Chase Bliss Audio's 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.
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.
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.
