The Lexicon PCM 91 is a digital reverb unit. It is rack mountable and it will take up a single rack space unit. It is a stereo unit and it has both 1/4 inch and XLR inputs and outputs. It has a memory card slot for those who have older units or want to store their pre set sounds on the memory card to swap them between different Lexicon units. I have only used the PCM 91 in the studio, but it would also work well within a rack based guitar rig.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration of the Lexicon PCM 91 digital reverb unit is basic for a unit like this, but does like a bit of figuring out if you are not familiar with effects like this. It is easy to get and control the reverb pre sets and parameters that this has to offer, and also won't take to long until you are making and storing your own. The manual for this is pretty complete, and is definitely good to have around while you are trying to learn how to use the PCM 91.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the PCM 91 is top notch. The reverb effects are full sounding and the unit is overall versatile in terms of the different types of reverbs you can produce with this. I have used the PCM 91 on a myriad of different instruments, including electric guitar, lap steel guitar, vocals, and snare drum. I won't ever record with this on my signal, but while mixing it can come in quite handy.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Lexicon PCM 91 for about five years, and while it is a great sounding reverb unit, I find myself using plug-ins more and more for reverb. The reason for this is because it is much easier to control and save, and I can get some sounds that are comparable o this unit at a fraction of the cost. While the reverbs on this will probably be better than that of most plug-ins, sometimes the convenience of plug-ins can outweigh a slight difference in sound quality. This being said, if you are looking for a rack mountable reverb unit, you definitely can't go wrong with this, but the big price tag will make a lot of people shy away because they can get reverb within their digital audio workstations. Overall, if you want a digital reverb unit like this, this is worth a try.
