Grant Nelson releases Lexicon 480L impulse response library

Grant Nelson has announced that his personal library of Lexicon 480L IR’s is now available to download.

About 12 years ago I sat down and recorded a complete set of impulse responses from the legendary & industry standard Lexicon 480L digital reverb unit. In fact it’s the very same one that you can see the remote control unit for in this picture below…

The reason for doing this was so that I could have a “virtual” 480L inside the box in my Pro Tools rig via Audio Ease‘s excellent Altiverb plug-in.

They sounded amazing too, I A/B’d them next to the actual unit and for the most part you really couldn’t tell the difference. Anyway, I’ve used these IR’s on virtually every recording I’ve made over the past 10 or so years, they are my go to reverbs for vocals without question.

The IR library is a free download at Housecall FM.

Universal Audio enhances Apollo audio interface with key system features & new plug-ins

Universal Audio has unveiled numerous future enhancements for its award-winning Apollo High-Resolution Interface — turning the popular unit into a scalable system capable of recording larger music projects on both Mac and Windows 7 machines.

Among the new Apollo interface features slated for delivery in the first half of 2013 is multi-unit cascading, which combines two Apollo interfaces into a single elegant system via FireWire or Thunderbolt. Multi-unit cascading provides simultaneous use of 16 analog inputs / outputs, including eight Apollo mic preamps, plus 12 digital inputs and outputs — perfect for tracking a full band.

The boost in Apollo connectivity is navigated via a redesigned Console application, offering better visual feedback, a new Mix-Merge mode, and a Pro Tools mode which greatly simplifies integration with Pro Tools systems.

“A year after its introduction, Apollo has become the top-selling audio interface in its class,” says UA CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam Jr. “We’re committed to enhancing its creative possibilities, through ongoing software improvements and a growing roster of new plug-in titles from UA and Direct Developer partners like Softube.”

Apollo owners will soon be able to play and record in real time through some of the world’s finest guitar amp emulations, courtesy of the acclaimed Softube Amp Room plug-ins — including Vintage Amp Room, Metal Amp Room, and Bass Amp Room. Softube Amp Room plug-ins will be available as part of an upcoming UAD/Apollo software update, along with the brand new LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection and API 500 Series EQ Collection plug-ins.

Apollo is a high-resolution 18 x 24 FireWire/Thunderbolt-ready audio interface that delivers the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording. Using Apollo, music producers and performers can track audio through a range of classic UAD analog emulation plug-ins — from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon and more — in real time, and with a sleek, elegant workflow on both Mac and Windows 7 systems.

Universal Audio releases UAD Software v5.9, Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in for UAD-2

Universal Audio Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb for UAD-2

Universal Audio has released version 5.9 of the UAD Software, including the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb for the UAD-2 platform.

From the moment it was unleashed on the audio industry in 1978, the original Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb — with its tactile, slider-based controller and famously lush reverb tail — almost single-handedly defined the sound of an entire era, and remains one of the most popular and influential digital reverb units of all time.

The result of UA’s acclaimed modeling expertise, the Lexicon 224 plug-in for UAD-2 precisely captures all eight reverb programs available in original 224 firmware version 4.4, including every tunable parameter, with unique fader-style controls — inviting easy experimentation and sonic exploration. In UA’s exhaustive modeling tradition, the Lexicon 224 emulation also incorporates the original unit’s input transformers and early AD/DA converters — nailing the entire signal path right down to the last detail.

Additionally, the Lexicon 224 emulation for UAD-2 features direct input and presets from famous Lexicon 224 users, including Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Jeff Beck), Eli Janney (Jet, Ryan Adams), David Isaac (Eric Clapton, Luther Vandross), E.T. Thorngren (Talking Heads, Bob Marley), and Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel).

Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb features

  • Lexicon-endorsed model of legendary 1978 hardware, using the very same algorithms from the original hardware.
  • Models the entire analog circuit and digital path for total authenticity.
  • Eight reverb programs and one chorus program from final Lexicon v.4.4 firmware.
  • Features artist presets from famous Lexicon 224 users.

The Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in is available to purchase for $349 USD.

In addition to the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in, v5.9 features improvements for the UAD-2 Satellite Firewire DSP Accelerators, including support for Avid/Digidesign 002 and 003, support for connecting up to two UAD-2 Satellites on qualified Intel-based iMac®, MacBook Pro®, or Mac mini® computers, lowered latency specs, and other enhancements for optimized performance.

Universal Audio has announced the impending release of the highly anticipated Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in for the UAD-2 platform.

Thorngren (Talking Heads, Bob Marley), and Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel).

“The Lexicon 224 has been a significant player on hit records for three decades,” said Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio. “But as with so many great vintage hardware units, original Lexicon 224′s are getting harder and harder to find. Luckily, with Lexicon’s assistance and our own elite DSP team, we can offer the true, iconic sound of the 224 to anyone making music with a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator on their Mac and PC.”

“The 224 was really the product that launched the Lexicon brand,” commented Michael MacDonald, Harman Professional Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “At Lexicon, we continue to push the boundaries of audio processing in new directions, but we entrusted UA to accurately model this classic unit from our past, which is really their forte. We look forward to similar collaborations with UA in the future.”

Available for purchase via UA’s Online Store in Q2 2011, the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in will sell for $349US. Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in features include:

  • Lexicon-endorsed, UA-modeled for complete accuracy
  • 8 reverb programs and 1 chorus program from final Lexicon v.4.4 firmware
  • Models entire analog circuit and digital path for total authenticity

The Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in will be available as part of the new UAD Software v5.9.0 release, slated for Q2 2011. In addition to the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb plug-in, v5.9.0 includes UA’s first-ever Direct Developer plug-ins from Brainworx and SPL, as well as improvements for UAD-2 Satellite users.
