There is something uniquely powerful about the sound of a vintage rotary speaker system. The organic chorusing as the treble horn and bass rotor start speeding up. The grit of the internal tube-driven amplifier, creating additional harmonics that spin around the room. Plug into Lex, close your eyes, and be transported by this classic sound, recreated with astonishing realism and depth for your pedalboard.
Lex provides you with a complete, accurately reproduced rotary speaker system: the low-frequency bass rotor, the rotating treble horn, the tube-driven amplifier, finely tuned microphone placement, and all the complex sonic interactions between these elements. Powerful, intuitive controls mean you can quickly dial in just the customized sound you desire.
Our second generation Lex gives you the same rich rotary sounds of our original and adds significant new features, incorporating technological advancements, hardware improvements and design enhancements to give you additional flexibility, power, and ease of use on stage and in the studio.
Our new generation of Lex features full MIDI implementation, allowing you to control just about every switch, knob, and setting remotely by sending MIDI commands from your controller or DAW via Lex’s EXP/MIDI jack or USB-C connection.
Rotary speed can be synchronized via MIDI Clock Sync, and the sync setting can be saved for each preset. 300 MIDI preset locations are available for loading and saving your favorite settings.
Remotely bypass or engage the pedal, sync rotary speed changes along with your tracks, automate knob adjustments, recall unique presets for each song on your setlist — the possibilities with MIDI are limitless.
Uncompromised dynamics and feel. Exceptional touch sensitivity and responsiveness. Lex feels just as good as it sounds, thanks to a high impedance ultra-low noise discrete Class A JFET preamp input.
Lex lets you choose electromechanical relay switched true bypass for a 100% untouched, unprocessed signal when the pedal is bypassed (this is the default setting), or you can opt for our premium quality buffered bypass that conditions your signal to preserve its integrity by preventing the high end roll-off that can happen due to longer cable runs.
No need to make compromises when it comes to signal routing or pedal placement — Lex features full stereo in/out capabilities.
A single TRS input jack allows Lex to keep its compact form factor while giving you the option to use a stereo input signal. A dedicated rear panel Input switch allows you to easily set Lex for operation with a stereo (TRS) or mono (standard TS) input source. Low impedance dual TS output jacks let you use Lex as a stereo effect.
Pedals aren’t just for guitarists. Lex’s adjustable input signal level makes it a versatile tool for endless applications from the studio to the stage.
By setting Lex to line level input mode, you get 10dB of added headroom, allowing you to use Lex with bass guitars with active pickups, synthesizers, keyboards, effects loops, and more.
Significant developments in mobile phones and computers have led to an evolution in technology that now allows our pedals to perform more simultaneous processes with less power draw than ever before.
That means more processing power for every sonic nuance with less power consumption on your pedal board.
