Nice! I really want one of these. Thanks for the demo. What was the female chorus sound you used towards the end? That sounded especially nice through the pedal.


The latter portion of this video seems to come from Mellotron sounds. I'm guessing the digital ones they make these days, maybe?
Yes indeed cool the Mellotron M4000D Rack:

Can anyone comment on the pitchdown swell/attack envelope feature this has? (I think swell and attack is the same thing?) Basically it sounds like this allow your sound to glide downward (and upward?) in pitch. Is that pitchdown swell unique to the Meris pedals? Or are there other pedals that could give you this pitchdown swell feature with another reverb in the signal chain?

The swell button blends the reverb slowy from dry to wet (setting of the mix knob).

The vector contols allowes to set the reverb to a pitch down or pitch up reverb effect. (and octaved reverb, shimmered and 5th reverb)

I love the pitch down reverb and to blend from a normal reverb to a pitch down reverb via a expression pedal.

I habe a GFI Systems Specular Tempus as well. It can do "better" shimmer reverbs, and there is something like a pitch down reverb, but the Meris does a far better job here.

I'm not sure I'm into the Mercury 7 sound. I think it sounds good, but not sure if I need this reverb. I'm mainly looking for something that will give me the pitchdown effect in a pedal. That way any reverb can be used with that effect.

I guess when we talk of 'swell', normally people are talking about turning up the volume I thought. But in the Mercury, it seems like swell means wet/dry mix...

If you're looking for a pitch shifter I would recommend getting a pitch shifter. The Mercury 7 is a fantastic reverb, but that doesn't sound like what you're looking for to be honest.

Wish I could find a pitch shifter that bends the note down in pitch like the Mercury 7 without having to use a pedal or foot switch to activate the bend (like the Digitech Drop/Whammy for example).

Expensive, but good suggestion. It looks like it does ramp and glide like I want and you can specify the time it takes. Very customizable, even though that's not necessary for me. Wonder if any other pedals have a ramp/glide rise and fall, mainly fall.

Chase Bliss isn't cheap - but their pedals are worth every penny! I have a few of them - the Thermae just got here and haven't had the time to check it yet - and they are exceptional. And all are very customizable via dip switches and are midi compatible.

I haven't tried CV control yet but I saw a demo and it looks pretty slick! With say a volumn pedal in the heel position you set all the knobs to their starting position an then you move the pedal to the to position and set all the knobs to the desired ending position. Once that is done you can use the volume pedal to morph between the two settings! eek! hyper thumbs up I think it might be interesting to try under sequencer control to for having some obvious effect on certain notes/steps and not on others![/quote]
this is something line6 is doing for years. very usefull!
i've been saying it for years: the M5 is truly a wonderbox. esp for the money ...
but please, do keep selling 'm secondhand so i can pick 'm up. for cheap hihi

Just to check: I should be able to use the Mercury in the send-return loop of a Praga without the need for a stomp box integrator, right?
