In 1996, Dan Green founded an innovative effect pedal company named 3ms Pedals near Chicago.
In 1998 the company moved to St. Louis, MO, and began producing table-top noise devices as well as effect pedals for experimental musicians.
In 2002, we changed our name to 4ms Company (d/b/a 4ms Pedals).
In 2006 we created our first digital meta-instrument: the Bend Matrix, a 4x8 dynamic routing matrix, automatic circuit-bender, and octophonic mixer.
In 2009, we moved to Austin, Texas, when we began designing Eurorack modules.
In 2012 we moved to beautiful Portland, Oregon, where we currently have our studio in the west coast nexus of synthesizer makers.
In 2016 and again in 2017 we won Electronic Musician's Module of the Year!
