We are still wating for Lexicon to release some chorus etc. fx for the 960.....I´m afraid without success...

I´m having a 960 & an Orville and they complement each other very well.
I allmost never use the Orville Reverb.

Lexicons were never my favorites for chorus.

Unless its a pair of PCM42's.

You can look elsewhere for useful modulation processors(especially chorus & flanging).

The only problem for you maybe that the really good ones don't have digital ins/outs.

The eventide makes an instrument sit inside a mix without taking to much room. I really like this reverbs...... heh

YMMV

The future of reverb is convolution processing, not DSP.

That being said, the H8000 is an amazing electronic instrument once you learn what its capable of and how to program with VSIG.

I'm about to buy the H8000, can anyone tell me how it is for guitar FX? I hear the choruses are rediculous.

I build one of those choruses heh

It is an amazing machine, with a learning curve. The distortions are a bit nasty sometimes and the presets are not a sit and forget type, but you can do amazing things with this machine. Things you cannot do with other machines....

The open architecture is an amazing feature, even when the UI is not very helpfull.

This machine is the heart of my setup.....

Kind regards,



Harrie
