I think 4 mono and one stereo if I recall correctly.

Yeah the 2290 has a sound of it's own.Same with the ADA digitizer, also has a sound of it's own.

@ Chamai,

     If you need help understanding the manual for the PCM, just start a topic for it, and I'll help with it as far as I can. I do have a decent understanding of their programming based on the LPX and MPX series processors, so I may be able to offer a little clarity on many things in the PCM series.Eventually, I may buy a PCM 80, since I've wanted to get into the PCM 70 for the longest time, and the 80 offers me the routing that I prefer.

   @ Chamai and MJMP,

   If the PCM needs repair, don't bother going to Lexicon. They don't support any of the older gear anymore because of the availability of parts. It's the same for the 2290 and the older Eventide gear like the H-3000's. The change in technology has made many of the parts used in these things obsolete. Related to this subject-Fender: I own two of the G-Dec Combo Amps from them which are great practice amps and also great for writing too, but no longer made. The G-Dec 3 series was by far the most advanced, but only made for less than two years! The parts used in these amps were no longer being made, so they had to drop them from their catalog.

   @ Van Sinn,
   I totally agree with you that Petrucci sounded better with the Eventide, Lexicon, and TC Electronic gear, that equipment just sounds better than any of the modeling gear. But because of the change in technology, and the physical stress on the older gear by taking it on the road, combined with the unavailability of replacement parts, John had to look to something that is current and serviceable to take on the road with him, so the Fractal may be what gets him close to his sound.

I got my hands on a TC2290 service manual and there are a few obsolete parts in it but nothing that you can't buy NOS. So from my point of view still fixable.

Yes, the 2290 is a great piece of equipment, but you should be able to get all the effects from the 2290  in the D-Two delay.

i dont doubt that. i am sure modern processor has way more processing power compared to back then. don't look 80's enough. my g major and my tuner bothers me because it looks too modern. haha

Well the D-two and the 2290 work way different and don't sound the same IMHO.The D-two has a DSP and the 2290 works the old fashion way with plain RAM memory.So sound is converted to digital and then pushed into RAM were it's delayed ,then back to analog.More or less the same way as analog delays with BBD chips, only here they use RAM memory.

BTW all the ADA digital delays work like this.

   Now, I didn't know that about the D-Two. I can understand why they wouldn't sound the same.

I had a D-Two last year for about 6 months. Didn't like it at all. On the good side it has multi tap delay, very nice. The chorus is usable, flanger is awful. You only get reverse, ping pong and dynamic delays. For the price your better off getting a g major2. You get all that plus a dual delay, comp, parametric eq, intelligent pitch shifter, noise gate and reverbs. A much better deal for the price.  :thumb-up:

SPX 90s were great in their day, I still have one I use for snare reverb.  But they are mono in stereo out and only do one effect at a time, except you can have a short pre-delay with reverbs... I've liking the delay and reverbs in the TC M One I have in my studio rack.

Plus they weigh a ton and can be tricky to match up the latency.
