Lexicon Unleashes MX300 Effects Processor
Lexicon has unleashed the new MX300 which takes several features of the MX400 and packages it into a more affordable unit.
All parameters of every reverb, delay and dynamic effect in this processor are available inside any PC VST or Macintosh AU compatible DAW program just like a software plug-in. Just link your computer to the MX300 with a USB cable and control automation and recall parameters – you receive the sonic benefits of Lexicon hardware without bogging down your computerâ€™s CPU. Lexicon also provides the MX-Edit Librarian software so users can store and recall custom programs or pull up an unlimited number of Lexicon settings.
The MX300 lets you switch effect routings easily via front panel controls, so you donâ€™t have to spend time behind your rack changing cables. Dual Mono sends the Left and Right input signals through Effect 1 and Effect 2 respectively. Each signal is then routed to its respective output, completely independent from the other. Cascade (Series) sends Left and Right input signals first through Effect 1, then through Effect 2, and then routed as a stereo signal to their respective outputs. Dual Stereo (Parallel) routes Left and Right input signals through both effects independently. Both Effectsâ€™ output signals are then mixed together, and routed to both the outputs as a single stereo signal.
