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.

      Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

      This unit is noisy to the point of unusable in my effects loop. I have it running off the back of my 5150 III head and it hisses to no end, despite top of the line cables and a Furman power conditioner. Also it squashes the tone of the amp - makes it sound thin. I don't recommend this unit for guitar effects loop use. I thought Lexicon would be top of the line. I have heard better reverb from pedals.

          Read the instructions! That's all I can tell you. I'm a drummer. That's what I do. But recently I have become the "sound guy" too. So I got a nice mixing board, and this processor. Read the instructions!! lol.. If you follow directions, it works great!

              Live keyboardist

              from N.O. Louisiana

              Comments about Lexicon MX200 Dual Reverb/Effects Processor:

              This is the perfect effect unit for a keyboardist looking for an easy to operate proccesor. I figured it out right out of the box without looking at the manual and this is the first proccesor I've ever owned. The delay settings are quite easy to program as there are only three knobs and a tap tempo function. Highly recommended.

              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.
