Sweetwater Advice

Jeff Hollman

The PCM96 is Lexicon's stunning new hardware reverb. The new modern DAW integration is great, along with 96kHz support... but the sound is still that classic Lexicon reverb that you've been hearing in recorded music for the last few decades!

Joseph Secu

Harness the full power and glory of Lexicon in just one rackspace! With the PCM96, you'll be able to take your reverb and effects to a whole new level.

Kenny Bergle

Owning Lexicon reverbs all my studio life (since if you didn't have a Lexicon in the old days, you didn't really have a studio...) I can't possibly imagine any other reverb sound that is so instantly satisfying. That is to say, when I think of reverb, I automatically think of the Lexicon sound. I believe that most of America (ok, the world?) has that audio-metric memory of Lexicon reverb and using Lexicon taps into the collective conscience that is the "hit" sound. Without a Lexicon, really one fights uphill for audio credibility, IMHO. On the other hand, Lexicon reverb is really the right tool to establish one's professionalism in recording. The PCM96 is an amazing feat of Lexicon technology and in a single rack space. The leader in reverbs does it again!
