Sucks it's been leaked today on other forums and facebook now by others, but official announcement tomorrow.
Remove if not allowed, but I figured since the cat is out of the bag everywhere else... IF IT'S TRUE (we'll see tomorrow!)

Looks to be awesome and staying with the LVX form, and I'm loving the blue which would go well with my blue gm-800, sy-1000 and prs guitar.

Page written in german so I translated it via chrome translation:

According to manufacturer Meris, the MercuryX is said to be nothing less than the most flexible studio reverb that has ever existed in pedal format. Steep thesis, but is there anything to it? The pedal features eight custom reverb functions, algorithms, discrete processing elements and control signal modifiers that can be connected anywhere...

As of now, there are no product videos to be found, but they should arrive soon. Until then, you can think back to the popular Mercury7 and combine its tried and tested sounds with these new options in your head:

Features:�
Modular reverb system
8 Custom Reverbs: Ultraplate, Cathedra, 78 Room, 78 Plate, 78 Hall, Spring, Prism and Gravity
Advanced ARM processor
Intuitive color screen based interface
"Hold Modifier" switch for on-the-fly use
99 memory locations in 33 banks
tuner
"Favorite Preset Bank" for quick access to your three favorite presets
New stereo freeze along reverb
Gate envelope controls for each reverb type
New processing elements including 79 Chorus, Vibrato, Vowel Mod, Tremolo, Hazy Lo-Fi and more
Digitally controlled analog mix bus, stereo input and output, switchable line levels
MIDI in and out, assignable expression pedal for various parameters
High-quality analog signal path and 24-bit AD/DA with 32-bit floating point DSP
Designed and manufactured in California, USA

Price: Meris MercuryX Modular Reverb System Pedal €699

I have an LVX and really like it, so I would expect this to be a pretty nice pedal. However, between my Strymon BigSky and NightSky, I'm set for reverb pedals.  :-)

Yeah, I keep thinking beyond my BigSky do I really need a Nightsky even though it's cool and this, if it exists, can it really go beyond all that?   We'll see I guess!

Mercury7 is my favorite reverb pedal hands down. When you darken the tone and eliminate the shimmer it's the closest thing to the actual Lexicon sound that I've found in a pedal. It's magical, so I kind of can't wait for the MercuryX.

I also like the BigSky quite a bit but it doesn't do this.

I requested for a meris mercuryx patchstorage to get up and running to share presets!
I'm sure they'll let it go through, as the LVX has one too.

Interesting - but does this really eclipse something like a Big Sky?   

OK now listening again with my better headphones.  I found a pretty major software bug when listening to videos on a Mac using the original Apple airpods where if you have the mic setting on the computer to that of the earpods the audio quality is aabsolutely terrible - set it to internal and it improves hugely.

This is a nice sounding unit.

I loved bigsky when I had it and wish I kept it, but I'm also loving this a lot. I don't have it yet, but I will sometime!

This looks interesting - I have had the CMX1978 on my 'to buy' list for a while - this could be an alternative as it has the same algorithms plus more for less money.

I still think I will prefer (and use) the immediacy of faders though as I really need something I can dial up on the fly in the studio while mixing - will spend some time watching the demos and see if I can get my head round all this complexity.

I have their LVX which I love and adore and the MercuryX has the same interface. It's pretty easy to use in my opinion!

I do like that it has a screen with a somewhat graphical interface.  That's kind of an improvement in my mind usability wise over the BigSky even though the BigSky still sounds awesome.   The little screen on the bigsky has limited functionality by comparison.  I think a reverb unit in a way can be a complex device and having some kind of screen really helps.

So had some time with it and it's amazing. This is just messing with the presets so far and tweaking some of the knobs here and there! I had the Strymon BigSky before in the past and while it is great, I don't feel like I miss it or feel like MercuryX couldn't do something it can.

BROCKSTAR

Made a preset on the new Meris Mercury X pedal. A haunting reverb that lays low in the background just enough to remind you that the past is never far. However... smash that hold modifier and the feel and smell of nostalgia hits you hard!



Used my BOSS SY-1000 for the clean acoustic like tone and the Mercury X for the reverb. Find it on the Mercury X patchstorage as "LOSTGENERATION".

Nice sounding,  :)
 when the effect kicked in I had a school days flashback to the old movie projector sound jitter.
Thanks for sharing :-)
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.

Very nice playing. I like the guitar + reverb more such a delicate long trail gives depth to your lines.
Excellent.
