The Los Angeles based company Meris managed to get people talking with the release of their Meris Ottobit 500-series Bit-Crusher, a unique piece of equipment that ‘crushes’ audio down to emulate the sound of early video games. Now the company have taken that idea and made it into a pedal – the Ottobit Jnr.
The pedal features a vintage synth inspired low-pass filter, triggered stutter effects, a variable sample rate, and a sequencer module for pitch, filter or ‘decimation’ pattern sequencing. The Jnr. has stereo in/out as well as MIDI and expression pedal control over all of its parameters simultaneously. Put simply, this is a pretty cool piece of gear, and it will be available in Australia in March.
