Chase Bliss Audio Habit Experimental Delay w/Memory

From Chase Bliss:

So what is this pedal? Simply put, it's a delay. But in typical Chase Bliss fashion, it's a lot more than that. This project started over 2 years ago when we saw a lot of customers using their blooper pedals strictly as delays. We've been doing it too. The problem is that it's a little bit frustrating if that's the only thing you want to use blooper for, so we decided to imagine blooper as purely a delay, and design around that. Then, we let our imaginations wander… and ended up going to some places we never expected.


At its simplest, Habit is an experimental delay that can be up to a minute long. At its extreme, it’s a self-contained song made up of chance encounters. That's due to the fact that Habit is always listening to what you are playing and has 3 minute long buffer where the past can interact with your present playing. Habit allows you to control how the past interacts with the present.

Habit is a delay with a memory. It stores everything you play for later, so you can revisit and reuse sounds from the past: Gather up loops, design echo patterns, and harmonize with yourself from two minutes ago. 

It’s an effect that can be turned into an instrument on a whim, an evolving paint-splatter of everything you do. Or it could just be a fun echo.

Habit’s secret is a digital tape reel that records every sound that enters the pedal. As long as Habit is on, it’s recording. 

At any moment, you can scan back into this history and play moments from the past–instead of, or alongside the present. This architecture makes a pile of interesting things possible: never-before-heard delays, bizarre loops and transitions, and even entire songs captured right inside the pedal.

60-second delay

We’ve tossed a whole lot of echo into Habit. Frippertronics, loop generation, and the ability to create glacially evolving scenes–a sampling of what you can get up to with all that delay.

Secondary echoes

Turn up the Spread control to listen to two moments at once. This is the key to Habit’s multi-tap abilities, but can also get into some wild cognitive dissonance. Echoes of the past and present, playing side-by-side.


Trim, filter and etc. your echoes into any shape you wish with Habit’s flexible modifiers.
