  1. The expression pedal setup looks very slick. Would be great if more hardware synths had such an easy macro-parameter setup.

  2. I agree, it seems like a great feature set for that price.

    I’d like to know more about the envelop settings for the filter.

    I would also like to have heard some more routine examples of the pitch-shifting in action. Especially how well it tracks when just doing an octave up or an octave down. If it tracks smoothly an octave up, that would be a pretty unusual feature– because most pitch shifters in stomp boxes and multi-effects are terrible.

    1. There is an example of the pitch tracking at 10:10 in this video. It’s a simple slow melody, but still, I didn’t hear any tracking problems– which you can hear in the demos of other gear.

  3. Impressive work! I’m always weirdly pleased when someone hits the mark like this. While I’m semi-dazzled by big gear stacks because I’m a GUY, I’m also a big believer in a focused rig that brings out your most creative powers. This isn’t the right tool for me as a DAW creature now, but its a superior piece for a guitarist (or other soloist type, really) who has some vision. Meris would get my money on the spot *today* if I played strings. This could make a strong partner for a couple of Electro-Harmonix pieces. Thumbs up for a powerful variation on pedal power and another for the solid demo.

  4. Yeah, totally agree. Before I saw the price, I thought minimum it would be around $500. And this would be pretty cool even for $500…WAY cooler for $299.

  5. There is an example of pitch shifting on this video at about 10:10. It seems to track very well, though the examples are pretty slow and simple. Still, it sounds in-tune and seems to track perfectly.

  6. The MIDI-Out could be a hit, I wanted to see on those EHX things which turn guitar into Piano, Organ, Melo etc.
    I bet there will be more of such stuff out soon.
