    Hi all, I'd like to upgrade from my Lexicon MPX-100. It has a nice collection of effects in it, but I'm primarily interested in reverb and delay (for general purpose home studio use). All that other stuff (chorus, flanging, etc) is unnecessary. I'd like a reasonably high end unit, under a grand if possible. What should I be looking at? First, what's a good "commercial" unit, comparable to the MPX-100 but maybe a step up, and then what's a good "professional" unit? Thanks!
     
  2. Commercial unit= Yamaha XPS 90

    The prosumer, I would suggest the Lexicon PCM 60, nothing but verb and chorus dedicated.

    In my studio, we have the Lexicon 60, 70, 80 and 90 which covers any effect you desire!

    The Eventide H3000E is pretty awesome too.

    Thanks Treena! About the Eventide, I've been noticing the various different "versions" (D/SE, etc). Are the newer ones worth the extra cost? Or is it all a bunch of new presets (like, here's a collection of Steve Vai's favorite sounds)?
     
  4. Same patches as before just added a bunch (collection of such and such) as you stated.
