Eventide and other stuff > Lexicon 300 Digital Effects System





Lexicon reverb at its best! Meet the Lexicon 300 Digital Effects System, the 480 sister processor.

Its Random Hall and Rich Plate reverbs are stunning. You can process a full mix thru them and get ambience glory and tone for ages. This is milestone reference you should use to judge anything out there. Great delay, diffusion and modulation effects, and a nice mastering algorithm too. This unit offers single machine and Split machines configurations, thanks to the two on board Lexichips. Single machine mode uses the whole power for spectacular reverbs, Split machines can run two different presets (or two instances of the same preset) in mono series or stereo cascading.

The 300 is truly a sonic legend you've heard on many recordings and in video productions. Its warm and huge sound is what people look for when making choices for depth, space, beauty. The 300 belongs to the elite of Lexicon masterpieces, the 200/224/480 legacy. Contact me for any special programming on this unit.

  EchoesPlate   EchoesPlate
The 300 Rich Plate is unique. It can randomize internal delays for more pleasant sound. 6 delay lines are available here. They live around the verb and contribute to create space reflections or real echoes effects, as in this audioclip. Gibson PAF ES335 here… for the tone connoisseur.

  Echorus2_Chorus   Echorus2_Chorus
Cascading machines. The classic chorus and echo effect going thru a second chorusing stage. Diffusion makes these echoes thick and wide.

  Prime Gold   Prime Gold
Multivoice chorus and modulated delays. Sounds like a rack of a dozen delays in a single box. Amazing chorusing.

  Lexicon300 Diffused Echoes   Lexicon300 Diffused Echoes
Delays are recirculated thru a diffusion stage which smears any attack transient, adding thickness and ambience to them. A classic Lexicon effect.

  DIG   DIG
Two instances of Dual Delays algorithms in stereo cascade. Each one actually offers 6 delays. You are only hearing 4 of them, 2 from the first machine diving into 2 delays from the second machine. The modulation and feedback structure makes this serial delays sound like echoes morphing into reverb. Inspired by the Strymon DIG pedal, this version takes series delays to a whole different sonic universe.

  Lexicon300 Oslo Hall   Lexicon300 Oslo Hall
An attempt to the classic 480 reverbs used on the ECM recordings, the most beautiful sound next to silence. Random Hall here adds a stunning modulation that never gets out of tune or disturbing the harmonic content of the piano. What a reverb.

  My Random Hall   My Random Hall
Random Hall for the Gibson ES335. Listen to the depth of this reverb, the stereo spread and the center elevation of the ambience. There are just no words for it.

Lexicon 300 "The Silk Tone Library"
Italo De Angelis Presets Library

Halls

   
  ECM Wide Hall   Warm spacious hall reverb you can use for your piano tracks. Don't stop there. It does sound great with just about any source and a whole mix thru it may acquire that silkiness you need.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  OSLO Hall   Deeper than the previous, lush. Just beautiful. Instant piano legend space!
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Manfred Hall   Shorter decay and brighter than the previous halls, this has a symphonic character.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  North East Hall   Well tonally defined space with a slight touch of early reflections for space cues. Guitar and wind instruments sound nice thru this.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Thick Hall   Denser mid-range colors and a few diffused echoes in the distance. Conservative randomization...
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  My Random Hall   Dark and deep long reverb with a soft diffused stereo slap. Even swinging!
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Echoes & Hall   A warm hall with some added delays. You may need both. Use ROLL to change the overall darkness/brightness, if you need darker echoes.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Humongous   Inspired by a Pcm80 preset, here's a really long and wide reverb, yet musical and never in your way. Decay ends and you are on the edge...
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
 

Chambers

   
  224XL Chamber 1   A large mid-range sounding chamber reverb for generic use.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
 

Plates

   
  224XL Plate   Warm mildly diffused plate reverb for just about any application.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  480 Large Plate   Slightly brighter than the previous one...
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Awesome Plate   Longer, brighter and more randomized than the 2 guys above, this one is a plate/hall "in between" reverb... but the low frequencies content is definitely plate-land.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Blues Plate   Tight and echoed! This is the plate you need for those classic solos. Guitar, sax, Hammond...
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Echoes Plate   This is a different one. You get a couple of dry diffused echoes which onset the plate verb on the fading echoes.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  ER & Plate   Stronger transients trigger diffused early reflections. Plate is quite long here and darker than the usual. You may change the colors with TDCY and ROLL, the first affecting reverb tone only.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Stage Plate   A plate reverb with just enough space clues to simulate a stage area. Nice on the whole band mix.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  Slap Plate   A diffused slap back echo and delays after the plate reverb.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
 

Effects

   
  Diffused Echoes   Stereo diffused delays! A Classic Lexicon effect introduced on the 224XL and available in the PCM70/80/81/92/96. A diffusor before the delays or inserted in their feedback path is what smears the attack and makes those echoes fat and real.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  EchoSpace 1   A HUGE space with diffused echoes for those special needs!
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  EchoSpace 2   Even longer decay in the same space (Size). Echoes bounce again...
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  The Abyss2   Inspired by a PCM80 preset... here's a vast reverb with rich bass frequencies content... lasting for a long time.

Setups

   
  PCM80 MULTI (Mach A > Mach B - Cascade)   -Comb>CircularDly-
features a very analog sounding chorus (microdelays based) into a classic Lexicon PCM70 preset, Circular Delays, which mimics a panning echo in 3 positions, R/L/C.
-300 Hall2-
The chorus and echoes fall into a nice hall reverb, completing this cool multi effects patch.
(download aiff/stream mp3 @320k)
   
  DIGS 1>2 (Mach A > Maxh B - Cascade)   -DIG 1-
Modulated 310/315 ms delays
-DIG 2-
Modulated 510/504 ms delays
This is a very special effect. Cascading uncorrelated modulated delays creates a dense field of echoes, evolving into ambient reverb. The beauty of this space has a whole different nature from traditional reverbs.
This Setup recreates a new modern sound from the Strymon DIG pedal... only with a much better sound, THE Lexicon sound.
