Links

With the Lexicon MX200 you can use two channels when you operate independently. These illustrations are based on using both channels to support two PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model Is.

Connections at the Lexicon MX200

If using one PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I just use shown connections shown in the top half of the picture. If using two PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model Is then use bottom half as well.

Controlling the Wet/Dry Mix

Using the terminology from page 7 of the Lexicon MX200 Users Manual you are making a Serial connection. This mean that you will control the wet/dry mix using the mix controls (11 and 12) on the front panel. The Lexicon manual suggests that you may want to use a parallel connection for reverb, (and you can do this with the PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I you will have to use Channel 3 or 4 for the return signal). There is advantage to this as you will still have to control the amount of effect (reverb) being sent to the {{PS1} from the effects unit. It is probably simpler to use the serial method and the mix controls on the Lexicon unit to manage how much reverb is applied to the signal.

Setting Mix Controls

From page 8 in the Lexicon MX200 Users Manual. Note - manual uses Electric Guitar as example but should be applicable to to PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I.

A common problem is with the way some Insert Cables are labelled. This is how the connections are run at the Insert Point of the PS1 Powerstand.
