Red Panda designs and manufactures musical instrument effects for experimentally-minded musicians. With a focus on digital signal processing, the company creates effects that warp, twist, and bend sound without losing the underlying musical quality and control. The philosophy of founder and chief designer Curt Malouin is to create digital algorithms that behave in natural, organic ways without being direct models of analog circuits. Red Panda is a Detroit-based small company with far reach since first mixing up the effects pedals scene in 2011.
Particle™ is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then rearranges, shifts, and mangles it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to time stretching, stutter, and glitch sounds.
The Bit Mixer is a small, high-quality mixer designed for pedalboards. It features ultra-low distortion, low noise op amps. High-impedance inputs are designed for guitar, but work with line level signals as well. Each input has a volume knob that goes from off to unity gain. Only 4.4” x 2.6”, and works with standard pedal power supplies from 9-18 V....
The Bitmap™ is a bitcrusher with fractional bit reduction and sample rate modulation. Adds the warmth and grit of classic samplers, while reducing your signal from 24 bits down to 1 bit. Our bitcrushing algorithm delivers maximum sustain without sputtering on staccato notes. Fractional bit reduction provides smooth changes and a broader range of sounds....
With additional knobs for wet/dry blend, pre-delay, decay, and high-frequency damping, the Red Panda Context Reverb provides complete control over the tone and color of the reverberation. There is also an internal switch between true bypass and "trails" mode, which allows the reverb to decay naturally.
The Raster is a digital delay with a pitch- and frequency-shifter integrated into the feedback loop. It delivers a wide range of sounds including harmonized delays, reverse delays, chorus, arpeggios, infinite descents, chaotic self-oscillation, and continuously evolving soundscapes.
The Tensor gives you live reverse and tape stop effects, pitch shifting, time stretching and hold functions that you can combine in creative ways. Slow down, speed up and rewind in real time. Stretch or compress time with no pitch change. Loop, overdub, and randomly slice phrases up to 4.8 seconds.
