Lexicon Alpha

Comments about Lexicon Alpha USB Desktop Recording Studio:

The Alpha is an amazing product that took my home recording experience to a whole other level for a very small amount of money. Before I got this i was running staight from my mixer to the computers mic input and could never get the sound back the i heard comong from my amp. The alpha fixed all of that cleaned up all the hissing and popping i was getting from going straight to the mic input plus all the options for recording on the interface not to mention the cubase program it comes with. I couldnt ask for more

Comments about Lexicon Alpha USB Desktop Recording Studio:

I have this product, and I just have to say its just gives best for the buck. I work with several bands, and I am quiet mobile when it comes to recording. Thanks to its small size, I can just throw this in with my laptop and go on to recording. Also, the latency just blew me away. Even with a slow laptop like mine, I can run it with 3mS latency. The only objection I have regarding this product is that it doesn't sync up the recording, so you have to do it manually by pushing the recorded segment back. Other than that, this interface is great!

Comments about Lexicon Alpha USB Desktop Recording Studio:

So far, so good. I mainly use this unit for monitoring, not recording. But I did test the instrument jack. I recorded a guitar part into Adobe Audition and it worked great. Lexicon allows you to fiddle with latency if you need to. Setup is super easy. It's nice to have USB power and not have to mess with another power cord. The only thing that's irritating so far is that the VST Pantheon Reverb that they packaged with it works ONLY with Cubase, which they also packaged with it. Yeah, that's great, but I use Audition. Audition says this plug-in is unsupported, even though it's VST. I understand that Cubase is probably making it so that you have to use their program to make use of the Reverb, but it would have been nice if they made that clear on the box. Other than that, this is a nice little unit for monitoring and also for portable recording if you hook it up to a laptop. Oh, and it has the Mono switch so you can hear your mixes in mono to check for phase issues.
