Perfect First Audio Interface!Valley girls may say "oh, mega." But, be careful. Because you'll be saying "Omega" too after you get this feature-packed audio interface into your studio and start recording with it. Tune in because this is important. You could spend a lot of dough on an interface that's not even as close to the level of coolness the Omega has going for it. You've got eight channels (two for microphones), all in one really convenient desktop-friendly USB interface. It'll work with your Mac. It'll work with your PC. And it's easy enough to use that your little brother or sister could get the hang of it, if you have one. That's all important, but here's what's really important: it sounds great.
The Lexicon Omega has the benefit of the word "Lexicon" before its name. That means this puppy was made by those legendary reverb gurus... you know, the ones who are practical audio Gods in terms of signal processing. And if you're going to trust your sound to someone, a proven name is a good way to go. Speaking of Lexicon, they included a sweet Pantheon Reverb plug-in that'll work with the included Cubase LE recording software. Not too shabby of a deal, right?
As far as other connections go, the Lexicon Omega even has two channels of digital I/O, so you can use your digital equipment if you have it. And you'll appreciate the handy front-panel guitar/instrument input with a handy headphone jack right next to it for listening in as you track and record.
So if you're in the market for your first audio interface. Or you're just wanting a portable guy to get the job done, without taking up a huge amount of space in a rack or something... you're going to be smiling ear to ear once you get the Lexicon Omega into your studio and into your workflow.
