I'll be the first to admit that unlike many of my guitar-slinging friends, my eyes tend to glaze over when I see a retail or trade show display of effects pedals. My "slab" synths have effects onboard, I tell myself -- some of them very good. Older keyboards that can benefit from effects, such as my Clavinet E7 or Rhodes Stage Mk. II, I already have covered with classics such as the MXR Phase 90 and Crybaby wah.
The guys from Chase Bliss Audio seemed to know about this jadedness on the part of some keyboard players, as they were demo'ing their impressive line of stompboxes with a beautifully restored (and custom-finished) Roland Juno-60. These effects all feature fully analog signal paths, but are addressable via MIDI and can store presets.
More importantly, they sound absolutely stellar, and each allows for very flexible sound design. I came away with the opinion that these are those rare sorts of pedals that, like a favorite synth or set of modules, really do become your partner in sound design.
The video, from the final day of Knobcon 2017, is on the longish side, so if you want to skip the talking and get straight to the playing, start at around 4:00 in.
