Mauricio Zottarelli Finds HARMAN’s Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In Indispensable

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Brazilian-born, New York City-based drummer/composer Mauricio Zottarelli has been on the forefront of the jazz, Latin and Brazilian music scenes for years, and has worked with dozens of artists including Hiromi, Dig Trio, Eliane Elias, Marc Johnson, Keiko Matsui, Prasanna, Chuck Loeb, Carmen Souza and many more. In 2009 he released his critically acclaimed solo record “7 Lives” featuring his own compositions. His latest release is called MOZIK, a collaboration with pianist Gilson Schachnik, and he maintains a busy recording and performing schedule with more than 200 gigs a year.

“The Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In is an invaluable tool in my home studio and other places where I record,” said Zottarelli “The first time I heard it, I was instantly hooked. I do a lot of studio and session work and had heard many sessions being recorded with the LXP, and it always sounded fantastic. The transparency, clarity and fullness of the reverbs are just phenomenal. I decided I needed it for my home studio.”

“The LXP’s audio quality makes it sound as if I’m doing my projects in a major studio. I feel that the LXP is indispensible for independent artists and producers and project studio owners who need to match the tough competition and high sonic standards of today. I have been using the plug in consistently on everything I do, from small percussion overdubs to bigger productions, full drum tracks and mixes.”

Zottarelli finds the LXP Native Reverb quick and easy to use. “The LXP’s four reverbs – Plate, Chamber, Hall and Room – have tons of presets, yet you can get to them with one click. You can also tweak the quality, duration and character of the reverbs to be exactly the way you want them. There’s no time wasted fumbling around looking for the right option or sound – it’s all right there.”

“Since I got the Lexicon LXP, it’s on everything I do at my home studio,” Zottarelli continued. “I have used it on percussion overdubs, with hand percussion, shakers, cajon and many other instruments. Some of the plate reverb presets sound absolutely incredible with these kinds of instruments. The LXP is also great for ‘rounding up’ and filling out a mix.”

“When it comes to outside studios, a lot of the time I have to go in, record, and leave – but sometimes I get a chance to work on drum tracks later at home. Then I use the LXP to get more ‘color’ and fullness on the snare and toms and on the overall mix.”

“From day to day I am involved in playing on a lot of different projects, rehearsing, touring, composing and being my own manager and agent. When I’m in the studio I need tools that can deliver quickly, but with no compromise in quality. Even on smaller scale productions like demos, rough mixes and pre-productions, the Lexicon LXP makes such a big difference. Its ability to deliver high-quality results without a hassle gives me more time and freedom to create and to pay more attention to other aspects of the music and production.”

“Nowadays, on my own productions, demos and home recordings, the Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In is always there,” Zottarelli concluded.

The Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle is designed to work with popular DAWs like Pro Tools and Logic, as well as with any other VST®, Audio Unit™ or RTAS®-compatible host. PC- and Macintosh®-compatible, it offers four of Lexicon’s most renowned algorithms – Chamber, Hall, Plate and Room – plus 220 finely crafted studio presets. Its intuitive user interface provides easy access to key parameters, with a graphical real-time full-color display.
