Lexicon today announced that a new firmware update is now available for its PCM92 and PCM96 Stereo Reverb/Effects Processors and its PCM96 Surround Parallel Stereo and Surround Reverb/Effects Processor. The update is applicable to all three models, and can be downloaded free of charge on the Lexicon Pro website, www.lexiconpro.com.
The update will increase network discovery speeds for the PCM92, PCM96 and PCM96 Surround, enabling faster setup and configuration. The update also improves FireWire streaming stability.
With the update installed, users can now change driver buffer settings without having to reboot their unit â€“ a significant time-saver, especially in live sound situations.
The update also provides new, expanded MIDI capabilities. Now, users are able to assign unique MIDI channels to individual Lexicon PCM Series processors in an installation, or they can choose to not assign channels for MIDI network optimization. This enables up to 16 units to
be used on a MIDI interface.
The update downloads for the PCM92, PCM96 and PCM96 Surround are currently available at www.lexiconpro.com. In addition to the download links for each product, an Update Guide and Helpful Hints documents are available that provide setup assistance along with useful tips and advice for getting the most out of the capabilities provided by the update.
The Lexicon PMC92, PCM96 and PCM96 Surround reverb/effects processors are designed to provide the ultimate in performance and flexibility. They offer industry-leading features including hundreds of factory presets that deliver classic Lexicon audio quality, extensive digital and analog connection options, and integration with the Harman HiQnetâ„¢ System Architectâ„¢ control protocol.
Harman HiQnetâ„¢ is the world's first connectivity and control protocol that integrates all product categories in the signal chain for professional audio systems of all types, size, and applications. Harman HiQnet no longer requires the user to manage multiple disparate operating systems or be responsible for programming individual signal processors, speaker controllers, wireless microphone systems, and mixing consoles. HiQnet was developed by engineers from across Harmanâ€™s Professional Division and is coordinated by the System Development and Integration Group (SDIG), a team of dedicated systems specialists based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
