are looking for something cool and different to add to your setup, I can't recommend this guy highly enough!!

Fell in love with the Particle immediately! It was exactly what I was hoping for and more. Love the Reverse mode as well as the freezing capabilities. I can spend hours messing with it. Check out Prymaxe's demo, it's the best one that I have seen out there and it gives you a real taste of what you can do with this little beast. It also seems to be made really well. I can't wait to take it out to my next gig!

The particle can be a little daunting finding settings you like, but if you're into experimental music/sound, this thing is great at stuttering, reverse delays, oddball tremolo effects, and it can even be dialed in to use as a regular digital delay. Add an expression pedal or other voltage source and you have madness at your feet and excellent playing dynamics that has an adjustable threshold so you can "capture" grains of sounds depending on how hard you pick. HIghly recommended for you weirdos out there.

This is one of the most fun pedals I've ever played, out of over a hundred. It's not strictly a delay, pitch vibrato, sample reducer, bitcrusher, LFO modulator...I mean, it's all of those things, but it's definitely a unique beast. Unexpected sounds happen at turns of all if the knobs (except Blend) and lead to some total chaos as well controlled beauty and more standard delay. But still unique. No other pedal like this out there. Worth every penny!
