Relab Development has announced the release of LX480 Essentials, an effect plugin which not only faithfully captures the sound of the classic 480L reverb hardware from Lexicon, but makes getting that legendary sound faster and easier than ever before.

The LX480 Essentials plugin allows you to transform tracks with the rich complex textures, and lush spacious reverb tails that only the Relab LX480 can deliver. It comes with signature presets, built-in hi and low pass filtering, and an improved workflow based on simple key reverb settings and features. The plugin allows you to create almost any space with tails that are deeper, longer and smoother.

LX480 Essentials includes four of the most famous algorithmic presets from the original Lexicon 480L hardware:

  • Fat Plate: What the 480 was famous for – lush, rich, shiny plates without any mix clutter. Designed to emulate the sounds of metal plates, with a relatively bright, colored sound. Great for vocals and percussion.
  • Medium Hall: One of the most traditional reverb sounds, this classic favorite was designed to emulate a real medium-sized hall. Great for giving tracks a sense of belonging to the same space with a smooth and even decay.
  • Small Ambience: Designed to become a part of the direct sound, the ambience algorithm is very effective in adding distance to a very dry sounding track. Great for really short drum rooms, and for an impression that is more felt than heard.
  • Large Wood Room: Designed to emulate colored sounding spaces, the room is typically less noticeable than a Hall. This algorithm can be effectively used to create the sense of space, without being overtly distinguishable. Great for film, TV and all genres of music production.

Available for Windows and Mac in VST, AU, and AAX formats, LX480 Essentials is on sale for only $35 USD for a limited time (regular $99 USD).
