Red Panda is an effects company founded by Curt Malouin, that specialises in DSP-based pedals. Curt was designing software synthesizers, but moved into hardware in 2009 - launching the Red Panda bitcrusher pedal. 2011 saw the release of their pioneering granular delay pedal - the Particle, which allowed musicians to bring granular synthesis from computers to live performances. Red Panda operates with a small, dedicated team in Detroit, their ethos is rooted in deep algorithm research and user-centered design. Currently, they are developing a second generation of pedals with enhancements like stereo inputs/outputs, programmable presets, and MIDI control, coupled with a web-based editor for detailed sound tweaking.
