Pro Tools Expert Team member Julian Rodgers looks at the LX480 Reverb from Relab, this plugin recreates the iconic Lexicon 480L reverb, one of the few pieces of digital hardware to have achieved the desirable vintage status usually reserved for analogue hardware.

It can do subtle (though that's not something I associate with the 80s...) and in this review Julian visits some of the "Greatest Hits" of the Lexicon sound.
