Producer, musician and writer Mo Volans (pictured) is now the lead trainer at MacProVideo.com and AskVideo, and has produced training and promotional material for a number of major computer music platforms, including Ableton, Logic, Reason, Cubase, Maschine and BitWig. Volans says that he relies on the Lexicon PCM Total Bundle plug-in package for both his own recordings and in his training courses.
“I’ve been using Lexicon as long as I can remember,” he says. “I’ve been fortunate to work with almost every model of Lexicon hardware, from flagship products like the 480L in larger studios to my more recent use of the MX and PCM reverb and effects processors in smaller facilities and my own project studios. When I had the opportunity to try the PCM Total Bundle I didn’t hesitate.
“I’ve been using the PCM Total Bundle as my go-to reverb solution literally since the day it arrived. When it comes to demonstrating algorithmic reverbs this is just about as good as it gets for me. If I can call something that’s used in training videos a ‘textbook example’ of something, then the Lexicon is it.”
Volans recently completed what he calls an in-depth six-hour training course for MacProVideo.com on mixing and mastering electronic dance music in Logic Pro X. He says he used the PCM Total Bundle extensively throughout this course, and for recent online features for Future Music and AskAudio.
“I’ve worked in the studio with Lexicon gear for a long time,” Volans says. “Having used the hardware I can say without a doubt that this plug-in is the real deal. Lexicon manages to create stunning acoustic spaces that no other algorithmic processors seem to be able to touch. The richness of the reverb tails are legendary, and for good reason. I’ve found other processors that can do a good job, but Lexicon consistently nails the non-linear acoustic nature of real-world spaces.”
The Lexicon PCM Total Bundle offers reverbs such as Vintage Plate, Hall, Room, Concert Hall and other Lexicon reverbs, and effects such as Pitch Shift, Chorus, Dual Delay and Resonant Chords. It’s designed to work with popular DAWs including Pro Tools and Logic, as well as with other VST, Audio Unit or RTAS-compatible platforms and with Windows and Macintosh computers.
