Lexicon PCM60 for piano/brass/strings?
I am putting together a bread-n-butter keyboard rig for club gigs, the final piece being the piano/brass/strings source.
I am using the Kurzweil 1000PX for the bread-n-butter sounds, but it has no on-board DSP reverb. Having been spoiled with Eventide 2016s and Lexicon model 200 in my studio, I am looking for economical compact equivalents to these reverbs to gig with. I want a good short room reverb to provide ambience for the piano, and plate reverb for brass/strings. MIDI and digital IO are not a concern, and I don't need multiFX just plain reverb.
The Lexicon PCM60 appears to be what I am looking for. I have read that it is a derivative of the Model 200 which is very appealing. I've heard some promising PCM60 sound samples on YT with vocals and synth, but nothing with piano/brass/strings.
What I plan to do is assign the L/R outputs of the 1000PX into separate outputs - one being mono piano and the other being mono brass/strings, and send each to independent PCM60s one set for room the other for plate.
The question for PCM60 users - do the room and plate reverbs work well for piano and brass/strings? Does the PCM60 create a stereo reverb output image from the mono input? I am aware of the current new reverbs, but I am pretty set on the classic Lexicon sound.
