Any new Lexicon reverbs ?

I remember a while back, on this forum (or another), a representative from Lexicon said that they were working on a new unit thet would be price wise between the PCM91 and Lexicon 300 (a higher unit than PCM91 but smaller than the 960l's). Any sight or rumors of this at AES ?

Since the release of the stereo version of their 960 they seem to have fallen into a deep sleep

Looks like they did wake up long enough to raise prices on the 960's though. OMG, the full model is listing for $22,000! That's crazy.

Think I'll hold on to my M300. In fact, I'm gonna fire it up right now.

I don't think they've fallen into a deep sleep...they've released a few computer interfaces and a cheap stereo reverb...just don't seem to be doing much in terms of new higher-end boxes. I'm not sure how much of a market there is for that stuff right now anyhow, though...

I wish they would have build a 1u unit with the 480l algorythm like Quantec QRS did with their Yardstick , Tc 6000 with the Tc 4000 , and Kurzweil Ksp-8 with the Rumour and Mangler , you know , the Lexi guys aren't making any money from the 480l getting more and more expensive in the used market , even just with digi i\o , a unit like that can be a best seller .

Sure , but i've been through tons of discussions comparing the 300l with the 480l
and they almost never come equal , have you ever a\b them ? do they realy share the same hall algorythm ? it's interesting to find out if anyone has a\b'd the units through their digi i\o , if they realy do have the same hall algorythms i will buy one as soon as i find it

Anyone check out Lexicon's web site? If I didn't know any better, I'd think that they don't even make FX anymore:

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering for a second there

I have an old Lexicon PCM 60 and I LOVE IT. I don't see the need to upgrade at all, especially since I mainly use it as a "vibe" effect for tracking vocals that does not get printed.

Also I used to own a Lexicon PCM 42 and sold it (admittedly for a massive profit on eBay). Definitely wish I kept it.

It's been said before that the M300 presets aren't that great. This may be one reason that people have dogged it in comparisons with the 480L.

The 300 just needs a good tweaking. I don't think it has all the 480L algorithms, though I could be wrong. It's got the Stereo Pitch Shift and some other good stuff. Most people seem to prefer it's Plate sound. I'm glad to have one, and a pair of pcm42's that I bought a while back.

I've used both a ton.

The snare plate sounds almost identical.

The 300 doesn't have the 480L hall algo(it does have the randomn hall).

It has a little bit of zip to the sound while the 480L envelopes you.

The snare plate is useful to me.

If you want the hall programs than spring for a 480L.

I'm gonna get Jim Williams to mod my M300. I hear his Lexicon mods are very good. Maybe it'll be more envelopey afterwards. Still no Hall algorithm. Bummer.

I'm using an IR of the 960 Jazz Hall preset in Space Designer. It's got kind of a sweet sound actually, though I'm sure the real thing would kick it's ass all over the place. Space Designer tends to be a bit dark, even with imported IR's.

I just fired up one of my Sony DPS V77's, and the Concert Hall sounds pretty nice for one sort of jazz/classical tune I'm working on. I think I might need a stereo 960 though.
