I had the chance to use this on a song and I love it. The rider functionality where it can oscillate between two settings is clever… And it just plain sounds good, easily.
I tried it on vocals, a few synths, and a full drum kit. It’s the perfect balance between being unique enough to “have a sound” but versatile enough for varied use. And it works well as both an extreme effect but also more subtle.
Adding chorus to the delay/reverb combo was a surprising effect I had never tried before… It’s good. It works.
The UI is really easy to understand as well, which makes it easy and fast to engage with. I barely needed to look at the manual except to learn about the rider’s functionality. Well done. Thanks for including it in Mercury!
I never knew how such a simple feature like the Rider can be handy.
It’s also great for verse/chorus style reverb configurations which you can manually crossfade between. Saves heaps of automation.
