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.

  • High quality signal processing algorithms,
  • Up to 9600 ms of delay time depending on internal sampling frequency,
  • Continuous control of delay time,
  • Tight synchronization to the host tempo and its changes,
  • Tape saturation simulation based on the algorithm used in the line of our mastering processors,
  • Low pass filter for high frequency absorption modeling,
  • Modulation section with three different modulation signal sources (sinus, square, envelope detector) mixed in any proportions,
  • Phrase sampler capability,
  • Parameter filtration and on-the-fly cross-fades for smooth and click-free operation,
  • Support for sampling rates of up to 192kHz,
  • MIDI and VST automation,
  • Logic Control support.
  • Library of presets

The PCM 42 became a classic because it sounded good - not transparent, and certainly not clinical, but with a nice characteristic for delay and echo. I'm happy to say that PSP 42 holds its own, exploiting PSP's expertise in emulating tape saturation to achieve a sound that is pleasing and warm.

In fact, I resurrected my old PCM 42 and tried it right up against the PSP version. I have to say that for some settings, I actually preferred the sound of PSP 42.
