    Product Description

    “What doesn’t the Tensor do?” is the right question to ask here. This is your go-to hub for all things timey wimey. Looping, time stretching, compressing, pitch shifting, reverse, chorus, slicing, overdubs and even more. It really is everything a pedal maniac needs to thrive.

    No doubt Panda’s most elaborate concoction yet, the Tensor is full of unique sounds and textures you will simply stumble upon as you explore what it has to offer. Its biggest strength is the loop function. Once you’ve laid down a little lick, it gives you the freedom to warp pitch, speed and length – all in realtime.

    Now it’s time to go nuts by randomising glitches, stutters and freezes; even dubbing over the original loop in momentary or latching fashion. And of course, you can access any of these sounds as you’re playing, ignoring the loop switch altogether.

    About Red Panda

    The boffins at Red Panda are all about pushing the boundaries of what can be done with natural, organic sounds. Forget your classic Klons and mundane reverbs, here it’s all trailblazing new effects using digital technology. This opens up the door for what can be achieved using the likes of guitars, keys and drum machines.

    Red Panda are a small company focused on design process lasting 12-24 months. They use automated manufacturing to improve the reliability of their creations. All electronics are fully assembled in the USA, while the enclosures are CNC milled and powder coated in Canada.

    Time to experiment.

    Here's what Red Panda say about the Tensor:

    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.  

    Intelligent randomization adapts to the knob settings. The results range from occasional CD skips, stutters, and rhythmic repeats to random slicing and erratic pitch shifts. Both foot switches have momentary and latching modes to inject pitch jumps, glitches, or instantly rewind what you just played.

    The Tensor is in a pedalboard-friendly enclosure with all jacks on top. All controls are immediately accessible with well-spaced knobs for live tweaking, and USB MIDI for recording and sequencing.

    Good idea, maybe more for techno rigs than guitar players, but then HenryKaiser likes it. I think the Red Panda Particle would be better for me. A more informed harmonic structure.
