Omega Studio, now with OS X and Cubase
Lexicon Pro has announced that its Omega Studio will now come packaged with Steinberg’s Cubase LE MultiTrack PC and Mac OS X recording software.
The Lexicon Pro Omega Studio is an integrated computer recording system that includes the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O mixer now with a VST Version of the Pantheon Lexicon reverb plug-in, coupled with Steinberg’s cross-platform Cubase LE featuring 48-track audio/64 MIDI tracks, up to eight VST instruments, two insert/four aux sends per channel and ASIO drivers.
An 8-input, 4-bus, 2-output USB I/O mixer with inserts, instrument input, MIDI I/O and complete metering and monitoring functions allow the user to record and mix without re-patching or the need for any additional hardware.
The Omega I/O mixer provides eight inputs and an instrument input that are assignable in pairs to any of four simultaneous record channels, featuring ultratransparent, high-resolution analog to digital converters to capture a performance with pristine 24-bit quality. Two of the inputs feature low-noise dbx mic preamps with 48-volt phantom power and TRS insert points. Four TRS active balanced line inputs accept up to +22dBu signals to allow interfacing to either unbalanced or high-output level balanced equipment. Included is a S/PDIF input combined with an additional DAC for zero latency, and direct monitoring of the S/PDIF source to enable simultaneous tracking of analog and digital sources. A high-impedance instrument input is accessible on the front panel.
