The legendary Lexicon 480L digital reverb officially comes to UAD 9.7

Universal Audio has announced the latest update to its UAD platform, with version 9.7 including the legendary Lexicon 480L digital reverb.

The new plugin is the only officially endorsed emulation of the renowned studio reverb and also sees the first time for the 480L's random time-varying "Effects" algorithm in the software realm.

Combining the dramatic reverse, doubling, tremolo and chorus sounds with its four-voice Twin Delay algorithm, the Effects algorithm turns the 480L into a versatile creative powerhouse.

The 480L is available now for £260/$349 and you’ll find more info on the Universal Audio website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
