Lexicon LXP1/LXP5
« on: Time Format »

I have a half-rack space left and I have always been curious about these units.  Anyone have any experience with either the LXP1 or LXP5?  I've consulted the manuals for both to learn more about their functionality, but it was like reading the operations manual for a space shuttle.

I had heard they are fairly complex units, IIRC MJMP has some experience with them  :dunno:

Mmmm no not really, I have a lexicon MPX1, not a LXP1  ;D

But from what I can see they don't "look" difficult, but I can be wrong  :facepalm:

These look like half-rack versions of the MPX-110.

   I have one of those, and simple to set up and operate. It's also very limited in it's capabilities too.

   It can only receive and broadcast on MIDI channel 1

   Editing is no where near as in-depth as the MPX-1 or LXP-15. You are limited to the ranges of the knobs on the front panel.

   There are a set of factory installed effects combinations that you can choose from with the front panel rotary selector. You cannot create custom combinations.

If those are considered the negatives, then the positives would be:

   You do get Lexicon quality Reverbs, Chorus', and Delays.

   These Harman-era Lexicon effects can be had at very affordable prices, as opposed the high end used Lexicon gear. I bought the MPX-110 for $45.00 USD.

   Set up and use is as easy as stomp box effects, (which is what I consider these to be, in a rack case).

 I hope that's helpful.

It's very helpful.  I just picked up an LXP15 for free because it was broken.  Spent about $83 fixing it, so I already got a deal, but the damn thing is like operating a space shuttle.

Hey Chip,

     The LXP-15 is a powerful machine. You can use that in a lot of different ways
     I've used it in a PA and studio situations, and I've also used it in my MP-2 rack, and it is a great processor! I had mine upgraded to the LXP-15 II.
     I think I bought mine at a pawn shop for $200. Not a bad deal at the time.

     Spend some time with the parameters and the editing, it's worth it :thumb-up:

Have you ever tried to send it to MIDI clock via sequencer or DAW?  I've been working on that for a couple of weeks and it doesn't seem to recognize the project tempo.

    No sir! I haven't tried doing anything like that, but I'll have to dig out the manual for the LXP-15 and see if I can help walk you through the issue. There's only about 4 places that manual could be, I just have to remember which one :facepalm:
