Lexicon 224. Concert Hall algorithm.
Depth set fairly high. This pushes the "microphones" back in the hall, so the reverb attack fades in slowly. This also adds a few echos to the sound - with Depth set at the minimum value, you hear more of an instant attack, less echos.
Diffusion set kinda low, so you can hear a bit of chatter when he slams on the strings. Not as noticeable on the hammer-ons, but the bass notes are total chatter city. This might also be due to the depth setting
The "mode enhancement" (chorusing) is set fairly high, which causes the stereo image to have a lot of movement.
What a magnificent sound.
I was able to find out through a bit of research that this was the reverb used at the Windham Hill studios, but I recognized that sound right away, even through the laptop speakers. Put on headphones, and you're in that huge Concert Hall swirl.
Also, this thread is really great.
