Arturia Rev- LX-24 is a virtual replica of the era-defining Lexicon 224 hardware digital reverb expanded with more features.
Reverbs are among the favorite effects of music producers. Mainly because they improve every sound and make it sound nicer. When talking about reverbs, the Lexicon 224 cannot be ignored, which is a legendary digital reverb.
There are several authentic emulations of this classic on the market. Yes, also, some modern reverb plugins are heavily inspired by this hardware but without being an emulation. And now Arturia also has a plugin that replicates this era-defining sound.

The FX Collection has a variety of new but also vintage-inspired/emulated effect plugins. It’s no really a secret that a Lexicon 224 emulation is on Arturia’s to-do list. It’s one of the most legendary reverbs and fits perfectly in their FX plugin lineup. I think it’s nice that it’s not just a pure emulation but a reverb with advanced features.
