Now that you’ve learned a little bit about the LX480 and what it can do, let’s add more tricks to your arsenal.

This trick was a staple of the legendary Abbey Road Recording Studio, one of the most successful recording studios of all time.

Not only that, but because of the groundbreaking studio work done by the Beatles in the 60’s and 70’s, Abbey Road also became a fertile breeding ground for all sorts of studio experimentation.

Abbey Road helped artists and engineers pioneer recording techniques that changed what people thought was possible. But the studio itself also had a very particular and magical “sound”. Thanks to its unique design, isolation booths and incredible history, it has played a part in creating some of the most classic and enduring music of all time.

But we don’t want to give away this little trick right here. We’d rather let Pete Dowsett, from the Abbey Road Institute, explain what it is, and how it can work for you.

He also explains how you can use this trick to filter the highs and lows in your reverb sends.

Want to dig deeper into your reverb?


If you’re the type of engineer or producer that likes to dig a little deeper (OK a LOT deeper!) and wants to have tons of control of your reverb parameters, you need to check out the LX480 Complete from Relab.

LX480 Complete is a fully-featured reverb plug-in and considered to be the most accurate recreation of the original Lexicon 480L reverbs, including additional features and enhancements that meet the demands of the modern production workflow.
