DJ Swivel On The Lexicon® PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle: “The Lexicon PCM suite is the only plug-in reverb I can put up against a $20,000 hardware reverb – and it’ll hold its own.?

DJ Swivel is a mixer, engineer, and producer who has worked with hip-hop, R&B and pop artists including Beyonce, Fabolous, Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Diddy, Britney Spears, Kanye West and others. He is also co-founder/co-owner of Silverbridge Media, a music publishing company for film and TV music.

DJ Swivel uses the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle and prizes it for its sound quality and flexibility. “I’ve worked with the Lexicon 960L hardware reverb (no longer available) for several years, and was never able to find a plug-in reverb that I warmed up to. They always added a certain amount of brittleness to a vocal that I didn’t care for,? Swivel said. “It wasn’t until I listened to the PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle that I felt confident in switching over to plug-in versions.?

Gert Sanner Tours Deep Purple on Soundcraft Vi1™

As Deep Purple continue their tour through Germany and France, their long-serving FOH engineer Gert Sanner has taken the opportunity to transfer his show mix from his trusty Soundcraft Vi6 digital console to the smaller footprint of the new Vi1.

An early adopter of the Vi6 (since when he has regularly provided technical support to sales and rental company, SSE Group), Sanner was keen to move his show files to the Vi1 and prove the process in a real-world environment.

“The purpose was to create show files that would work on any Vi console,? he stated, with the end goal of purchasing a Vi1 for the band. Fortunately, the show transfer has proved 100% successful.

The features that originally persuaded Sanner to adopt this route were not only the Vi1’s compact footprint but the analogue inputs on the rear of the console. “This feature is great more
