Acousticas has announced the release of its Lexicon 480 Impulse Response Library. Consisting of 711 unique impulse responses this library covers a wide range of the capabilities of the Lexicon 480.
The Lexicon 480 library has been divided into 9 categories ranging from the complete Lexicon Factory presets to carefully tweaked plates, churches and chambers, etc. One we really like is the "Stereo Maker". This edition is very special and is exclusively made for providing width to any sound source. A cluster of 4 delays have been assembled to achieve this and the delay time is variable by adding multipliers to the delay times.
Besides being compatible with any convolution reverb capable of reading .wav files, Acousticas offers proprietary* preset support for the following plug-ins on both Mac and Windows** platforms: Altiverb, IR1 & IRL, Revolver, TL-Space, Space Designer, Structure, Kontakt 2 & Kontakt 3.
* Proprietary preset support translations: No need for importation of the Impulse Response. It will load up directly within the plug-in.
** Kontakt 2 & 3 are revealing slow loading times due to the sheer number of IRs. For that reason, Acousticas was not able to offer proprietary preset support for those on the Windows platform. The IRs may however be loaded as plain wav files and are working as such on the Windows platform.
Pro Tools users receive presets for the Short Delay II Plug-In which emulates the modulation of the actual device. Users of other DAWS are provided with the information, via screen shots of digidesign's Mod Delay II, on how to recreate the modulation within their choice of DAW and plug-in.
