Product information "Chase Bliss Audio - Habit"

A clever, highly flexible combination of memory buffer/looper and (multi-tap) delay, modifier algorithms and automation - Chase Bliss Habit Pedal is an innovative "Echo Collector".

Built from well-known function-blocks, this effect unit develops a novel, very flexible concept. At first glance, you might dismiss it as "some kind of digital delay" but it is much, much more.

The individual function-blocks are Memory(-buffer), Delay/Echo, effects for the Delay and also Spread, which is a kind of second playhead that is fed from Memory:

The signal is first passed through the Memory part, which always records in the background and has a buffer of 3 minutes. Memory records continuously - with or without overdub, depending on the setting.

Right after this comes a Delay with Repeat to infinity and up to 60 seconds delay-time. This function block can be processed with one of the six selectable Modifier-algorithms. These include glitch, filter, tape degradation and pitch shift-like effects.

The Spread and Scan parameters are a bit unusual:
Scan determines which part of the memory is played into the delay. Spread also accesses memory, but with adjustable offset compared to Scan. Scan is kind of a second tap. Very good for more complex delay patterns.

The wiring and the behavior of the individual units can be edited via 6 (of 16) DIP switches on the topside. Via the other 12 switches you can reach the Automation function also known from other Chase Bliss Pedals. Here, the position of the selected knobs determines the start point of the modulation and the Level/Ramp knob determines the speed of the integrated LFO. Or you can use the EXP/CV input as source. Oh yes...MIDI is also integrated via the Tap/MIDI jack, but requires the Chase Bliss Midibox.

With this flexible configuration, almost all conceivable user scenarios can be covered, such as looper, (modulation) delay, multi-tap delay, feedback wall-of-sound machine. And these are only the obvious ones, because there is always something new to discover about this pedal. The really good manual and introductory video (see below) is highly recommended. In short, it can be said: With Habit, Chase Bliss has gotten everything out of the simple idea "A Delay with a Memory".

Habit needs a power supply with 9VDC/150mA/center negative, which is not included.
