Chase Bliss Audio first unveiled a prototype of its Blooper effect pedal – a stereo looper pedal unit that allows the user to do all manner of wild modifications to the sampled audio – back at the January Winter NAMM show.

Since then, the pedal, which the company is designing in conjunciton with Knobs and 3 Degrees Audio, has undergone rounds of revisions and modifications, which Chase Audio has been documenting in a ridiculously entertaining YouTube series titled “Blooper Reel.”
