Lexicon 480L together with 300L ? Reverb/Delay Processors (HW)

Lexicon 480L together with 300L ?

I´ve recently got a 300 L for the studio running also a 480 L, but don´t have a second Larc for the item ...

Tried to slave the 300L (just like an 224XL f.e.) - but it doesn´t work for me (also I heard about some people who had made this possible)

Since Larcs or LR-4 is hard to get I am wondering, if I just could build a "COM-PORT Switch" to just switch between the lex´s by hand ?

Anybody some hints ?

IIRC, it is only possible to combine a 300 and a 224, or a 480 and a 224.
Not a 480 and a 300, or two 480's etc.

But it's been a long time, maybe there is some "new" trick (after about 1990) that I am not aware of.

It will only work if you use a Lexicon LR4 router.

It actually works with pluging in and out the two units ...

although it´s not a very comfortable way :-)

Perhaps I´ll try to build a passive switchbox ...

If you're talking about 224xl, it will link w/ a 480L no problem without the LR4. Same for 2x480L: 1 remote control both units.
The 300L or M300 w/V3.5L eproms need a Lr4 to be combined w/ either the 480l or 224xl.
The 224 uses a different Larc remote than 224xl/300L or 480L, so in this case, you'll need the remote for each machine.

This is correct, and LR4's are hard to find.

What is equal to being rather expensive.

Thanx for your input ...

perhaps I should "tighten" my question:

Since Larcs and LR-4´s are hard to find and are expensive:

Both pieces run without a Larc and also

- walking to the machine room
- pluging the Larc in / out
- edit the other unit

works though it´s not very comfortable ... I assume to
just build a little switcher right next to the larc, where I
can switch between 480 L and 300 L for editing. Do you think
it will work reliably or could anything be damaged internally by
working for a period of time ?

The switching thing (A/B box or other) doesn't work. It confuses the LARC and sends it into error mode in which the LARC won't respond to either unit (trust me, I tried). The LR4 switch is the only way to control both units from 1 LARC, due to the two way communication of logic information.

Inside the LR4

I just popped the top on my LR4, and yes it is an active device complete with a Z80 microprocessor and a revisioned EPROM. All very nicely engineered of course.
