AES: Lexicon’s New Mid-Price FX Unit

The MPX200 - is it twice the MPX100?      15/05/01


Lexicon have a new true stereo, 24-bit dual-channel processor with 24-bit A/D-D/A and S/PDIF digital inputs and outputs (supports 44.1kHz). The MXP200 is powered by Lexicon’s proprietary Lexichip™,and features a newly designed digital compressor in addition to its outstanding reverb and effects. The 1U high processor includes 240 presets offering classic Lexicon reverb programs such as Ambience, Plate, Chamber and Inverse as well as Tremolo, Rotary, Chorus, Flange, Pitch, Detune, 5.5 second Delay and Echo. Additionally, there are 64 User locations available to store individual variations of these programs. Dual-channel processing provides two independent effects in a variety of configurations — Dual Stereo (Parallel), Cascade, Mono Split and Dual Mono — indicated by the Routing LED in each of the dual programs. Up to eight adjustable parameters (four program and four compressor) are available in each program. The digital compressor is available in all 240 programs, including the dual programs — simultaneously providing two effects and compression. A full range of MIDI control includes Program Change, MIDI bulk dump, and an easy Learn mode that allows MIDI patching of the front panel controls. In addition, tempo-controlled delays and modulation rates lock to Tap or MIDI Clock. Tap tempos are controllable by audio input, the front panel Tap button, dual footswitch, external MIDI controller or MIDI Program Change. The MPX 200’s front panel features all key function controls including Input level, program Load, program Edit, Compressor, Store, multi-function Adjust, Bypass and tempo Tap. In addition, easy to read LED displays indicate Compression gain, Input level (L&R channels), Effects and Routing, Edit Parameters, program Load, MIDI, Store and tempo Tap. Other features include 3-stage headroom indicators, 4-stage compressor indicators, inputs capable of accommodating musical instruments, headphone output, software-selectable MIDI OUT/THRU port, Cue program mode, pushbutton or footswitch selection of dry or muted audio output, assignable Bypass mode, Global Mix, Tempo and Compressor modes and a 20Hz-20kHz + 1dB frequency response. In addition, the MPX 200 has a built in power supply, eliminating the need for external power supplies. For more information on the complete range of Lexicon products
