On the heels of the launch of Apple's iPad2 and GarageBand for iPad, Lexicon has announced the Omega Desktop Recording Interface's capability for digital streaming and recording to Apple's iPad.
Lexicon's Omega allows musicians to record directly with any audio recording app, including the newly released GarageBand. The high-quality audio streaming capability of Omega allows musicians who record at home and on the go take further advantage of the increasing number of recording applications for musicians available from the Apple App Store.
The Omega contains all the necessary components to transform an iPad into a professional 24-bit recording studio. For the first time, a user can record, edit, mix and publish high quality audio using an iPad and the Lexicon Omega.
"We immediately recognized the power and relevance of the iPad platform for the recording musician, and were determined to integrate it with the flexibility our recording products," stated Rob Urry, Vice President and General Manager of Harman Professional Signal Processing Group. "Lexicon brings 40 years of recording experience to musicians and we are the leaders in providing high-definition audio streaming and playback capability with the iPad."
The Lexicon Omega is designed and built around the same model as large-format recording consoles. An 8-input, 4-Bus, 2-output USB I/O mixer with inserts, instrument input, MIDI I/O and complete metering and monitoring functions gives you the freedom to record up to four tracks at once and mix without the need for additional mixing hardware.

Is it bus powered or will it need more juice than the iPad can provide?

This article is just about worthless. The one piece of actual information is that the Lexicon Omega can be used with the iPad. The article stops there, however. What about a blurb about how it connects? Does it connect using Apple's USB cable?
