When we decided to create a studio-class pedal that faithfully recreates the classic, unmistakable sound of the most sought-after rotating speaker system, we prepared to study every nuance and finest detail. The Strymon sound design labs have been filled with those signature, swirling, three-dimensional sounds, as we painstakingly analyzed and recreated the physics and mechanics behind these systems.

Lex provides you with a complete, accurately reproduced rotary system: the low-frequency bass rotor, the rotating treble horn, the tube-driven amplifier, finely tuned microphone placement, and all the complex sonic interactions between these elements. Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed to authentically represent these details.

You get eight parameters to tweak, allowing extensive control over the tonality and mechanics of the rotating speaker system. You can manipulate each element, from rotor speed, horn level, acceleration time, microphone distance, tube drive and saturation, and volume level. Go from a maelstrom of dramatic, up-close, sweeping and swirling sounds, all the way to mellow, tranquil and calming undulations. All of this without a giant cabinet, microphone setup, and costly motor maintenance.

Sound Design

  • Hand crafted¬†rotary algorithms¬†faithfully deliver the signature, three-dimensional rotating speaker experience
  • Extensive control over rotating speaker mechanics and configuration
  • Four rotary adjustment and tone shaping knobs:
    Fast Rotor Speed, Preamp Drive, Mic Distance, Horn Level.
  • Four ‚Äúhidden‚ÄĚ knobs for extensive tone tweaking:
    Slow Rotor Speed, Cab Direction, Acceleration Time, +/- 6dB Boost/Cut.
  • Instantly alternate between a fast and slow rotor speed with the¬†Fast/Slow footswitch
  • Transparent cabinet technology allows for an optimal experience in front of guitar amplifiers and full range systems
Ins, Outs, Switches
  • Stereo output
  • High impedance mono input (internal jumper enables selectable TRS stereo input) Please¬†read this FAQ¬†for more info on the TRS input.
  • Expression pedal input with selectable control over any knob parameter
  • Connect our optional¬†MiniSwitch¬†to save a favorite preset
  • Fast/Slow and Bypass footswitches
  • Press and hold Fast/Slow footswitch for¬†Rotary Brake
  • Selectable¬†Bi-Amp mode¬†splits bass rotor and treble horn signals to separate outputs
Audio Quality
  • Ultra low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters
  • 110dB typical signal to noise
  • Premium analog front end and output section
  • Super high performance DSP in a compact form factor

Classic Sound, New Features.

Our second generation Lex gives you the same rich rotary sounds of our original and adds significant new features, incorporating technological advancements, hardware improvements and design enhancements to give you additional flexibility, power, and ease of use on stage and in the studio. 

MIDI

 

Full MIDI implementation means you can control just about every switch, knob, and setting remotely by sending MIDI commands from your controller or DAW via Lex’s EXP/MIDI jack or USB-C connection.

Rotor speed can be synchronized via MIDI Clock Sync, and the sync setting can be saved for each preset.

300 MIDI preset locations are available for loading and saving your favorite settings.

Hardware Improvements

 

A premium analog JFET input circuit ensures superb responsiveness to your playing, and you can select mono or stereo input with the flick of a rear panel switch.

All this, plus a new ARM DSP chip provides more processing power for every sonic nuance, with less energy consumption on your pedalboard.

User Interface

 

A more powerful and intuitive user interface gives you instant control over mic position and distance, dry level, acceleration speed, volume boost/cut, and easy customization of rotor speed.

Everything you need for the full rotary speaker experience is at your fingertips.
