Lexicon has been doing Halls since, well, you could do a Hall. Our digital Halls first hit the studio in the 1970’s with the legendary 224 and haven’t missed a day since. With the introduction of the PCM Native Hall Reverb, you can create incredible mixes on your laptop or desktop anywhere in the world.
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 Hall algorithm shares these basic characteristics with the Random Hall and Concert Hall algorithms, but is smoother with a more even decay. Its initial density is also lower than Random Hall. The Hall plug-in provides a lush, natural, and unobtrusive reverb and works great on orchestral or classical instruments.

The PCM Native Hall Reverb is also available as part of the TEC Award nominated PCM Native Reverb Bundle. For other variations on Lexicon Hall Reverb, please look at the PCM and MX hardware series or the MPX, LXP or PCM Concert Hall Reverb plug-Ins
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.
‘The thing I noticed about Lexicon reverb when I first started using it, was that it sat in a very different place in the mix compared to other digital reverbs…Lexicon reverb almost appeared not to be there, until you turned it off and realized the beauty it was adding to your mix.’
