A Great-sounding Computer Recording System!

The Lexicon Lambda USB audio/MIDI interface isn't just a fantastic-sounding, easy-to-use recording tool for your desktop studio; it's a complete recording solution! The Lambda bus-powered USB audio I/O mixer and MIDI interface includes a very desktop-friendly design that puts controls where you need them. This unit gives you onboard phantom power, XLR inputs, and balanced and unbalanced ins, while its small footprint is ideal for crowded work environments. You also get Cubase LE audio production software and the incredible Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in to round out this "studio in a box" — the Lexicon Lambda!

  • USB connection allows streaming four channels at 24-bit
  • Individual mic and line level controls and peak meters

Hardware interface with XLR mic inputs, instrument input, and more
Based on the Omega Studio, the Lambda Studio features two XLR microphone inputs designed by dbx, with TRS inserts and switchable 48-volt 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.

USB connection allows streaming four channels at 24-bit
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. You can record two tracks at once from up to four input sources on the Lambda Studio, as well as recording MIDI.

Individual mic and line level controls and peak meters
The Lambda Studio's 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. The Lambda Studio's 2-channel, 4-segment LED bargraph meter indicates input level, and phantom power and USB LED indicators provide status information.

Includes Cubase LE
Cubase LE is music production software based on award-winning Cubase SX technology featuring 48 audio tracks, VST plug-ins and full VSTi support. Cubase LE combines powerful audio and MIDI recording features with professional editing and effects. Cubase LE and all included plug-ins are compatible with both Mac and PC systems. Cubase LE is the perfect entry into professional recording software giving you the ability to produce professional level recordings right-away, and giving you a system that you can expand into the future! The Lambda Studio hardware can also be used with almost any recording and sequencing software the user prefers.

Lexicon Pantheon Reverb plug-in
Bundled FREE with the Omega is Lexicon's famous Pantheon Reverb plug-in. Designed entirely by Lexicon engineers, the Pantheon reverb 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."

Great Box

I bought this interface several years ago to record vocals in my pre-production studio. It still works great with my mac computer. It is also very easy to set up and use.

Great Value

Awesome box for the price... MIDI, two Mic Pre's (dbx Mic Pre's at that). Unlike the specs they have listed here... it IS bus powered. It also will not do 96K or 88.2K, it is 44.1 and 48 only. It also has the TRS inserts on the Mic Pre's which I found interesting on a box of this price. I've used them to put a HW compressor on the Mic inputs. It's just a solid box that sounds great.

This interface DOES have phantom power.

I have this, it's perfect for my needs. Unlike the spec listed here, it does, in fact, have Phantom Power.
