Walrus Audio has released MAKO D1 V2, a major makeover of its high-fidelity stereo delay with updated algorithms, stereo widening and firmware via USB.
Walrus Audio is one of the best-known and most popular pedal manufacturers among guitarists. But they are not only made for guitars. Synth players and sound designers should check out these excellent pedals.
Walrus Audio MAKO D1 V2
The MAKO D1 V2 is the second version of Walrus Audio’s high-fidelity stereo delay. The new version adds some new handy functionality and improvements to the original version. The algorithms remains the same: you get five inspiring delay modes: digital, mod, vintage, dual, and reverse. Two of these got improved algorithms: reverse now a more dominant, stronger effect while vintage is a redesigned from scratch and now emulates a characterful tape delay.
Then, the stereo width has also been improved with two widening types: panning and haas stereo effect. The MAKO D1 V2 still offers a stereo in and out as well as the option to save 9 presets internally and 128 via MIDI.
Another highlight of the V2 is the new USB port with which you can now update the firmware. It’s a shame, the port is a micro USB and not a USB-C. I don’t understand why companies still use micro USB today.
I really liked the Walrus Audio Mako D1 V1. Still interested in trying it with synths. Now V2 has been improved in many places, which a good news. Except micro USB port.
Walrus Audio MAKO D1 V2 is available soon for $349 USD/369€/£319
