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.

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.


Modeled exactly after the original AMS RMX16 design and schematics under supervision of its original designer, Mark Crabtree

Fully endorsed by AMS Neve as the world’s only authentic emulation

Record and mix with the authentic AMS Neve RMX16 in use by top studios worldwide

Access 18 classic RMX16 Programs such as Ambience, Room, Hall, and Plate reverbs, as well as Delay, Echo, Chorus, Nonlinear, Reverse, Image and Freeze effects

Longing for this as a native!

You really get the feeling of a luxury studio 40 years ago. Dream reverb... But UAD needs to revamp the GUI and create a native version. It will take the plugin world by storm.

Brings you back in time

This thing sounds so old school and so classic that no matter what I do I can't just smile and remember all the records my parent's and I would listen to growing up when I put this on a track

One of the best plugins for reverb/room

This plugin sounds fantastic! The control of the parameters is simple, clear and very effective. One of the best plugins for reverb! Highly recommended!

Lush reverb with an outdated interface

I love the sounds I get from this plugin but the interface is so hopelessly analog. Once you use it a bit it's actually pretty straightforward but it takes me a minute every time I insert it to get situated. A little goes a long way and I thought it was horrible until I figured out that "wet solo" is engaged on some presets.

Aftyer trying to decide which verb to get between this and hitsville. I ultimately decided on thgis one. Great old school vibe that is still relevant today. Yeah it does that 80's thing which I love but it's much more than that. Great charachter verb for sure.

It sounds killer

So I’ve tried on snare and percussion so far and works like a charm. It’s the 80z vibe and the gated verb sounds insane

Very Musical Reverb

I tested this plugin and it sounds great. I own a lot of different types of reverb plugins and I must say, I think this is one of the best, if not the best one I've heard. I find it to be very musical.
