OVERVIEW

Record and mix professionally on your computer.

With the Omega Desktop Recording Studio, Lexicon has taken a whole-system approach to desktop recording. Omega Studio is an integrated computer recording system that includes the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O mixer, Cubase LE, and Pantheon world-class Lexicon reverb plug-in. Omega Studio contains all of the components necessary to transform your computer into a professional 24-bit recording studio.

Whether you're a guitarist, keyboard player, vocalist, instrumentalist, or an audio engineer, Omega Studio provides all the I/O mixing, recording, and effects you need to make your next project sound like it came from a professional studio.

Omega Studio Hardware

Differentiating itself from standard computer I/O boxes that are typically based on a patchbay paradigm, the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O mixer is based on a mixer paradigm and includes input, output, and mixing functions that support a variety of tracking/monitoring applications while requiring no additional mixing hardware.

The Omega I/O mixer provides 8 inputs that are assignable in pairs to any of 4 simultaneous record channels featuring ultratransparent, high-resolution analog-to-digital converters to capture your performance with pristine 24-bit quality. 2 of the inputs feature extremely low-noise dbx mic-preamps with 48V phantom power and TRS insert points. 4 TRS active balanced line inputs accept up to +22dBu signals to allow interfacing to either unbalanced or professional high-output level-balanced equipment. Included is an S/PDIF input combined with an additional DAC for zero-latency, direct monitoring of the S/PDIF source to allow simultaneous tracking of analog and digital sources.

A high-impedance instrument input is conveniently accessible on the front panel. The Omega I/O mixer provides a peak indicator for each analog input as well as an assignable bar graph meter for signal level monitoring. By monitoring the signal at the A/D converters, you avoid the problems with software-only level monitoring that can miss clipping and ruin your track. The Omega I/O mixer also includes a fully opto-isolated MIDI input to ensure that there is no annoying ground loop hum or MIDI talk-through noise common with many I/O boxes and soundcards.

MIDI output has rock-solid synchronization to USB frame rate to support applications requiring critical sync.

Cubase LE

Your Omega system includes Steinberg's Cubase LE. From the first idea to complete compositions, Cubase is the virtual studio for all musicians and producers looking for a creative way to realize their projects. It integrates seamlessly with the Omega I/O Mixer to achieve an easy-to-use, 48-track complete recording solution that includes all of the modules that you need to track, edit, and mix your masterpiece.

Cubase LE supports up to 48 audio and 64 MIDI tracks with professional audio editing and processing features including: full automation of volume, pan, mute, and effects; MIDI score editor with advanced quantization and logical presets; up to 8 VST instruments; 2 insert and 4 effect sends per channel; and VST system link and ReWire 2 compatibility.

Lexicon Pantheon Reverb Plug-In

Designed entirely by Lexicon engineers, the Pantheon reverb plug-in offers 35 factory presets featuring 6 reverb types (hall, chamber, plate, room, ambience, and custom) controlled by an intuitive user interface with 16 editable parameters. The Lexicon name is synonymous with the world's best reverb. Pantheon continues this legacy by bringing that Lexicon sound to your projects.

I bought this item used off of the big auction site. Got the Omega and power supply...that was it. I downloaded the manual and the most current driver from Lexicons website, and I didn't need Cubase as I am using another program (Reaper) for tracking. I guess the only thing I don't have available to use is the Pantheon reverb as it is integral to Cubase. Oh well, I have used Cubase before and I don't find it intuitive or user friendly, so I don't miss it. I have the Omega set up on a 6 year old desktop computer that I upgraded to 2GB of RAM. It works flawlessly. I have only 3 tracks per project so far, but have experienced no latency issues and honestly, I don't expect to. I do have experience with LOTS of digital recording methods and devices and like other users have mentioned already, the poor reviews from people who can't seem to get the product set up or functioning properly probably have very little knowledge, experience or patience to get the job done. I have found the Omega to be a fantastic UI and I would highly recommend it. Misses: no on/off switch, and controls on the front and inputs on the back, so you constantly have to pick it up and "spin it around" to change whatever your plugging into it. Otherwise, good stuff.
No on/off switch.
No problems, sounds fantastic.
Can't be beat in this category, and I shopped around.

This records 4 high quality channels instead of the standard 2 for many in this class. If you get it working it will work well. I have bought several and modified every one.

-It has a design flaw. The amplifier transistors get hot and in most boxes the ribbon cable is touching them. The result is that heat damages the cable and the usb will disengage when it gets hot.

SOLUTION: I placed heatsinks on the three transistors. Drilled ventilation holes (maybe this was unessary). Positioned or secured the ribbon cable in a manner that it would not touch the transistors. And on at least a couple I have had to replace the ribbon cable that was already damaged (not as easy as it sounds). The result is that they work. I would buy them again, just because I know I can get them to work. (Disclaimer: This worked for me. Do at your own risk.) However should we have to do this to equipment we buy? That is why I cannot give it above a 2 star.

-Drivers have always been a pain, but I have gotten it working on all my window's machines.

-If you want to use the Cubase and reverb enclosed, don't expect it to work on Windows 7. I did get it working on one of my machines but it was impossible on another.

Not recommended for Windows 7

By Pat Tofield

Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

The Omega is an attractive unit compared to others at the same price range. I could have got a Focusrite or PreSonus at the same price but with much less features. This offered more channels, digital I/O, the very wonderful Pantheon reverb and nice monitoring features. *HOWEVER* the Lexicom is SUCH A PAIN with Windows 7. The drivers, although updated in 2011 and are supposed to support Win 7 64-bit, almost never function correctly with any piece of audio software. I use several including Cubase, Reason and a few others, but even with just Cubase (which comes bundled with the unit) I have to...

- uninstall the drivers- perform a factory re-set on the Omega- re-install the drivers- re-boot the pc- delete the Cubase preferences- Start and configure Cubase to use the Lexicon AISO drivers- keep my fingers crossed that all that works because even then it doesn't always.

And that's EVERY TIME I want to hook up the Omega to Cubase.

And don't think that this is just me playing around because I don't know what I'm doing....I DO know what I'm doing when it comes to sound equipment and, more importantly, the above instruction came from Lexicon support when I wrote to them about the problems I had with the drivers.

So, bottom-line...don't buy this if you plan on using it with Win 7 64-bit. Maybe other OS's fare better...
The features offered were the main reason I bought the Omega over others in the price range...8x4x2 channels digital I/O, good monitoring features and the Pantheon reverb.

Looked good on paper!!
The build quialiy seems pretty good - at least the external build quality...!
It was a good price for what it offered, however the problems with getting the thing to work make it useless, regardless of the price.

      Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

      Do the math first. If the math is too confusing, then listen to others. This item looks great. How nice to have something you just plug into a USB port and sail off into professional multi-track recordingville. Too good to be true? Ever wonder why most USB/firewire plug and go devices get so many complaints? Maybe, just maybe, serial data ports have a problem handling multiple high bit, high sampling rate data all at once? For about the same price I opted, after much research and confusion, to just get a small mixer, an inexpensive yet professional quality SOUND BOARD that came with a Cubase DAW and went off to the races. I soon replaced the Cubase APP with Samlitude. Nothing wrong with Cubase, it worked fine without a glitch. Just prefer the Samplitude, plus it is an upgrade. To sum this all up; I paid $100 for the card and DAW (new), $50 for the 1202 board and have a four mic inputs a whole bunch of line ins and outs and do full four channel duplex recording, monitor the whole mess via headphones and/or speakers. I don't have to worry about latency delays, glitches that occur from a serial data port trying to keep up. I use a sampling rate of 44.1 khz per channel. I'm only posting this to give other musicians out there another option that I think is a better path, less headache and frustration, simpler, more versatile and an end result that is much more professional. Direct ASIO inputs and outputs will produce a much higher quality sound than a serial data port with less problems. Serial data ports are great for MIDI but not so good for sound. I hope this helps some of you.

          The software and drivers crash my NEW computer, EVERY TIME. Forcing me to do a System restore. The drivers cause my computer to not boot again. I can unplug the unit and reboot, then if i plug it in it blue screens.

          The unit ONLY works as plug n play, and ONLY for MIC 1 & 2. All other lines in are worthless in this capacity.

          I don't like Cubase and don't want it, there are no other options with the instructions.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          Lexicon made a great reverb (sadly, now obsolete for studio use with the advent of convolution reverb), but had no business trying to make i/o's. I had a Lambda that had really strange intermittent latency issues, so I returned it. I have an Omega (and several other cards) and have yet to get the Omega to work. I should have taken it back, but I assumed that I would eventually get it going. I do not lack experience. I've installed many soundcards in my own studio, those of friends, and for hire in professional, money-making studios. Trust me, if I can't get it to work, you can't either. The price-point tells it all. So many features for [$] would be a bargain if more of them installed properly and didn't have noise problems. Don't get me wrong, many soundcards have quirks that you have to learn to get them to run (turn the computer on first - or last, wait to turn on the midi rack, etc.), but my Lexicon cards have been non-starters. I have never used one in a session, and in fact have never even seen one anywhere functioning properly. Just for kicks I got the Omega out of the gear cabinet and tried to install it on my new Asus laptop (win 7). I downloaded the new driver, blah, blah, and of course it had a humming noise and wouldn't install. Apparently some of them somewhere work, so if you're hooked by the price/features, knock yourself out, but keep the receipt and return it the same day if it doesn't install or has noise or odd latency issues. Doing this may help to get them off the market.

          After 2 years of debating, I got my Omega. Laid drum tracks, sounded okay. So then I did bass track. EXTREME latency. Can only adjust buffer size from Cubase! I didnt plan on installing Cubase at all, so im screwed. My 7 year old Tascam US122 was plug and play no latency issues at all. Sent Omega back and got E-mu tracker Pre. LOVE it!

          DO NOT BUY (If you run latest Mac OS - Lion)

          By Robert Mutch

          from San Diego

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          This unit will not set up in any way on newer Macs, other than as 2x2 DEMO. This will get you a cute little BEEP in your ear every 30 seconds, if your lucky.

          3 emails to Lexicon Tech Support (including checking "copy me" on email) yeilded no response; nuthin', zip, nada; not even the blind copy, or an auto response. OK, so I email the Harmon Group, Lexicon's mother ship. Similarly, nothing.Can't
          Can't judge features, 'cause I've never been able to get the thing to do what it's supposed to. Scoured the web, Lexicon's site, and pleeded with the company for assistance. Absolutely nothing.

          If you plan to use this with a Mac - ever - STOP, back away, and don't look back.
          Pops, clipping, USB chatter. Grrrrreat!

          Cheaply made. Has 4 pieces of slag metal screwed to the bottom (both inside and outside) just to feel substantial. Inside, a mess of glue, bent components, and badly routed cables.
          NRBQ put it this way: "Ain't No Free". Save your pennies,wait a while, and buy something that isn't junk; from a company that is in the business of working with musician's; not simply wringing the lat few dollars from formerly awesome company's name. Lexicon had awesome products, back in the 80's; but just like HP, greed and short-sightedness have tarnished their hard-earned reputation.

          This unit has served me well, but in my honest opinion, I think this is kinda outdated now. The only issue I've had is that the output knob stated to crackle after a few months of usage. Other than that, this has not let me down. I have used this unit for about one and a half years. I'm not very happy with the build quality. My advice is that you should keep checking out other units as well.

          I have had this little guy for about seven years now and I'm still using it. I will admit that it takes a little time to figure it out, but that is to be expected. Be sure and check the website for the most recent drivers and updates. I think this is why some people are having issues with these. You don't have to be a computer geek, but you might need one to install and set it up for you the first time.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          Bought this because of the features mostly, and to be honest I had some doubts that it would work well.I use it with a white Mac Book late 2009 and it works smoothly.I only rated it 4.5 because when I change the master volume it does a little noise and the balance between left and right speakers seem to loose equality, but that will be solved when I get the Mackie Big Knob and I wont use the master volume that often on the Omega.I like the pres gain and clarity, and the input level control.Bought it a year ago and it still works perfectly.Before this one I bought the Lambda and returned one day later, it was very unstable, but I guess it was because of the machine I was testing it on (Powerbook G4).Maybe all these bad reviews has something to do with the drivers for PC. Using it with Core Audio on the Mac, no problems at all.I never tried it on a PC though.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          This was the first audio device I bought. On the surface, it has some nice features, but the critical flaws are:1.Occasionally disconnects from the pc, even in the middle of a session, and wouldn't respond until a unit restart, which makes it impossible to work with.2. A HUGH delay - wouldn't work in less than 25ms, and most of the time requires more than that.3. Causes some kind of unexplainable midi delay, but a reversed one, meaning that the notes are "pulled-back" a few ms on the timeline.4. No headphone volume level, so monitors must be manually turned on/off on every new track recording...5. Very noisy output knob, meaning that every turn of the knob causes a lot of static noise.There are some other falws that I probably forgot to mention, but you get the picture - it's an old, buggy and very frustrating device. Do yourself a favor and look for something else.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          This is my 2nd Omega. My first one worked well for about a year, then began buzzing, then I lost my mic input and my headphone output. I purchased another Omega - but it wouldn't connect to my computer (via USB). I would use my first Omega to connect to my computer, then quickly switch to the new Omega to record. However, in about 6 months, my new Omega just died won't do anything. The Lecixon Service office in USA is worthless, I would have to pay to have my unit shipped there for warranty work. Buy from another company.

          A big step forward for Lexicon products

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          The Omega is a big step forward from Lexicon's older Core2 and the included software is essentially just a renamed version of Cakewalk's Music Creator but unfortunately it's missing Music Creator's compression plugins which are invaluable. If those had been included, i probably would have given the Omega 9's across the board. Otherwise it's an 8.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          I have put in countless hours trying to get this piece of junk to work. The problem is the software / drivers are buggy. The interface seems to work fine, and it has great features for the money, but the drivers are erratic and because of that a lot of features do not work, period. Tech support from Lexicon SUCKS. They don't answer the phone or return calls or e-mails at all. Mine came with a very old version of CUBASE LE4 (version 2). Steinberg's web site provides an updated version 4.1.2 but it doesn't work with Windows XP. Lexicons updated driver set doesn't even load. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT until they provide new software with it. I have spent thousands of dollars with Musicians Friend and always been happy, but for the first time I'm going to ask for my money back on this turkey.

          not designed well

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          This product ahs great features, but it is not designed to work for very long. It took several hours and several calls to tech support to install, and then after about 5 hours of 3 minutes single track recording it no longer sent audio to the computer. I am very dissappointed with the durability of the instllation, it needed more play testing before release. If you can keep it working, it works well and sounds good.

          Comments about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio:

          I purchased this over a year ago, have tried to get it running on several different machines with no luck. The one time that I was able to get it loaded, the USB connection was dropped and I have never been able to get it running again. It's hard to believe that a company that produced the "Pantheon" reverb would put their name on this. Unless you have some extra cash and are looking to make a donation to Mf/GC and Lexicon, save your money and buy something else, anything else.
