WNAMM07: Latest Lexicon Reverb Streams Via Firewire
MX500 Dual Stereo/Surround reverb processor digitally interfaces with your DAW 26/01/07
Lexicon have introduced the MX500 Dual Stereo Reverb
Processor with a Firewire connection. Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own words:
'Give your CPU a rest. Put expensive â€œfarm
cardsâ€� out to pasture. Now you can have the rich,
luscious Lexicon sound thatâ€™s defined studio reverb
for three decades in a purely digital form. With
all the convenience of an automated plug-in right
inside your DAW program.
The new MX500 takes our innovative â€œhardware
plug-inâ€� feature to the next level by actually
streaming dual stereo audio via FireWire.
Like the MX200, MX300 and MX400, all
parameters of every reverb, delay and dynamic effect
in this powerhouse quad processor are available
inside any PC VSTÂ® or MacintoshÂ® AU compatible
DAW program. But now the sonic benefits of Lexicon
can stay digital.
we didnâ€™t forget
balanced 4-in /
4-out analog connections â€” you
can switch back and forth between
digital and analog I/O via software
and automate either with our hardware plug-in.
At its heart, the MX500 is everything you would expect from the
company that invented digital reverberation. Seventeen classic Lexicon
reverbs, delays and modulation effects plus dbxÂ® compression and deessing.
A generous LCD display and big comfy knobs you can get your
hands around. A wealth of routing options
from quad mono to dual stereo.
The MX500 lets you switch effect routings via front panel controls, so you donâ€™t have to spend time behind your rack changing cables to instantly re-purpose its four powerful processors. From basic quad mono, to stereo to more complex dual stereo configurations, you can have â€˜em all at the twist of a knob.
The MX500 is perfect for band PAs,
churches and clubs when itâ€™s not working its
magic in the studio.
We know you need to be able to make
changes quickly, so we designed the MX500â€™s
intuitive front panel to be a bare minimum
of knob tweaks away from any adjustment or
effects change. For example, three individual,
assignable parameter controls mean you donâ€™t
have to page through menus to fine tune a
reverb tail. And because you can use its built-in
dbxÂ® compression and de-essing in tandem with
reverb, the MX500 is the perfect tool for taming
Finally, you can rely on the MX500 for years to come, through
countless load-ins and load-outs â€” although its sound is A-studioquality,
we designed the MX500 to withstand dust, moisture, shock,
power surges and all the other rigors of live sound use.' Features
