Red Panda builds effects for experimentally-minded musicians to explore sound. Our DSP algorithms combine modern signal processing techniques with the character of classic digital hardware. Our products allow you to warp, shift, and bend sound in new ways, so that you can explore with curiosity and discover new ways to approach your instrument.
Our approach to guitar effects comes from our experience building modular software synthesizers. Each effects pedal should do one thing extremely well, be deep and flexible enough for you to find your own sound, and work well with other effects.
We are located in Detroit. Our workshop is at the Green Garage in Midtown, a 1920 building that was once a showroom for model T-based automobiles. It was recently remodeled, creating a highly energy efficient building that is shared by about 50 companies.
