The Lexicon Omega USB audio interface certainly doesn't disappoint on the I/O front. For an awesome value, you get the right kind of I/O for nearly all basic home studio and mobile recording needs. With two microphone preamplifiers, you can effortlessly record you and a friend playing guitar - or record you playing guitar as you sing. There are also two stereo pairs of line inputs, which can accommodate your keyboard or synthesizer. And, on the front panel, there's a hi-Z instrument input, so you can directly plug in your guitar or bass, then use your favorite amplifier and effects modeling software to craft your tone. It's a very versatile audio interface!
S/PDIF I/O adds even more versatility
On top of its assault of traditional I/O, including microphone preamplifiers, line inputs, an instrument input, and two inserts, the Lexicon Omega provides S/PDIF I/O - a handy feature that's normally found only on more expensive interfaces. With it, you can grow into a S/PDIF-output-equipped tube preamplifier, to give your voice or guitar recordings that classic tube warmth - without having to purchase an entirely new audio interface. S/PDIF is also just a handy way to bring in two different channels of I/O, without unplugging your existing cable configurations. Across all of the Lexicon Omega's I/O, you can choose four sources to record at one time - and a handy selector switch system on the front panel makes it easy to quickly switch which channels you're using.
Ruggedly built and extremely portable
The Lexicon Omega is designed for the musician on the go - although, it's just as perfect if you want to set it up on desktop, plug in your cables, and leave it there. But, it's nice to know that you can easily pair it with your laptop and bring it to a jam session with a friend, to capture everything in high-quality detail - or just be ready to record in a genius riff, when inspiration strikes. Whether you're toting the Omega from your dorm room to a friend's down the hall, bringing it to your band's next rehearsal, hauling it out on a month-long tour, or just taking it to the garage for a jam and then back to your room - the Omega is built with convenience and portability in mind.
Includes Cubase LE recording software and the Lexicon Pantheon Reverb plug-in
Not only do you get a great assortment of inputs and outputs onboard the Lexicon Omega, but you also get included software - that way, you can open up the box and immediately start making music. To start, you get Cubase LE recording software - a great Mac/PC production workstation, which provides a ton of audio editing and sequencing tools. Then, bundled FREE with the Omega is Lexicon's famous Pantheon Reverb plug-in. This high-quality plug-in offers 35 factory presets, featuring six reverb types (hall, chamber, plate, room, ambience, and custom) controlled by an intuitive user interface with 16 editable parameters. As the Lexicon name is virtually synonymous with their renowned reverb algorithms, you know this reverb plug-in sounds great.
