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.

      17 % DSP !!!! and what a deal, YAY !!!!

      when i first got on board with UA i didn't know about coupons, or sales, or DSP ( finially found the DSP Chart in support after spending about $1,700 ) .... i have the 480L, and love it, but more as a post bounce in place staple DAW bus verb, because it's a DSP Hog .... i needed a good tracking comfort verb, but told my self i would get by with the feebees that came with my hardware, even though i, oddly, like digital plates better than physically modeled plates for some reason .... so yeah, i had been eyeballing the 224, but it wasn't even on my wish list....then i saw the offer i could not refuse, and i couldn't be happier.

      Atmosphere preset is sublime

      I use the atmosphere preset on every project to give a certain vibe to my tracks. Very useful reverb plugin!

      Smooth sounding Lexicon 224 Reverb

      I’ve always loved the Lexicon 480L and I was a bit new to UAD’s version, actually a very nice versatile version built upon UAD reputation of plugins. I’m using the Native Version and have found many uses, very nice performance, I have so many reverbs with my studio performing sessions each day.The Lexicon 224 has that professional sound with UAD’s capabilities.

      Essential Plugin

      Incredible plug-in that just adds so much to so many aspects of a mix and it’s even great as a guitar practice tool to play with a little more life than a dry signal

      It sounds really good, way better than other 224 emulations or convolution.

      It is a tasteful and good looking reverb plugin, very easy to use, giving that instant 80ies flavour to your mix, effortlessly.
      It's unfortunate that i can't compare it to the original unit.. as i know that a lot of people focus on how the plug in version compares to the real unit...
      I can't comment on that, my job is to focus on what i hear.
      But i used the 224X many times and own a decent collection of reverb units (lexicon, bricasti etc..) and a lot of plugins as well, and i strongly recommend anyone to try it, as it's a great product, to a more than reasonable price.
      I compared it to other 224 emulations & convolution, and obviously, Universal Audio makes it better.

      Sound is very good, GUI not user-friendly

      The sound from this plugin is high quality. Also the presets are very good. But the GUI seems to be inspired by the original hardware, which means it inherits all the drawbacks of the analog era, not taking advantage of the possibilities of good, digital GUI-design.
      I do not regret buying, due to the excellent sound.

      Add musical spaces to anything

      A great weapon for synths , I really like the sound, the parameters, the flexibility in terms of frequencies

      Just like the original hardware and more

      I began doing studio sessions in Montrea as a flute player l when the Lexicon 224 was released and this was the big thing. The Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb is a great digital reproduction of the real hardware and even better because more clean !

      Sounds great - GUI needs work

      Having used the Lexicon 22XL back in the 1980's and 1990's I can say that the sound of the UADx 224 plugin is so close I am no sure that there are very many people that could tell the difference between the plugin and a hardware unit. So very good job on getting the sonic characteristics right.

      In my DAW I had been using three different reverb plugin to get the sound I was looking for so often. I bought the Universal Audio 224 plugin, and opened my current project and the 224 plugin replaced the other 3 reverbs. No Problem, the sound is superb.

      However I have been unable to get the GUI to work properly, I get the Left half of the GUI and the right half is missing, simply not showing up at all. So to access all the parameters I have to drop to a generic mode and type in the settings I want to use. It works, but more time consuming. I have been going back and forth with Universal Audio Tech Support (nice folks there) and have tried everything they recommended and still the issue persists.

      I am running an Windows 10 machine and an AMD platform. But the issue exists in Studio One, Reaper, Ableton Live, and Harrison Mixbus32C which is my primary DAW for mixdowns. So I can't blame the DAW. Tried the Windows setting but that also had no affect. So to date the problem remains unresolved.

      That said, the sound is worth it.
