Master Mixer, Producer and Engineer Duro Makes the Move to Lexicon’s PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle

Duro, CEO of Desert Storm Records (Def Jam), is a music mixer, producer and engineer based in New York and has worked with many of the top artists in urban and pop music including Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Will Smith, the Beastie Boys, T.I. and others. The five time Grammy winning master mixer, producer and engineer has relied on Lexicon® hardware reverb/effects processors from the beginning of his career – but lately, he’s made the switch to plug-ins, thanks to the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle.

“I’m extremely particular about the quality of the reverbs I use on my productions,? said Duro. “I’ve used Lexicon since day one, going all the way back to classic units like the 224 and 480L to the 960L, PCM70, PCM81 and PCM91. I used different Lexicon units for the distinctive reverb sounds and effects I liked from each unit.?
