Scotts Valley, CA (November 8, 2018)—The Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb unit has been a mainstay of studios and front-of-house areas since it first debuted in 1986. Now a Lexicon-approved plug-in emulation is being released by Universal Audio for use with its UAD hardware and UA audio interfaces.
The Lexicon 480L Digital Effects System and its fader-driven remote control have long been used to create reverb and effects textures, so the plug-in is based around that familiar controller form factor.
The unit was updated over the years, so the reverb and effects provided with the plug-in are derived from the final software version 4.10, with offerings including Plate, Hall, Room, Random, Ambience, Twin Delays and Effects algorithms. Additionally, the Lexicon 480L's random time-varying "Effects" algorithm, being made available for the first time, provides reverse, doubling, tremolo and chorus sounds.
To provide a head-start for users in some cases, the plug-in also comes with more than 100 artist presets for the unit, from Spike Stent, Chuck Zwicky, Eli Janney, Ian Boxill, Jacknife Lee and others.
The plug-in runs $349 and is available at the company’s website.
