Chase Bliss Audio has unveiled an adventurous new pedal named Habit. The latest box from the innovative Minneapolis maker is a delay-based unit that it describes as a “freeform sampler and musical sketchpad”.

Habit can build traditional delays with the top three control knobs (level, repeats and size) and offers up to 60 seconds of delay time. However, what makes Habit stand out is that it records everything that goes through it on a three-minute buffer.
