Rapport qualité/prix : Excellent
The Lexicon MX200 is a multi effects processor that is capable of being hooked up to your computer via USB and used as a plug-in as well as a piece of outboard gear. It has MIDI ins and outs and two 1/4 inch inputs and outputs as well. It also has a S/PDIF input and output and is powered by the power supply that is sold separately. It is a rackable unit and it will take up a single rack space.


The use of the unit is easy to figure out as a piece of outboard gear, but can get somewhat confusing when using it as a plug-in. The parameters are pretty easy to follow and it is easy to scroll between all the different types of effects that this piece of gear has. I must note that the plug-in section of this unit can only be used as a VST plug-in and is not compatible with Pro Tools without the VST to RTAS adapter. However, if you have a compatible system you should be able to use all aspects of this unit pretty easily. The manual for this is pretty thorough and is useful when using this.


The effects on the Lexicon MX200 are usable and it is pretty versatile overall as it has a lot of different types of effects including reverbs, delays, chorus, flanger, vibrato, pitch shift, and tremolo, among a few other types of effects. Each effect has its own useful parameters that allow for a good deal of control over your sound. The overall sound quality is clean and the effects sound good for a unit this cheap. I have only used this effects processor with guitar, but it is suitable with any electronic instrument you want to plug into this. The hardware and plug-in sounds are similar in terms of sound quality.


I've been using the Lexicon MX200 for about three years and I have come to like it for its convenience of having so many different effects in one hardware unit and plug-in combined. The price of this is really inexpensive and makes it a great deal. Lexicon makes some great effect processors, and even though this is somewhat low end model, it is great for the price tag. If you are looking for a hardware multi-effects processor that can also be used as a plug-in, this is absolutely worth a look as it is a great deal.
