Panda Audio Intros Future Impact V4 Bass/Guitar Synth Pedal


Panda Audio has introduced the Future Impact V4, an updated version of their bass/guitar synth pedal.

The Future Impact is an example of Internet forums actually being a force for good.

The Future Impact began life back in late 2014, when enthusiastic members of the forum tracked down Andras Szalay to ask him if he’d be able to reissue the discontinued Deep Impact, which he had designed for Akai in the 1990s. Szalay agreed, but with more ambitious plans: the Future Impact was developed not as a reissue, but as an entirely new and vastly-improved synthesizer and effects pedal.

The Future Impact V4 features a completely new hardware and software platform.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Latest 32-bit ultra-high quality A/D and D/A converters;
  • New, app-based loading system expands the digital hardware with new apps;
  • Vastly advanced pitch tracking, based on 30+ years of experience;
  • CV/Gate output to drive analog synthesizers with guitars;
  • Hard Sync between oscillators to open new sonic worlds;
  • Sturdier knobs from metal provides longer life cycle;
  • On-pedal edits can be saved into program memories;
  • Total compatibility with all previous Future Impact patches.

Panda says that the Future Impact has been used by Bootsy Collins, Chris Wolstenholme (Muse), Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Mohini Dey and others.

Future Impact V4 is available now, with an intro price of 299 EUR price (normally 359 EUR).
