Audio Tech Startup Revamps Inventive Guitar Multi-Effects Platform
Chaos Audio Returns to Kickstarter with a New and Improved Stompbox Design
Student-led startup Chaos Audio returns to Kickstarter today with a much-improved version of their next-generation multi-effects guitar pedal, Stratus.
The company launched an initial Kickstarter back in November 2020, but the team decided to postpone the campaign to continue improving their Bluetooth-enabled guitar effects platform. The Chaos Audio team reached out to industry professionals, guitar enthusiasts, and musicians of every caliber and used their feedback to redesign multiple aspects of their original prototype.
“Stratus retains the features that made it exciting in the first place,” said Landon McCoy, CEO of Chaos Audio. “The looper, tuner, intuitive smartphone UI, and device customizability are all intact and we’ve made noticeable updates to the pedal’s design.”
Stratus has received more than a new coat of paint. The footswitch is now more tactile and reliable, the internal electronics are quieter and more responsive, and the smartphone app interface is cleaner and faster. Overall, the new pedal is more versatile, more affordable, and more intuitive.

Chaos Audio received funding from venture capital fund, TechFarms Capital, in large part due to the amount of hard work and dedication the team of five college students put into their invention. Their support has provided the team with more resources to improve their initial design.
“The team at Chaos Audio has really impressed us,” said Steve Millaway, Managing Director of TechFarms Capital. Mr. Millaway was also the founder of several successful tech startups including semiconductor design company, Gain Technology Corporation. “I see a lot of myself in these young entrepreneurs. It is rare to see individuals with so much drive and passion for their work.”
