The name Lexicon is synonymous with digital reverberation. Their effects devices draw on decades of experience gained making legendary devices like the 224, 480L and 960L and the later PCM70 & PCM92. This experience enabled Lexicon to develop their own proprietary reverberation chip, the Lexichip, which was subsequently used in most of their products
The Alex is a prime example of the economies of scale Lexicon managed to achieve – a low-cost Lexicon effects unit in a neat 1U package
The Alex is designed to be quick & easy to use with 16 presets and 16 user memories.  The front panel is super-simple with a signal LED, Input / Mix / Output controls, (Mix varies the blend of effect and dry signal), Store / Clear button, Parameter button (to select the parameter to edit), a Value knob (to edit that parameter), digital display and a Register / Preset knob to select a program
Each preset has three parameters that can be edited, and modified programs can be saved into user memories.  If you want more in-depth editing than the Alex can provide, take a look at the other Lexicons & effects I have for sale
