The new and improved MAKO D1 V2 High-Fidelity Stereo Delay from Walrus Audio adds some new functionality and tweaks to the original version, plus the ability to do firmware updates via USB. You get five delay modes Digital, Mod, Vintage, Dual, and Reverse, along with stereo in and out, 128 presets via MIDI, and 9 onboard presets.

Revamped Delay Modes

Where the updates of the V2 really kick in, though, is with the new revamped Reverse program that now achieves a stronger effect, and the redesigned Vintage program for emulating a tape delay/grit. The stereo width has also been improved, allowing two widening types, Panning and Haas Stereo Effect. Finally, there is that USB port I mentioned earlier, so you can do firmware updates via walrusaudio.io.

Did we need a V2?

Besides these revisions, the new V2 works in pretty much exactly the same way as the previous edition from 2020, so there isn’t a huge learning curve involved. Overall, it seems like a decent update, though the original version of the MAKO D1 pedal is only two years old, so it might be annoying for owners of the original pedal.  Hopefully though, as you can now do firmware updates via the new USB port, we won’t need a V3 anytime soon.

RRP – GBP 319 / EUR 369

    I’m a slightly annoyed consumer who just bought v1. The reverse mode is messed up because it seems to reverse the second repeat, not the first, so every pluck is doubled, then you hear the reverse. It’s pretty useless. But dual mode is worse, the patterns are too busy and there’s no real control.
    The pedal is just fair, and this news has put me off buying Walrus in the future.

    Every medal had two sides : at one its really nice that they improved the Pedal, at the other as Owner of V1 its of course not nice. But its digital and so its no surprise things getting better. And Hey now its updateble, so maybe Versoin 3 and 4… will be free 🙂
