Chase Bliss MOOD loopop review

MOOD is a new effects pedal from Chase Bliss Audio – developed in collaboration with Old Blood Noise Endeavors (its left side, with spacial reverb/delay style effects) and Drolo FX (the right side, micro-looping and granular synthesis).

What got me interested in this pedal isn’t the individual parts – but rather its Clock feature – which lets you slow down its sample rate, and here’s the important bit: in harmonized steps of octaves and fifths. 

The result is an effect that plays along whatever you “feed it”, and gives you a slower or faster and yet harmonically relevant and gritty version of what you play – sort of like easy sub harmonics in a box.

  1. How would an expression pedal work?

      You plug it in and then use the dip switches to configure what it controls

  2. Is there any way to utilize tap tempo with this thing? It seems like a pretty obvious feature to have a delay/looper with tap tempo, and I don’t see any information regarding this. If I have to bend down to change the time of the delay/looper via knob turns, that is a pretty far step backward in terms of usability. Otherwise, this pedal is really impressive.
