The Lexicon PCM 80 is a classic multi-effects unit made famous for its digital reverb patches. The Lexicon PCM 80 brings you exciting new effects with extensive processing and control capabilities, and uncompromising sonic clarity.

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.

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.
