Patchwerks Originals: Chase Bliss Mood w/ Moog EP-3 Expression Pedal (and OP-1)
In this video Karl from Patchwerks shares his favorite way to use the Chase Bliss Mood and Moog EP-3 expression pedal with his trusty Teenage Engineering OP-1.
MOOD is a two channel granular micro-looper / delay. Designed to be playful and immediate, it is a study of interaction. MOOD is internally collaborative, allowing audio to freely pass back and forth between its two sides, evolving and transforming over time.
Drolo FX is behind the loop channel, a collection of always-listening micro-loopers, and old blood noise endeavors offer us the wet channel, a suite of live spatial effects. We 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. The device’s heart is the clock control, which slows or accelerates both sides simultaneously in harmonized steps. Instantly turn a loop into rolling chirps, or divide a reverb down into atmospheric noise. And naturally, we have full MIDI, dip-switch, and preset implementation.
The EP-3 Expression Pedal from Moog is a universal expression pedal for keyboards, synths, and pedals that have either an expression or CV input. It has a polarity switch for compatibility with non-Moog products and a scalable output knob for different musical ranges. The pedal itself is designed for smooth operation while being rugged enough for daily use and touring. A 6.5' 1/4" TRS cable is included.
