HARMAN Inspires Jazz Artist

News Image
In just a few short years jazz pianist, multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonathan Fritzén has vaulted to the top of the smooth jazz charts.
His latest release, Magical, has reached Number One on every major smooth jazz airplay chart.
At turns easy-grooving, romantic, vibrant and always melodic, Fritzén’s music has captured the imagination of listeners worldwide. One of the most effective musical colors in Fritzén’s palette is the HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Total Bundle, which includes 14 hallmark Lexicon Vintage Plate, Room, Concert Hall and other reverbs, and effects that run the gamut from Pitch Shift, Chorus and Dual Delay to unique sounds like Resonant Chords, which allows multiple delay voices to resonate on specific notes.
"I first became interested in Lexicon for a very important reason – the sound! As countless of my favorite records had Lexicon products as part of their sound, I wanted to find a way to incorporate them into my own recordings," Fritzén said. "When the PCM Total Bundle became available it looked like the answer to my needs and I had to try it out."
Fritzén finds that the Lexicon plug-ins offer musical capabilities available nowhere else. "They sound incredible – actually, I would say that these are the best-sounding reverb and delay plug-ins I’ve either used or heard, without competition. But more importantly, I also really like how creative I've been feeling in using them.
"The flexibility and functions that the PCM Total Bundle provide inspire my artistic directions. The various plug-ins really feel like instruments in themselves, compared to other plug-ins that just feel like ‘plug-ins’ and don’t have the musical character that I prize in Lexicon."
“In fact, in my experience the Lexicon reverbs and effects are inspirational in themselves," Fritzén concluded. "This is something very rare when it comes to plug-ins."
"We are very excited to be working with a musician of Jonathon’s caliber and to be an integral part of his sound," added Noel Larson, Market Manager, Portable PA, Tour and Recording at HARMAN Signal Processing.
The Lexicon PCM Total 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 platform. Compatible with Windows® Vista, XP and 7 and Macintosh® computers, it offers 14 unique Lexicon reverbs and effects, and hundreds of finely crafted studio presets. Its intuitive user interface provides control of key parameters with a graphical real-time full-color display and flexible sonic customization capabilities.
