Multiple Processor FX

Lexicon MPX 1

The Lexicon MPX 1 is a killer multi-effect processor, and even though it can be considered the baby brother of famous PCM-line, it consistently got rave reviews from all kinds of users, and it's a superb addition to any composer's arsenal.

One of the strong points of this multi-fx is the dual-processor - with one always available for high-quality reverb algorithms.

This Quality really shows - as one can hear from any of the may presets on this box.

The rooms in particular are exquisite, and donate a veil of realism to any vocals, instruments, or samples you run through.

The halls are also superb, and perfect for vocals and drums


The multi-effects are in vast quantity, from phasers, to flangers, to multi-tap delays... all of high-quality.


Lexicon MPX 1 audio demos

Here below are some of the MPX 1's factory presets.

I used a Roland Fantom XR and a Roland V-Synth with their internal effects turned off for the examples.  The signal is first heard dry, then through the processor.
