    Hi everyone,

    I wondered if any of you use external digital reverb unit ( let's say a Lexicon lxp-15 because that's what I've been looking at) with your dp24/32. Do you see an improvement in quality and workflow?

    Many thanks,

    Daniel

    You get whatever improvements or additions the outboard gear provides.

    a dedicated effects unit should give you more parameters to fiddle with thus more options

    Haha, yes. That's my fault for not being specific enough. I guess I was asking whether a box like the lpx-15 or maybe even cheaper the TC electronics M100 is a significant improvement enough to justify extra cost. But nevermind, you can file this into silly questions!

    These days, even the cheap multi-effects units have some pretty good sounds.
