Chase Bliss Audio is teasing another Automatone pedal with six faders and it looks like it could based on a 1978 Lexicon 224 reverb unit.

Automatone CXM 1978

We have already seen one Automatone pedal from Chase Bliss Audio today, the long awaited new Preamp MKII.

That pedal took over a year to come into being and was first talked about last year during Winter NAMM 2019.

Lexicon 224

Is this new one a Lexicon? It looks suspiciously similar to the old 1978 Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb and the pic on Instagram says CXM 1978 in one of the photos.

If you think you know what it is, feel free to let me know in the comments section below.

Meris

I’m not sure, but it seems like it could be the Lexicon 224 in a new form. You can see a Meris logo and Stereo I/O on the rear of this new pedal, so it could well be a reverb.

UPDATE – I was correct it is a modern day Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb. See video below.

    It’s a preamp, not a reverb unit. Controls are for volume, treble, mids, bass, and gain. It’s programmable and the faders slide when presets are changed.

    Drawer 1978 Compressor in pedal format?
