Lexicon LXP-1
The Lexicon LXP-1 is a compact multi-effects processor, but contains mostly reverb sounds. It also has chorus and delay tones, but again primarily has reverb tones. The unit is a digital one and is about half the size of a single rack mountable piece of gear, but isn't designed to be placed in a traditional rack space. The LXP-1 has stereo 1/4" inputs and outputs as well as MIDI connections and a 1/4" jack for a foot switch. The box requires a nine volt power supply.

UTILIZATION

Using the Lexicon LXP-1 is a fairly simple process, as everything is laid out as simple as possible. There are parameters for input, mix, output, decay, and delay, as well as a mode knob that has about 15 different settings include for two different small, medium, and large reverbs, as well as hall, plate, room, reverse, and gate reverbs. It then has two different chorus settings and two different delay settings. Everything you need to know is right on the front panel, so I don't think that you need a manual for it.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds possible with the Lexicon LXP-1 are varied and generally quite clean sounding. It is definitely impressive how many different sounds you can get in this tiny box. You're getting the classic Lexicon reverb sound with the LXP-1, although they sounds aren't as refined as more modern Lexicon units. The LXP-1 can be used on pretty much anything that you would want some reverb, which in different situations can be almost anything. While not the most impressive sounding reverb tones in the world, they are very clean and will do the job well for most situations.

OVERALL OPINION

Even though they no longer make the Lexicon LXP-1's, you can definitely find used ones without looking very hard. There are a whole bunch of different multi-effects processors like this one out there by made Lexicon, some better and some worse. The price of the LXP-1 is very reasonable which is one of the best parts about the LXP-1. If you're looking for some real Lexicon reverb in a very compact hardware unit without having to spend much money, the Lexicon LXP-1 is a great option.

Lexicon LXP-1
This rack halves, although two have two Delay and Chorus is really dedicated to reverb.
The facade is rudimentary editing, choose the preset, Decay, Delay.
For if we have against the RCM (remote control of the same brand), we then have access to 8 parameters for editing presets. And with this little plastic box, this is not the same machine.
I immagine, that it can dig a head, it is possible to access these parameters even in midi via a computer.
This is a half rack, very heavy and sturdy. Treatments are digital, Jack connectors, inputs and outputs L / R, Midi In and Thru (configurable via an internal jumper out to the remote V4.0).

UTILIZATION

Yes, everything is easy.
Only minor complaint we could make him, in the remote, if you are accustomed to that of his great sister, have not exactly the same logic. This is the setup button is used to change the preset, and not the Prog.
But there, nothing serious just need to get used to.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are very effective.
But we must know what it is based, it is in the old low-end brand.
So it is very "lexicon" as his, but in a cheap version. It blows reasonably, the "flicker" of Lexicon reverb, although "ferrailleuses" and unnatural are present.
In short, it's not very natural, it's not very discreet. But against this has a grain and a color that was renamed the brand. And frankly, it's rather nice and helpful on some guitars, vocals, drums and other.

OVERALL OPINION

In fact I ended up buying one at 80 € with the remote, because at that price no risk.
Knowing that it's been fifteen years since I croisais the studio, and with the 224 and 200 and PCM60 it is one of my favorite reverbs brand. (Note, I did not say so long as it arrived at the ankle of the other cited).

-Did you tried many other models before buying it?
I would not say that I threw one ear on all the models that exist in the market, but almost. In any case in respect of the Lexicon, I know absolutely everything and I'm not a big fan so far. This is also why I only have it in my possession. (I probably soon will complete a LXP5).

On the + side typed.
The - the next typed.

The price is excellent value at 80 € with the remote, it is a business.
By no cons, this is no longer the same reverb and not worth more than € 50.
With remote I would be very close to buying more expensive.

the particular feature I like most is that it belonged to Daniel Miller, I was over when he bought the multi numrique effect of lexicon and regret every day (sic), this Reverb has toured the plant, full of concert, and it starts a little tired but I'm attach trs.

Lexicon LXP-1
Indeed the half-rack format output the very late 80's, it has two input and output jack, a MIDI in and a thru, a footswitch input and location to connect the power 9V.
In front are 6 knobs and a rotary switch and a diode ddi messages to noon.
The edition of internal parameters is limited and extrment s'aparente an MPX 100.
rouve have indeed:
- A button to the level of
- A button for direct-effect shuffled
- A button to the output level
- A selector for Crant DIFFERENT algorhytms
- A button notched to the reverb time rglage
- A button notched to delay the rglage of pr

UTILIZATION

L or the machine is a rel interest is when a branch MRC, MIDI controller using edit multiple machines and storer of the brand. Indeed, it becomes possible to edit the 8 paramtres most current (decay, pr delay, size, HPF, LPF, low time x, diff ...) and especially to save these given in the MRC es, it is sufficient to recall through the notch of the tlcommande for recall directly into the LXP1

SOUND QUALITY

The quality of effects is done all of Actual even if the signal to noise ratio is not worth that of a machine rcente. All reverbs found the most common:
- Hall, medium, small, large, room, flat
- Reverse gate
- Delay, chorus.
as often in the lexicon flat ring done everything well, and thanks the MRC can be CRER of trs beautiful effects with short sizes small pices trs!

OVERALL OPINION

In short a good machine that finds its full effectiveness when she combines her sister LXP5 and controls both by the MRC.
