Lexicon Gear

Chuck Ainlay uses:
  • PCM96 I've been using Lexicon processors ever since they introduced the 224, because they made my mixes sound rich and current. But you can throw them all away and any other boxes you might still be using because the PCM96 blows ‘em all away. It quickly became my go to reverb/effects processor for my studio. Now I have the same quality of reverb in the form of plug-ins with the PCM Native Reverb Bundle. The Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle may be the final link to achieving high quality mixes entirely in the box!
