The Lexicon PCM96 is a Stereo Reverb & Effects Processor delivering 28 Lexicon reverbs, delays and modulation effects. The PCM96 can be used stand alone or via FireWire straight into your DAW using the PCM Control Plug-In (VST, RTAS & AU - OSX 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6).
Appearing for the first time are new Room and Hall algorithms, plus an assortment of new mono reverbs and effects. With decades of legacy products to pull from, the PCM96 also includes the finest collection of factory presets available in a stereo processor – over 1200 and growing – including some recognizable classics from our immense library of sounds.
The PCM96 gives new capabilities to our traditional reverbs by adding multimode filters at several spots in the audio flow. This allows more exact shaping of the reverb while still maintaining the distinctive Lexicon sound. All reverbs also have an "Infinite" switch that allows the reverb to run forever, a useful feature for creating unusual backgrounds and sound effects.
Lexicon's new Room algorithm provides a more flexible alternative to convolution type reverbs. Reflection patterns can be easily selected, scaled and equalized – all while simultaneously passing audio. They can be instantly reversed or combined with a traditional reverb to extend the decay or bring a stronger sense of “liveness” to the space.
With two channels XLR analog and two channels XLR AES/EBU digital I/O, along with MIDI, Ethernet and Firewire connectivity, the PCM96 easily fits into a variety of recording and live sound environments. In any application, the PCM96 delivers the versatility and sound that is unmistakably Lexicon.
