Meris Ottobit Jr. Stereo Bitcrusher Pedal

Arcade dreams reborn - bit crusher with vintage synth inspired low-pass filter, triggered stutter effects with tap tempo for stutter and sequencer

Product Description

The Meris Ottobit Jr. looks like a stompbox, has controls like a synth and is the child of a 500 Series module that brought the world the concept of “audio in, video game out.” Designed and built in Los Angeles, the Meris Ottobit Jr. is a maniacal little machine inspired by the sounds of vintage gaming consoles just like its predecessor.

This pedal is a crazy clean bit crusher, switchable from 1 to 24 bits, and features a selectable sample rate that covers the range from 48 Hz to 48 kHz. Yet, the Meris Ottobit Jr. does more than just take you back to the video arcade. It also features a low-pass filter that can make it sound like you’re playing a vintage synth when it’s hooked up to an expression pedal. Plus, the pedal has a six-step sequencer with tap tempo that’s surprisingly simple to figure out, as is its stutter option.

Lots of fun and pretty amazing. I just sent in a remote recorded overdub track for a session using only the 100 percent wet signal from the ottobit and the producer loved it. I did actually need to do a bit of studying to figure out what it does and how to work it. It's a very deep and crazy box.

It’s pretty versatile, but difficult to apply to most music

Without even delving into the sequencer or stutter capabilities, this pedal offers beautiful audio quality reduction. It's comparable to the VSTs I use to use for a similar sound, but much more harsh, for better or for worse. The filter is a nice addition, and being able to do filter sweeps on my drum machine has been a real joy. My one complaint about this pedal, and my only complaint, is that the Bits setting loses any distinction of what's going on any lower than like 12 o clock. From there all the way to the left, it basically sounds the same no matter what input I'm using. Sounds great on synths and drum machines!

Overall a solid pedal, but a couple of things...

First, it does have some tracking problems, occasionally missing a pick attack, or misfiring the sequencer out-of-time.

It also has some weird power issue. I tried to plug it in with my isolated power supply and it would not power on. looks like you have to use the Meris power supply they provide.

Otherwise a pretty solid, funky little pedal. Just don't expect perfection...

Took me a second to figure this one out but now that I am full in, I'm hooked. I kind of rely on pedals like this to make up for my crappy playing. One note can take on a life of it's own and inspire a whole song.

I have been waiting years for a pedal like this. The Ottobit Jr. is so many things but my favorite feature, is it's 6-step sequencer. Tuneable from -1/+1 octaves in half set intervals, you are able to sculpt and shape different patterns and rhythms. This also features the best low pass filter I have ever heard in a pedal. Extremely wide sweep. The glitch / stutter effect is super fun as well. The Ottobit Jr. also plays well with other instuments. One of my favorite things to do, is to add some bit reduction to my Arturia Drumbrute to give it a broken up, chiptune effect. Don't forget every paramter on this pedal has full expression control and MIDI functionality. This is, without a doubt, the most inspiring pedal to come out in the last 5 years.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
