Mix with the world's most famous algorithmic reverb, in all its lush digital glory.

Released in 1986, the Lexicon® 480L Digital Effects System and its iconic fader-driven remote control are recognized the world over — residing at the center of famous studio consoles for more than 30 years. The 480L's spacious reverb and vivid effects textures are a coveted sonic benchmark, helping to shape thousands of chart-topping tracks to this day.

Now available exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces, the UAD Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb and Effects plug-in is the world's only Lexicon-endorsed emulation of this classic studio reverb — expertly capturing its unique, infinitely moldable ambience and modulation splendor.

Record and mix with the only authentic Lexicon 480L digital reverb plug-in, derived from the final v4.10 firmware

Experiment with colorful "Plate," "Ambience," "Hall," and "Room" algorithms on your sources

Apply out-of-the-ordinary "Random," and "Effects" programs, including doubling, tremolo, and chorus textures

Sculpt your own textures with an improved version of Lexicon's famous "LARC" controller

In this video, learn how to inject space and dimension to lead vocals and guitars, as well as unique effects on background vocals.

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

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.

Great great great reverb

I was in doubt if my Lexicon 224 is enough and this one is just a better version, turned out they are 2 different reverbs with different uses, never regret for buying this awesome reverb! love it! ! !

Lexicon 480L

When connecting the plugin.... error (code -38) Technical support does not work - a bot communicates with you, which politely informs you that it cannot help in any way. I'm disappointed....such a company and such customer service. Result: WASTED MONEY!!!

No luck with Lex 480

I got a Lex 480 plug for my UAD 2 in the sale at the end of Dec. '23. The other plug I got at the time, the Pultec mid-range EQ, came through fine and is working well. The Lex 480 became visible in the plugin list on the UAD app, but has never shown up in Reaper's list of plugins, UAD or VST. After some communication w/ UAD support in which they basically told me they were too busy to talk to me, I've kind of given up. So Lex 480 is a no go in Reaper 7? Oh well.

Love this 480L!

This is the quintessential 480L emulation. It's so easy to get the right sound, from dark and vibey to modern or classic. This reverb is it!

Fantastic sound, but...

Probably the best sounding Lexicon 480 plug!
But it needs a GUI refresh and... tada... 60% DSP power... So I'm looking forward to a native version. Then it will be *****

I'm very picky with reverbs, I own the 224 and had a hard time using it but this just works every time! One of my go-tos right now!
