Warren described his live rig his Guitar World interview, April 1987: "The output of [Marshall 100-watt amplifier's] preamp section goes into a control board for the effects I’m using, which are a Lexicon PCM-41 delay, a PCM-42 delay, and the Yamaha SPX90." In 1987 Ratt only seemed to have custom-made midi or relay switchers on stage instead of pedalboards. As you can see, Warren and Robbin had some similarities in their rigs, with PCM 42 being one of them.more
In [this interview with *Guitar World* magazine](http://www.guitarplayer.com/artists/1013/daniel-lanois-takes-his-studio-to-the-stage/51278), Lanois states that he'll sometimes run his pre-recorded tracks/loops rig through a couple of delay units. "I do these Jamaican triplet echoes with a Lexicon PCM 42 or Prime Time 2," he states.more
"My regular looping rig is a modified Lexicon PCM 42—the first one made of its kind. [Lexicon designer] Gary Hall modified it around 1981 to have approximately 20 seconds of sampling/delay time. The originals only had five seconds. I have another PCM 42 that was modded to feature a reverse-play switch."more
"In the past I used the Lexicon 224, 480 and to this day I still use the PCM 42. With Lexicon, you know the type of effect you are going to get and what the quality of the sound is," he said. "With the younger generation of musicians, they don't necessarily know the heritage of Lexicon, but when they hear something they like, they will ask you what they are hearing. That has been the case on more than one occasion when I've been using the Lexicon plug-in."more
