Lexicon effect processors

I have two Lexicon effect processors in my rack which I used to use a lot (also on stage). Both can connect to the X32 mixer and, hence, Cubase.


Lexicon MPX500 Dual-channel Effects Processor


The Lexicon MXP500 is an effect  processor with balanced analogue I/O on both XLRs and jacks, and S/PDIF digital I/O on phono connectors. The converters are 24‑bit and with analogue dynamic range of 105dB. The unit features stereo operation and the signal path provides a number of routing options, from stereo‑in, stereo‑out to dual mono‑in, stereo‑out or dual mono‑in, dual mono‑out. It’s also possible to select from a number of dual effects connected either in series or in parallel and, in the case of series connection, to vary the amount of the first effect feeding the second. MIDI In and Out/Thru connectors are provided for patch dumping, real‑time parameter control or tempo control. See also SoundOnSound.

Lexicon MX200

The Lexicon MX200 has stereo balanced inputs and outputs on TRS jacks and can also handle S/PDIF I/O. Alongside the USB link are conventional MIDI In and Out/Thru ports. The MX200 features the classic Lexicon reverb sound as well as providing additional effects (32 effect types in all), where two effects can run at the same time under one of four routing options. These may be accessed through very simple front-panel controls or using the MX-Edit editor/librarian software that works within VST. This way the MX200 is seen by the host software as a plug-in, even though it is really externally connected hardware. See also SoundOnSound.
