AMS® RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb
Ein seltener, komplett maßgeschneiderter Hall wie kein zweiter - nach 30 Jahren wieder da.
Das AMS RMX16 war der weltweit erste Mikroprozessor-gesteuerte Digitalhall mit voller Bandbreite. Auf Hunderten, wenn nicht sogar auf Tausenden bahnbrechender Aufnahmen seit den 1980ern zu hören, findet man das RMX16 auch heute noch in fast jedem großen Tonstudio auf der ganzen Welt.
Die einzigartigen, satten Hallprogramme des RMX16 sind unmittelbar wiedererkennbar – von U2 und Peter Gabriel über Radiohead bis hin zu Rihanna. Von AMS Neve entwickelt und exklusiv für UAD Hardware und Apollo Interfaces erhältlich, fängt das neue AMS RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb Plug-In nicht nur die Klänge der Originalhardware ein, sondern fügt neun seltene, angepasste Programme hinzu, mit denen die Klangoptionen des ursprünglichen UAD AMS RMX16 Plug-Ins verdoppelt werden.
Jetzt Kannst Du:
Mit dem einzigen authentischen RMX16 Digital Reverb Plug-In aufnehmen und mixen, entwickelt vom Designer der Original-Hardware, Mark Crabtree, bei AMS Neve
Die exakten, legendären Hall- und Delay-Algorithmen eines extrem seltenen, maßangefertigten RMX16 im Mix verwenden
Klassische Ambience, Nonlinear, Room, Hall oder Plate Reverbs sowie einzigartige Echo-, Chorus- und Reverse-Effekte hinzufügen
Klänge mit einer erweiterten Palette seltener Programme wie Nonlin 1 dieses geschichtsträchtigen Rack-Gerätes formen
Mit exklusive Plug-In-Funktionen wie Dry/Wet Mix, Wet Solo und Editieren von Steuerwerten durch direktes Eintippen arbeiten
Neue Presets berühmter RMX16-Power-User wie Steve Levine, Ross Hogarth, David Isaac und anderer erhalten
Die einzige authentische AMS RMX16 Emulation überhaupt
Für die Entwicklung der UAD Plug-In-Version dieses außergewöhnlichen Prozessors holte Mark Crabtree von AMS Neve seine originalen Schaltpläne und umfangreichen Notizen aus dem Archiv hervor. Die Umsetzung war ein arbeitsreicher Prozess, der mehr als zwei Jahre dauerte, aber der Aufwand hat sich gelohnt. Das Ergebnis ist ein UAD Plug-In, das die exakten Anweisungen der ursprünglichen Algorithmen bis ins letzte Detail enthält. Dadurch werden die legendären Hall-Sounds in Deiner DAW wieder zum Leben erweckt.
Neue maßgeschneiderte Programme
Falls du in den 1980er-Jahren einer der Glücklichen warst, der AMS Neve´s nachrüstbares Barcode-Lesesystem hatte, konntest du neun zusätzliche Programme in Deinen RMX16 nachladen, darunter 810 ms Delay, hellere Räume und Variationen der legendären RMX16 Nonlin, Reverse und Plate Reverbs. Das neue AMS RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb Plug-In bietet dir all diese extrem seltenen Programme eines komplett maßangefertigten Gerätes.
Der ursprüngliche RMX16 wurde nach Gehör gestimmt und nachjustiert, um einen möglichst breiten „Sweetspot“ an Einstellungen zu ermöglichen – oder anders ausgedrückt, wurde er dazu entwickelt, eher musikalisch als mathematisch zu klingen (Peter Gabriel besaß einen Prototyp und lieferte dazu viele Notizen). Das RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb Plug-In emuliert die einfachen Bedienungselemente des Originals originalgetreu — das bedeutet, Menüs zum Navigieren entfallen.
Ein legendärer Zweiter Akt
Das RMX16 Expanded Digital Reverb Plug-In stellt ein leistungsstarkes Update dieses unvergleichlichen Studio-Werkzeuges dar, unabhängig davon, ob Du Lead-Vocals den letzten Schliff verpasst, einen Drum-Bus umwandelst oder über ein Apollo Interface Gitarren mit Shoegaze-Ambience aufnimmst.
“It’s great to see that the RMX16, once only found in the top studios, is finally available to all, reborn in the UAD platform.”
– Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Soul Asylum, Reggie Watts)
“The AMS RMX16 plug-in raises the bar of vintage equipment reproductions in software. It has a permanent home in my virtual effects arsenal.”
– Richard Chycki (Rush, Aerosmith, Dream Theater)
“The UAD AMS RMX16 is one of the most detailed plug-ins I have ever used. The response and tonal quality is incredible. If you want that classic 80s reverb in your mixes get it now!”
– Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead, Charlotte Gainsbourg)
“I’ve been using the AMS RMX16 since the mid 80s. It’s indispensable to nearly every project I have worked on. Having the plug-in on the UAD platform gives me the same sound without compromise.”
– Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton)
“The AMS RMX16 plug-in has all of the musicality, detail, and elegance of the original unit. It provides endlessly superior options to your search for that sound.”
– Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush)
“I've used the AMS RMX16 on every record I've made since the early 80s. I doubted if a plug-in could truly capture all the nuances of my very favorite digital reverb. I'm blown away with the result.”
– Ross Hogarth (Van Halen, Ziggy Marley, Motley Crue)
“Anything that was used to make Thriller, and used by Quincy Jones and Bruce Swedien, is a no-brainer in my book. Now the RMX16 is back and better than ever as a UAD plug-in. Outstanding.”
– David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Luther Vandross, Eric Clapton)
“During the 80s the AMS RMX16 was the go-to reverb for many record producers, including myself. Now with the UAD plug-in, you will be creating your own classic reverbs in seconds.”
– Steve Levine (Culture Club, Beach Boys, Ziggy Marley)

This reverb sounds great, is super versatile and just has "that" musical sound and character. I love to use this thing on drum machines from the era in particular and I've found great uses for the Echo and Plate algos in addition to the famed Ambience and Nonlin algos.
I agree that it needs a touch of EQ to darken it up a little but aside from that it's a thing of beauty and saved me over $2000 that I was about to spend on a hardware unit!

Go for it !
This reverb sounds absolutely fantastic ! Although most people only ever swear by its "ambience" and "non-linear" modes, History of music provides us with multiples instances of how all of the other modes were put to a good use (and particularly with the new trends for 80's music revivalism - think Ariel Pink, John Maus & Washed-Out). One of my favorite mode : the Plate mode, which has a very distinct and colorful feeling, and a very musical ringing if you play around with the decay time. All in all : this reverb sounds so good you'll probably find yourself soaking most of your tracks with it ! Go for it !
I mix on a real one of these all the time and this emulation is fantastic. I gave it 4 stars because the hardware unit is a bit darker, but to be honest, the emulation with an EQ sounds pretty much identical. It does that RX16 thing, so you should know what that is before you buy it. Good job on this one UA..
I would put 5 stars if those two things were present:
The possibility to load the different firmware version of the presets of the reverb (some machine don't have the exact same algorithm)
The emulation of the AD/DA audio path which is really important for me. Some people may find that not so important, but I love the noise characteristic of the orignal machine.
The possibility to turn that feature on and off for those who don't want the sound of the AD/DA.
Apart from that this is perfect, I love this reverb and couldn't live without it now.
Some things just have it
The interface is nostalgically not-so-intuitive and this plugin is a bit of a CPU hog but it's just so lush and full of character that the minuses are well outweighed by the pluses.
Reliving my youth
This was the first "wow" processor I experienced as a young pianist in the studio in the 80s. I've owned an original unit with its noisy fan & background noise also.
True it's not for everything, but for the dreamy verb factor it is a gem. Also the ambience algorithm is superb on drums.
Having multiple reliable instances makes it better than owning the hardware.
The emulation is superb & although the GUI may not be everyone's cup of tea it again reflects the original giving the same readout of genuine presets so suits me perfectly.
Why four stars & not ten? Purely because it's a hungry beast on DSP but if that's the price of having modern Daw access to one of the most iconic reverbs I'm happy to pay it!
Dense, beautiful, musical, clean, versatile, dozens of useful presets, stereo wide, natural! Different but as good as the L224, can not tell which is better. Just different. But it is my favorite now!
Wow, what a sound!
Because I already had all the other UAD-reverbs in my account, I thought "oh well, just another verb, I already have enough". I thought wrong.
The AMS Verb is in two words "instant character".
Whether you want ultra-wide slapbacks or dark alley vintage-ness, it's all there. And it sounds extremely good.
Together with the Lexicon-emulation, these two are my favorite reverbs to go to.
One minor comment is the GUI. I understand that this is an identical remake of the original hardware-unit, but I'm using this plugin with my mouse, not with real buttons. Therefore, a more user-friendly GUI would be nice for guys like me, who rather use a slider with the mouse instead of clicking on nudge-buttons.
Almost as good as the real thing
I've been looking for a decent-sounding reverb plug-in for 10 years and have tried most of the popular plug-ins, but the AMS RMX 16 is the first a good-sounding and versatile reverb that I've heard.
There seems to be a bug in one of the delay programs that puts a bit of unwanted reverb on the left channel, but aside from that, I'm very pleased with it.
Simply put; if you can only have one reverb, this is the one to get.
Worth the long wait
I have been wanting to own an AMS RMX16 for quite some time now, but the cost and fragility of these old units kept me away. So I was really hoping to get hold dog a plugin version and so when this was released I knew I had to own it.
All of my favourite records have RMX16 all over them, so it was with great expectations that I fired up my first mix, replaced the reverb with the RMX16 and listened.
Now I have never owned the real deal so can not comment on how close it is to the real unit, but what I can say is that the reverbs this plugin provides are excellent and sit in a mix extremely well.
The Ambience reverb is just perfect for vocals and guitars, it gives a nice space around the instrument or vocal with out drowning it. Recommen
Best of The best!
i couldnt believe in my ears when i firstly heard it and test the demo.
it changed the sound of my mixes !
John Jeff Touch
Very close to the real deal
This is a very good plugin.
It may sound silly to some, but what i miss is the noise part of the original hardware.
i wish they would have modeled the AD/DA circuits, cause this part really sounds amazing.
I also wish they would have include all the modes from the AMS, as in the update you can get from the company in LA who fixes those. (i think it is 6 additional mode).
I compared some recording of the effects i have using the same modes and sometimes it doesn't really sound as huge (especially with reverse and non lin mode) but still I'm really happy UA and AMS-Neve did it.
I demoed it for two weeks and two days ago i started a session and i realized i was missing it and went straight to the cart! five stars if they'll add the AD/DA noise
One Of My Favorites
This has been one of my favorite reverbs since the 1980's. It was my "go to" unit in almost every mix I did that called for reverb. I did a lot of R&B mixes and I used it almost exclusively on ballads. I was waiting on UA to come out with this guy for quite some time now and I wasn't disappointed. It gives you that lush AMS sound and they really captured the factory presets.
I have a lot of UA Plugins and I said that I wasn't going to buy one more until they brought this one out, and I picked it up the day it was released!
Now I'd like to see a DBX-165, a Lexicon PCM-42, or an AMS Delay and I'll scoop those right up too!!!
It's been years since I've Used RMX16.... and I must say that non lin and ambiance are my all time favorite classic on it....
But having gone Live, mixing FOH, taking the RMX16 on the road was like killing it....
Now, Thanks to AMS NEVE and UAUDIO, I can take it wherever I have to mix, and have Multiple instances of it... what a luxury.... and top of the tops: no noise... at all....
Long live AMS RMX16, long live Apollo 8 !!!!!!
Better than my AMS Hardware unit
I have the original AMS RMX16 and the only difference is my old unit has an often unacceptable noise floor for ballads and quiet material.
Its a spot on port over to the computer world.
This plug in will change your mixes dramatically for the better, specially on drums.
Fabulous AMS RMX 16
In the 80's when this was first released, it instantly became my first-choice reverb device. It was the original "Fairy Dust". The Ambiance programme became a classic reverb for it's musicality, character and overall richness. Increasingly, it's become harder to source a decent, fully-working hardware version from hire companies. With the arrival of this superb re-incarnation from the original coding of Mark Crabtree, life will have come full circle. The Apollo version is identical, and still has the identifiable character and life, without the noise. All the original features are lovingly re-created, all the pre-sets, including another classic, the Non-Lin. Go on, give your mixes some magic, it really is very special.
Holy pepperpots Batman
I rarely review. But this reverb is just fantastic!! I had to say something. Everyone appears to be blown away by its use on drums, vocals and maybe some nostalgic effects. I've found that it can give a blissful, blurring glow on sustained strings with the non-linear program, and a Rhodes sounds just delicious with the Dark Plate preset. It truly does respond musically when you want it to. Personally I prefer not to hear the obviously electronic artefacts on a transient's tail, but on sustained material the glow it gives I just LOVE!
