LEXICON-Hall for pop music

Dantschge, 08.10.2009
In my mobile recording studio, there was still a flexible, functional and sound-like effect device. I went to the search and then came on recommendation to the MX series of LEXICON.

Especially the MX400 has the possibility through its four independent processors to calculate either a complex stereo effect (eg for mastering) or two simpler stereo effects in parallel, which are then equipped with the MX400 also with separate inputs and outputs, so that both effects Can be used completely independently of one another.

Finally, there is the possibility to use a stereo effect path on two independent mono effect paths (then with a single effect processor per effect path), which can then be looped directly into the signal path of two arbitrary sound sources. So you have then actually equal to four independent effect devices in one (well with all necessary separate inputs and outputs). With this maximum flexibility, you can solve complex sound engineering tasks for which several manufacturers would need several effects.

And the best thing about this is that no matter what mode the Lexicon MX400 is operated on, a pleasant, musical sound is produced which actually improves the expression of the sound source and not only distorts it, as with some other digital effect devices.

In my earlier studio productions, I used the MX400 as a stereo reverb device and got a great deal of approval for the sound quality and the modeling of the used effect (eg Federhall or Plate-Hall, both sound quite realistic, including chords, etc.). I use it mainly as a mixing-hall for pop music and am quite satisfied with the sound quality (especially in view of the moderate selling price of the MX400). Also live I used the MX400 already to the hammers of the master stereo signal path and am with the result very satisfied.

Recently, I noticed a shortcoming, which I would like to report here: When the MX400 in the loop to my DAW over the digital S / PDIF connections I had to realize that the device (after activation of the bypass) did not produce unity gain, but the digital Has weakened the input signal significantly towards the output.

Something like that is not synonymous with the use of the analog inputs and outputs is not, because you are anyway with the built-in input controls adjust the level in the device accordingly. But with the digital inputs, there is no way to adjust the MX400 levels and since I would have expected that what goes in front, also back again unprocessed when the bypass is pressed. My bypass setting was selected so that the input signal should be forwarded to the output unprocessed when the bypass is activated. Why not everything has arrived, unfortunately I could not understand. But I find it quite impractical. Therefore, a star trigger in the features.

... that's how Hall must sound

bongomichel, 15.01.2010
So far I've been working with a Yamaha REV5 for years. It simply has had the most parameter settings down to the last detail. Now the part came in the years, also good Hall devices are now only half as high - so had a new her. First came TC on the short list, but then I listened to the video in your product portal, and there it was only - you have to hear more closely. So right in the Hall crawled, features checked, read MIDI capability - ok, I do not have my setup fundamentally change - herewith!

Bought, racked, connected, heard - and: ... aaaah ... :-) This is Hall, as you like it. If you do not think about him, you barely notice him, but woe, he's missing. Then you realize that immediately. And that was the signal for me - quality is in here. If one does not consciously perceive a reverb, then of course it sounds like a real room sounds just as well. After all, one does not always consciously realize that. Noise, as in the REV5, is a thing of the past, when something rushes, then your own voice (sometimes it should), the reverb just remains reverb. The other effects are also great - sometimes you are almost inclined to take too much because they sound so nice.

There is also a service that is really fun. I create my songs with Logic, run the editor program via USB along the way and can test directly on the title, how it has to be balanced, without having to crouch down on the rack. Reading the display in the rack is not so easy: to accommodate 6 or 7 lines on a 1U high LCD display makes the font quite small - in half lying on the rack then not so nice ...

The software tool is a definite advantage for Lexicon. Easy to use, setting in real time from the computer - very good. Unfortunately, the manual is not available for download in German - so pick up well, who can not remember everything. However, the handle to the manual for the beginning is only necessary for proper connection to the computer. The operation of the software is self-explanatory.

At the gig, the part did its job quite reliably - everything is "online" via MIDI - timed switching, no switch-over, clear, warm sound on stage - what more could you ask for?

All for the price? I think a better sound than the one from this part is sure to be only 10 times "better" prices that are not for the little everyday gum. That's the part of my choice, and anyone who asks me gets this MX400 recommended.
