Meris have announced the LVX, a new stereo delay pedal with a modular architecture that allows users to craft their own custom delay sounds using a newly designed user interface presented on a built-in colour screen. The unit is equipped with an ARM processor, has up to 2540ms of delay time available and also features a 60 second stereo looper. 99 presets can be stored across 33 banks, with a Favourite Preset Bank functionality giving users instant access to their top three choices. MIDI implementation allows control of the pedal's parameters via CC messages, as well as providing preset recall and the ability to synchronise the effects to MIDI Clock. The use of external expression pedals is also supported, with users able to assign a pedal to control multiple parameters simultaneously.
Over on the rear panel, stereo I/O is provided on four quarter-inch jack sockets, with a fifth providing an input for connecting an expression pedal. Headroom level for the I/O is switchable, allowing the pedal to be used with line-level sources in addition to guitars. MIDI I/O appears on two DIN connectors, whilst a USB-C connector allows the pedal to be connected to a computer to install firmware updates. Power is supplied via an external 9V DC supply.
The LVX will be available in late summer 2022, priced at £619$599.
