A Concert Hall is a very special reverb, because it is one of the few based on a room (or even a building) that was built specifically to enhance the sound of a musical performance. Lexicon first mastered the 3-demensional aspect of these magnificent structures almost 40 years ago and the Native Concert Hall is the pinnacle of that lineage.
A hall is a comparatively large space with wall-to-wall distances that are typically several tens of meters. They are the principal venue for classical ensembles, but have proven to be useful for all types of music. The Lexicon® Hall algorithm provides an exceptional reproduction of these large, wide, panoramically wonderful spaces. The Concert Hall, with its noticeable modulation (causing strong pitch effects at higher settings) and a reverb tail with a life all its own is well suited for contemporary music applications, rather than orchestral or classical ensembles.

Halls are the most traditional reverb sounds, and of course, are based on a large man-made environment. Some halls are built specifically for performance, but many are just large spaces, which in the real world can lead to varied results. They first entered the digital domain with the EMT 250 followed soon after by the Lexicon 224.
If a digital reverb couldn’t accurately represent a hall, it would be a nice, but limited tool. Lexicon has mastered the intricacies of this three dimensional space and enhanced the experience with layer upon layer of configurable options. If you have heard a hall reverb in a modern recording, chances are, it’s a Lexicon.
“I love it when a company raises the bar on what's possible in a plug-in, and creates a new ‘go-to’. Performance, acoustical integrity, and ease of use, makes the PCM plug my first choice”
