Musical sketchpad. Compositional delay.
Habit is a delay with a memory. It stores everything you play for later, so you can revisit and reuse sounds from the past: Gather up loops, design echo patterns, and harmonize with yourself from two minutes ago.
It’s an effect that can be turned into an instrument on a whim, an evolving paint-splatter of everything you do. Or it could just be a fun echo.
- Use Habit’s interconnected machinery to design new rhythms and patterns.
- Shape your echoes with two banks of modifiers.
- Scan freely through the memory, or let Habit do it for you.
- Collect free-form compositions by simply playing into the pedal.
Moments from the past.
Habit’s secret is a digital tape reel that records every sound that enters the pedal. As long as Habit is on, it’s recording.
At any moment, you can scan back into this history and play moments from the past–instead of, or alongside the present. This architecture makes a pile of interesting things possible: never-before-heard delays, bizarre loops and transitions, and even entire songs captured right inside the pedal.
We’ve tossed a whole lot of echo into Habit. Frippertronics, loop generation, and the ability to create glacially evolving scenes–a sampling of what you can get up to with all that delay.
Turn up the Spread control to listen to two moments at once. This is the key to Habit’s multi-tap abilities, but can also get into some wild cognitive dissonance. Echoes of the past and present, playing side-by-side.
Trim, filter and etc. your echoes into any shape you wish with Habit’s flexible modifiers.

A new kind of workflow.
Habit’s compositional side introduces a new kind of workflow, like a free-form sampler. You can build loops by navigating the memory, picking out and combining various moments from the past. Or set the memory to overdub so that long-form songs emerge just by playing into it.
You can even send the output audio right back into the input in Feed mode to record your live effects processing and knob changes to memory.
