Meris launches MercuryX modular reverb system which takes Mercury7 “to all new heights”
MercuryX takes “the heart and soul of Mercury7” and adds new updates and features.
Effects brand Meris has built upon its popular Mercury7 pedal with the all-new MercuryX modular reverb system.
The classic pedal has been take to “all-new heights”, with Meris claiming the X version is “the most flexible studio reverb ever created in a pedal format.”
The original Mercury7 landed back in the late 2010s, and took inspiration from the soundtracks of Vangelis and ‘80s sci-fi classic, Blade Runner. The MercuryX sees the reverb now in a beefier cage with added features. Meris says it offers “pro audio” and has “studio rack heritage”, providing advanced processing, and a high performance signal path.
It combines eight custom Meris reverb algorithms and incorporates those into a modular system UI/architecture. Specifically, the architecture that was introduced with its award winning LVX pedal.
Its Ultraplate and Cathedra reverbs are taken from the Blade Runner-inspired tones offered in the Mercury7, whilst the 78 Room, Plate and Hall structures are inspired by the sounds of a studio classic (which does not appear to be named), whilst Spring, Prism, and Gravity are brand new structures unique to the MercuryX.
