    A True Multi Effects Unit

    The PCM92 is a true Multi Effects unit. The Lexicon reverbs are astounding. The other effects are not just fill-ins; they are stellar. Every effect in this unit is well implemented. The construction of the unit is top flight- all metal enclosure and faceplate - made in USA. Everything on this unit feels solid. The OS provides for deep editing to achieve about any effect you want.
    Sweetwater allows you to return any item within 30 days that you do not like. I will not be returning this unit. Like other people have stated about their Lexicon units- "they will have to pry the PCM92 from my cold dead fingers".

    Stunning, powerful, and complex

    Packed into this solid, AMERICAN MADE unit, are 4 decades of industry leading reverbs, including the "classic" Lexicon sound and new variations that are true to their roots but offer new possibilities. The reverb is stunning. One note about Lexicon reverb for those who haven't experienced it - the magic of Lexicon does not happen when you "solo" a track with the reverb, the magic happens when you hear the reverb in the context of the complete mix. Lexicon reverbs have a way of blending into the mix in a magical way that allows you to hear all of the rich lushness of the reverb, without having your music washed out or diluted.

    The effects are also quite good - delays, chorus, flange, resonant effects, fattening effects, and so on. The creative options are insane.

    Many reverb units give you a half dozen parameters that you can tweak, but the parameters on the lexicon seem limitless. While the most common ones are conveniently visible and tweak-able at a glance, with a little time spent exploring you can create amazing sonic textures with a level of control that is mind-boggling. Honestly, the power and complexity of this unit will likely overwhelm the average home studio guy. Never fear, there are over 700 presets... but, the menus and function of this are also complex because this unit is so flexible, it can be configured so many different ways. You can't just scroll through a list of 700 presets - you select a type of configuration or a type of effect and then you can go through the presets applicable to that particular configuration or effect. The unit can act as 4 virtual machines, processing L/R signals separately, together, or separately and then together. Many a novice, and even many an experienced person, will have to slow down and actually read the manual to get the most out of this unit.

    I'd rate this a 5, but the complexity of the unit does offer something of a learning curve. Sonically, the rating is off the charts. For customizing/tweaking of sounds, the rating is also off the charts.

    This is a serious tool that will elevate your sound. In the hands of a novice, the included presets will provide great satisfaction once they are comfortable navigating the configuration possibilities. In the hands of a person who can patiently explore all that this has to offer, I think they will find it to possibly be one of the most advanced, most powerful reverbs ever made available in a rack unit.

    Made in America, stunning sound, limitless tweak-ability - whats not to love?
