Lexicon LXP-15
The Lexicon LXP 15 is a multi effects processor that is capable of being hooked up to your computer via USB and used as a plug-in as well as a piece of outboard gear. It has MIDI ins and outs and two 1/4 inch inputs and outputs as well. The LXP 15 is a very solid state of special effects with 128 presets(which is pretty standard) but its more than enough to get your started. All of the programs have at least five pages that have different parameters that you can adjust manual on your own. All of the functions are also accessible from the front menu which is great because it means you don’t have to go through a bunch of sub menus to get to where you need to be. Its great for the home and stage musician!


UTILIZATION

The use of the unit is easy to figure out as a piece of outboard gear, but can get somewhat confusing when using it as a plug-in. The parameters are pretty easy to follow and it is easy to scroll between all the different types of effects that this piece of gear has. I must note that the plug-in section of this unit can only be used as a VST plug-in and is not compatible with Pro Tools without the VST to RTAS adapter. However, if you have a compatible system you should be able to use all aspects of this unit pretty easily. The manual for this is pretty thorough and is useful when using this.


SOUND QUALITY

The effects on the Lexicon LXP 15 are usable and it is pretty versatile overall as it has a lot of different types of effects including reverbs, delays, chorus, flanger, vibrato, pitch shift, and tremolo, among a few other types of effects. Each effect has its own useful parameters that allow for a good deal of control over your sound. The overall sound quality is clean and the effects sound good for a unit this cheap.


OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Lexicon LXP 15 for about three years and I have come to like it for its convenience of having so many different effects in one hardware unit and plug-in combined. The price of this is really inexpensive and makes it a great deal. Lexicon makes some great effect processors, and even though this is somewhat low end model, it is great for the price tag. If you are looking for a hardware multi-effects processor that can also be used as a plug-in, this is absolutely worth a look as it is a great deal.

Audiofanzine FR's review

Lexicon LXP-15
(Originally written by oxyde31/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Monolithic converter (PCM54 BURR-BROWN) with dual processor! Not bad for its time!

CAUTION: All old Lexicon owners must change the chemical condensers which tend to leak. The acid corrodes the circuit boards (I serviced about 10 units within three years and they all had the same problem).

UTILIZATION

Stage and home studio

SOUND QUALITY

Very detailed, almost natural sound

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it pretty cheap because it had the problem I mentioned above, but I repaired it last spring. I used it for three jazz concerts last summer and it's a true JEWEL compared with the SPX9000 and other processors you usually find in live setups.

Setup's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The quality of a real Lexicon affordable"

Lexicon LXP-15
Multi-effect with 128 preset and 128 user locations. For the rest see the previous opinions.

UTILIZATION

Relatively simple to use multi-effects but still require a good understanding of the various parameters available.
It is less easy to program an MX but much more interesting.

SOUND QUALITY

Very nice reverb mixed with other style chorus, delay and pitch. The gate reverb is incredible density. The algorithm is a fantastic platform also finesse.
A little breath out, but nothing inherently disturbing.

OVERALL OPINION

The reverbs are quite dense and make them immediately think of the PCM70 and more simple. Here is the reason for my purchase. This is a great rack vintage reverbs as appreciated by some. Moreover it is really solid and well designed. It is far from certain plastic racks now.
I would do this choice with his eyes closed.

blackle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Still surprising!"

Lexicon LXP-15
Multi-effect processor that combines five algorithms: Delay / reverb, Pith / delay, Plate, Gate and chorus. It also includes a mode "Dynamic Midi" through this interface that allows management of 27 real-time editing parameters constituting the five proposed algorithms.
Steering the LXP 15 can also be done from the expression pedal connected to the five entries that make up the dedicated processor. The audio input and output jacks are connectors 6.35 mm in asymmetric links.
The Lexicon 128 is equipped with user memory spaces and 128 spaces "presets".
Treatment is of 16 bits at a sampling frequency of 31.25 kHz which results in a bandwidth from 20 to 15 kHz maximum.

UTILIZATION

Use of LXP 15 is very easy and much more friendly than a PCM 70 or MPX 1 for example. With the rotary called "page" is turned to select a page as "reverb" for example, where you select one of five settings available, via one of these five switches below the display or be visible in the second line the selectable parameters, we select what we want and the value is adjusted via the single wheel encoded on .. It could not be simpler ..
For the control of sound, they are easily adjustable either by foot or by potentiometer (optional), allowing a very simple way through the five entries "controllers" cited above, to control the value of any parameter, LFO speed, mix, re-injections .. This is configurable through its four patches, which can also assign any parameter to any other parameter. One can for example control the mix of reverb for the entry level ..

SOUND QUALITY

The reverbs are excellent, even for long simulations and their use is becoming possible. Delays and echoes are also excellent, more when they are made via the internal LFO modulate, we get surprising results. For example, echoes of the LFO modulation to add the chorus while changing the tone when delays become shorter or longer, just like an analog delay line or an echo chamber band ..
The Pitches on the other hand are a bit capricious and lack of stability, not an instrument to double an octave lower without hearing the noise, having said that the combined effects fortunately these masks imperfections.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good multi-effect possibilities endless, but unknown. This machine was purchased by my wife and preserved in spite of our purchase of another 15 LXP version 2, that's how we appreciate it! There can of course not compete with the range PCM, but it allows for effects that only he can do.

Moody 13's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Lexicon LXP-15
Multiple effects on the Rolls Royce of reverb and delay (a tad worse in delay in reverb, but ...). I am a happy owner of this machine since 2004, and I do not spare! Technology numrique, I do not know if the effects are ditables, they are enough for me as it is, that the quality! Connectivity Jacks in / out, MIDI In / Out / Thru, MODEL rack without worries! Lexicon live, even if it's still even more expensive than other brands that do this type of product (but we found there, for once, not more for nothing, I am fully satisfied with this product, which I do not spare it for the world!

UTILIZATION

Config gnrale very simple! I n'dite no sounds, effects Submitted enough for me!
The manual is excellent, you can even find it on internet!

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are ROYAL, I use in my recording studio, couple time to time with an Alesis Midiverb 4, 2004, less CHRE (and for good reason, but when even interesting) ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use this product since 2004, practical, IMMEDIATE, I had an Alesis dj Midiverb 4 and a Digitech Studio S 200 (not bad!). I had used in southern Animation Salon de Provence, and with the exprience, obviously I do it again this election!
