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.

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 lushness!

Just picked the up in the half year sale. I wish I had purchased it when UAD released it first - I would have saved myself a lot of time and cash playing around with other reverbs.
His plugin is a classic masterpiece!

The Sound that makes albums.

I was completely annoyed that I did the demo on one of my own songs, Halo In The Steam, with the 480L on lead vocals and drums. Annoyed because the demo expired and I tried for 2 days to come up with a compatible reverb using some other well regarded plugins and I simply couldn’t satisfactorily replicate the sweet and magical sound this gave. I grudgingly ponied up the money and it was just the missing ingredient. Im glad I did.

Lexicon 480L a Legjobb Reverb és Effektgép.

Ezt a Lexicont kerestem eddig. Nagyon elégedett vagyok a minőségével és a kezelhetőségével. Csak ajánlani tudom mindenkinek. Ez egy nélkülözhetetlen eszköz a zenéléshez. A dobokhoz és a szóló hangszínekhez és még sok máshoz is tökéletes.

Lexicon 480L

I have 224 lexicon UAD plug-in, have I thought for a long time to buy 480l or not? They wrote a lot in reviews about wasted money. Finally I managed to try it and do not regret it at all. It reads perfectly in the mix. many different algorithms. A great tool for creativity! Thanks to the universal audio for the opportunity to touch expensive devices and use them in creativity!

LARC

The 480L sounds pretty good but eats processing power.
