The Meris Polymoon delay pedal has risen, and it’s big… no, wait, HUUUUGE!
The guys and gals at Meris in California have outdone themselves with this one. They have dubbed the Polymoon capable of a “Mathematical Dream State”, a Super-Modulated Delay inspired by cascaded rack gear. Just listen to the soundclips and let it blow your mind.
Staying true to the ethos of the company, the Polymoon’s unique delay algorithms have been written by DSP Engineer and VP, Angelo Mazzocco. Tidal soundscapes and super-modulated repeat trails will lead to new inspiration with every note you play. Guitar, synthesiser or any instrument will take on new new shapes and forms with the Polymoon’s massive algorithmic flow. Angelo describes his inspiration for the creative process:
I’ve always been mesmerized by how giants like Holdsworth and Zappa would push rack delays to their limits. I designed the Polymoon’s algorithms as a tribute to those sounds while offering an even wider palette of dynamic echoes.
~ Angelo Mazzocco, DSP Engineer/VP
Polymoon Ins and Outs
Standard fare for Meris effects pedals has been stereo I/O, Line or Instrument level selectable and Expression or Midi controller switch input, with some exciting new switches on the way in the near future. Polymoon features a TRS stereo input jack socket, which you select as either Mono or TRS stereo input via global settings. Left and right jack outputs and Expression/MIDI input via TRS complete the I/O configuration. A 9V DC PSU is included in the box, though it can work with other PSUs and expected current draw is up to 150mA.
Designed to surpass requirements for studio and live use, the Meris Polymoon features 24bit A/D & D/A converters, 32 Bit floating point DSP hardware and a premium analog signal path throughout. You can select whether you want it to run in True Bypass (relay) or Analogue Buffered Bypass modes. It also has a digitally controlled analogue dry path allowing for the most natural sounding wet/dry mix possible.
