Lexicon PCM Reverb Bundle

Hey all, there are some crazy discounts in Lexicon software these days.

Has anyone up here directly compared the hardware version of the PCM96 with the Lexicon PCM Reverb Bundle? Anyone have thoughts there?

I was actually thinking about picking up the hardware version, but the software, especially with the good discounts currently, is looking pretty attractive.

How is this software? Anyone have strong feelings one way or the other? Also, is the software pretty stable or is it buggy?

Thanks for any info you can share...

I have the PCM reverb plugins and it really does sound amazing. Highly recommended.

I've been a reverb junkie for more years than I can remember, principally because it's so important to me in acoustic music. Eventually I narrowed thousands of commercial and custom IR's down to an elite few, all the while using recordings incorporating Lex's h/w units as my benchmarks. Now since the PCM bundle I don't think about another reverb. It has the musical transparency I've long pursued in a plugin. Truly remarkable, powerful, and a great pleasure to use. I run it without incident mostly in SAWStudio but also in Sequoia/ Samp.

Love it

I started out with hardware reverb units. Not the super high end stuff. But I had Lexicon and Digitech racks. The Lexicons were always my favorite.

Eventually I moved to an all software setup. I never heard a reverb that really blew me away. The best I had was the realverb pro from UAD.

But then I got the Lexicon PCM reverb.

Wow.

I think it's amazing. It's the best reverb I've ever owned. Again, I never had some super high end pro studio piece of gear.

But it's better than every hardware reverb I ever owned and it's head and shoulders above any reverb plugin I've ever had or used.

The sound is rich. It's not tinny or metallic. I mean, it's lush. Of course there's also more subtle plates and stuff but I love, love, love the Hall reverbs.

It's been completely stable with my rig. I have a new PC running Ableton Live.

Not a CPU hog either.

I think it's totally worth the money.

Did they fix the plugin delay reporting? I remember some weird phasing-like issues when I demo'd them a while back. Something like they had a longer plugin delay than they would report to the DAW (32 vs 64 samples)? I am using PT 9 "LE'ish".
And I found like 10 different "Tiled Room" presets but none of them sounded as good as the Tiled Room in my PCM 70 unit.

And why exactly is suggesting JRRShop for being an even less costly vendor 'off topic?
