Meris live at the fringes of the pedal world, seeking out bold new sounds that defy the laws of tone. Incorporating MIDI control, intricate algorithms and stunning studio-quality audio resolutions, they're true stompbox trailblazers. 

Introducing the Hedra, a 3-voice rhythmic pitch shifter. The rhythmic element allows you to craft pulsing riffs, dancing leads and otherworldly polyrhythms with your instrument. The complex pitch controls offer a harmonic deep-dive experience, with 3 layers and a vast number of interval combinations to play with. Combine the two, and you've discovered a rarity in the pedal world; something entirely new.

Here's what Meris say:

The Hedra is capable of adding 3 harmony voices to your instrument and with tap tempo synchronised delay available for each voice. It transcends the realms of standard pitch-shifting. In addition, pitch glide, micro tuning, 4 individual delay configurations, adjustable pitch correction and MIDI keyboard control all combine to offer a sonic experience like no other.

Keep it simple and just use Hedra as a standard chromatic pitch-shifter. Or pile on the intervals and slip into its dancing diatonic dreamscapes, via its 6 different scales and wealth of rhythmical subdivisions. Turn up the glide control and hold down tap for auto-swelling synthy portamento shifts - or bump up the pitch regeneration - and you’ll be floating away on clouds of shimmering sci-fi effects. Hook a MIDI Keyboard or a MIDI Sequencer up to Hedra and turn your source instrument into a mind-bending tapestry of harmonies and hard-tuned pitch glides.

Although it adds an entirely new dimension to the humble 6 (or more) string instrument, Hedra is not limited to just guitars. In fact, you can use the pedal on pretty much any instrument or line-level audio signal you want. Whether you choose to totally transform your beats on a drum machine, harmonise vocals or completely alter additional synths, loops or any other type of audio, Hedra’s advanced pitch-shifting palette is sure to transport you and your sound to entirely new sonic worlds.
