Lexicon’s Latest Portable Desktop Recording Package


Many will be familiar with the Lexicon Omega Studio which offers a complete desktop recording solution and it has now been joined by the new Lexicon Lambda Desktop Recording Studio. Lambda comes as a highly affordable audio production package that includes the Lambda 4x2x2 buss powered USB I/O mixer, Steinberg® Cubase® LE recording software, and Lexicon’s renowned Pantheon VST reverb plug-in – both for either PC or Mac. Unlike standard computer I/O boxes based on a patchbay paradigm, the Lambda is a true recording mixer. This enables the user to connect to the unit’s two phantom powered XLR mic-pre inputs, two 1/4 inch insert points, two 1/4 inch balanced line inputs, and MIDI I/O simultaneously, while controlling input levels, stereo/ mono routing, and monitoring from the unit’s front panel. The front panel also features an ultra hi-z instrument input for DI’ing guitars and other instruments, and mini jack headphone output. This layout is designed to optimise workflow with a creatively conducive user interface. Lambda ships with Steinberg’s popular LE recording/ editing software package, which provides 48 tracks of audio and 64 tracks of MIDI recording/ editing, as well as complete automation of level, pan, mute, and plug-ins. Cubase LE supports up to eight VST instruments, and is compatible with both VST system link and Rewire 2 protocols. Also included, the Lexicon Pantheon VST reverb plug-in, offers 35 factory presets, and six reverb types with 16 user-editable parameters. Lexicon tell us that the Lambda offers a powerful, and easy to use desktop recording and production package, both for the musicians and DJs starting out, or seasoned professionals on the move.
