Discussions on sound production outside the synthesizer such as mixing, processing, recording, editing and mastering.
Anyone have any info specifically about reverb units italo disco producers were using in the mid 80s?
Also hmu w/ quality studio pics from Milan / Rimini of that era

Silent Circle's album (from 1986) used the "Lexicon 480L".
Which particular Italo Disco albums and songs did you have in mind?

You can probably refer to Paolo Di Nicolantonio's (SynthMania) Italo Disco
and Quick Tips
series on youtube. He displays a fair amount of authentic gear for the genre there.
I don't like the drums, but the drums like me!

Anyone wanting the sound of the 480L who records to a DAW would be advised to check out Valhalla Vintage Verb. Don't be put off by the fact the UI isn't a 3D rendering of some vintage hardware, this thing sounds amazing. And only $50 with a demo version so you can try before you buy, what's not to love? http://www.valhalladsp.com/valhallavintageverb

Yeah, there's some good new Native Instruments versions of those old Lexicons too.
