It had to happen: Lexicon has just announced its PCM Native Reverb Plug-in Bundle, porting some of its reverb algorithms to native platforms (AU/VST/RTAS, iLok required). Not so much info on Lexicon website at the moment (there are a few videos anyway, quite generic actually) and a few typos here and there, but we’re glad to see also older PPC Macs are supported (this means also the plugs are not so cpu-hungry). Well, someone should just tell them that there are no Audio Units plugs for Windows…
We know, the question is: where do these seven algos come from exactly? In the videos there’s just one reference to an “old algorithm” (for the Concert Hall), and a reference to the PCM96 for the Vintage Plate algorithm, but not more than that. Let’s wait for an official word from Lexicon…
Updated news: straight from the horse’s mouth (read: the developer, Michael Carnes): “I wrote these plugins in addition to all the professional reverbs going back to the PCM90. As you might suspect, that earliest work is primarily a port of work invented by David Griesinger. Since then, I’ve added more and more content of my own. The most modern of our reverbs still contain the old DNA, but they’ve been considerably refined over the years. The source of these new plugins in the PCM96, although I added one new version of the plate that isn’t on any hardware at all yet.”
No demo and no price available at the moment. The Lexicon PCM Native Bundle demo is now available, see here.
