Not unlike the 1990 Schwarzenegger cult classic ‘Total Recall,’ the team at Chase Bliss Audio are setting guitarists through an interstellar realm of possibilities with Tonal Recall, an analog delay that’s unlike any other you’ve probably picked up before.
The array of knobs and flashing lights makes it seem more at home as part of the commanding dashboard arsenal of a galactic warship straight out of science fiction, too, but the out-of-this-world appearance becomes easily manageable after a few practices with the Tonal Recall included in the rig.
The Tonal Recall builds upon the classic analog sounds that many guitarists are familiar with and introduces a massive array of modern effects, such as the tap tempo setting which flashes a bright crimson whenever you plug the unit in.
There are six knobs on the face of the pedal which control the parameters for tone, mix, rate, time, regen, depth. By adjusting the depth and rate knobs you can play around with the pedal’s modulation, while using the four switches and two buttons also on the front of the pedal to do everything from save presets to adjusting the tap tempo.
That’s still hardly breaking through the surface of the tonal possibilities of the Tonal Recall; from ambient trailing echoes to a riveting stuttering effect, I was able to channel more sounds from a single delay effect pedal than I ever would have anticipated doing prior to working with the team at Chase Bliss Audio.
If you thought there still weren’t enough features to control your sound with the Tonal Recall, there’s even the option to connect an expression pedal to the multi-functional delay pedal and really explore the barriers of your sound.
