Download GN’s Personal Lexicon 480L IR’s


Hey guys,

Following on from the samples I dished out the other week I’m gonna share these with you too.

About 12 years ago I sat down and recorded a complete set of impulse responses from the legendary & industry standard Lexicon 480L digital reverb unit. In fact it’s the very same one that you can see the remote control unit for in this picture below….



The reason for doing this was so that I could have a “virtual” 480L inside the box in my Pro Tools rig via Audio Ease‘s excellent Altiverb plug-in.

They sounded amazing too, I A/B’d them next to the actual unit and for the most part you really couldn’t tell the difference. Anyway, I’ve used these IR’s on virtually every recording I’ve made over the past 10 or so years, they are my go to reverbs for vocals without question.

Over the years I have given these out to quite a few fellow producers and they have somehow found their way onto file sharing sites, as everything seems to do these days, but I can assure you that I recorded these, processed the IR’s and created the presets you will find inside the download, even though other people may have tried to lay claim to them :/

So how do you use these?

There are full install instructions inside the zip file but you WILL need an impulse response player plug-in. Either Altiverb, as mentioned above or Logic’s Space Designer. I’m sure there are plenty of other plug-in’s on other platforms but I only use Mac’s so that’s all I can tell you about i’m afraid.
