Over the past 2 years Meris have been working hard on the development of a new pedal, the Meris LVX Modular Delay System. The LVX is a departure from their previous pedals in form, however this pedal is unmistakingly Meris. LVX is a slightly larger pedal than the classic ENZO, Polymoon, Hedra, Mercury 7 and Ottobit JNR and offers presets with the ability to create your own sounds and save them into custom preset slots.
Meris claims, “LVX is a Modular Delay System which breaks the paradigm of pre-set delay types in favour of freedom and flexibility. A completely new UI and user experience has been designed from the ground up to make LVX immediately intuitive to navigate. The architecture of LVX allows ultimate creative freedom to design a custom delay. The pedal features discrete processing elements and control signal modifiers that can be connected as desired for nearly infinite flexibility in crafting custom sounds”
Another thing to notice is that Meris has utilised individual left and right jack inputs rather than the combined stereo input used on their previous pedals. They also added traditional MIDI in and out connections and a USB C connection. All very welcome additions.
We haven’t had a chance to get our hands on this pedal yet but going by the creative genius of Stephan from The Pedal Zone, this pedal has that hallmark Meris sound adding some very cool delay and modulation algorithms that allow you to build anything from a simple stereo tap delay to otherworldly intensely modulated effects. LVX also adds a looper with reverse, filtering and an amazing lo-fi cassette modulation which transports you to an older time frame but with a uniquely modern sound.

The Meris LVX has only just been announced in the lead up the 2022 Namm and we expect units to start shipping in the next couple of months. Keep an eye on our Australian Meris Authorised dealers HERE
