Rackmount FX: TC or Lexicon?

I might be crazy, but I'm thinking of trying out a rackmount fx unit to provide my reverb and delay tones. I'll be using two amps, so I'd like one that has two discrete channels - delay on one side and verb on the other. I'm familiar with some of the lower end TC and Lexicon stuff from PA use. Does anybody run a similar setup or have suggestions for products to look for?

You might want to check out the Kurzweil Rumour. The verbs are in between Lexicon & TC Elec but closer to Lexicon, which is a good thing, imo. Algorithms are straight from their KSP8. Plus it has top notch a/d/a conversion.

Think about tc m-one xl. You have the possibility of using the 2 engines for dual mono setup.
I just got it a few days ago - good first impression on building and sound quality.

I just got a Lexicon MX300 for Delay & Verb and it will run dual mono routing. But, I would go one more step and get the MX400 as it has better control than the 300. One thing on the Lexicon MX units, only use them if running parallel, they don't function well in series.

Lexicon MPX-1, pretty inexpensive and really decent sounding. Programing takes a little getting used to but its got great reverb and delay.

Good luck

+1 Great sounding, very clean and quiet. The UI is not easy to use for programing.

Look in pro studios and what do you see? Nothing much new in the delay/reverb/effects line: they're still using Lexicon PCM40/60/80 series, Eventide H3000s of one sort or another and TCs high end stuff. Why is this significant? Because a used H3000 isn't going to cost you a lot more than a new mid-range effects processor. Sure, it's only 16 bit/44 kHz, but it has top quality analog processing and great programming. If the $500 for an H3000 is too rich, I'd second the Lexicon MPX-1. Definitely on the high side of prosumer, almost pro gear...

Can you insert another unit in btw the front & rear inputs of the MX400. I like to put my looper after the delay & before the reverb

there is a 200 dollar lexicon my neighbor has (mpx200?) that is outstanding. . .

dual engine

dbx compression

can use via usb with your computer to save processing power in said computer

excellent verb and delay.

a steal if you ask me.

i have an early, wall-wort lexicon. not bad at all. . . but not nearly as versatile
