Universal Audio releases Lexicon 480L plug-in

Universal Audio has released the Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb and Effects plug-in, an emulation of the popular studio reverb unit.

The Lexicon 480L has been a sonic benchmark and central piece of studio consoles ever since its release in 1986. And while vintage units can easily cost thousands of dollars, UA’s plug-in will only set you back $349.

It includes all of the legendary original reverb and modulation algorithms, a re-creation of the “LARC” remote, and more than 100 artist presets.
