Lexicon PCM80 Effects Processor (Used)
The PCM 80 contains a built-in library of 200 preset programs that provide a comprehensive array of effects ranging from beautiful and lush to completely wild. The presets are organized into 4 Banks of 50, and functionally grouped for a wide range of applications.
Multi Effects Modulation Effects Special Effects
& Delay Effects
Resonant Chord Effects
Reverb Effects Processed Reverb
Effects Remix Effects
The PCM 80 uses 10 stereo algorithms to create different types of effects. Each algorithm includes an uncompromised stereo reverb effect, as well as several voices of additional stereo effects. There are two general classes of algorithm: 4-Voice and 6-Voice. The 4-Voice algorithms: Concert Hall, Plate, Chamber, Inverse and Infinite each combine a specific type of reverberation with a 4-voice, general purpose, stereo effect “toolbox”, as well as additional post-processing for the reverb. The 6-Voice algorithms: Glide>Hall, Chorus+Rvb, M-Band+Rvb, Res1>Plate and Res2>Plate each combine a specific type of reverberation with a specialized 6-voice stereo effect.
All PCM 80 algorithms include several parameters that make it possible to create dynamic spatialization effects for 2-channel or surround applications. Check out the Ambience Effects in Bank P1 and the Spatial Effects in Bank P2 for examples.
Front Panel Controls Include:
5-position indicator for analog and digital sig- nal levels and over- load conditions.
Adjusts analog input level.
Press to move up and down through a pro- gram, register, or pa- rameter matrix.
Enables selection of factory presets. Press repeatedly to cycle selection of 4 internal preset banks. Press and hold to display the name of the current bank.
In Program or Regis- ter mode, loads the selected program. In Edit mode, scrolls through any multi-field parameter.
Two rows of 20 alpha- numeric characters display effect names and ID numbers, and parameter names and values.
Enables selection of user memory. If a RAM card is loaded into the Memory Card slot, each press of this but- ton selects a new reg- ister bank. Press and hold to display the name of the current bank.
Initiates register store function.
In Edit mode, changes values of parameters chosen with SELECT. With Program Banks or Register Banks se- lected, behaves as a soft knob for patched parameters.
Enables parameter selection for editing of values.
Active in Program, Register, and Edit modes. Press to com- pare the active version of the current effect with the most recently stored version.
Scrolls through pre- sets, registers or pa- rameters. With Pro- gram Bank or Register Bank selected, scrolls through the 50 pro- grams in the selected bank. With Edit se- lected, scrolls only through the param- eters of the active row.
Enables selection of system and global pa- rameters.
Bypasses or mutes audio, depending on the setting of each program’s bypass pa- rameter.
Slot for optional preset ROM or register RAM cards. Press Eject button to remove card.
Press to display tempo rate and to initiate tempo functions. LED flashes in time with current tempo rate.
Sets tempo. Press twice in rhythm to es- tablish tempo rate. Press once to reset LFO.
Rear Panel Includes
S/PDIF format digital connectors conform to CP-340 Type II and IEC-958 consumer standards.
Receives MIDI infor- mation from other MIDI equipment such as master keyboard controllers, MIDI foot controllers, sequen- cers and synthesizers.
Passes any MIDI data received without change.
Transmits MIDI data to other equipment.
Output impedance is 125Ω, each side, bal- anced, and levels up to +18dBu maximum full scale. 1/4″ phone con- nectors and XLRs pro- vided.
1/4″ Tip/Ring/Sleeve phone jack for two in- dependent momen- tary footswitches
2-position (In/Out) switch for matching in- put gain to the source being used. In position adds 20dB of input gain (unbalanced) to the input stages. Out position provides 0dB of gain (balanced).
1/4″ Tip/Ring/Sleeve phone jack provided for footpedal with 10kΩ to 100Ω imped- ance.
Combined 3 pole XLR and 1/4″ jacks, elec- tronically balanced.
Input impedance is 50kΩ unbalanced, and 100kΩ balanced. Inputs accept input levels from -22dBu to +20dBu.
Standard 3-pin IEC power connector. 100- 240V, 50-60Hz auto- matic switching to cor- rect voltage range.
