# Inexpensive Effects Processor ???

I am on the lookout for an inexpensive effects processor. Something that will give me the basic effects with good sound quality, and preferably two channels that can be separated for independent operation (unless it's dirt cheap in which case a single channel would be fine)

Thanks. John

Okay, I found a Lexicon mx110 about ten days ago from a local seller (high school), fired it up in time for tech, and it worked pretty well. Unfortunately after the first weekend our director decided the live miked voice wasn't working out, so we're going to pre-recorded and edited sound tracks.

I really like the Lexicon though -- nice effects. I see what you mean about the channels being linked though ... so my choice for upgrade will be the MX200, which has completely separate channel control (or daisy-chained), and also has a USB to allow programming via computer.

Thanks for the heads up Sharon ... the TC also looks like a nice unit. However it looks like it doesn't have pitch bend, which I find pretty useful to make "munchkin" or "god" voices.

In looking at the mx200 again, it looks like neither unit will actually allow you to operate two completely independent effects ... there are restrictions. For example, if I want to use pitch bend on two different actors to raise or lower their voices to different levels, I am going to have to use two separate effects processors?

Simply put, yes. With all of the processors in your price range that do pitch bend, it's gonna be two processors.

Thanks for the TC links, Sharyn. I may look in to getting one of those. They're going for 125 buy it now on ebay right now, and I need a good dual FX processor.
