The latest gear acquisition for my studio has been a Lexicon Native Reverb plug-in bundle. I was a little skeptical at first until I downloaded the demo. And wow, man that rev sounds good! The sound is very musical and adds a whole new dimension to sound of the mix. I’m glad that I’ve decided to hold off on mixing down all the tunes so I could slip the new software into the rig. And by the way, not to knock the reverbs that come with LOGIC, but Lexicon has been making reverbs since the 70’s and they really have a world class product (in my opinion).
(see http://www.lexiconpro.com/product.php?id=167) to see what I’m taking about.
Speaking of “holding off”, I was going to hold off mixing down the tunes until after all th tracks were completed. For the sake of expedience and the feeling of having something accomplished something, I’ve decided to nix that idea and start mixing down stuff now. Now that the groovy reverberation is reverberating, I want to go forward with the mixing stage of the album (or at least start moving in that direction).
