The Lexicon Approved Stereo Delay Plug-in
Lexicon PSP 42 is a high-quality digital stereo delay and phrase sampler plug-in (VST and RTAS, AAX for Windows; VST and RTAS, AAX for Mac OS classic and AudioUnit, VST, RTAS for Mac OSX Universal Binary) based on the legendary Lexicon PCM 42 processor famous for its distinctive sound and unique concept. Lexicon PSP 42 has been carefully designed to accurately reproduce the flexibility and warmth of this renowned classic. This has been accomplished by incorporating precise tape saturation algorithm and a delay line operating with variable sampling rate which simulates physical properties of vintage tape machine delays. The plug-in has been designed with consideration to preserve maximum signal quality at every processing stage.
The Lexicon PSP 42 is capable of generating wide variety of delay-based effects ranging from tempo-locked feedback delay with high frequency absorption and tape saturation to flanging and phasing effects. A flexible modulation section for continuous delay time and pitch control allows the user to add subtle animation or swing to the processed signal as well as to create unpredictable, alien sounds when pushed to its limits. The freely adjustable delay line sampling frequency makes Lexicon PSP 42 a good tool for creating low-fi effects that sound smooth thanks to the superior characteristics of employed interpolation algorithm. Close attention has been paid to make the unit operate without audible clicks or pops.
PSP is the sole developer and manufacturer of the Lexicon PSP 42. Functionality and sound of the Lexicon PSP 42 have been approved by Lexicon. PSP is responsible for all customer support.
The Lexicon PSP 42 is primarily intended for processing individual tracks within a mix. It can be productively used to add superior sounding delay-based effects to solo instruments and vocals as well as to simulate vintage delay with tape saturation, high frequency absorption and variable tape speed. Tempo locking and handy modulation section make Lexicon PSP 42 an essential tool for experimenting with drum loops and other rhythmic patterns. Variable delay line sampling rate allows to generate good sounding low-fi effects as well as out-of-this-world sounds. Short delay times, pitch modulation and phase inverters reveal Lexicon PSP 42 potentials as a source of vibrant modulation effects such as flanger and doubler. Last but not least Lexicon PSP 42 is a simple ring reverb for a denser output.
