Ah the joys of looking at old threads!

Have stumbled on a PCM91 and was vaguely wondering if it was worth the dosh.

Good this thread existed - I'll stick with what I have. :)

I was going to get a 91 a few months back, and also decided against it.
The older Lexicons are superb, but terribly unreliable, I had a 224 up until about a year ago, what a nightmare, but it sounded so gorgeous, I nearly cried the day it went, but it was always breaking down. Now I've got Valhalla Vintgae, and Room, plus a Big Sky, and a Midiverb 11! Between that lot I don't need anything else.
If you want a really amazing, totally orgasmic software reverb get EpicVerb, it'll blow you away, and.........it's free!
I'm on Mac now, so can't use it, as it's PC only.

Haha yes, I’ve been using Bootsie VOS stuff forever. I think epicVerb was my first recommendation on this forum, and it’s still in basically almost my mixes.

Too bad that life (and photography) has got in the way and Herbert shifted his curiosity elsewhere.

I had a PCM91 and sold it once Logic had convolution reverb built in. I spent some time sampling the 91 with impulse tones but have never really used them, I must check where they are, presumably still in the convolution reverb library.
The 91 was kind of semi-pro and semi-affordable, one of the few bits of kit I didn’t lose much money on.
Now I use UAD’s EMT 150 and AMS RMX 16 and the Eventide H3000 plugin plus Komplete reverbs, I like Replika for really long lush reverbs e.g. Soft Clouds.

The reverbs in Reaktor are also very good.

No love for the PCM60 on this thread?

Real workhorse. Love mine.

I don't think you can say the word "bad" and "lexicon reverb" in the same sentence. They are all usable. We live in a time of extreme reverb riches.

Agreed! I even found occasional use for the Alex, but have owned the MPX1, sold it and the LXP1, still love it when I’m not in the box. There are some workhorse presets and some really wacky ear candy presets that I’ve never heard anywhere else. Inspirational.
