Lexicon MX200
The Lexicon MX200 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. It also has a S/PDIF input and output and is powered by the power supply that is sold separately. It is a rackable unit and it will take up a single rack space.


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.


The effects on the Lexicon MX200 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. I have only used this effects processor with guitar, but it is suitable with any electronic instrument you want to plug into this. The hardware and plug-in sounds are similar in terms of sound quality.


I've been using the Lexicon MX200 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.

See details other opinions


Very well on this for me
super easy editing
I used the VST plug associated with a momment departure and return effect on my card
Today I do utise more plug I edited while still in facçade departure and return affect my sound card ....


Super good reverbs
I use most often on synth sounds sometimes with a slight compression
or pitch shifter or a slight detune
Chorus not really convincing

Insertion in a very good hardware \ software configuration


I have since December 2005
I love editing parameters and internal routing completely memorized
I try some multi-fx in this price range
quality / price more than correct
I would do this choice without hesitation ... to see in a few months ....

Lexicon MX200
Purchased unit 1 week ago, I put the notice after several requests on this site (including myself there are still days qq!)
The technology is digital, the camera, which can be used in series or in parallel, has 2 effects processors 100% independent - which is really a plus - and that can handle four different ways via a small button routing (single-double, cascade, dual stereo, mono-split)

Each processor has three knobs, one function "tap-tempo" button and a "bypass".

Quick list of effects:
- 16 reflections,
- 6 Delay / Echo,
- 2 compressors
- 8 effects known as "modulation".

Added to that 99 preset "users" + 99 factory presets

Input / Output:
- Midi (in, out, through)
- 1 x Pedal
- A standard USB port
- S. PDIF digital jack (?)
- And finally, 2 inputs and 2 analog outputs


The interface is very simple, almost perfect.

Editing is extremely simple: you turn the dial and you click to confirm the effect. It is even possible to make the simple rotation gives direct access to the effects (minor adjustments to the two small buttons above the wheel)

This recalls the principle of TC-300, due to two processors and their control via knobs. Obviously, the advantage of CT is that the two processors here are 100% independent, you can mix a chorus with delay, reverb reverb with another, etc ... - Which is not possible with the TC 300!

Everything breathes the utility and the evidence on this unit.
-> One minor complaint, the button "hearing". I clicked two times, I almost blow my amp 2 times (in fact this is music meant to test the effects, if there is no instrument at hand - if any, as is the cata said just before!).


No or very little wind.

Reverb: the choice is vast (hall, flat, room ,...). The reverbs "flat" or "spring" are the driest, the reverb "arena" provides a long-acting and broad. The sound is just right. The settings are fine, but not very powerful.

Delays: - for my taste - perfect for digital delays.

Compressor: not bad, breath much less than the M-300

Modulation effects: important choice. There are the classic chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, but also a "detune" (next to the chorus), vibrato, pitch: the three are interesting. The settings are slightly less powerful than the TC, but they seem less souflent they are "cleaner".
-> Note: be careful about the choice of routing, it affects the power of the easy effect, especially when it comes to reverb. By default, a position it seems to me, the reverb seemed to me at the very beginning, very "pale" low. In fact, it is best to choose routing cascade, and there one finds much more honorable reverbs.


I bought this camera a week ago and the picture is more positive: the overall sound is very correct, very clean (blows almost non-existent), the range of reverbs and delays is complete, the effects of "modulation" are well complete.

For a guitar is the perfect tool I expected (in lieu of a TC M-300 very similar but have some gaps in my opinion). By mixing a chorus or phaser with reverb, delay, we arrive easily to a good combination that brings out the harmonics of your acoustic instrument, giving it depth and breadth also.
The settings are fine, perhaps they lack, however, a little power to create more effects out of the norm. But it was not what I expected either. There are other purchase options for that.
I would say that the philosophy of the MX200 is a serious, comprehensive and functional, not excess.

In short, buy a very very good!

(Hope this helps others. If you have comments or questions, please. Ciao!)
