Lexicon® PCM92 Software Upgrade Provides Users Greater Ease Of Use With Foot Switch and Foot Controller
April 28, 2010
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Lexicon®, a Harman International (NYSE-HAR) company today announced the latest software upgrade for its PCM92, which allows users to configure and use optional foot switch and foot controller capabilities through existing connections on the back of the unit. Now musicians have complete real-time control over changing presets as well as adjusting various parameters during their live performances.
A simple ¼” TRS connection between the PCM92 and a foot controller and foot switch makes it easy for a musician to change presets and adjust parameters during a performance. Users can create a sequence of presets, called preset chains, which can be easily cycled through using a 2-button momentary foot switch or make real-time parameter adjustments with a variable position foot controller. The software update includes multiple foot pedal-enabled options including: preset chain configuration, foot pedal calibration, foot switch setup and the ability to restore factory defaults
“Lexicon is proud to be offering these very exciting features for our live performance customers,” said Paul Faby, Business Segment Director of Lexicon. “The PCM92 will provide these live performances the ultimate sound, as if they were recorded in the studio.”
Delivering 28 mono and stereo reverbs, delays, and modulation effects, flexible routing configurations, and a comprehensive library of more than 1,200 factory presets, the PCM92, with the latest software update, continues to be the most advanced audio processor in its class.
“Lexicon is proud to continue reaching the next level of musical performance and will continue to support all of our dedicated musicians through precise, easy-to-use equipment,“ continued Faby.
