The other problem with that is memory. The reverbs run on a separate chip so you can always run a reverb. The other chip does not allow you to run very many effects on it at once. I can run a great pitch shift but no delay or chorus. Or a great delay but nothing else. So I paired it with my MP2. I run it in the MP2's loop with a 25% mix. I use chorus and other effects from my MP2 and use the MPX1 for the three things the MP2 doesn't have, i.e. Pitch, Delay and Reverb.

Has this improved in the later units ? I was looking at the MX300 yesterday and it looked like a good thing to buy but I'd want pitch shift and delay as well as reverb.

So how does that solve the lag Harley?

I'm not sure how it does it, I've just noticed that when I assign the Lexicon gear it's own channel and give it program changes directly, there isn't any lag in the effects switching.

That;s what I like about the Ground Control. It can be set up to control 8 MIDI units on their own individual channels independently. I use the odd numbered channels with my system, to control multiple MIDI units in the same rack. This in itself eliminates the natural 8ms lag that you get in a daisy-chain MIDI setup.

I used to be ambivalent. Now, I'm just not sure...
