Like the Omega and Lambda, the Lexicon Alpha USB Audio Interface is a complete portable desktop recording studio. It offers a 2x2x2 USB I/O mixer which is powered directly from the USB bus. You can be connected to the XLR inputs and the 1/4" balanced line inputs at all times while controlling input levels and monitoring from the front panel. The front panel also offers a Hi-Z instrument input and a 1/8" headphone amplifier output suitable for all headphone types. Alpha ships with Steinberg Cubase LE recording/editing software and Lexicon Pantheon VST reverb plug-in.
Cubase LE offers 48 tracks of tracking, supports up to 8 VST instruments, and is compatible with both VST system link and Rewire 2. The Lexicon Pantheon VST reverb plug-in offers 35 factory presets and 6 reverb types and lets you edit 16 parameters per reverb type.
The funny shape is ok I guess - would rather they released it as U-Rack mountable but it sits proudly on my desk..Handy playback / direct signal mix knob, good for trouble shooting signal chain problems...
Lovely great big volume knob. Slightly Awkward guitar and headphone inputs.. could be solved by putting them either on the back or the front. Regardless - excellent value for money. Also comes with Lexicon reverbs but I haven't used them... Looked too complicated to set up and I'm very happy with the Native Instruments 24 & 48 units...!
Sometimes I also got problems with the driver when i update my OS but Lexicon usually fix it with a driver update in a couple of weeks after a new Mac OS is released.
