Chase Bliss Audio Habit Echo Collector Delay Guitar Effect Pedal Used

Used with wear associated with use. Minor cosmetic scratches/scuffs from handling and play. Noteworthy blemishes or issues will be described and pictured. Works as it should.

We strongly recommend using the proper power supply for any pedal. Daisy chain power supplies may not supply enough power when using multiple pedals or introduce noise into the chain. Consult the pedal manual when available for manufacturer recommended power specifications.

Musical sketchpad. Compositional delay.

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. How is Habit different from MOOD? Or blooper?

Why do we keep doing this?

Getting down to work on blooper four years ago kicked off a pretty wild chapter for us. It was so much bigger than anything we’d attempted before, and there were so many parts we had to get right. MOOD emerged from that process almost by necessity: It was an outlet for us, compared to blooper’s neediness. It was a pedal that didn’t have to be anything in particular, it just had to be fun.

Habit is the final member of that family, and the most ambitious.

blooper = Loop-focused
MOOD = Ambience-focused
Habit = Delay-focused

We’re calling Habit a musical sketchpad, and it’s probably the best image to start wrapping your head around it. It lets you capture that sensation of absently doodling in a notebook and watching an image emerge. It’s a delay that lets you break away from the present moment, and create echoes of the past instead. Or both at once. It does this by recording every sound that goes into the pedal, so you can revisit them later. You can collect sounds you made 2 minutes ago and turn them into loops, or harmonize along with old playing, or build impossible echo patterns.

It’s something truly new, which led to some low-grade panic when it was time to sit-down and make resource materials. Are people going to get this? It’s half-effect, half-instrument, and it has a workflow that doesn’t really exist anywhere else.

What calmed my jangly nerves is that it’s fun. It’s a fun pedal. It goes a long way down but it’s not complicated, it’s just new. New things always take a minute to sink in. This is what I wrote to the team after really playing Habit for the first time:

“This pedal could get anyone out of a creative rut. You just play your normal nonsense for 10 minutes in collect mode, record it all, then listen back for things that inspire you and start building a song.”

It’s weird to play one thing, then hear echoes of something else. But it’s also really interesting, and really versatile. We had no idea how many things Habit would do in the end. We’re still learning them all truthfully, and I find that really encouraging.

If you’re like me, all of this might sound a little fuzzy right now. More than ever before, we’re asking you to take a journey with us on this one. Habit will mess with your head. It’s not a twist on the familiar, it’s something you haven’t tried before.

We even made a board game to help you explore it.

Real brief summary

Habit is a very adventurous delay. You can record free-form songs right in the pedal, you can navigate through a whole performance with the turn of a knob, and yes, you can just make delay sounds (that’s encouraged).

It will almost definitely open new musical pathways for you, and we’ve made an absolute heap of support materials to help you get there.
