Chase Bliss Mood MK II Demo Video

The Chase Bliss Mood MK II is ambient music in a pedal. Far away from the “happy accidents” that are hyped in many forums, you can learn to understand this pedal and thus create sounds that can become the soundtrack of your life or of a great movie. Of course you can also use the pedal as a reverb, MIDI synchronized delay or reverse pitch delay, but the Mood MK II can do so much more. It wants to play with sounds, alienate them and discover new worlds of sound. No matter whether with the guitar or the synthesizer, the sound is always marvellous and spherical. Compared to its predecessor, the MK I, the Chase Bliss Mood MK II has some features and sound options that definitely justify switching to the recent version.

So, go on a sound journey!

Tips& Tricks: What’s wrong with my pedal – first aid instructions part 3

Tips & tricksRecently, a reader gave me an interesting note regarding a problem, which I would like to explain in detail here.
Pedals that run on battery do not work if you use the wrong cable.
Pedals without a batterie clip don’t mind whether you are using a mono or a TRS cable. But due to their construction, pedals that run on battery only like TS/ mono cables.
Here I would like to tell you the reason why. Continue reading “Tips& Tricks: What’s wrong with my pedal – first aid instructions part 3”
