Lexicon Debuts Lambda Desktop Recording Solution

New from Lexicon Pro is a new USB desktop recording solution, the Lambda Desktop Recording Studio. The system includes everything needed for portable and professional recordings, including the Lambda Studio USB I/O mixer, Steinberg''s Cubase LE multi-track PC and Mac OS X recording software as well as the Lexicon Pantheon reverb VST plug-in.

The original Lexicon Pro Omega Studio integrated computer recording system includes the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O mixer with a VST version of the world-class Pantheon Lexicon reverb plug-in, coupled with Steinberg's cross-platform Cubase LE featuring 48-track audio / 64 MIDI tracks, up to eight VST instruments, two insert/four aux sends per channel and ASIO drivers.

Now joining the Omega Studio is the new Lexicon Lambda Desktop Recording Studio, a bus-powered USB audio I/O Mixer and MIDI interface that comes as a complete recording solution with Cubase LE and Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in. Based on the Omega Studio, the Lambda Studio features two XLR microphone inputs designed by dbx, with TRS inserts and switchable +48V phantom power. Rounding out the full complement of connectivity on the Lambda are two TRS balanced 1/4" line inputs, two TRS balanced line outputs, a 1/8" front-panel mounted high-power headphone output jack, a front-panel ultra-high-impedance instrument input, and MIDI input and output.

Conveniently powered directly from the USB bus, the Lambda Studio can stream four channels of 44.1 or 48 kHz audio at either 16- or 24-bit resolution to Mac or PC computers. Users can record two tracks at once from up to four input sources, as well as recording MIDI. The microphone and line inputs have individual level controls and peak meters, and are summed at the analog-to-digital bus. Mono / stereo monitoring is provided, as is Zero-latency Direct / Playback Monitoring, allowing for delay-free overdubs. A 2-channel, 4-segment LED bargraph meter indicates input level, and phantom power and USB LED indicators provide status information.

The Lambda Studio and Omega Studio hardware can be used with almost any recording and sequencing software the user prefers.

Rounding out the Lambda Studio package, the Pantheon VST reverb plug-in offers a wealth of factory programs drawing from the respected Lexicon heritage, controlled by an intuitive user interface with editable parameters.
