jan 1, 1978 - Lexicon 244
The lexicon 244 was released in 1978. The Lexicon 224 is an early digital reverb, well known for its long, almost astral and spacey delays. The reverb was conceived by Dr. David Griesinger, a musician/classical recording engineer and scientist, started working on a digital alternative to reverb. Seeing EMT's 250 motivated him to merge a microcomputer with his reverb design. The 224-reverberation system had a console controller with rack-space for up to 4 things, two inputs, four outputs and interchangeable programs to simulate chambers, plates and rooms.
