With the Lexicon MX300 dual processor stereo reverb, you can use legendary Lexicon hardware effects like plug-ins within your DAW, without hogging your computer's CPU. Cool. The MX300 makes all your favorite reverbs, delays, and dynamic effects completely accessible on your computer, freely allowing you to control automation and recall parameters, store custom programs, pull up Lexicon settings, and more. A USB cable is all you need to turn your hardware into software and back again.

Lexicon FX Fever

Enhance any vocal or instrumental performance with the MX300's tried and true effects, including 16 Lexicon reverbs, 7 delays, genuine DBX compression, and de-essing and modulated effects. A total of 99 factory programs are onboard to get you started and 99 user programs give you plenty of room to be creative.

Once you connect the hardware processor to a Mac or PC, all of its parameters are instantly ready to be tweaked, controlled, and automated in a DAW, just as they would be if they were software plug-ins. The MX300 processor comes with MX-Edit Librarian software for storing and recalling custom programs or checking out an unlimited number of Lexicon settings. Classic Lexicon effects become part of your DAW workflow as PC VST and Mac AU plug-ins.

Very Easy to Use

When you're in the middle of a live show, the last thing you need is for your gear to either confuse or fail you. Designed to be reliable and easy-to-use no matter what, the MX300 will keep the awesome effects coming via its simple, straightforward interface, bright LED display, and three dedicated parameter knobs. Using the unit is a piece of cake: once a program has been selected, you use three parameter knobs -- rather than having to page through extra menus -- to program presets and dial them up. The MX300 does what it's supposed to do in even the most demanding live sound situations.

As with other effects powerhouses made by Lexicon, the MX300 is built to endure years of use and abuse and still perform at its best despite repeated incidents of jarring, jostling, load-ins, load-outs, brownouts, and power surges. Take it on tour, from gig to gig, and know it will still be as good as new when it returns home to the studio.

Front-Panel Control

Forget the days of changing cables behind your rack -- the MX300 lets you switch effect routings right on the front panel using uncomplicated controls like Dual Mono, Cascade (Series), Dual Stereo (Parallel), and Mono Split.

Lexicon explains what does what: Dual Mono sends the Left and Right input signals through Effect 1 and Effect 2, and each signal is then routed to its respective output, which is completely independent from the other. Likewise, Cascade (Series) sends Left and Right input signals first through Effect 1, then through Effect 2, and then routed as a stereo signal to their respective outputs. Dual Stereo (Parallel) routes Left and Right input signals through both effects independently. Both Effects' output signals are then mixed together and routed to both the outputs as a single stereo signal. The function called _Mono Split sends Left input signal through Effect 1, while the Right input signal is sent through Effect 2. The output signals of both Effects 1 and 2 are then mixed together and routed to both the outputs as a single stereo signal.

When you want a streamlined signal path with only a single effect, go with stereo routing, which removes one of the effect modules and dedicates all the MC300's processing power to a single stereo effect path for Left and Right signals.

Product Description

Lexicon's revolutionary MX200 and MX400 changed everything. The great sound of a hardware Lexicon reverb -- plus the ability to put that power to work as part of your DAW workflow via PC VST and Mac AU plug-ins. Now they've packed a significant portion of the MX400's feature set into the ultra-affordable MX300.

Features:

- 2-in/2-out configuration
- 16 legendary Lexicon reverbs
- Lexicon delays & modulation effects
- dbx compression and de-essing
- Input Gain Control for stereo inputs
- Intuitive Navigation/Edition with large LCD screen, Page/Select Wheel, 3 top-level parameter controls plusExit, Tempo and Bypass selectors

- S/PDIF Digital Input/Output
- 24-bit, 48/44.1 kHz sample rates
- 1/4"" footswitch jack
- MIDI IN and THRU
- XLR and 1/4"" TRS balanced I/O

All parameters of every reverb, delay and dynamic effect in this powerhouse processor are available inside any PC VST or Macintosh AU compatible DAW program. Just link your computer to the MX300 with a USB cable, and control automation and recall parameters exactly as you would with any software plug-in. You get the sonic benefits only Lexicon hardware can provide -- without bogging down your computer's CPU with the extreme demands of reverb plug-ins.

Along with the unique "hardware plug-ins" for PC and Mac, Lexicon has also included MX-Edit Librarian software so you can store and recall custom programs or pull up an unlimited number of Lexicon settings. Do a serious side-by-side listening test of the MX300 versus comparably priced competition and units costing far more. You'll hear why Lexicon is the leader in reverberation effects.

When money is no object, Lexicon gets written into more major tour riders than any other brand of reverb. But when money is a concern, you can still have the rich, detailed texture that makes the Lexicon sound unique. Here is a full arsenel of voice and instrument-enhancing effects including sixteen Lexicon reverbs, seven delays, genuine DBX compression and de-essing and modulated effects that will make any performance sound better.

Lexicon designed the MX300 to be ultra-easy-to use in demanding live sound situations. Once a program has been selected, you have instant access to three parameter knobs -- instead of having to page through extra menus. You can program a whole night of presets, and dial them up quickly with the dedicated program select knob and bright LED display. Like every product that Lexicon makes, the MX300 is designed to withstand years of jarring, jostling, load-ins, load-outs, brownouts and power surges. It's simply the most live reverb ever offered at this price.

The MX300 lets you switch effect routings easily via front panel controls, so you don't have to spend time behind your rack changing cables. Dual Mono sends the Left and Right input signals through Effect 1 and Effect 2 respectively. Each signal is then routed to its respective output, completely independent from the other. Cascade (Series) sends Left and Right input signals first through Effect 1, then through Effect 2, and then routed as a stereo signal to their respective outputs. Dual Stereo (Parallel) routes Left and Right input signals through both effects independently. Both Effects' output signals are then mixed together, and routed to both the outputs as a single stereo signal. _Mono Split sends Left input signal through Effect 1, while the Right input signal is sent through Effect 2. The output signals of both Effects are then mixed together, and routed to both the outputs as a single stereo signal.

Stereo routing provides a single stereo effect path for Left and Right signals. This routing removes one of the effect modules for users requiring a streamlined signal path with only a single effect for their needs -- but taking advantage of all of the MX300's processing horsepower.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Why hasn't anyone reviewed this yet?THIS BEAST IS AMAZING!!!"
Sound: The sonic prowess of this unit is equally as good as any software or hardware effects that are out there. The audio quality is very impressive....deep,crisp,clean and utterly brilliant effect! I chose this unit to replace the muddy effects in my Tascam 2488neo and it's dramatically improved my vocals and instrumentation...what an incredible upgrade for the money!! Feature: Features galore...more than I'll ever use and the most useful for me,are the effects combinations,the routing possibilities and the nifty little BPM control on the display screen-WOW! Ease of Use: Front panel controls,LCD readout and sub-menus are intuitively laid out and an utter joy to work with! The manual is very useful and the tech support is top notch!Generally a small learning curve for those that are experienced with rack-mount processors and I did not have much prior to this unit and due to the versatility,I had a bit of trouble getting started......but 5 minutes with a tech support guy straightened me out right quick! Quality: I've had the unit only two days-but I am confident that it is durable,as it feels like a very well crafted unit. Very smooth and solid in terms of tactile quality. Value: If you think you need to spend more than this for vocals & keyboards-THINK AGAIN!This unit is ridiculously inexpensive for the level of quality and features!! Manufacturer Support: Tech support is excellent! The Wow Factor: A beautiful looking unit,display is very pleasing to the eyes,& great tactile quality of the front panel controls! Overall: I'll be satisfied for a lifetime if it holds up that long!
Style of Music: Ambient,electronica,rock,pop,jazz,new wave,vintage,retro.....

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "detailed reverbs and awesome delays"
Sound: this a great unit for the price. keep in mind you are getting a unit at entry level price that has top notch reverbs and delays. there are some draw backs that depending on how you use it depends on how in depth you can control the effect you are using. took a little time to get the sound i wanted, but it is great tone, i will be adding another to my rack system a little later. one will be for reverb and the other just delay. that way i can taylor both to what i want with all the mx300 processing power. i use this electric guitar and it is just great. Feature: you get what you need. Ease of Use: with a little time i say a couple days you can master the format and dial up what you want Quality: very solid Value: worth ever penny to me anyways Manufacturer Support: seem kinda hard to reach but havent needed them yet The Wow Factor: its a rack processor what can i say? Overall: just want to add another down the road
Style of Music: country,gospel and blues
