Red Panda has introduced the Bitmap, a bitcrusher pedal designed to work with bass, guitar, synthesizers, drum machines and more. The stompbox features fractional bit reduction with a new bit crushing algorithm that the company says adds the warmth and grit of classic 8- and 12- bit samplers. It also goes down to 1-bit resolution for grittier square wave fuzz and “dying battery” sounds.
The Bitmap goes beyond bit crushing with sample rate modulation to create new textures with triangle, square, and random modulation. Other handy features include an expression pedal input, input and output gain controls, and a blend control to maintain bass in your signal.
The Red Panda Bitmap is available now with a street price of $239.
