The Room Outside Of Time 2

video upload by John L Rice

"A quick one I should have spent more time on, and also should NOT have spent ANY time on, but I wanted to record a bit of it for the memories! 😅

Unlike a lot of my recent complex sequencer experiments this one only uses 5 steps of a single row of one Moon 569 sequencer! The CV out is patched into a Synth Tech E102 Quad Temporal Shifter (shift register) and the 4 outputs go to 4 voices, each consisting of a MOTM-300 VCO, saw out to a Happy Nerding FM AID, to a Moon 517 VCF and finally to a Oakley Dual VCA. VCF and VCA modulation was from a Club Of The Knobs C911P poly EG and the FM AIDs and VCFs got additional modulation from a Krisp1 OCTO LFO. Effects are from the usual Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals and Lexicon MX400 rack. I used the Roland A-88 keyboard to transpose the sequence via a MOTM-650 module and the bassy-lead was played on an Expressive E Osmose keyboard."

Rare Lexicon Prime Time 93 Digital Delay

via this auction

Note this is a supporting member listing. Usually it's synths only on the site. If you'd like to submit your listing. If you'd like to submit your listings for posts, become a supporting member.

You might notice this delay has a VCO. More on that further below. "Rare Lexicon Prime Time 93 digital delay with maxed out memory, in fully functioning and perfect working condition. The front panel is immaculate. It is likely one of the cleanest Lexicon 93's in the world."

This one was sent to: "Dane Beamish of Beamish Electronics for repair, who is well known in the industry as the main tech who works on Lexicon gear. He wasn't cheap, but he went over it in great detail, and replaced all of the tantalum and electrolytic caps, a new timing crystal, several op-amps, and installed 24 new RAM chips. He also fully calibrated it. He recommended paying additional for the more expensive higher quality Texas Instrument RAM chips since (in his experience) they rarely go bad, so I decided to go with his recommendation, despite the much higher cost. He told me it was the cleanest Lexicon Prime Time 93 he had ever seen. He believes it may have left the factory this way, and sat on a shelf as a test unit, or may have left the the factory by other means. You can read his write up in the attached invoice."

Regarding the VCO, via

"Lastly, there seems to be some confusion online about the Prime Time 93’s VCO. I heard it referred to as an LFO in one video and that didn’t sound right to me. I contacted Gary Hall, creator of the Lexicon PCM42 digital delay, who worked for Lexicon at the time the Prime Time 93 was in production. Here’s what Gary had to say:

'Actually, the Prime Time has both an LFO and a VCO. Internally, the digital circuits are all run by a clock at ultrasonic rates. In the fixed delay mode, the clock is a crystal oscillator. When you click the knob to ‘UnCal’, the clock is taken over by a Voltage-Controlled Oscillator running at similar high speed which you can change with the manual sweep or with the LFO. The clock oscillator itself is a true VCO, however it’s not in audible range (I don’t have numbers in front of me, but it’s dog-whistle territory). It’s also linear-response only. No effort was made to have it conform to synth specs. So, VCO modulated by LFO and/or manual offset.'"

Lexicon 224XL Digital Reverberator for Parts (ex-LucasFilm) SN 224-3785

via this auction

Lucas Arts IN 0107400

"ex-LucasFilm Lexicon 224XL rackmount unit, w/power supply and six original cards, as a parts unit. Or you can buy a clone LARC and SBC board, fabricate a front panel for it, and you'll be off and running as the owner of one of the best digital reverbs ever made.

The 224XL is a classic vintage reverb released in 1984, and used on hundreds of hits back in the day, and in many LucasFilm movies, since this one was owned by LucasFilm (Star Wars / Indiana Jones / Labyrinth, etc.) as shown by the sticker on the back panel. It still sounds incredible in the modern studio. The 224XL fits so well in the mix, perfect for drums, vocals, anything you throw at it.

FUNCTIONALITY: Unit not been tested for functionality. All the boards appear to be populated as shown in the photos. I bought this as a spare parts unit some time ago but never got around to using it (I don't own a fully functioning 224XL to test these cards in).

It is missing: 1) front panel (can be fabricated and silk-screened) 2) LARC remote and cable (a clone is available and originals show up from time to time) 3) SBC board (clones are available online). 4) May need a new power switch and power LED installed. The OPT slot was for an optional NVS memory board, a clone of which is also available online.

Lexicon 224XL case, DMEM, T&C, ARU, FPC, AIN, & AOUT cards (as shown), integrated power supply (standard US Voltage)."
