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 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 'em all at the twist of a knob.

"Love it and use at a big recordingstudio!!!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
I work as a sound engineer in a commercial studio in southern Sweden, we drive both soft presence plugs and outboards effects which are significantly more expensive than this machine. But a customer of us had wanted to use this power unit for their songs in the mix and I was shocked over the sound quality. Whatever soft presence plugs you use, then this device to whip the shit out of most of the plug format! Hot and clear sound with a much wider stereo image than any other unit in the same price range. We used some reverb and deleys for larger commercial mix and no one has commented on something negative in the effects loop, effects blend into the sound without any digital and cold sound. I recommend this unit regardless of price! It's up to you to use it properly so you can get the sound effects that have no limits. Regards Magnus
