(1) PCM91 Digital Reverberator
Lexicon's top of the range 480L and its predecessor the 224X have for over ten years been held in the highest esteem. No high-end studio looks complete without the familiar LARC Remote Control on top of the mixer. Studio owners feel obliged to equip with one or more of these vastly expensive reverb units, which is perhaps due to prestige as much as sound quality. With these points in mind, it was very interesting to evaluate the PCM90. This unit, although significantly cheaper than the 480L, is Lexicon's latest dedicated reverb unit aimed at the higher end of the market.
Yamaha popularised assignable controls with their DX7 synth. (Eh? I thought this was a reverb unit review! <= editor's/reader's voice.). Ever since the DX7 took off, equipment manufacturers have not felt obliged to put more than one or two knobs on anything, from synth modules to reverb units. This is understandable, from a cost point of view, and also from a practical and technological standpoint. More and more features are added to each new model, which remains the same size or smaller than its predecessor. However, there comes a point where the user says "Enough!" This has already happened in the synth market, where Roland now market synths with lots of knobs, switches and sliders alongside their more "modern" units. This is also starting to happen in areas of the outboard effects market, such as the profusion of valve-based effects and other retro effects such as the Mutronics Mutator. However, reverb and multi-effects units have yet to veer away from their path along the road to assignability hell, and the Lexicon's PCM90 is possibly the worst offender I have encountered! There are two knobs on the front panel, labelled Select and Adjust, and nudge buttons for going up and down in the menus. These are what you use to do almost everything on this unit, and there is an awful lot you can do.
