New creative worlds of n.rusical adventure can be discovered through the magic of Prirne Time II. Tl.re successor to the most popular digital delay ever, Prirne

Rugged and Reliable
Prime Time II has been engineered by one of the most
experienced desigre teams in digital processing, with the
requirements of mcden prot:essional tor.ring ald recordir.rg in mind. Cor.rsen ative con+ronelrt rating, lolv
power dissipation, ar.rd nearlv con:rectorless conshxc'
tion, all contribute to the hhererrt reliability of the
Model 95. Ten years of experience with thousands of
professional installations show in careft attention to all
aspects of mechanical and electronic design
- your insurance against disruptive field failures.

The ruriquely flexible input arld output shuchre o{ the
original Prime Time has been preserved in the Model
95. Tlvo mixable inputs {Main and Auxiliary) greatly fa'
cilitate patching the unit with other processing devices.
The Master Output provides any mix of direct, auilia4l
and the two delayed signals desired. The Lrput Mix Output allows effective patching into stereo output configu-
digital display and separate blend and recirculation controls, can be routed individually or combined in a virtually endless number of ways to create a vast array of
higtrly dimensional spatial enhancements, subtle shadings, and special effects such as bouncing echoes, etc.
Delay time for each output is adjusted by a continuous
rotary control. Resolution in milliseconds varies as a
{lnction of the delay range, ailowing extremely fine control {to 7s of a millisecondlj of short delays used for flang-
ing, double tracking, image localization, etc., and
appropriately broader settings at longer delay times.
Extended delay mode can be selected for very long de-
rations without the use of an external mixer, and
separate Delay-A and Delay-B outputs can be routed to
the consoie for uJtimate versatility and control.
Input Overload Protection
A two-stage compression-limiting circuit on the input ef-
fectively prevents transient overload, allowing input
levels to be optimized for dyra-mic range without fear of
sudden, harsh clipping, ald giving stage performers
new freedom to play without having to keep one eye on
input level.
Dl.namic Recirculation Control
A l-exicon exclusive, the D].namic Recirculation
Metronome/Clock Feafure
Iexicon's unique Clock Output provides the means to
coordinate the use of long delay "loops" with musical

Lines. It's like having ar erlra hand at the mixing console.
Delay Modulation/Sweep
All digital delay processors provide some form of sweep
function, but none is more versatile than Prime Time
II's. Three separate waveforms are provided, with the
capability to blend continuously between periodic sine
or square wave functions and sipal dependent envelope follower modulation. This fi:nction allows a broad
range of sweep effects, including "talking" flanges, trills,
dl.namic pitch sharpening for realistic doubling, and
others. A unique dyramic visual indicator shows the exact state of the sweep at any instant.

for a starding, 'locked-in," effect. Using regeneration,

The metronome/clock feature
