Red Panda Tensor Tape Delay

Analyzes what you play at three levels – phrase, note, and waveform

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. Play in reverse with pitch shifting.  Stretch or compress time with no pitch change. Loop, overdub, and randomly slice phrases up to 9.4 seconds (4.7 seconds in stereo).  The Tensor is always listening, so you can instantly rewind what you just played and seamlessly shift between forward and reverse.  It constantly analyzes what you play at three levels – phrase, note, and waveform – to choose the best splice points, so you can focus on your playing.

Tensor is always listening

Intelligent, multi-layer randomization adapts to the knob settings.  The results range from occasional CD skips, stutters, and rhythmic repeats to random slicing and erratic pitch shifts.  The Tensor is always listening, and can switch from bypass to effect with no gap or delay.  Both foot switches have momentary and latching modes to inject pitch jumps, stutters, glitches, or instantly rewind what you just played.

Pedalboard-friendly enclosure with all jacks on top

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.  Add the Remote 4 or a MIDI controller for presets and additional looping functions.
