One hardware verb box. Print mix and overdub?

One hardware verb box. Print mix and overdub?

Oh boy! So I'm finally getting my Lexicon MPX-1 to speak my language in the reverb department. I've programmed a few verbs I'm really diggin', and they work for drums, guitar, bass, and even vocals. Great unit! The problem is, there are too many cool sounds in this thing.

I've been content with using the same setting for all instruments per song and have it set up on 2 Aux sends. But now I've found these killer delay/ reverb/ chorus settings with some cool panning effects, and want to use it for a guitar track. This would require printing what I've got now and freeing up my box to use for this guitar track. This isn't really a problem, I would just have to sculpt my future vocal track into this instrumental and use up two more tracks in my Akai. I could always just print this new part, and then return back to regular settings for everything else. OR i could buy another box.heh

What have you guys done about this type of thing? Just wondering if I'm overlooking something ovious.

Cheers,
Steelyfan

Print the crazy guitar effects, etc. and leave the vocal processing for the final mix. The vocal will always require fine tuning down to the last second. Or re-mixes. Or...

But a panned delay, crazy chorus guitar effect... you usually know when you've got it. Print it. Save the original. heh

This is the correct answer. You will eventually. It is your destiny.

You could print the FX return on an audio track, and free up your FX unit for other duties.
