Topic: Best use of Lexicon MPX-550?

    Best use of Lexicon MPX-550?

    I picked up a lexicon 550 today, on the hope that I can get a better sound out of it for reverb, and possibly even a better understanding of reverb as a whole.

    My question is - how do you guys recommend I best use it for orchestral work? For say, violins, I can go directly from giga to the 550, control wet/dry there, and record on a mac using logic.

    Or, I could use it as a send effect off my behringer board, and have basically 4 tracks in logic for one instrument (2 pairs of stereo tracks- one dry, one wet) and mix from there.

    Is that too much hassle though? Is the first idea going to give pretty much the same results?

    Thanks Sharmy for the late-night response! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I guess my more specific question is:

    Should I record the tracks in Logic as audio files, and THEN send them out to the 550, and record the returning reverb, thereby having a total of 4 tracks in Logic per instrument(2 stereo tracks, one set for the recorded instrument, and one set for the returned reverb). This seems like a lot of tracks, for tweaking which might not be necessary.


    Should I skip initially recording the tracks in Logic, route to the 550 from GS (of course, just one instrument at a time), and then record the final stereo track (only one stereo track) in Logic. The wet/dry/other settings would be handled in the 550.
