Multiple Processor FX
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.
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.
