An era-defining digital reverb.

From the moment it was unleashed in 1978, the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb — with its tactile, slider-based controller and famously lush reverb tail — single-handedly defined the sound of an entire era.

From Talking Heads' Remain In Light to U2's The Unforgettable Fire, the Lexicon 224 remains one of the most popular digital reverb units of all time. Now you can track and mix with this singular piece of audio history with the Lexicon 224 Reverb plug-in.

In this video, learn how to thicken lead vocals, tighten up drum loops, and give synths stunning ambience with the Lexicon 224.

A Breakthrough in Emulation

A Breakthrough in Emulation

Using the exact algorithms and control processor code from the original hardware, the Lexicon 224 plug-in precisely captures all eight legendary reverb programs and the chorus program — based on the Lexicon 224's final and hard-to-find firmware version 4.4. The Lexicon 224 plug-in also incorporates the original hardware’s input transformers and early AD/DA 12-bit gain stepping converters.

Easy Navigation

Easy Navigation

Every parameter from the original hardware is present in the Lexicon 224 plug-in, and exposed as dedicated sliders and buttons. Lexicon’s distinctive Bass/Mid “split decay” adjustments and Crossover control set the highly tunable reverb image, while the Treble Decay rolls off high frequencies. Use the Depth control to adjust the distance between source and reverb, while Predelay produces a short delay between the sound source and the onset of reverberation. Diffusion affects how quickly the echo density in the reverb builds up over time.

Modeled to the Last Detail

Modeled to the Last Detail

For total authenticity, the UA-exclusive System Noise control enables or disables the inherent dynamic system noise of the original Lexicon 224 hardware — removing the modeled gain stepping, parameter zippering, and quiescent noise. Clicking the “Open” text to the right of the display panel exposes several hidden controls, including Input/Output gain and Pitch Shift, and even a selectable “Bug Fix” mode which enables/disables historical bug fixes from the Hall B and Chorus programs. Taken together, the Lexicon 224 plug-in is the world’s most authentic model of a true studio classic.

      Best reverb for voice, acoustic guitar and violin...

      I would love to... But it doesn't work...

      I have paid and downloaded The Lexicon Software. It worked for a day... then ceased to work... I contacted UA support, who basically said it was a problem with ILok. My understanding is that it needs to be licensed and UA don't seem that willing to do so... Very sad... I will update this review if things change.... But for now... That's where i am... I will get a refund from the credit card peole if i can...

      Unavoidable !

      Throughout my career as a musician in the biggest Parisian Recording Studios ( France ) I saw it placed on the SSL & NEVE consoles... From now on, I have it in my computers ( with its big sister, the 480 ! ) and I am delighted !

      Thanks to all at Universal Audio !!
      I knew when I started investing back in 2018 with my first audio interface I ever owned, an Apollo 8p, (no X yet), that there was something special about UAD.
      Continued Success to all of us!!

      Nice sounding reverb

      It looks and sounds like a true vintage Lexicon. I am impressed by how it works in the mix. But, in some of the projects, it does not recognize it is authorized. I never had such an issue with any other UAD plugin. I have no idea what is that all about, but restarting project and rebooting computer did not help at all.
