AES06SF: Lexicon Show Off Alpha Studio


We brought you news on the Alpha Desktop Recording Studio back in March but we now have a photo for the first time as Lexicon Pro were showing this new USB desktop recording solution at the AES show. Lexicon say that this system includes everything needed for portable, professional recordings including the Alpha Studio USB I/O, Steinberg’s Cubase LE multi-track PC and Mac recording software, and the Lexicon Pantheon VST reverb plug-in.
Here’s what they have to say in their own words…
‘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 and 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, told us, “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.�
