Lexicon MX400 Dual Surround Reverb

You want the rich, luscious sound that's defined studio reverb for 3 decades: a genuine Lexicon hardware processor. But you also want the flexibility of programming high-quality effects right inside your DAW program... without bogging down your CPU or resorting to expensive processing cards.

Have it all with the MX400. All parameters of every reverb, delay and dynamic effect in this powerhouse quad processor are available inside any VST or AU compatible DAW program. Just link your computer to the MX400 with a USB cable and control all automation and recall parameters exactly as you would with any software plug-in -- while enjoying the sonic benefits only Lexicon hardware can provide.

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 your choice of 223 genuine Lexicon settings including 25 dedicated Surround Programs. At its heart, the MX400 is everything you would expect from the company that invented digital reverberation. Seventeen Lexicon reverbs, delays and modulation effects plus dbx compression and de-essing. A generous LCD display and big comfy knobs you can getyour hands around.

Features:

- 17 legendary Lexicon reverbs
- Lexicon delays and modulation effects
- dbx compression and de-essing
- Quad-processor design
- 7 effect routing options
- 99 Factory/99 user programs for Stereo mode
- 99 Factory/99 user programs for Dual-Stereo mode
- 25 Factory/25 user surround programs
- USB 'Hardware Plug-In' feature with
- VST and Audio Units plug-in software
- MX-Edit Editor/Librarian software
- Dual S/PDIF Digital Input/Output
- 24 bit, 48kHz/44.1kHz sample rates
- Large front panel LCD display
- MIDI IN and THRU
- 1/4 in. balanced/unbalanced TRS I/O

Hands-On Control and Road-Rugged Construction

Meet the most Lexicon power ever offered in a super-affordable 1RU effects processor. Perfect for band PAs, churches and clubs. You need to be able to make changes quickly, so they designed the MX400's intuitive front panel to be a bare minimum of knob tweaks away from any adjustment or effects change. For example, 3 individual, assignable parameter controls mean you don't have to page through menus to fine tune a reverb tail. Because you can use its built-in dbx compression and de-essing in tandem with reverb, the MX400 is the perfect tool for taming problem vocalists. Finally, you can rely on the MX400 for years to come, through countless load-ins and loadouts -- although its sound is A-studio-quality, Lexicon designed the MX400 to withstand dust, moisture, shock, power surges and all the other rigors of live sound use.

The first time you ever heard reverb on an album track, chances are you were hearing Lexicon. They invented digital processing. And they've been perfecting it for 30 years.

7 Effects Routing Options

The MX400 lets you switch effect routings automatically via front panel controls, so you don't have to spend time behind yoru rack changing cables to instantly re-purpose its four powerful processors.

From basc quad mono, to sterero to more complex dual stereo configurations, you can have 'em all at the twist of a knob.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "And excellent value for dual stereo and quality build"
Sound: The sound is clean but a little weak - this is based just on the factory presets, so it might be tweakable Feature: Excellent features - just about every reverb parameter known to humanity is available, and the interface is clean and easy to use. I would have liked the ability to link together more effects, but for the price running two on each engine in dual stereo is pretty cool Ease of Use: Like I said above the interface is very clean and easy to use. The user manual is a little cryptic about input/output configurations, but it's easy to figure out when you just plug cables in and see what you get Quality: The quality appears to be good - solid construction and the knobs and buttons seem very durable. It should survive in a rack for a long, long time. But of course the real test here is to actually see if it survives for a long, long time Value: A great multieffect for the price. It appears the only real difference between this model and the M400XL is this has 1/4-inch input/output and the XL has XLRs. I chose this for the flexibility but I imagine you might get a bit cleaner sound with the XLRs. I use high-quality balanced cables though, so there shouldn't be that much difference Manufacturer Support: Just based on the user manual I gave it a 6 - but since I haven't needed to call them I guess that's the best I can do The Wow Factor: To be honest I was more interested in the TC M-One, but I went with this because it was $50 less and had the dual stereo mode. I still may get an M-One to keep this company in the rack Overall: If it survives (and that's an open question with just about all equipment these days) I should be running this for years. It may get replaced as my main mixing 'verb, but I can see a place for it running in-line as well.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Nice piece"
Sound: I haven't heard all of the "high end" reverbs that a lot of people talk about, but I can get a great sound from this unit and that's what's important. Feature: This thing can be used as a plugin and that's really nice. Shortfall is that it's either VST or AU, so Pro Tools users will have to use a wrapper I believe. But that's only for plugin capability. There's still a standalone software editor. Ease of Use: I haven't tried to use the front end of this device (buttons and controls). I hate reaching for anything other that controls on my mixer. So I can't tell you what it's like to tweak the hardware. But the software makes it very easy to use and tweak if necessary. Quality: It's a small unit for sure. Full rack space, but half the depth of the average rack piece. But it's made of metal. The ears are kind of sharp too. Make's me think you could really hurt yourself when it's not in the rack. Value: I'd go on a limb and say it's an excellent, and very useable piece for the price....or just period. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealth with them. The Wow Factor: I'm impressed. Not sure if that's saying much. Of course items like this are subjective. My opinion is that it's a very useable piece. Overall: I love the presets and the tweakability. I like even more that you have two machines in one, potentially even four.
