Habit is a delay pedal with a memory, which acts more like an instrument than a regular effect pedal. Chase Bliss Audio has created something truly unique and with limitless potential for creative musicians.

As ever Chase Bliss Audio never makes anything simple to describe. The new Habit delay pedal has a lot of features. Combining delays, with the ability to sample from the memory bank.

A lot of controls

The top row of controls is relatively standard for a delay. With Level (Ramp), Repeats and Size. Whereas the second row has controls for Modify, Spread and Scan. Then you get the third row with mini switches with multiple functions. Finally, factor in all those 16 dip switch options on the top of the pedal, plus the ability to control it via MIDI, CV and an expression pedal.

How Deep?

I like that Chase Bliss says it hasn’t figured out everything the Habit can do, so don’t feel bad if it all comes across as a little confusing. They have even produced a 15-minute long video manual to accompany the printed manual.

So you like to tweak? Then Chase Bliss Audio has the pedal for you

Loop, Sample, Repeat

Essentially, you can sample from the internal memory. As the Habit is always sampling audio, so you can have it play parts back randomly. Then combine this with the delay and layer sounds. Think of the pedal as a digital tape reel then factor in all that control, and it could possibly be an endless source of creativity.

I’m always in awe of Joel Korte’s creations and the Habit just sounds wonderful. You can visit the Chase Bliss Audio site for the details. Honestly, do yourself a favour and just listen to the demo videos below.  This little yellow pedal is pure joy and I love it!
