Harman releases the MPX native reverb plug-in

Harman has announced the introduction of its MPX native reverb plug-in, bringing industry-standard Lexicon digital reverb to a wider range of users.

The plug-in offers seven different acclaimed Lexicon reverb types and more than 100 studio presets, all accessible via a single-screen interface.

“For over 40 years Lexicon has been considered the ultimate in digital reverb, and the introduction of the MPX native reverb plug-in brings home recording and project studio owners the distinctive, richly detailed sound quality that only Lexicon can provide. The new MPX plug-in will take any studio to the next level,” said Rob Urry, vice president of Harman’s Professional division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier business units.

More than 100 studio presets are provided including exclusive artist presets from world-renowned studio engineer and music producer Ken “Duro” Ifil. The Lexicon MPX native reverb plug-in also offers seven classic Lexicon reverb types including Small Plate, Large Hall, Large Chamber and Room.

The PC and Macintosh compatible plug-in is designed to work with popular DAWs like Pro Tools, Logic and Nuendo, as well as with any other VST, Audio Unit or RTAS compatible host.

A colour display provides real-time visualisation of the frequency spectrum and a wide range of parameter adjustments are available. The user interface is designed to give ready access to key parameters with a layout of virtual knobs, buttons and menus. The MPX includes options to fine-tune and personalise presets, which can then be saved in a DAW-independent format and loaded into a different DAW. A Compare button allows instant comparison of presets and user-modified sounds.

Each reverb type can be run in mono, stereo or mono in/stereo out, and on-screen input and output meters are provided for precise level setting. The Lexicon plug-in is Native only, and requires iLok2 authorization.
