New MX200 Stereo Multi-Effects from Lexicon
January 26, 2005
Lexicon Pro announced the MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor at the 2005 Winter NAMM show. This new single rack-space, two-channel unit combines an intuitive front-panel design with a unique USB connection and VST interface for use with software recording platforms. Featuring a wide array of the reverb algorithms Lexicon is noted for, with delays, effects and dbx dynamics, MX200 is the intended for the home studio or the concert hall. In any application, the MX200 offers versatility and instantly accessible reverb, dynamics and special effects with the signature Lexicon sound.
The MX200 provides a USB interface with a cross-platform VST plug-in window, allowing the MX200 to function as a "hardware plug-in" within any VST-compatible workstation environment. This USB plug-in feature allows MX200 users to easily add legendary Lexicon effects to their computer-based recordings within the graphical interface that appears in the recording application like a plug-in, with full automation and recall features. Now software-based recording engineers can enjoy the renowned Lexicon reverbs and effects.
In live performance settings, the tactile senses will be satisfied as well, with the MX200's intuitive front panel design that indicates which two effects are active and provides independent control areas for each 24-bit processor. Three control knobs for each processor offer instant, precise and meaningful control over the most critical parameters for each effect. Users can choose two effects simultaneously in one of four routing modes: Mono Parallel; Mono Sum-to-Stereo; Stereo Serial; or Stereo Parallel. Other front panel controls include Input Level, Effects Mix, Balance, Audition (preview mode), Tap Tempo and Configuration. Ninety-nine carefully-crafted factory presets offer stunning reverbs and effects, with an additional 99 programmable slots that allow the user to make custom effects from dozens of effects types including halls, chambers, plates, slap and tape-type delays, dbx dynamics algorithms, and special effectslike chorus, flange, tremolo and rotary.
