Lexicon PSP42 is a high-quality digital stereo delay and phrase sampler plug-in based on the legendary Lexicon PCM42 processor famous for its unique concept and distinctive sound.
In version 2, the original vision of Lexicon PSP42 has been enhanced both in sonic accuracy and feature flexibility. In addition to the lush tape saturation algorithm and emulation of the variable sampling rate delay line that made the sound of the original PCM42 so unique, version 2 now adds even more precise modeling of the hardware’s audio path, in a manner that allows the user to quickly decide on how much of the original character should be used. In addition to the Legacy processing mode of the previous version, Lexicon PSP42 now offers three alternative modes:
Clean: a pristine signal path with no emulations
Lims: engages the original hardware’s two opto limiters, one at the input and one just before the A/D – the first affecting Dry and Wet signals, and the second affecting Wet and Feedback signals
Full: engages emulation not only of the limiters but also of the original A/D and D/A converters in the hardware PCM 42, whose non-linear behavior added a unique sonic twist.
