    I've never owned a 224 but having worked with other outboard processors and hearing loads of Eno and Vangelis records I have to say this 224 emulation is very nice.

    However, I don't feel it's got quite the "presence" that the real thing would have. I enjoy it more as a send where it definitely gives you that 224 ambience but when using it as an insert I just can't help but feel like it's missing a bit of "presence" or "sparkle" or "hardness" that even a cheaper outboard unit like by Dynacord DRP or the Ensoniq DP4 would give you. Seems to suck tone a bit and I'm having trouble getting the full-on epicness out of it . . .

    Is it good? Yes.

    Is it still just a plug-in? Yes, for now.

    4 Stars.

    Good Sound but no German Manual

    by P. Datz . 4 out of 5 stars

    Very good Sound, but it would be perfect in handling for me with a GERMAN Manual. Please tell me how to get this.

    UAD must have

    by M. Spaventi . 4 out of 5 stars

    Nothing new here compared to the other reviews, tried the demo, took advantage of the great Christmas sale and got my copy. Fat reverb, lush sound, great for sound design and classic lexicon sound, never tried/had the real hardware unit so can't say much about the differences, it just sounds great.
    Can't use it for everything cuz of the serious signature sound but hey that's the fun of having a choice.
    I give it 4 stars only cuz seems dsp hungry on my uad2 solo, anyway is a must have, great plugin!

    For Psy & Progressive trance artists...
    If you manage to make your own presets you will realize how bad are your old reverb plugins! 4 stars because the presets are not for dance music so much! Although some presets are a start point to make it sound really good!

    Great sound

    by M. Lerager . 4 out of 5 stars

    Even though it's a little harder to operate than other of my reverb plugins it's has amazing sound so it pays off to spend a little time getting to know it

    Nice!

    by Y. Bernagoult . 4 out of 5 stars

    Very good reverb plugin, as expected. Truly excellent for drums and percussions.
    I'm not a big fan when it is used as a long reverb.
    Very good reverb anyway.

    Great in a mix

    by P. Effamy . 4 out of 5 stars

    Prefer the EMT 140 for out-and-out quality, but this sits better in some mixes. Very different to the EMT and a good combination with the 140.

    224 is good, but limited.

    by . . 4 out of 5 stars

    Great reverb! However it only work well on certain sources as it is somewhat limited in editing parameters. I have the Lexicon PCM reverb bundle which I find myself using more. But for the money and quality, the 224 is a good buy.

    Best Yet!

    by T. Fitch . 4 out of 5 stars

    I have so far been unable to find a digital reverb that didn't sound digital. Then I demoed the 422.

    I have been fortunate enough to have used the 224 and 422 in the past. This is it. Again UAD gives us as close to the real deal as is possible. After a couple minor tweaks to fit the flavoe of each song, It just sits in the mix. It will be on every mix for a long time. Many thanks UAD!!

    Lush rush

    by M. Poncy . 4 out of 5 stars

    Great for filling the space between the listener and the back wall--when used in conjunction with a dark setting on 140, really provides definition without being brittle. If I only had one reverb, it would be the 140, but the Lexi (and the 250) are great compliments.

    warm and deep reverb

    by H. Zwarts . 4 out of 5 stars

    Its warm and deep and I really love the sound but you have to be careful. Don't use to much if you don't want your mixes to get to full (to warm).

    I don't know the original hardware reverb but I this is really a good reverb and sound different from many other reverbs out there. Its perfect for solo instruments and vocals.

    The price is high but you get a good plug in. The CPU is less so thats also a good thing.

    Really love this reverb.

    good job !

    Love it

    by D. Pichard . 4 out of 5 stars

    Really like this plugin... adds some nice warmth to tracks. Only complaint is that it's a memory/resource hog. I usually have to disable about 3 or 4 other UAD plugins in order to have enough juice to run this one. I am using the Solo Laptop card on a Dell Studio XPS with 6 gigs of ram. Add the end of the day, I really like this plugin and recomend it..

    The most important

    by P. Larose . 4 out of 5 stars

    It's kind of tuff to evaluate this reverb family as incredible is the original one.
    Actually, the space is quiet beautiful and never kill the specter of the original sound.
    There is really a big difference in front of any impulse response you could find.
    The texture of this reverb is warm and rich , I love it. Hope and the same for the other UA pluggs some free great preset updates to come.

    This plugin is a classic fantastic, but eats a bit too much DSP power.

    Thanks
