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.

TT-78 With Geiger Counter Pro, Excess, Rainbow Machine and Shallow Water
For this video we ran the Cyclone Analogic TT-78 Drum Machine through three parallel effects chains and then mixed them back together with the Bastl Dude. One chain is the EarthQuaker Devices Rainbow Machine V2 into The Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water, The other two effects are the Old Blood Noise Endeavors Excess and WMD Geiger Counter Pro.
