The bottomless looper.
Within this little blue rectangle is an intricate machine to explore, unravel, and make your own, with infinite opportunities and outcomes. The dream of blooper was to merge high-quality looping with creative manipulation, allowing you to steer your loops to new and extraordinary places. Record a loop one day, save, then come back and transform it on another.
On the practical end, there is loop saving, eight layers of undo and redo, and external syncing. On the creative end, there are two channels of modifiers, a lo-fi Stability control, and three looping modes. blooper’s heart is Additive mode, which allows you to record sound modifiers directly into the loop like any other overdub.

The first Automatone.
What happens when you combine the DNA of Benson Amps’ Chimera in a box Preamp with a little fuzz, some of Condor’s resonant parametric mids, and full blown preset control from your friends at Chase Bliss Audio? The Preamp MKII. Built in collaboration with Chris Benson from Benson Amps, and known around here as the first Automatone.
This baby has variable diode clipping control (transistor only, silicon, and asymmetrical germanium), fuzz you can swap from open to gated, three mids resonance settings with variable routing you can place before or after the preamp, and three banks of ten presets each that give you thirty presets to set at your leisure.
But what’s an Automatone, you ask? It’s a pedal built with motorized faders that adjust automatically – and a little magically – as you cycle through presets. Check out the video below to learn more and see it in action.

The Outward is a digital sampling device that records audio and plays it back in different ways, depending on the mode. With freezing, stutter, and time stretching effects, there’s a lot the Outward is capable of.View full product details
A collaboration between Old Blood Noise Endeavors and Datachoir, the Rêver provides reverb, delay, and reverse effects that combine into a unique blend of trailing, bizarre ambience. The delay and reverb sections offer typical controls: the delay offers variable level, time, and feedback while the reverb provides wet/dry mix, decay time, and a control for otherworldly modulation. The reverse section provides an option for latching or momentary operation and wet/dry blend; moreover, the reverse can be placed at the beginning of the signal chain or at the end, providing access to everything from layered, drifting ambience to glitchy washes and beyond. Rêver is far more than the typical delay or reverb: it is a textural space machine unlike anything else available.
An update on the popular modulation noisemaker pedal. Reflector V3 is a densely lush chorus coupled with three modes of modulation. This is a chorus with a bent, an ephemeral voice floating between aural dimensions.
Controls include Rate and Depth for the Chorus/Flanger/Vibrato speed, Mix for a balance between unaffected and affected signal and Modulate to add Pitch selection, Reverb wash amount or Flanger depth, depending on the mode. A three-way toggle switch allows the player to choose between Wrinkle Mode (A Vibrato-esque warble chorus with the added option of pitch selection, meaning the Modulate knob goes from one octave down to one octave up, with noon being close to pitch unity), Washed Mode (a simple lush chorus, Modulate control adds in a wash of Reverb pre Chorus effect) or Mirrors Mode (Detuned Chorus meets Flanger in which the Modulate knob controls the depth of the Flanger, while Rate corresponds to both the Flanger speed and the detuned Chorus speed).
The Reflector V3 features an expression out jack and clickless switching. The output level can be tweaked via an internal trimpot for boost, slight drop, or unity gain.
9VDC - 2.1mm negative center pin adapter.
60 mA draw.
- Toggle switch to select between three modes: Wrinkle (pitch shifted signal into
chorus), Washed (reverb into chorus), and Mirrors (resonant filter and chorus
- Mix control to go from fully dry (no affected signal) to fully wet (for true pitch
vibrato), with chorus sounds in between
- Rate and Depth control for the chorus, from slow and subtle to wildly wobbly
- Modulate control for pitch shift amount (octave down to octave up), reverb
blend (no reverb to full reverb), or filter depth
- Expression jack for external control of the Rate or Modulate parameter
- Internal trimpot to control output level
- Relay bypass switching and standard 9VDC center negative powerView full product details
Designed with our friend Brian Hamilton from smallsound/bigsound for OBNE demo boards, we thought it a reasonable idea to offer every bedroom player a way to not annoy those around them. Simply plug in the output of your pedalboard to the headphone amp, plug in headphones and blast your volume. Play whatever you like, you're the only one who can hear. Or a buddy can plug into the additional Headphone output. Headphone output is mono out.
Two 1/4 Headphone Output jacks allow two users to simultaneously listen.
***Not to be used as a normal amplifier pushing cabinets. Outputs are only intended for Headphone use.***
We call this our Preamp because it is! The circuit is based on the our Chimera 30 watt guitar amplifier, but substitutes FET transistors for the vacuum tubes. The result is an extremely amp-like and versatile clean boost/overdrive/fuzz pedal that imparts rich harmonics and a very musical EQ to your signal chain…truly a Chimera in a box!

Building effects around a foundation of flanging, the Flat Light is the latest in the Old Blood Noise Endeavors pedal line. From pitch shifting flanger to highly resonant metallic sounds to reverb-like delays and recognizable swooshes, the Flat Light will induce motion to your sound no matter where it sits in your signal path.
The Flat Light features:
Three modes of flanger: Detune (shimmering pitch shift), Resonate (highly resonant multiflange), and Echo (reverb-like delay)
Four controls to shape the sound: Rate to set rate, Depth to set depth, Shift to affect the something extra, and Mix to go from 100% dry to 100% wet
A Tilt footswitch to momentarily maximize Rate or Shift controls
Expression jack for external control of Rate or Shift parameters
Internal trimpot to control output level
Relay bypass switching and standard 9VDC center negative power
