"Clean and fully functional Lexicon Prime Time Dual Digital Delay Processor. I've owned this Prime Time for about 5 years and used it frequently without any problems. Includes original manual with a lot of interesting patch examples for all sorts of panning delays and stereo modulation delay effects. It's really worth having the manual and they're not always that easy to come by.

There are two separate digital delays that share a feedback architecture with isolated (and bussed) inputs and outputs, making this a very unique processing unit. The delays can be externally modulated by a passive expression pedal or 0-10v CV (including LFOs, function generators, etc).

Has balanced ins and outs, with switchable 0/+20db input gain.

The one thing I'd mention is that it's easy to overload the input if you don't send the proper signal level. There is no input overload indicator, and the input and signal chain will become over-modulated until the proper signal level is restored. This has happened to me several times. Lately, I typically use a direct box before the input to give me more control over my input signal (to avoid this clipping problem). Please reference the included Owners Manual for input signal level details.

The sliders are at about 97% clean. Occasionally at the top or bottom of a slide I'll hear a grain of static, but on the whole they're pretty clean."
