Andrea Perry of Musical Duo Kaliyo Relies On Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle
March 28, 2013
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – For over 15 years Andrea Perry has had a varied musical career, she’s contributed the music for dozens of video games, TV shows, movies and more. She currently runs Andrea Perry Productions, which has released three solo albums (with a fourth in the making) and along with Sarah Sharp is one half of indie pop music duo Kaliyo, whose songs have been licensed worldwide for TV, commercials and Internet marketing videos. After using countless other reverb software programs Perry was looking for something new and ultimately discovered HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle.
“I was using other reverb software for a while but found myself looking for a change,” said Perry, “so I started reading reviews and doing research on various music and recording websites. “The Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle seemed to be highly respected by a lot of people doing a lot of different styles of music. I downloaded the demo version and fell in love with it right away when I heard it on Sarah’s voice. When the demo expired, the tracks I had used the PCM Native Reverb Bundle plug-ins on suddenly sounded very dull! It didn’t take long before I felt like I couldn’t function without the plug-ins.”
Although the PCM Native Reverb Bundle offers 7 exclusive Lexicon reverbs and effects and hundreds of studio presets, Perry finds herself drawn to the Vintage Plate and Hall settings the most. “I don’t know how to elaborate on this except to say that I just really like the way the Lexicon plug-ins improve the tracks, especially vocals, percussion and acoustic guitars. But when you come down to it, the plug-ins flatter pretty much everything.”
“The Lexicon reverbs add dimension and sound smooth and lush. They just make things sound better. The presets are also very helpful as starting points towards getting the sounds I want as I consider myself a non-technical person. If I’m working on a vocal, for example, I’ll grab a vintage plate reverb preset and then tweak that. If I had to start from nothing I’d be lost.”
“We are very lucky to work with artists of Andrea’s talent,” stated Noel Larson Market Manager for Recording, Tour and Portable PA at HARMAN Signal Processing. “Her ability to seamlessly cross from popular to commercial works with the same plug-ins shows the power of our reverbs. She exemplifies our brand motto, When you hear music, you hear Lexicon.”
Perry continues to collaborate with Sarah Sharp in Kaliyo and is currently working on her fourth solo album, “Four,” doing production work for 21-year-old singer/songwriter Ariel Abshire and composing for more commercials and videos. Through it all, Perry notes there’s one constant in her variegated musical career: “I now use the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle on every session.”
