The Lexicon Mx300 has 16 different reverbs and a few different delays and modulation type effects. I have used the Lexicon MX300 on a few different occasions, it is a very easy to use and understand piece of gear. It will last you a long time if you take care of it or rack it and keep it out of the way of the rest of your gear. For the price of the MX300 and with all of the effects and re-verbs you get, you just wont get much better. The Lexicon MX300 has 2 channels and 99 presets (user). With 2 XLR analog inputs and 2 XLR or TRS outputs. The unit is very light and easy to carry in case you need to move it with your gear from place to place. There are a couple of different effects that are hard to get to though, you will have to navigate through a few different menu’s and screens to get to some of the dry and wet menu options. This makes it very difficult with such a small lcd screen that the MX300 has. If you get the Lexicon MX300 you can use its effects on almost anything, I have used it on several different projects that I have worked on.
When using the Lexicon MX300 you will find that it is very easy to edit your effects and change them the way you want them, outside of finding everything that is deep in the menu, you will have no problems getting the right sound that you want. The manual that comes with the MX300 is pretty easy to understand, I feel like it’s a little bigger than what I needs to be though. There are some wasted pages.
I have used the MX300 on almost any instrument you can imagine and I always get pretty cool stuff, I have even used it to process full songs when I am just looking for cool effects to add to my pre recorded sets that I will lay down at home before I hit a venue.
There are a ton of things you can do with the MX300, it is a lot better than the MX200 which I was using for about a year before I upgraded to the MX300. I am very happy that I have purchased this unit and will continue to use it off and on over the years to come. It never hurts to keep units like this around, they have a lot of useful effects.

The configuration is simple, the manual is clear, it is easy to select a sound or edit an.
In rehearsal, or in or on stage, this product is suitable.
In my case I bought it for a very precise application, add a short reverb on the output of my two JBL. So I put my stereo compressor and between my two preamps in a rack crest. The result is nice to the ear, barely perceptible given the power of pre amps.
I use it for at least two years. Given the price is important, there must be better on the market, but as I tell you in concert or in a rehearsal studio to accompany the singer's voice, it is perfect.

S. Durson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
For effects, y 'has a whole list ... Reverb course, but also flanger, chorus, delay (ping-pong, tape, etc.)., Pitch and even a compressor "simulating" the dbx (I do not use because I have a real DBX 1066: p) And us, it simulates not top but hey, it's a reverb we buy first.
It is pleasant to use, and especially the sounds are very easy to configure.
The connection is complete: XLR, Jack and especially USB + SPDIF for digital use.
This is a 19 'unit.
I put 8 because it could have the firewire as the MX500, it's Always less than cable.
Then the config ... Analog is easy, as any rack. As against the ad was written "for use as all vst" hehe, here it gets complicated.
That's about four months after the purchase that I finally managed to set it up in my cubase 4. You should know one thing also is that the effect is applied in real time, so it is necessary to move the whole piece to read-only treated in the stupid.
The manual is thin on the topic of using VST for he says refer to manual sequencing.
7, because I hassle to use VST (plus I had bought especially for that)
The effects ... hmm the top for the reverb.
But well as the use is long compared to a native plug and well I use very little in the end ...
I've had six months.
I use both in my guitar rack in the mixes made in my home studio.
On occasion, it is 200euros ... it's worth it. I bought it new at 380E.
The value for money is good.
I think I buy a new but we take into account the advanced quality of plugs, because it's still more convenient.
