Mercury7 Reverb

OFF-WORLD AMBIENCE

Pro Audio Heritage in a Pedalboard Friendly Design

REPLICANTS STANDBY

Inspired by the 1982 Bladerunner film soundtrack


Take your guitars and synths to new ambient worlds and be inspired by real time tactile controls, an extensive modulation matrix, intra-tank pitch regen, and ambient swell.

Terry Burton

Engineer/Founder
My analog synths clipped other pedals out there. So, I put in a selectable higher headroom signal path for Synthesizers.  One of my favorite things about the pedal is what you don’t hear … noise.
We live in an ambient world

Explore Space


Infinite permutations will lead you in new musical directions. Swell and modulate an infinite tail. Bend and warp a cavernous and beautiful space into oblivion. Architect and direct your mood with a precision tool.

Space Decay


Sets decay energy of the reverberation space.
Alt Function: Predelay Sets amount of time that elapses before the onset of reverberation.

Modulate


Sets overall modulation depth of the reverb algorithm.
Alt Function: Mod Speed Sets dominant modulation speed of the reverb algorithm.

Mix


Adjusts Mix of Dry and Wet signals in analog domain.
Alt Function: Pitch Vector Mix Adjusts mix between intra-tank pitch shifted reflections and normal reflections inside the reverb tank.

Lo Frequency


Changes how low frequencies react in the reverb algorithm. When set closer to max, low frequency decay times are extended giving the impression of a larger room.
Alt Function: Density Sets amount of initial build up of echoes before the reverb tank.

Pitch Vector


Sets intra tank pitch interval to: Octave down, slight pitch up, slight pitch down, 5th up, or octave up. Decay, Pitch Vector Mix & Hi/Lo Freq controls all interact to sculpt the intra-tank pitch regeneration.
Alt Function: Attack Time Sets the attack time for the swell envelope

Hi Frequency


Changes how high frequencies react in the reverb algorithm and alters the high frequency absorbtion of the reverb space. Set lower to reduce the amount of time high frequencies live in the algorithm for a more natural room reverb.
Alt Function: Vibrato Depth Adds vibrato to the reverb input for lush, haunting trails.

Swell LED / Alt Function Switch


Switch LED ON when Swell is active. Alt Functions only accessible when ALT (HOLD) is held

Bypass LED / Algorithm Select Switch


Switch LED indicates Bypass status. Small LEDs indicate active algorithm.
ULTRAPLATE: Inspiring & lush plate with a fast build.
CATHEDRA: Massive & ethereal algo with a slow build.

Swell


Press to engage the auto swell function. Hold to maximize Space Decay sustain

Bypass


Processes signal when LED is ON, passes dry signal entirely in analog (buffered or relay) when OFF.
