Meris CXM 1978
Meris has recently joined forces over the past year with Quality Pedal maker Chase Bliss Audio to build a reverb pedal based on the most sort after Studio Reverb the Lexicon 224. Meris co-founder Angelo Mazzocco recently announced at NAMM 2020 that the two pedal brands had been over the previous few years trying to come up with a suitable project to combine their forces on. When Chase Bliss Audio announced the released the Preamp MKII Automatone at last years NAMM it sparked the two manufacturers to come up with a reverb unit housed in the same Automatone case. The result is the CXM 1978. Chase Bliss Audio built the case while Meris provided the sound design.
Little is yet known of the CMX 1978 with only a prototype being shown at this years 2020 NAMM. We don't yet know if it will be released under the Meris Brand or Chase Bliss Audio. We can only speculate that it will be a Meris Released product as the branding on the prototype is solely Meris at this point.
Some Preliminary Features:
- Moving faders with presets & MIDI control
- 32 Bit AD/DA
- LoFi Mode for vintage digital sounds
- 3 Classic Algorithms (Hall, Room, Plate)
- Adjustable Decay Crossover for fully shapeable reverb tail
- Expression pedal control over all sliders
- Stereo input and output
Based on the pedigree of these two exciting Brands we are sure that CXM 1978 is going to be epic.
