Lexicon PCM96 Stereo Reverb Digital Effects Processor

Enliven your sound with lush Lexicon stereo reverb, delay, and modulation effects. Tweak 1200+ presets and save your own to CF cards with the flagship PCM96.
An artful blend of heritage and innovation, the Lexicon PCM96 Stereo Reverb/Effects Processor delivers 28 new and legendary Lexicon reverbs, delays and modulation effects.

Appearing for the first time in the PCM96 are new Room and Hall algorithms, plus an assortment of new mono reverbs and effects. With decades of legacy products to pull from, the PCM96 also includes the finest collection of factory presets available in a stereo processor -- over 1200 and growing -- including some recognizable classics from Lexicon's immense library of sounds.

The PCM96 gives new capabilities to Lexicon's traditional reverbs by adding multimode filters at several spots in the audio flow. This allows more exact shaping of the reverb while still maintaining the distinctive Lexicon sound. All reverbs also have an "Infinite" switch that allows the reverb to run forever, a useful feature for creating unusual backgrounds and sound effects.

Lexicon's Room algorithm provides a more flexible alternative to convolution type reverbs. Reflection patterns can be easily selected, scaled and equalized -- all while simultaneously passing audio. They can be instantly reversed or combined with a traditional reverb to extend the decay or bring a stronger sense of "liveness" to the space.

With two channels XLR analog, two channels XLR AES/EBU digital I/O, and MIDI, the PCM96 easily fits into a variety of recording and live sound environments. In any application, the PCM96 delivers the versatility and sound that is read more unmistakably Lexicon.
