A rare, fully customized reverb like no other — back after 30 years.

The AMS RMX16 was the world's first microprocessor-controlled, full-bandwidth, digital reverberator. Heard on hundreds — if not thousands — of seminal recordings from the 1980s onward, the RMX16 is still found in nearly every major recording studio the world over.

The unique and lush reverb programs of the RMX16 are instantly recognizable, from U2 and Peter Gabriel to Radiohead and Rihanna. Exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the new AMS RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb plug-in not only captures the sonics of the original hardware, it adds nine rare, custom programs, giving you double the sonic possibilities of the original AMS RMX16 plug-in.

Now You Can:

Record and mix with the only authentic RMX16 digital reverb plug-in, developed by original hardware designer Mark Crabtree

Apply classic Ambience, Nonlinear, Room, Hall, or Plate reverbs and unique Echo, Chorus, and Reverse effects

Get plug-in-only features including Dry/Wet Mix, Wet Solo, and easy “click-and-type” editing of control values

Harness the exact legendary reverb and delay algorithms of an ultra-rare, custom RMX16

Sculpt with an expanded palette of rare programs like Nonlin 1 from this quintessential rack unit

Get new presets from famous RMX16 power users Steve Levine, Ross Hogarth, David Isaac & more

The Only Authentic AMS RMX16 Emulation — Anywhere

The Only Authentic AMS RMX16 Emulation — Anywhere

In developing the UAD plug‑in version of this landmark processor, AMS founder Mark Crabtree dusted off his original schematics and extensive notes. It was a laborious two‑year process, but well worth the effort. The end result is a UAD plug‑in that contains exact instruction‑for‑instruction models of the original algorithms — giving you iconic reverb sounds in your DAW.

New Custom Programs

New Custom Programs

In the ’80s, if you were fortunate enough to have AMS's exclusive aftermarket bar code reader system, you could load nine additional programs into a stock RMX16, including 810 ms of delay, brighter rooms, and variations of the legendary RMX16 Nonlin, Reverse and Plate reverbs. The new AMS RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb plug-in gives you all of these ultra‑rare programs of a fully customized unit.

Simple Sonics

Simple Sonics

Designed to be musical rather than mathematical (Peter Gabriel owned a prototype unit and delivered notes), the original RMX16 was tuned and re-tuned by ear to provide as wide a "sweet-spot" of settings as possible. The RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb plug-in faithfully emulates the original’s straightforward control set — meaning no menus to navigate.

A Legendary Second Act

A Legendary Second Act

Whether you’re putting the finishes touches on a lead vocal, transforming a drum bus, or using an Apollo interface to track guitar with shoegaze ambience, the RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb plug-in marks a powerful update to this unmatched studio tool.

The best hardware emulation!

Incredible sound! I was lucky enough to work in a studio with this reverb and I can assure you that it sounds just like the real thing. It goes well with anything but particularly vocals and drums, in my very humble opinion.

Instantly recognizable

The long reverse preset is worth the cost of admission.

Cool sounding reverb..mojo

I had to pop on this one cause it had that retro verb sound we all love so much...at least those of us who love the analog records hayday of the 80's etc. forget the music, I just love the way those records sound sonically, and this unit was part of that. Love it, use it all the time. One of my MVPs

Nostalgic

I've been a record producer/musician/composer for 41 years. This reverb brings me that nostalgic & unique ambience that I need....

UA HAS DONE IT AGAIN!

So, I saw a few engineers using this plugin and thought "I have over 10 reverb plugins, I don't need any more." How naive of me. This thing is AMAZING. The exact sound I wanted for my drums & percussion for orchestral mixes or indie rock or super 80s style music.

issue opening daw after download

after installing this plug in I haven't been able to open Logic Pro. every time I click Logic Pro it pulls up the ams rmx16 expanded digital reverb and not my DAW. I can hear the effects on the microphone it sounds awesome so no complaint there but am unable to see my DAW. if anyone has a solution for this please contact me here or via email thank you... tkthagod14@yahoo.com

Beautiful 80’s reverb

The 80’s sound is back, and we need the 80’s equipment back too! This is such a great reverb unit. It’s worth having this just for the ambience and Nonlin. Amazing sound!

Best emulation on the UA roster!!!

Used the original for over 20yrs and I believe this is the best emulation on the UAD platform! If you like early Def Jam hip hop, 80’s synth wave or Industrial Metal this plugin is a no brainer!!!

Digital magic in digital world

You name it, that’s it, the beautiful RMX16. I use it everywhere, it’s very special, it has a loads of character but is also very transparent at the same time, weird in a great way.

Please UA continue to make such niche plugin emulations. Thanks.

Didn't Know I Needed

I had planned on only demoing this unit and purchase another. Well, I placed it on a buss for a vocal track I am producing at the time of this writing, and after a little tweaking, came up with a setting that is a perfect fit. I tried to replicate this with several other plugins, and though some came close (the UA Korg SDD 3000 was the closest), none captured the texture I was able to dial in with the RMX16. Even if I don't use it on another track, it's worth it for it's unique sound. Definitely a sound of its own. Looking forward to experimenting with some of the settings it is known for.
