Lexicon Alpha Studio – More Details Revealed

Projected street price of just $129 for the entry-level system      20/03/06

A couple of weeks ago we broke the news of the latest in Lexicon’s desktop recording range – the Alpha Studio. The system has now been on show at the NSCA Expo in Las Vegas and we have some more details including the estimated US pricing.
Here’s the details directly from Lexicon’s own press release…
The new Alpha Desktop Recording Studio continues the tradition of excellence established by its popular siblings, the Lambda and Omega Desktop Recording Studios. Alpha Studio is a bus-powered 2x2x2 USB I/O mixer packaged as a complete recording solution with Cubase LE and the Lexicon Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in. The Alpha Studio features one XLR microphone input, two TRS line inputs and two TRS & RCA line outs. Alpha’s front panel features an ultra high-z 1/4" instrument input for direct to computer recording and a 1/8" high powered headphone output for use with professional or consumer headphones.
Conveniently powered directly from the USB bus, the Alpha Studio can stream two channels of 44.1 or 48 kHz audio at either 16- or 24-bit resolution to Mac or PC computers. Users can record two tracks at once from two input sources. The microphone and line inputs have individual level controls and peak meters which are summed at the analog-to-digital bus. Mono/stereo monitoring is provided, as well as Zero-latency Direct/Playback Monitoring, allowing for delay-free overdubs. As with all recording solutions from Lexicon Pro, the Alpha Studio hardware can be used with almost any recording software the user prefers.
Jeff Phillips, Harman Music Group Market Manager, Recording, had this to say about Alpha, “The Alpha Desktop Recording Studio represents the entry-level of Lexicon’s family of feature rich USB audio solutions. Now, with three incredible Lexicon solutions to choose from, users can achieve professional quality audio recordings, wherever their creativity takes them.� Price and Availability
