OVERVIEW

2 processors, 2 applications, one rackspace.

32 legendary Lexicon effects are packed into the Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor, a rackmount processor equipped with USB so it can be used as a software plug-in. It's got raw dual-processor power; instant front-panel access for live performance; and rich, smooth, complex processing algorithms for the studio, as well as specialty effects and dbx dynamics. Every effect and parameter is instantly accessible by a single button push or knob turn, and the powerful editor/librarian software gives you intense, under-the-hood control.

The USB interface provides intuitive cross-platform VST and Audio Unit plug-in control, allowing the MX200 to function as a hardware plug-in. The MX200's processor still handles the processing load, but you control it through your computer, with full automation and recall features. MX-Edit, the included cross-platform editor/librarian software, lets you create, edit, compare, save, and load reverb and effects programs.

You can use 2 reverbs or effects at once in one of 4 flexible routing options: dual mono, cascade, dual stereo (parallel), or mono split. There are 99 carefully crafted Factory programs and 99 User programs, front-panel controls for Input Level, Mix 1, and Mix 2 Wet/Dry controls, Routing button, independent Tempo, Bypass, and 3 control knobs for each Processor, Program Select knob, Audition button (to preview the selected effect), and Store button.

The front panel Active Reverb/Effects Matrix displays which 2 effects are active, delivers single-control access to all functions, and lets you quick-audition any preset with five settings. Dual independent processor control areas with dedicated Effects Select, Tempo, Bypass, and 3 parameter control knobs provide access and control over critical parameters. LEDs illuminate to indicate any change from the 99 Factory or 99 User Programs.

Bought the MX200 to replace an Alesis MidiVerb4 that died. The Alesis is a good effects unit but not what I'd consider a good choice for musicians who need a processor that is "road tough". That said, the MX200 is all I expected it to be. It is is NOT what I'd label a "pro studio" unit, but does the job for me as a songwriter and recording demos for publishers. It appears to be tough enough to be a piece of gear that can take the banging around that travel entails so I'm sticking with this choice. Found no problems with hum or background noise. I love the MIDI functions and hands on controls. I'm extremely weary of menu driven gear. Give me a knob and let me tweak it to what I like!! Don't make me fight a bunch of menus to only forget where the heck I was at to adjust some parameter buried in software.

I like it!! I'd recommend this to anyone who travels and plays live for vocals or instruments. My bottom line - the MX200 is well suited for live performances and can hold it's own in the home studio for demos.

My primary need for this was in the effects loop of my guitar amp. Having hooked it up, I was surprised to hear a very noticeable drop in volume and tone quality. My email to Lexicon was answered as follows: "The MX200 is intended for use with line level input and line level output signals. Unfortunately, it may not perform as well with guitar amp effects as it would on a aux send and return on a mixing board."It's a great sounding reverb and effects box for the PA - that's why I've given it generous ratings - but if you're a guitarist, you might want to look elsewhere.

Noise Maker

By Squeezebox 4.0

from OKC, OK

Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

Bought one of these to replace an old Peavey effects unit. As soon as we plugged it in we noticed a very pronounced high-end hiss. Only way to tone it down was to try to EQ it out. (the input/outputs had to be turned almost to zero to quiet it down - so what's the point?) Ended up yanking it and keeping the old one. Friend of mine recently had the same experience in his set-up. If only he had asked me first. Look up other reviews about this product, it also has a display glitch that causes it to randomly scroll through different effects settings. This is unacceptable in this day and age - even at this pricepoint. It is now sitting in our "just in case something breaks" pile.

Lots of effects, but kills your tone

By Northwest Mike-44n0o

from Portland Oregon

Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

I bought the Lexicon MX200 because it had so many effects and possibilities, but it totally kills my guitar sound. Switching on simple tremolo for example, you can hear your volume cut in half (even with the output knob fully cranked) and almost like brick-wall compression. This unit is shipping back.

Great Reverb but NOT A PLUG-IN

By Snowmann002

Ask me a question

Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

Bought the MX200 from Musicians Friend because it was advertised as a plug-in effect. Not true. While it is a fine outboard reverb/effects unit worth every penny, it does not function as a true plug-in effect. A Lexicon support tech basically confirmed this to me while discussing hookup. You can control the various settings from your DAW through the USB connection, so this is handy if the unit is not mounted within arms reach in your studio. You cannot add it's effects to an existing track as with other plug-ins. You must send that track's output to the MX200, then come back into the DAW on another track. Lexicon did say they were considering offering some low cost true software plug-ins. Their currect plug-ins are very costly, but of course quite good. I gave it an average overall rating because I think the advertising is deceptive. I use it on an interface insert for the vocal mic channel.

    The Reverb unit does what it was designed to do & does it very well. Very versatile, lots of parameter adjustments available, very intuitive controls. Very solid construction.

    Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

    Good unit to add to any rack.. I home built the two switch TRS foot controller. I can't find any info on which (5) five pin midi controller is the one to use. I definately like the detuner and the delay features. I would recomend this unit to any one looking for a great digital reverb effect.

    OK, but not what I was looking for

    By chop883

    from Clarkston, MI

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

    I owned the MX200 for about a year and a half running it in a rack with a Marshall Tube preamp and poweramp for guitar. I found, like another reviewer mentioned, that the factory presets were totally unusable for any situation. The reverb was not impressive and in general, I never used it because of that. The strong points of this unit are that it has two independent channels and multiple routing options. In addition, it is midi cabable. All most people really want is a good sounding reverb setting and they stick with it. Surely, between the multiple routing options, varable mix amounts both on your amp/PA and this unit, and the multiple reverbs this offers, one should be able to find one they like. For my gear at the time however, I just never really did, but that is not to say it cant be found with this device. Some other very strong points to this are the delays and the pitch shifter. Try to find a decent pitch shifter and a single delay box and you've dropped over 200 bucks. This unit has some decent delays if you are willing to spend time with them, and it has a decent pitch shifter for harmonizing. That makes it useful to have around, especailly for someone that rarely uses most effects, but wants the all in one solution around just in case. I eventually did sell my MX200, but, I have yet to find a good replacement unit or even some decent stomp boxes that sounded alot better. Not a bad choice if you are short on cash. But for the professional studio producer or musician, not the best use of funds either.

    Not optimize for vocals

    By Kawale

    from Earth

    Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

    I had this unit for about a month and it did what it claimed to do, give you a reverb and delay at the same time. It's also cool that it has an option to use as a plugin for your computer via USB. I don't know how many people will actually use this. If your looking for a reverb for vocal use, don't waste your money on this. The reverb lacks spaciousnes and lacks realism and they really sound like a karaoke reverb you buy at radio shack. If you plan on using it for instruments then this might be for you, for studio vocals look elsewhere.

    One word for this piece--BEAST

    By Big Izzy Wignall

    from Fishers, IN

    Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

    I'm a high-school musician, and I'm buying a sound system to start performing around the area with. I bought this to add some effects to my vocals, and oh my goodness, this thing is AMAZING. Don't go with any cheapy companies like Behringer or Nady for effects like these. This unit is simply UNBEATABLE. Being able to do two effects simultaneously is awesome, and the knob-lightinterface is very EASY and very USEFUL. The sounds are amazing, there are so many different combinations of custom sounds you can create, and it is GREAT for live performing. Also, if you use recording software in the studio, this product has a USB port that allows it to be used as an effects processor for recording--which equals AMAZINGNESS! :]The reverb effects are great, but what gets me is are the delays. They sound like something you'd here at a Coldplay concert or something :] I am 100% satisfied with this piece, the sounds are AMAZING, I'd definitely recommend it! :]
