Great value reverbs and effects June 6, 2011
Reviewer: David Crowe  
This is a versatile unit for the price. The reverbs have great depth and that classic lexicon sound. You would pay more for many reverb plugins that arguably do not sound as good as this outboard unit, also you get some great chorus, delay and flange fx!
