Red Panda Tensor Effects Pedals

Powerful guitar pedal capable of creating unique time-based effects like tape stop, slowdown, reverse, time stretching, pitch shifting, looping and more.
MFR# 364901

Product Description

The Red Panda Tensor is a powerful guitar pedal capable of creating unique time-based effects like tape stop, slowdown, reverse, time stretching, pitch shifting, looping and more. It literally gives you the power to slow down, speed up and rewind time — just like a wizard. Instantly injecting pitch jumps, stutters and even reverse solos in realtime. Unleash your true powers with Tensor from Red Panda.


Tensor performs tape stop, slowdown, reverse, time stretching and pitch shifting effects in real-time. The unique Hold controls allow you to loop, overdub and downright mangle up to 4.8 seconds of sound. In Latch mode the Hold button toggles loop recording on and off like a traditional looper, but in Momentary mode loop playback begins as soon as you take your foot off of the Hold button.


Use the Speed knob to create tape slowdown, stop and reverse effects in real-time. Dial in the amount of time stretching and compression from 25% to 400% speed using the Time knob. Obviously, Tensor can’t look into the future (it’s not that powerful), so time compression is only available during playback. That’s just about the only thing Tensor can’t do, though.

Create live harmonies with 15 different interval options spanning over four total octaves. Playback loops at different speeds or even different directions to create unique performances. Make sounds you didn’t even know were possible using an intelligent randomization algorithm that adapts to your current settings to create randomized glitches, stutters and pitch shifts.


Bring Tensor to life with an optional expression pedal (sold separately) and dial in dynamic, evolving guitar parts that morph on your command. Quickly set up simple effects like tape flanger, doubling, and accompaniment, or create controlled chaos using effects like tap tempo reverse, glitch, stutter and rewind effects.

Designed and assembled in Detroit, USA. Requires a 9 V DC 250 mA power supply (not included).

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
