The new MX500 takes our innovative "hardware plug-in" feature to the next level by actually streaming dual stereo audio via FireWire.
Like the MX200, MX300 and MX400, all parameters of every reverb, delay and dynamic effect in this powerhouse quad processor are available inside any PC VST® or Macintosh® AU compatible DAW program. But now the sonic benefits of Lexicon hardware can stay digital.
Of course we didn’t forget balanced 4-in / 4-out analog connections — you can switch back and forth between digital and analog I/O via software and automate either with our hardware plug-in.
At its heart, the MX500 is everything you would expect from the company that invented digital reverberation. Seventeen classic Lexicon reverbs, delays and modulation effects plus dbx® compression and de-essing. A generous LCD display and big comfy knobs you can get your hands around. A wealth of routing options from quad mono to dual stereo.
Get a demo at your Lexicon dealer. -Compare the MX500 to reverbs costing three times as much. And then ignite your next production with the power of the MX500 and FireWire.
The MX500 is perfect for band PAs, churches and clubs when it’s not working its magic in the studio. We know you need to be able to make changes quickly, so we designed the MX500’s intuitive front panel to be a bare minimum of knob tweaks away from any adjustment or effects change. For example, three individual, assignable parameter controls mean you don’t have to page through menus to fine tune a reverb tail. And because you can use its built-in dbx® compression and de-essing in tandem with reverb, the MX500 is the perfect tool for taming problem vocalists.
Finally, you can rely on the MX500 for years to come, through countless load-ins and load-outs — although its sound is A-studio-quality, we designed the MX500 to withstand dust, moisture, shock, power surges and all the other rigors of live sound use.
