We woke up this morning to an invasion of videos of the new Chase Bliss Audio Dark World, a two channel digital reverb pedal created in collaboration with Keeley and Cooper FX.

As feature-rich as any other stompbox by this manufacturer, the Dark World features a “World” channel created by Keeley Engineering that houses Hall, Plate, and Spring algorithms, while Cooper FX (who in January will be part of our upcoming NAMM Stompbox Booth) took care of designing the “Dark” channel, taking inspiration from his permanently out of stock Generation Loss and Outward pedals.

Put together, the channels can be routed in 33 distinct ways, creating a stunning palette of reverb ranging from subtle, tasteful, and lush all the way to broken video cassette, glitch shimmer, and infinite freeze.

The usual host of dip switches in the back panel, and flexible Midi/CV/Expression control options contribute to making this a very creative and flexible tool for any musician into reverb – any kind of reverb.

Here are an interview with Joel from Chase Bliss and few videos by some of our favorite videographers!

Dark World™ is the first fully digital offering from Chase Bliss Audio; a unique dual channel reverb that we made with a little help from our friends. Cooper FX is responsible for the “Dark” channel; a collaborative effort influenced partly by their Generation Loss and Outward designs. Keeley Electronics crafted the “World” channel, which houses three absolutely gorgeous Hall, Plate, and Spring algorithms. Put together, the channels can be routed in 33 distinct ways, creating a stunning palette of reverb ranging from subtle, tasteful, and lush all the way to broken video cassette, glitch shimmer, and infinite freeze. Add all this to the dense digital control and full MIDI, dip-switch, and preset implementation Chase Bliss is known for, and you have yourself a very fun, powerful, and player-friendly reverb pedal in a small package.
