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 for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces.

Now You Can:

Track and mix with the legendary Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb, using the same algorithms as the original hardware

Employ eight classic reverb programs and one chorus program on drums, vocals, guitars, and more

Use the Plate and Concert programs for vintage '80s sounds

Mix with presets from famous Lexicon 224 users Chuck Zwicky (Prince), Kevin Killen (Peter Gabriel), and others

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.

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 UAD-2-only 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.

      Sex for the ears...

      My Lexi sounds sexy! The smooth tails are not only heard, they're felt emotionally. When blending with other reverbs I use Lexi for her tail. With minimal instruments, Lexi’s soft richness really enhances source material. It’s interesting to watch other people’s reactions as their eyes close tightly and they sloooowly inhale. This is truly an intimate reverb that is sex for the ears.

      best algorithm reverb out there..

      I own all the UAD verbs, they are all special but this verb is my favorite. I feel like I own the hardware version but with a noise kill button and zero real-estate.. try the demo, open up the Kevin Killen "Atmosphere" patch... listen to the quality of the long tails... the low, mid and high eq decays... It speaks for itself... my only wish is to have this as a surround plug-in.

      Go to Reverb chapter 1

      224 sounds lush and great on everything. is my go-to Hall in voices, drums, and almost everything.

      A pleasant surprise

      So I had a few extra plugins to choose when I bought my last Apollo. I asked a buddy of mine who is a terrific engineer and producer. He suggested the 224; I hadn't considered it. I've been all caught up in plate/spring/chamber land and hadn't thought about what might be missing... This is what was missing. It's amazing! So much kooky vibe that can be totally musical but spooky, scary, wild and weird. A very fun plugin.

      So warm and doesn’t use loads of DSP

      I’ve been trying a few reverbs recently. All the UAD reverbs have something realistic and magical about them, but I bought this because the mix of the DSP usage, price, and natural effect it had on my vocals, home-recorded piano, and drums, was just lovely. The sound of this really, in particular the tail on some settings, really draws you into the moment, so very happy with it.

      Magic

      “Magico”, perché dà alla musica quell’ambiente è quella profondità capace di aggiungere esattamente quello che manca.
      Il sapore vintage e i tantissimi parametri disponibili lo rendono un must-have fra i riverberi.

      A Classic

      I've gotten to work with the hardware several times over the years, don't know if this is identical to the hardware but, what I do know is that this is the smoothest and most musical reverb plugin I've experienced. Takes a little while to get used to the interface, but the sound is without peer!!!

      Amazing...


      I own the 480L hardware, but I am very impressed with the 224 UAD. I love the
      sound and the possibility to control it with the Avid S1 in realtime, the sound vibrates and it's very lively...

      LOW DSP ALTERNATIVE FOR 480L, not to mention...THE SOUND!!!

      I was on the fence getting this since I owned the 480L plug-in. However, after downloading the demo and seeing how the 224 used 10% less DSP than the 480L, not to mention, the sound is very similar, but has its own vibe, this was a no brainer at the sale price. Highly recommend for those wanting to manage their DSP, and wanting that Lexicon sound.

      Amazing reverb

      Amazing plugin, sounds like a hardware unit, really can dive you into 80s, sounds amazing with every audio source. Hardware unit was used on George Michael Faith album so I think this plugin would works awesome with vocal . It also uses small amount of DSP in comparison to Lexicon 480 and AMS RMX 16 and this is also big advantage for me as Arrow user

      What? Another 5 Star Review?

      Yeah. I have no freakin idea what the hardware did but this plugin is really interesting. Seems like a combinatorics problem I can’t solve. There are approximately infinity different sounds.

      SUPER FINE

      Really spot on reproduction of classic verb - pretty dam versatile too.

      What a plugin !!!

      First I wanted to buy the Lexicon 480L, but after demoing the 224, too, I decided to buy this one. For me it sounds smoother, more analog than the 480L. I use it to make rockmusic and it sounds well on vocals, drums, guitars, bass. Before that I used the Lexicon LXP Native Reverb bundle, but I don't need it anymore. Great !!!

      Sounds awesome

      So far I've used this on piano and String sections. Works great! There's also some weird & wonderful presets that you definitely should check out.
