A Digital Classic

A Digital Classic

The result of an intense, multi-year engineering effort — from poring over an impossible-to-find service manual, to studying an all-original "Golden Unit" — the Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb and Effects plug-in dutifully captures the complex space, texture, and otherworldly reverb tails that can enhance or transform vocal, guitar, synth, or drum tracks from mundane to heavenly.

Infinite Flexibility

Infinite Flexibility

Shimmering or dense, immediate or blooming, the 480L lets you create almost any space using Shape and Spread parameters, combined with Lexicon’s famed Split Decay Reverb algorithms. Adjust the Random algorithm's innovative Spin and Wander parameters to customize the movement in the 480L's famously long reverb tails. Or use the Ambience algorithm to add natural space and dimension, without losing the definition of instruments.

Stunning Multi-Effects

Stunning Multi-Effects

In addition to Lexicon's prized reverbs, the 480L plug-in's random time-varying "Effects" algorithm — available for the first time ever — lets you explore dramatic reverse, doubling, tremolo and chorus sounds. Combined with its unique four-voice Twin Delay algorithm, the Effects algorithm turns the 480L into a versatile multi-effects system with unending creative potential.

Better Workflow

Better Workflow

Ask any veteran engineer, and they'll tell you the Lexicon 480L's iconic Lexicon Alphanumeric Remote Control ("LARC") wasn't the easiest interface to grasp. Thankfully, the plug-in gives you an expanded parameter display, making its original controls easier to understand. Other workflow enhancements include simple A/B toggling of reverb machines, Input/Output Gain and Gain Link controls, as well as direct access to signal routing and metering.

Grammy-Winning Presets

The Lexicon 480L plug-in includes over 100 artist presets from Grammy-winning 480L power users such as Spike Stent (Beyoncé, Madonna), Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Nine Inch Nails), Ian Boxill (Janet Jackson, Quincy Jones), Jacknife Lee (The Killers, U2), and more, giving you a head start on your own mixes.

Classic Reverb - as many as I want and on any track I want it on

The best feature is of course - and this applies to any plug-in you can have multiple units.
I worked for lexicon in the days when the 960 came out until the 96 and I had a 480 as a reference. First of all the 480 I had needed a lot of love from a tech over the years, but the sound is/was stunning. The 480 simulation/emulation here is to my ears as good or at least almost as good. It is hard to tell if you cannot AB it. But having said this, according to my memory the 480 by UAD is the reverb and FX (I love lexicon delay sounds despite the fact that I have the TC plug-ins and real machines) I love and hwich inspires me to make music. Thats the most important thing to say about this plug-in!

Finally!

I have spent thousands of dollars on reverb boxes over the years and all I really needed was this plug-in.

100% ITB now!

One of the pieces of hardware I knew I would miss when I went 100% ITB. I have a few emulations of the 480. All of them are good. But not great. This emulation is great! It's definitely helped my journey going forth 100% ITB.

Brings Back Good Memories

Very nice...
A reverb you miss when it's muted in the mix.
While it needs a lot of DSP, one SHARC takes up far less room than a few large boards covered in ICs.

Very good!

I didn’t expect something else from this one to sound real good. It has a deep natural sound and the effects are dope as well. Only downside is that is uses a lot of DSP Power. That’s why I use to open max. 2 of them (Hall/Room) and maybe a native plate in addition to it.

epic

I can't believe how different it sounds from the UAD 224. Both sounds leagues better than any modern Lexiconn rack I've had. Software finally beating hardware out. Go figure.
