More than just a weird noise maker
altibzz, 18.03.2018
I think a lot of the demos out there don't do this pedal justice, you can get some really beautiful and unique sounds from this thing. It's capable of everything from tuned choruses, rolling slapback delays, lagging harmonies, and self oscillations.

Definitely not your standard pitch shifter, but if you're looking to explore some new sounds in your music then this is the pedal for you.

I deducted one star because it does tend to click when engaging. It's not super load or anything, but is noticeable.

Definately not for everyone. If you're a sonic adventurer, this thing is wild.
It should nonetheless be noted that the "normal" sounds, like the chorus-like effect when you're not overtweaking it, sound very nice as well.
Conclusion: This pedal, especially the "magic" is whack, but the beauty is the range: you can go from mild psychedelic chorus, delay, pitch shifting, etc. effects to full on fairy pixieland or hellish cascade sounds. Combines well with other pedals.

Great pedal! I've watched a couple videos about this and as soon as I saw someone said that they order it from Thomann it was a must have.

Muss man haben
Hambach, 09.12.2019
Also eher muss man mal gehört haben. Es kommen so viele wunderschön komische Sounds aus diesem Pedal, dass es immer wieder eine Freude ist ein bisschen damit rumzuspielen. Man sollte sich im Vorhinein aber bewusst sein, dass es für die meisten Musikstile nur mit sehr viel Kreativität und Willen wirklich verwendbar ist. Man kann sehr klassische digitale Delaysounds und mit dem Detune auch schöne (und nicht so schöne :) Chorussounds herausbekommen, aber die eigentliche Stärke der Rainbowmachine sind das Pitchdelay und die Selbstoszillationen. Es ist wahnsinnig inspirierend und überrascht einen immer wieder aufs neue aber wer konservativere Allround-Delaysounds für live oder das Studio sucht sollte sich lieber woanders umschauen (was ja in Bezug auf die ganze Palette von Earthquaker bekannt sein sollte :).
