US manufacturer Chase Bliss Audio have released yet another wonderfully odd and ambitious stomp box, called MOOD, and listening to the demo, it’s hard to disagree with that name. MOOD is a ‘two channel granular micro-looper/delay’. if that explains exactly nothing to you, just skip to the demo below and have a listen.
MOOD is actually a collaborative build between Belgians Drolo FX and fellow American boutique circuit designers Old Blood Noise Endeavors. Drolo FX is behind the loop channel design, a series of micro-loopers, and Old Blood Noise Endeavors designed the wet channel, featuring a suite of live spatial effects.
It’s tricky to sum up what this pedal does, it’s scope is large. Chase Bliss themselves sum it up with ” you have three different options for how the channels are internally routed. Run a time-stretched loop through a cloud of delay taps, re-record it and carry on. Overdub, freeze, dissolve, smear,” but safe to say, if you’re interested in lo-fi atmospherics and unusual soundscapes, Chase Bliss’s MOOD will likely impress. Check it out:
