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

A dream come true!

I always dreamed of owning a 480L. Ever since I first heard it on drums and congas in the 80s, in a big studio. This emulation is spot on. Love it!

Amazing

This is far the best reverb And delay I have in my plug ins. Sounds so clean and as perfect as it can be for vocals and many instruments. Apollo never disappoints me.

The soundtrack reverb I have been looking for

A lush, premium sounding production resource. This reverb is silky, spacious and ultimately real. Despite the old age of the original unit, I find its quality to be timeless. I have been constantly using it for both big drums and orchestral instruments. This is the soundtrack reverb I have been looking for. Well worth its price.

Does not disappoint!

I invested in Universal Audio hardware (Satellite Octo) specifically so I could use this plug-in. I have tried all major competitors products and this one is absolutely phenomenal! I am very familiar with the original hardware 480L and this does not disappoint whatsoever.

It's a 480L!

If you're not used to high end reverbs and especially if you've never used a 224 or 480 you'll listen to this and think, yeah it sounds great, nice and lush but no different to anything else and is not really blowing me away as such. The secret to the original 480 was how it blended and melted in to the mix in a way no other reverb does, almost so you don't notice you have a tone of reverb on. This does that and like the original 480 wraps your vocals, guitars or whatever in a beautiful lush ambience... and they are now part of the mix. As is often the case with UA it's way over priced for a plugin that only runs on their hardware so wait for one of the sales. If you can grab it at a sale price though it does the job and is a 480!

480L UAD Plugin - Best Verb I have

I first heard this reverb (Hardware version) in a Capital Records recording seminar. I already had the UAD EMT 140 and the Lexicon 224 plugins. Both very nice and complimentary tools, but the Lexicon 480L that I heard was sooo natural. Since it was only available in hardware at the time and obscenely expensive, there was no way i would ever be able to afford one. When I saw the announcement from UAD that they had modeled this device, I was excited to Demo the product. It sounded exactly as I remembered.

So, Like everyone else, I waited for a good sale price to come along and made the purchase. This is one of those items where there is absolutely NO buyers remorse. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this reverb. It's os easy to dial in a natural reverb sound that is not over powering but still lush . I've been using it mostly on vocal and acoustic guitars right now, but I know it will shine on just about anything. This is the Best reverb Plugin that I have ever heard. Absolutely Fantastic Plugin UAD!

Great Classic !

Great Job UAD!!! Love having this plugin in tool bag, truly a classic for a reason.

Amazing!

An excellent plugin! The reverb sounds very spatial, dense, warm and soft, but the outline of the signal is always preserved. The parameters can be fine tuned and controlled. For me, next to Capitol Chambers or EMT 140, is the most useful and successful Hall plugin from UAD.
