CXM 1978 Vintage Studioverb Meris collaboration

With box, manual, fader shield 

The CXM 1978 takes a unique approach to decay, linking it to EQ just like natural acoustic reverb. You’re able to set independent decay for the bass and mids, with Cross acting like a frequency splitter. By adjusting the EQ, you’re actually setting the absorption of the walls that make up the digital reverb tank.

1978 was a big moment for reverb. It was the dawn of sprawl, the first time reverbs were capable of massive trails and infinite decay. The CXM 1978 allows you to explore the charm of those late 70’s imperfections, or our hifi and lofi reimaginings.

The reverb you’ll find here is highly interactive and physical, built from a moving, evolving network of digital reflections. Each space has its own behavior and response, just like true reverb. 32 Bit AD/DA, stereo I/O, and internally boosted +/-15V rails for line level input

Use Room’s lively and grounded character to create a natural sense of space, or lean into the richness of the slower-building waves of Hall. Plate is the glue, a dense and flexible option that can fit in anywhere.

Tank Mod
Toggle between three different types of motion to support the atmosphere or make the walls start moving.

LOW : Subtle, organic liveliness.
MED : Dreamy, chorus-like waves.
HIGH : Rotating speaker-inspired overtones.

Smear the reverb’s initial attack, especially handy for shaping percussive sounds and pick attacks. Diffusion is also your gateway to some unique behaviors hidden within CXM 1978’s different spaces.
