Hello,

I tried out a Lexicon MX200 last year just to see how it would sound in my multi-channel system, then if I liked what I heard I would purchase either one more, or the 4 channel MX400. All I can say is I was so disappointed with the results after fiddling with it for a couple days that I boxed it up and brought it back for a refund, it was not good. Maybe they work great for guitars, but in my opinion they don't work for organs. If you're looking for decent sounding reverb I'd look at convolution reverb using a program such as Reaper which I've also done in the past. Now days, I just purchase wet sets where I like the acoustic because although better than a Lexicon, I wasn't all that impressed with the Reaper idea either.

I hear though there is a new convolution reverb called 7th Heaven which is supposed to be very good per a number of Hauptwerk users.

Hi, Thanks for your reply, it's more or less as I Ixpected. I have a Hereford 67 stop, but very disappointed with the reverb, I can't believe that such a large building is as dry as this.

I also have Goerlitz and that sounds fantastic, it's just that I prefer the English organ sound.

Thanks for your help. Ken

Hi Ken, no problem, glad I could give you the report on the Lexicons and possibly save you some frustration. I've only loaded the Hereford demo when I was checking it out some time back, but I felt the acoustic part of the set was quite good. Do you listen through headphones or thru a multi-channel speaker set up?

Hi Marc,
I play the Hereford through 4 speakers,my organ is a 4 manual Magnus. Years ago I had a 3 manual Viscount with quadroverb reverb. It was brilliant,I did actually try the Lexicon but it was Rubbish ,I was hoping it was something I had done wrong but after 3 weeks of experiments I gave up and like you,returned Ir as in compatable..

RE: Reverberation Lexicon

I was wondering if you were to listen through headphones if it would still sound dry to you. If not it could reveal an issue somewhere.

Hi Marc, Good point but I don't have any socket to connect headphones. Other samples have been ok. I just feel that the lack of reverb is
due to the original recording..

I would love to have an adjustment but Haupwerk don't seem interested in making this possible.

I suppose that the Salisbury would give the effect I'm after but an expensive trial.


Still,who knows? Father Christmas???

If you're interested, I ordered the Armley Schulze late last week and got it up and running on Saturday. WOW! What a set! Totally impressed with the sound quality and what you can do with this set. Highly recommend it, it's a bargain for what you get!

Hi Marc,

Sounds good, I'll go to the organ demo and have a listen. Thanks. Ken
