FireWire audio interface featuring dbx mic pre's and dynamics.

With a wealth of features—including dbx high-voltage, ultra-low noise mic preamps, Pantheon II reverbs, and a powerful software mixing board with dbx dynamics and hardware monitor reverb—the Lexicon I-ONIX FW810S is more than just an 8-in, 10-out FireWire audio interface. It's a pro recording studio contained in a single rack unit.

The high-voltage, ultra low noise dbx mic pre's on every channel provide optimal timbre and tonality on every track. And the newly updated Pantheon II plug-in provides smooth, lush Lexicon reverbs for creating ideal sonic spaces.

With built-in dbx Type IV conversion, your digital recordings will preserve their dynamic range even when levels get too high. They'll acquire that forgiving, oversaturated quality once only found on big analog recorders. Type IV conversion actually gives you more headroom, capturing subtle details in higher level signals instead of hard clipping them.

The Lexicon I•ONIX FW810S adds a powerful software mixer with integrated dbx dynamics (compressor, gate, limiter, EQ) to your digital audio workstation. The mixer's true-to-life interface design feels familiar from the second you start it, making it easy to adjust levels, route signals through 8 inputs and 10 outputs, as well as apply and preview reverbs and dynamics. Best of all, the I•ONIX FW810S does the processing, so you can mix and fine-tune your recordings in realtime with zero latency. You can even save and load snapshots of mixer settings. Save and load up to five monitor mixes—one for the main control mix, and up to four for individual band members—or assign the I•ONIX FW810S to start up with a snapshot.

The I•ONIX software suite includes the new Pantheon II reverb plug-in from Lexicon and Toontrack's EZ Drummer Lite. All of it works together seamlessly in the included Cubase LE 4.

      Virtually no tech support on this item from Lexicon. I feel like I'm the only one in the world who has purchased one.

      Similar to competition & includes extra features

      By Brian C---NCT

      Comments about Lexicon FW810S Firewire Audio Interface:

      I got a hold of an FW810S to test out for a few weeks. There is not much info at all on this interface so I was curious to see what it was made up of. I used it with Windows XP and Vista for about 3 weeks and was happy with the performance and stability of the ASIO drivers. Latency was low and performance was consistent. I was epsecially interested in the performance of the drivers because Lexicon hasn't been known to do very well in this area with their previous audio interfaces. I did not have time to test with Mac so no opinion there. When I opened the cover I found that it uses Cirrus codecs, three CS4272's and one CS42426. It also uses the TC Dice Jr ASIC. This handles all the digital audio/firewire I/O including I2S, I8S, ADAT, IEEE1394 etc. This is on par with the quality of other audio interfaces in this price. However it also includes additional Harman Pro "Audio DNA" processors that add dBx compressor & limiter on every channel as well as Lexicon reverb. This is a nice bonus and it works very well. The software mixer is really well designed and and makes it wasy to use. The preamps are mediocre. They are not particularly noisy but they are very typical and not especially musical or special in any way. Typical of what you would find in an audio interface in this price range or less or a less expensive hardware mixer.

      This thing ROCKS!

      By Rikk Beatty

      Comments about Lexicon FW810S Firewire Audio Interface:

      I got one for the band room so we could record rehersals and new song ideas plus backing tracks for me when I do clinics. This thing was VERY easy to setup and use and the sound quality was AMAZING! A scratch recording with 30 minutes of mixing ended up sounding as good as my last album I just released! WOW!!!!!
