Red Panda Particle functions properly and has been used in a non-smoking home studio. This was purchased as a "Blem" from Red Panda, which they describe as models which show cosmetic flaws. The bottom of the pedal has a "Blem" stamp.Manufacturer's description:
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.
Made in USA. Requires a 9V 100 mA center negative power supply (does not take batteries).
