Music Editor Stephen Lotwis Selects HARMAN's Lexicon PCM

Hollywood music editor Stephen Lotwis is using HARMAN's Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle as part of his editing and production processes on a day-to-day basis.

Mr Lotwis has been using Lexicon since 1984 and first started working with products like the PCM 60, PCM 70, 224XL, 480L, LXP-1 and LXP-5 when studying at the Berklee College of Music. After graduation, he performed as a professional musician, started his own production studio, produced independent records for Boston-area artists and taught music at Harvard University.
Speaking about the PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle, Mr Lotwis said: "I like the dense, rich texture of the Lexicon reverbs; they’re just so natural and realistic.
"In particular, the decay of the reverb tails is flawless, and you can adjust the length of the decay to be exactly what you need when you set the scene, from a short, almost gated clip to that beautiful, lush kind of reverb tail that seems to extend forever."
Mr Lotwis uses the PCM Native Reverb to give him not only the flavour of reverb to complement music, dialog or effects, but the ability to dial in and tweak any sonic parameter, save any setting and recall it for later use.
"In a fast-paced production environment where we have to constantly change cues and timings and sometimes have to make hundreds of revisions, the ability to recall any setting instantaneously is a major advantage compared to the way I had to work even a few years ago.
"If you want to hear how good the PCM Native Reverb sounds, just listen to one of my recent or not-so-recent film projects," he notes. "I've been using it for a few years now and wouldn’t think of doing a soundtrack without it."
It seems that filmmakers, directors and others would agree.
"Stephen's reputation precedes him as one of the leading feature film music editors in Hollywood. While his work has taken him from recording to film and east coast to west coast he has developed as a professional with Lexicon as a constant throughout his career," stated Jason Kunz, Market Manager, Portable PA and Recording & Broadcast for HARMAN Signal Processing.
