    Hi guys! What are your impressions about the Lexiverb TDM?
    I will start using it tomorrow. Is it better than an MPX1, similar to PCM 81?

    thanks

    Alecio, It seems you are one of the few on this board using Pro Tools (other than 001) and TDM plugs. I feel lonely for you man every time you post something like this. Wish I had a response for you but I live in VST land. Convolution reverb impulses seem to be the wave of the future. Was this plug developed by Lexicon?

    Thanks for your support John! People here are not big fans of ALSIHAD!lol

    Yess, Lexiverb is by Lexicon.

    Alecio,

    If you haven't opened the wrapper on the Lexiverb yet, Don't! You may still be able to return it.

    I knew two people who bought the program and hated it. I didn't get to play with a copy, but I heard a few tracks that used it, and I don't see how anyone would like it. I've also heard from Digidesign reps that the Lexiverb plugin is a half-hearted attempt. Lexicon didn't want to jepordize their hardware sales with a software version, so they intentionally limited the quality of this particular program.

    ... but if you DID start using it already, it's a great program! :) I hope you like it.

    I am amazed!
    If you did not like it, what are your comments about Waves reverb and Digi verb?
    lol

    I haven't actually worked with LEXIVERB, but I've heared the results of my friends work, and I was quite amazed... It's definitely the best sounding softverb I've heared so far (light years away from Waves)... Haven't been able to hear the Altiverb so far... looking forward to hearing it soon....

    Seems Digi reverb competes with Altiverb for Top 1 concerning PT HD plattform. I have been evaluating Lexiverb, TC Megareverb, Reverb One and Tru Verb.
    I have never used the PCM 81 but Lexiverb it is much clenaer than the MPX1 and the PCM70. However, I lack some compression, it is hard to describe. The hardware box has soemthing the plugins still miss. MAybe stereo image due to TDM mix?
     
  10. Plug-ins vs. hardware, hardware usually wins...
    But! I had a job recently that the BF 1176 did the job better than my Valley People 2-610, so it's nice to have choices. Doc

    the lexicon reverb is in my opinion an embarrasment.
    it truly is not as good as the other verbs out there
    like altiverb or reverb one. having said that, the very
    talented mixer who works with trevor horn who posts
    on the duc alot says that he loves it. i guess
    everybody has an opinion. as for me though- i like
    d-verb in a more contemporary mix because it kinda
    sounds like a rev 5 or rev 7 - it kind of has the
    early reflections and scrape and grit that i find exciting
    in a track. lexverb also has nothing but chamber and
    i think plate or room - it really is a joke. i was mixing a classical orch a few weeks ago and tried to match
    a lexverb tdm to a lex hardware pcm 91. i couldn't
    match it to it - then i tried reverb one and it kicked
    bot lexicon asses. waves stuff reverb wise is a joke
    too. i feel sorry for anyone who has invested in
    a waves 360 bundle for 5.1. it is really bad - even the
    l2 for 5.1 is a joke. lose the lex verb IMHO.
    also , my altiverb is an h-tdm - it has alowed me to
    replace my dsp hungry alternatives and it on took
    up a bit of stream management on an HD. i replaced
    my dsp theif the DPP-1 with some pitchshift stuff in
    the altiverb - it has help me free up at least 2 or 3
    dsp chips. i am hoping that sony does a verb for PT.
    cheers

    Many thanks Stealth. BTW.. can you commet who is the talented mixer?

    In fact I miss something, I dunno if it is stereo image or compression, I dunno. It is cleaner/much more transparent than my SPX900´s from the 02R01Vs and the MPX1 box..
