    Looking for a Dual Effects Processor so...for LIVE purpose...Delay+Reverb.

    May i know is that any posibility to individual control the parameter of each Delay and Reverb? or it's only ONE parameter for the effect call Delay+Reverb?

    Thanks for help.

    Generally a dual effects processor has the ability to process two separate audio sources and feed them individually.

    A multi-effect processor will do for delay+Reverb.

    Most lexicon boxes are the best at reverb. Its been a long time since I have used them since I rely on my 13" MacBook with plugins for my effects these days.

    I believe the LXP-1 /LXP-5 was one of the best boxes years ago. There are still so many products out there, your just going to have to sit down at a store and try them till you find what your looking for.

    The Lexicon MX-200 can do two quality effects at once and you have a switch that lets you run them independently, in series, in parallel. Worth looking into, and really affordable. Nice USB capability too.

    MX-200 looks good.
    It's posible to tweak the parameter individual and then Mix together? Or Delay+Reverb just one of the Preset item?

    BTW, You use it in the Studio or Live?
    Thanks a lot.

    It has 2 independent processors, each can do any of the 32 effects - in either order if you're cascading them.

    You can edit 3 parameters for each type of effect

    Reverb [ pre-delay / decay / liveliness ]
    Delay [ time range / feedback / this varies on kind of delay ]
    DeEsser [ ratio / freq range / bandwidth Q ]

    and so on ....

    There's a separate Wet / Dry mix knob for each processor. (Download the info sheet online or manual from that Lexicon link if you want all the details)

    I use mine mostly live, but it's suitable for either. For recording I personally tend to mix in-the-box so I use reverb plug-ins more often than not.

    That is so cool. That makes me want to get the VST to RTAS plugin just for the Hardware reverb.

    I'm in the same boat with RTAS plug-ins and haven't dabbled in the VST emulation. It would free your computer resources up from doing those hefty reverb algorithms.
