The Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-in Bundle is a set of seven different reverb processors all based on Lexicon's high quality formula that has made them one of, if not the leader in digital reverb for so many years. This bundle is pretty much compatible across the board as far as I can tell as it works for both Mac and PC and in VST, RTAS, and AU plug-in formats. I wasn't the one to install this plug-in on the systems that we've got at the studio, as they were already installed before I started working there. Even though there are seven different plug-ins here for different types of reverbs, they all more or less share the same sort of interface. There are graphs to show you the depth and space that you're trying to emulate, which is handy, as well as metering for input and output levels. Each also has a number of high quality presets that make for great starting points if nothing else. I haven't had a gander at the manual for these plug-ins myself, but it's pretty easy to use on it's own where you probably won't really need one.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The main room that we've got the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-in Bundle running on is Pro Tools HD based with a Mac Pro computer. The computer has 10 GB of RAM and dual 2.66 Ghz Intel Xeon processors. We have the bundle running on all of our systems at the studio, and all of them are Pro Tools HD based. However, since this is a native bundle of plug-ins, it does run on RTAS and will take up a little bit of our processing power inside the box, which of course isn't ideal in an HD situation. Having said this, I've been running them all on auxiliary channels and haven't had a performance issues with it to date.

OVERALL OPINION

The Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-in Bundle is one of the most complete bundles of reverb sounds available to home and professional studio owners out there. The sounds are rich and full, just like all of the hardware Lexicon processors that I've used as well. Between the seven different types of reverb plug-ins, the possibilities are pretty much endless as you could get lost for days trying to get new sounds with all the possibilities here. On the other hand there are some great presets, so you can also get some awesome sounds quick and easy from the start. The types of reverb plug-ins included here are Plate, Vintage Plate, Hall, Room, Concert Hall, Random Hall, and Chamber. If you're interested in getting an incredibly complete reverb package for your home or professional studio, the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-in Bundle is one of your best bets out there.
