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.

Arturia Rev LX-24 (Press Release)

Rev LX-24 is an enhanced virtual replica of a retro ambiance 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.

The plugin gives you the character of the classic cream-colored box with those famously spacious algorithms, reanimated in detail, upgraded, and primed for DAW production. It is capable to create endless canyon reflections, crisp ambient clouds, or small room bounciness; the clean, musical, must-have reverb that changed the game.

Arturia’s take on the Lexicon 224 also has upgraded features to discover a different side to reverb. This includes visual editing up to sidechain-like effects.


  • classic digital algorithmic reverb effect
  • 8 perfectly-emulated original reverb algorithms: small hall A, small hall B, room A, constant plate, vocal plate, large hall B, chamber, and perc plate A
  • unique slider-based interface
  • essential controls like Decay, Damping, Pre-Delay, Dry/Wet, and more
  • emulated 12 & 24-bit converters for dark, warm sound
  • additional ‘Modern’ converter mode for cleaner sound
  • crossover & Offset controls for adjusting bass response
  • mode Enhancement introduces subtle pitch-shift modulation
  • newly-added features in the Advanced panel:
    • Interactive visualizer for quick click-and-drag reverb editing
    • Dynamic effects: Ducking, Gate, Tremolo
  • 100 presets for vocals, drums, guitars, synths, and abstract sound design
  • A/B comparison
  • NKS-ready

First Impression

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.
