Product Description


Building on the success of the PCM96, the new PCM96 Surround offers more presets, more configuration options, and more inputs and outputs. The PCM96 Surround gives you industry standard reverbs and effects, with tremendous flexibility.

The PCM96 Surround is availble with either 6 XLR Stereo AES inputs and outputs, or 2 DB25 6-channel analog I/O and 1 DB25 6-channel digital I/O. Both versions also feature MIDI, Wordclock, and Ethernet.

PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT - FireWire streaming from the PCM96 and PCM96 Surround is only compatible with Mac OS X 10.4.11 - 10.6.8. Newer operating system versions beyond OS X 10.6.8 will not be supported. The FireWire port will be removed from future units.

To offset this feature change, Lexicon is providing a complimentary copy of the PCM Total Bundle of Reverb and Effects Plug-ins (a $999 value) to PCM96 and PCM96 Surround purchasers.

To redeem your PCM Total Bundle, register your PCM96 or PCM96 Surround and follow the instructions.
