Story


The Lexicon PCM 80 brings you exciting effects with extensive processing control capabilities, and uncompromising sonic clarity. The Lexicon PCM 80 contains a built-in library of 200 preset programs that provide a comprehensive array of effects ranging from beautiful and lush to completely wild. The presets are organized into 4 banks of 50, and functionally grouped for a wide range of applications. Be sure to experiment with all 200 presets to get a feel for the full range of Lexicon PCM 80 capabilities.

Every preset has one or more of its parameters patched to the front panel ADJUST knob, giving you instant control over the primary aspect of the effect – without going into Edit mode. In the preset, Concert Hall, for example, Mid Reverb Time is patched to ADJUST. When you turn the knob you will adjust the reverb decay. In Prime Blue, ADJUST is patched to several parameters, so that turning the knob changes the effect from a tight chorus, to a chorus with recirculating echoes and, finally, into a reverb.

The Lexicon PCM 80 uses 10 stereo algorithms to create different types of effects. Each algorithm includes an uncompromised stereo reverb effect, as well as several voices of additional stereo effects. There are two general classes of algorithm:

4-Voice and 6-Voice. The 4-Voice algorithms: Concert Hall, Plate, Chamber, Inverse, and Infinite each combine a specific type of reverberation with a 4-voice, general purpose, stereo effect “toolbox” as well as additional post-processing for the reverb. The 6-Voice algorithms: Glide>Hall, Chorus+Rvb, M-Band+Rvb, Res1>Plate and Res2>Plate each combine a specific type of reverberation with a specialized 6-voice stereo effect.

All Lexicon PCM 80 algorithms include several parameters that make it possible to create dynamic spatialization effects for 2-channel or surround applications. Check out the Ambience Effects in Bank P1 and the Spatial Effects in Bank P2 for examples.

The Lexicon PCM 80 gives you a unique set of tempo controls. Tempos can be tapped in with the front panel Tap button (or an assigned controller) or “dialed-in” in BPM (beats per minute) on the display. The Lexicon PCM 80 also lets you generate MIDI clock from your tempo, as well as receiving MIDI tempo from an external sequencer or drum machine. In the Lexicon PCM 80, tempo can control LFO speeds and Time Switch controls, as well as all delay parameters, ensuring that all of your modulations are in tempo with your music. You can even set independent rhythmic values for different parameters within a single program on the Lexicon PCM 80.
