This Yamaha SPX90 II includes an attached Power Cable.
Condition: This unit is in good condition, works great, and has some wear from rack including some sticker residue on the front.
What We Like: This is THE classic studio processor. This is the upgraded version of the SPX90, with more features and patches added in. You can still find the SPX90/SPX90II in EVERY studio, because they have that classic reverb, delay sound, and they have tons of effects built in.
The SPX90II is a superb FX processor that's been used on thousands of albums. It's a classic, and lot of FX will be instantly recognizable. It's a high quality, effective FX box that's very flexible.
The SPX90II recreates the reverberation produced in a variety of environments, adding natural, live fullness to your sound.
Early reflection programs simulate the first few reflections that occur just after a sound is produced - before the reflections become dense enough to be called reverberation - adding punch and presence to vocals and instruments.
Delay effects offer independently variable left and right channel delays adding special interest to a common effect and permitting the creation of "doubled" sound.
Similar to delay, Echo brings added dimension and force to both instrumental and vocal music, producing limitless signal variations. Independent programming of left and right channel feedback levels makes it possible to create extremely complex echo effects.
Modulation effects are produced by periodically varying the amplitude, frequency, or delay time of an input signal. Popular effects like Stereo Flange, Chorus, Stereo Phasing, Tremolo, and Symphonic are all available and can dramatically thicken the sound of any instrument.
This program automatically pans the second image between left and right in the stereo sound field. Pan direction, speed, and depth can be programmed for instant recall.
The Vibrato effect produces minute pitch variations that are adjustable over a wide range. Vibrato can give your keyboard, guitar, or wind instrument a distinctively "vocal" quality.
Reverb & Gate
This program combines the SPX90II's superlative reverb sound with a programmable "gate". The gate, with programmable trigger level, hold and release times, can be used to shape the envelope of the reverb sound, creating some unique and unusual reverb contours that can really enrich your effect "vocabulary".
Pitch Change programs alter the pitch of an input signal in semitone increments over a two-octave range (plus or minus one octave). Fine adjustment in one-cent increments is also possible (one cent = 1/100 of a semitone) Pitch change permits detuning an instrument to create subtle chorus-like effects and to create complete ensembles with a single instrument. This feature can be remotely controlled by a MIDI keyboard or sequencer.
These are sampling programs which permit recording a sound segment in the memory. The entire sound or specific portion of it may then be played back as required. The FREEZE B program even permits changing the pitch of the sampled sound from a MIDI keyboard, so you can actually play the sample as if it were a keyboard voice. Playback can be triggered from the front panel, via a footswitch, or input signal.
Compression limits the dynamic range of an input signal, boosting soft signals and reducing high signals to keep them within the specified range. This feature provides an effective way to smooth out the dynamics of a bass guitar, increase the sustain of a guitar, or tame a "jumpy" vocal performance.
This program uses a gate circuit to pass or shut off a short segment of a longer input signal, or it can be used to pass only signals that exceed a specific level. Reverse gate effects can be achieved in which the gain increases gradually after the gate is triggered. In addition to signal-level triggering, it is also possible to trigger the gate via a footswitch connected to the front-panel MEMORY/TRIGGER jack.
This program enables you to precisely adjust the frequency response of any signal in four distinct bands: a variable low-pass filter; middle band peaking EQ with frequency, gain and Q control; high band peaking EQ with frequency, gain and Q control; and a variable high-pass filter. This equalizer offers exacting control that lets you achieve virtually any response you need.
