Arturia Rev LX-24 Copies Classic ‘Blade Runner Reverb’

Arturia has introduced Rev LX-24, a new reverb plugin, based on the classic Lexicon 224, the early digital reverb that was a key element of the Vangelis sound on works like his Blade Runner soundtrack.

The Lexicon 224 has been emulated previously, notably with Universal Audio Lexicon 224, which is based on the original algorithms, and Valhalla DSP’s Vintage Verb. Rev LX-24 expands on the original with a Modern mode, for cleaner sound, advanced features, dynamic effects and more.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Rev LX-24 is an enhanced virtual replica of a retro ambience box that defined reverb for a generation. Make your mixes bloom with real-feeling space, cave depth atmosphere, and subtly-sparkling texture in seconds with a vintage digital sound that refuses to get old.”
