Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Bundle

Years ago I owned a Lexicon MPX1. I was amazed to see they still sell the unit! Today I use Lexicon reverb impulse responses inside Altiverb. It gets me a good retro 80s reverb sound I like. I didn’t try the new native LXP bundle so I can’t tell you if it has that Lexicon sound. Honestly I doubt it but if anyone has tried these and they are “it” let me know. The main obstacle here as will be the $750 price. Many of the old hardware units are still around and operating. Will this software still be up and running in 15 years?

  1. I have an LXP-1 hardware unit, and I really love the sound of it! Wouldn’t switch it for a software based one, with all the hassle it makes (rlike outing stuff out and back into the DAW). I haven’t tried these neither, but so far I must say no software reverb was ever as good as a hardware one, so for things where quality matters I would always go for the latter. And it’s even cheaper. You can find used units for quite a reasonable price (200-300 € for the LXP-1).

  2. Aha, Altiverb!
    So… I always wanted to know one thing.
    Can I use it for mixing? Like when u do “3-dimentional” mixing and put sounds and instuments on different areas in space) Like something on background, something on foreground and, for example, something in the middle. U know.
    Like usually people use send channels for it. And put reverbs like ambience, room, hall on ‘em … blahblah.
    So, I always thought that IR reverb works a bit different than “standard” reverbs. Can I use IR reverberation for mixing??? (actually maybe everyone does it. I just don’t know.)
    They just sounds different)

    1. Good question. I do believe you can do what your asking. I often bus and pan my reverb… even in mono sometimes… I love that sound. Also you should look at Wavearts Panorama Plug-in: http://wavearts.com/products/plugins/panorama/

  3. If you’re gonna use it audio unit, beware of ZAPS! I demoed the other native pcm bundle, and upon loading 2 of the algorithms, I got a full digital blast coming out that would not disappear until I pressed play. They even acknowledged it was a bug, but there’s no way I’m going back again.

  4. I have a Lexicon Core 2 on a Windows ME machine just to print some reverb onto tracks. It’s sort of a pain but it also runs Logic and can do a solid 8 tracks of digital audio. I wonder how much improved the software DSP of the new version is like.

  5. The word from Lexicon is that this is not a reproduction of the hardware LXPs. Rather, the “LXP” title simply represents a reduced parameter set (and some differences in algorithms) from the PCM native reverbs.

    If in doubt, try them both….there are 15-day demo downloads on the Lexicon site.

    The prices are indeed high; hopefully these will come down in time. However, don’t hold your breath: there is enough demand for Lexicon reverbs that there might be little motivation for Lex to reduce prices.
