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

In developing the UAD plug-in version of this landmark processor, Mark Crabtree of AMS Neve 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 Neve'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.

AMS RMX 16

We had two of these @ Paisley Park where I worked. The "Ambience" program alone is worth the price. Nothing like it on anything else.

Want 80s reverb. Welcome to the AMS.

I produce a lot of 80s era music and this is an essential tool for me. I love the 224 and 480 but the AMS is really the standout digi-reverb for me to create that 80s sound. Obviously great on drums but also amazing on vocals and pads. Well actually amazing on everything. NonLin prog is to die for. Also the expanded version has 9 extra programs that were initially not available to the original hardware users unless they had the special magic wand (go check the history of this bit of hardware).

Complicated?

Of course, this one has the same layout as the hardware one, I know that - but I find this plugin a bit complicated. Many others are quite easy to get a nice sound through. This one is quite hard, and I find the use for this plugin a little bit limited. This is not a reverb for everything and everyone. Also, it's a bit expensive.

ma superbe reverb en 1983

Elle coutait extrêmement cher à l'époque. C'était vraiment une bonne machine. Je l'ai préféré aux Lexicon 224 et 480 mais j'aimais également celles-ci. on faisait du brillant travail avec ces outils. Mais à l'époque c'était la ruine pour s'équiper. Aujourd'hui je retrouve à travers ce logiciel un plaisir de travailler et de créer de belles ambiances. Merci UAD.

As good as the real thing

Every now and again there's something this box provides that you can't get anywhere else. It's amazing to have it on tap in plugin form
