If you want to go deeper into your reverb sound design, experiment a little, or enjoy a more visual workflow, we added an Advanced View packed with vital extras for modern production.

The eternal
reverb

Reverb comes in many forms. The bouncy rattling quality of a spring tank; the crystalline texture of a shimmer reverb; but sometimes you just want purity, warmth, and ultra-smooth decay. That’s where Rev LX-24 comes in.

Based on a true studio legend known for its effortlessly clean ambience, this FX plugin brings vocals, drums, guitars, synths, and entire mixes to life with its pristine long decays, quick-fire algorithms, and feature enhancements that give reverb a whole new creative purpose.

Crossover

With the Crossover set to 1kHz, the bass offset means that the low end has a much longer decay for a dark, rumbly reverb response.

Crunchy Drums

The Room A algorithm on some drums, creates a bouncy '80s-style texture, with a high distance setting and short decay.

Dusty Long Synths

Large Hall B with Vintage Mode and plenty of diffusion creates a dusty analog soundscape that oozes sci-fi vibes.

EDM Ducker

The Ducker effect turns a static synth riff into a pumping sidechain-style motif, using an external EDM kick as the trigger.

Lush Vocals

The Small Hall B preset on dry vocals, with high decay and almost no damping, creates a lush ambience.

Pitch Shift Guitar

Turn your dry guitar into a lo-fi centerpiece with Pitch Shift and Mode Enhancement.

At the dawn
of digital

Historically, reverb was a very physical thing. Boxes full of springs, metal plates suspended in a frame, sound amplified into a room and re-recorded to capture the space. Then, in the 1970s, everything changed.

The humble microprocessor - a small computer processor chip - was making waves in everything from car manufacture to synthesizer technology. It was only a matter of time before it found its way into recording studios, and the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverberator was one of the earliest cases.

Now Rev LX-24 brings it to life in the virtual realm with unmatched accuracy, from emulating its classic algorithms to careful modeling of its analog-to-digital converters. Enjoy a true atmospheric icon right in your DAW.

While not being the first ever digital reverb, its price point and simple feature set made it an irresistible asset to sound explorers of all persuasions. Its iconic calculator-esque control panel became a staple in studios worldwide, but it's the sound that made the biggest impression.

Unlike traditional reverbs, its sound was clean, dark, without unwanted artifacts or resonance. Its long tails and smooth output became the reverb of choice for decades, favored by everyone from Vangelis to U2, Peter Gabriel to Phil Collins - and it remains the spiritual ancestor of many contemporary ambient effects.
