A Brief History of the Room Reverb:
A hall or even a cathedral could be called ‘rooms’, but when it comes to reverb, a Room describes a specific space or modeled space that is smaller than most live performance spaces. Typically, a Room Reverb is the most flexible, universal reverb sound because it is smaller and more controlled, making it applicable to almost any instrument or voice. Where Echo Chambers were separate rooms, designed to capture the reverb of the signal independently, Room Reverb in its most traditional sense is usually the effect of the room captured through the normal recording process or via a single mic placed in the recording space to capture the live recording.
Lexicon and Room Reverb:
With the PCM Native Room Reverb, Lexicon set a new standard for Room algorithms. An instant studio hit, it’s hard to find a major production that doesn’t employee it’s unique, powerful sound.
“This is the plug-in I've been waiting for for years. The glorious, smooth, warm Lexicon sound, without the hardware, I can't imagine ever needing another reverb.”"
