Overview

The Lexicon MX400 is a single-rackspace, 4-in/4-out unit combining an intuitive front-panel design with Lexicon's "Hardware Plug-In" technology, a unique USB connection, and a VST/AudioUnits interface for use with software recording platforms.

Studio pros will be glad to know that the units also feature a wide array of the rich, complex reverb algorithms, delays, effects and dbx dynamic effects that have made Lexicon a favorite for recording.

The USB Hardware Plug-In format gives you complete plug-in control over your MX400 within any VST or AudioUnits software environment, enabling you to control all automation and recall parameters exactly as you would with a software plug-in while enjoying the sonic benefits Lexicon firmware provides.

Equally at home for live applications, the MX400 supplies the FOH/live sound engineer intuitive front panel control with a backlit LCD screen for parameter displays. 4 in, 4 out 1/4" TRS balanced I/O. Also offers 4-channel surround algorithms.

Almost Perfect But...

By Robert Preston

from San Diego, CA

I just picked up one of these over the holiday and was super excited. It was relatively easy to set up using spdif for the audio. I use Ableton 64 bit and was surprised that after installing the MXedit software i did not see them show up in my plugins folder. Then I thought of course I can use JBridge to use these plugin because they are probably 32 bit. As you all know JBridge only works on vsts. I ran it found vsts for mx200 and mx300. Turns out there is no vst for mx400 and there is no free bridge interface for AU. Contacted the manufacturer add this is the response I got: Robert, Unfortunately there are no plans at this time to update MX-Edit to 64-bit. We do not have a VST version of the plugin for the MX400, AU only on MAC. Shane Vander Veur Technical CS Harman Signal Processing Sorry it's 2013 everyone has already or is moving to 64 bit. This could have been a nice addition to my studio...

Awesome Lexicon reverb sound and easy to use

By Chris Capozzoli

from Moorpark CA

This is extremely easy to use. If you treat this as two separate effects processors A and B which can have two effects each, you'll have no problems working with it. I like the fact that you load in user or factory presets individually into processors A or B. That's what makes this unit so easy to use. The reverbs are legendary awesome sounding Lexicon verbs. Chorus, DBX Compressors and DeEssers are good as well. Signal to noise is excellent. I can see myself using this in the studio as well as live, especially for the reverbs. If you want to run it as a multi-effects processor for a guitar just hardwire the stereo outs of A directly into the inputs of B. Or leave it hooked up to an effects rack with a patch bay so you can use it either way. The software is easy to use but I wish both A and B channels were visible at once on the computer screen. You have to switch between both. That would be useful especially as a guitar player setting up a string of effects. The main bypass switch is handy as well as the individual bypass switch. It's relatively easy to turn off each effect quickly from the front end panel. You can run the unit as dual mono input if you'd like for processor A or B. The older Ensoniq DP4 series allows that. With any effects unit you'll have to play around with the parameters for each effect to get more familiar with it. I wish I could monitor compression threshold levels realtime but that may make this piece of gear slightly more expensive. Overall I give this five stars especially for ease of use and sound quality.

GET ONE

By jeff deasel

from germantown, md

this unit is unbelievable. where do i start? i know that lexicon are know for their reverbs, which are, of course fantastic, but the chorus, in my opinion, is by far far the best i have ever heard, period. i'm not big on presets, on any unit, for that matter, so i really don't bother with them because the effects are adjustable in just about every way, which really is the point, isn't it? i just can't get over how sweet the chorus sounds. i also have the mx200, which is use for delay and the "desser" and that combined with the mx400 is just about perfect. and the icing on the cake? $300??? it's a steal as far as i'm concerned. if you are looking for a multi effects processor with everything you need, look no further, you WILL be happy. thanks lexicon

AWESOME!!!

By James Kreamier

from fairview Oregon

Alright, first off, the disc that came with this unit to use it as a VST plug for Cuebase was not compatable with Vista. This proved to be no problem as the download for Vista is on the lexicon web site. Secondly, Cuebase or other recording software will try to assign the mx400 as a midi device, and you will need to disable this function in your recording software for it to open the mx400 as a VST plug in. This was also a minor issue. If used as a VST plug in, the sound must be ran through the S/PDIF Digital Input/Output to your computer as the USB connection is not set up to run sound. Third, the mx400 has the best vocal effects I have ever heard. The presets are absolutly awesome and I dont forsee that I will ever have to make a custom setting. To utalize the full surround sound of this unit you will need a mixing board with aux 1 and 2 sends and 4 returns or a usb adapter that has at least 6 plug ins. Don't let any of this scare you, as this unit is awesome and well worth the few tiny issues I have ran into. If you are interested in taking your recordings to the next level or you just need an awesome live sound, the mx400 is the BOMB!
