Plugin Description

Relab LX480 Essentials not only faithfully captures the sound of the classic reverb hardware, but makes getting that legendary sound faster and easier than ever before. Transform tracks with the rich complex textures, and lush spacious reverb tails that only the Relab LX480 can deliver.


For the Relab LX480 Essentials, we modelled one of the very best of the 480s* ever – a true meticulously maintained “golden unit”

Relab was lucky enough to acquire one of the original 480s* from the Hit Factory in New York when they closed their doors.

You can’t even begin to imagine the list of mixes on which this unit was used!

This studio was home to sessions by Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, U2, Michael Jackson… The list is endless.

It doesn’t get much more perfect or “golden” than that!

And with the Relab LX480 Essentials you can now get that very same legendary reverb sound – natively in your DAW.

LX480 Uses The Exact Same Sample-Accurate Algorithms As Our Dual-Engine Version

Based on FOUR of Relab’s best-in-class reverb algorithm emulations of one of the most widely-used algorithmic reverbs ever built, you can now transform your tracks with the rich complex textures, and lush spacious reverb tails that only the Relab LX480 can deliver.

Fat Plate

What the 480 was famous for – lush, rich, shiny plates without any mix clutter. Designed to emulate the sounds of metal plates, with a relatively bright, colored sound. Great for vocals and percussion.

Medium Hall

One of the most traditional reverb sounds, this classic favourite was designed to emulate a real medium-sized hall. Great for giving tracks a sense of belonging to the same space with a smooth and even decay.

Small Ambience

Designed to become a part of the direct sound, the ambience algorithm is very effective in adding distance to a very dry sounding track. Great for really short drum rooms, and for an impression that is more felt than heard.

Large Wood Room

Designed to emulate coloured sounding spaces, the room is typically less noticeable than a Hall. This algorithm can be effectively used to create the sense of space, without being overtly distinguishable. Great for film, TV and all genres of music production.

Immerse Yourself In Rich Reverb Luxury Today! (Without Breaking The Bank)

The original 1986 hardware was met with much praise, and many still regard it as one of the finest reverbs ever created. At the time, it cost a whopping $20 000 (that’s more than $50 000 today!)

There was an additional 6 years spent researched and developing updates, with a final software upgrade (V4.10) in the early 90s.

Even though prices have dropped over the years for used units, the original hardware still fetches around $5000.

And now we’ve made it possible for you to enjoy one of the finest reverbs ever created, at a fraction of the cost and get the exact sound you’re looking for, in a fast and easy to use streamlined version.
