Lexicon PCM 91
The Lexicon PCM 91 is a digital reverb unit. It is rack mountable and it will take up a single rack space unit. It is a stereo unit and it has both 1/4 inch and XLR inputs and outputs. It has a memory card slot for those who have older units or want to store their pre set sounds on the memory card to swap them between different Lexicon units. I have only used the PCM 91 in the studio, but it would also work well within a rack based guitar rig.


The general configuration of the Lexicon PCM 91 digital reverb unit is basic for a unit like this, but does like a bit of figuring out if you are not familiar with effects like this. It is easy to get and control the reverb pre sets and parameters that this has to offer, and also won't take to long until you are making and storing your own. The manual for this is pretty complete, and is definitely good to have around while you are trying to learn how to use the PCM 91.


The sound quality of the PCM 91 is top notch. The reverb effects are full sounding and the unit is overall versatile in terms of the different types of reverbs you can produce with this. I have used the PCM 91 on a myriad of different instruments, including electric guitar, lap steel guitar, vocals, and snare drum. I won't ever record with this on my signal, but while mixing it can come in quite handy.


I've been using the Lexicon PCM 91 for about five years, and while it is a great sounding reverb unit, I find myself using plug-ins more and more for reverb. The reason for this is because it is much easier to control and save, and I can get some sounds that are comparable o this unit at a fraction of the cost. While the reverbs on this will probably be better than that of most plug-ins, sometimes the convenience of plug-ins can outweigh a slight difference in sound quality. This being said, if you are looking for a rack mountable reverb unit, you definitely can't go wrong with this, but the big price tag will make a lot of people shy away because they can get reverb within their digital audio workstations. Overall, if you want a digital reverb unit like this, this is worth a try.

U-FLYstudio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" this is a good machine"

Lexicon PCM 91
only unit dedicated to reverberation,
built around an aluminum frame, it is very thin outlook and absolutely no heating
I / O analog TRS and XLR digital AES EBU and SPDIF.


convenient, fast compared to the new PCM96,


less easy to include in any mix on the studio 70, 224X or 480L, anyway if you play with a 224X or 480L is after very hard to beat!!! !
live, I find that 91 is indeed the work in its programs and manufacturer équalisant a little effect return.

I love the real programem room, which is often the basis of all my other personal preset some halls of platforms and can not very convincing compared to my 224X


Today it is a machine used very affordable and there it gets interesting compared to the competition, to - € 800, this is a serious machine, not fragile, not heated, and has a sound rich with a wide range of possibilities in therm of pure reverb.

Lexicon PCM 91
High-end Reverb with his classical lexicon. Entrtées / output in analog and digital (AES / EBU)


To the Lexicon, it's simple publishing compared to older models.
This is complicated when compared to other brands like TC. But hey, there is progress then we will not complain ...


Excellent quality. I read earlier that Afien preferred the sound of TC. I also have the TC but the Lexicon is warmer and more "fat". However, at this level there is no "best" or "worse", there are more "different" and the PCM91 is very high quality.


I use it for several years (when it is output). Previously I used a PCM90 with the same sound, but less presets and digital outputs in S / PDIF.
This is a reverb that does only one regret: that of not having bought earlier.

The price, of course ... it is not accessible to all "home studio" (which also have no need of such high quality). But hey, when you love, it does not matter, it is well known. This is pro reverb in the sound, interface and price.
