The OMEGA BUNDLE is a 8x4x2 Desktop Recording Studio with AKG D 88 S Microphone, Cubase LE4 and Lexicon Pantheon Reverb Plug-In. CONTAINS ALL THE COMPONENTS NECESSARY TO TRANSFORM YOUR COMPUTER INTO A PROFESSIONAL 24-BIT RECORDING STUDIO.
The recording professionals at Lexicon know a thing or two about great audio - that famed Lexicon reverb "sound" has been on just about every hit recording since we invented digital reverb more than 30 years ago. So when we set out to bring that sound home - we got truly inspired.Nothing is more frustrating than buying a "recording system," only to find out that you need a gaggle of extras just to make it all work. The Lexicon Omega Studio Bundle is a completely-integrated computer recording system that includes: the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O Mixer, an AKG D 88 S dynamic handheld microphone, Steinberg's Cubase LE audio and MIDI recording software and Lexicon's world-class Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in. The Omega Desktop Recording Studio Bundle quite literally contains all the necessary components to transform your computer into a professional 24-bit recording studio - all in one box.Unlike standard computer I/O boxes based on a patch bay concept, the Lexicon Omega Studio is designed and built around the same paradigm 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 4 tracks at once and mix without the need for additional mixing hardware.Two dbx Silver Series mic preamps with 48V phantom power provide a pristine front end for high-end condenser or more common dynamic microphones, insuring premium sound quality from the first take to the last. TRS insert points allow you to plug in your favorite dynamic processors before the signal reaches one of the 4 busses, where 24-bit converters transform the analog signal into a digital masterpiece.Four servo-balanced TRS line inputs with up to +22dBu input levels let you hook up everything from keyboards to guitar preamps, including high-output professional gear. Stereo digital inputs are available via SPDIF jacks, and an additional high-impedance instrument input is included on the front panel for easy access to guitars and basses.Finally, a fully opto-isolated MIDI input to ensures that there is no annoying ground loop hum or MIDI talk-through noise common with many I/O boxes and sound cards; MIDI output has rock-solid synchronization to USB frame rate to support applications requiring critical sync.The Omega I/O mixer also features channel peak indicators for each analog input as well as an assignable bargraph meter for the 4 busses. By monitoring the signal before the A/D converters, clipping and distortion can be averted, unlike software-only level monitoring that can miss "overs", ruining the track.All these gazintas and getoutzas are put together just like a big recording console, with input gain controls, four recording busses, and full monitoring features, in one attractive, portable I/O Mixer. Just plug it into your Mac or PC computer with the included USB cable, and you're instantly ready to capture the moment.FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS:• Microphone Inputs (2) Female XLR Pin 2 Hot • Input Impedance 664 Ohms balanced • Phantom Power +48 Volt • EIN -118 dB @ 51 dB gain (150 Ohm source impedance) -120 dB A-weighted • Maximum Input Level -2 dBu (150 Ohm source impedance) • Frequency Response +0, -0.2 dB 20 Hz - 20 kHz, ref. 1 kHz • Microphone Inputs (2) Female XLR Pin 2 Hot • Input Impedance 664 Ohms balanced • Phantom Power +48 Volt • EIN -118 dB @ 51 dB gain (150 Ohm source impedance) -120 dB A-weighted • Maximum Input Level -2 dBu (150 Ohm source impedance) • Frequency Response +0, -0.2 dB 20 Hz - 20 kHz, ref. 1 kHz • THD+N <.005%, 20 Hz - 20 kHz • Insert Inputs (2) 1/4" TRS balanced or unbalanced • Send Level (ring) +19 dBu maximum • Maximum Return Level (tip) +19 dBu maximum • Line Inputs (4) 1/4" TRS balanced or unbalanced • Input Impedance 20 kOhm unbalanced, 10 kOhm unbalanced • Maximum Input Level +19 dBu (40 Ohm source impedance) • Frequency Response +0, -0.2 dB 20 Hz - 20 kHz, ref. 1kHz • THD+N <.012% A/D, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, <.012% A/D/A, 20 Hz - 20 kHz • Instrument Input (1) 1/4" mono jack • Input Impedance 1 MOhm unbalanced • Maximum Input Level +19 dBu • Frequency Response +0, -0.25 dB 20 Hz - 20 kHz, ref. 1 kHz • THD+N <.0125% A/D • Crosstalk <-74 dB any input or output to any recording channel, 20 Hz-20 kHz <-95 dB at 1 kHz typical • Line Outputs (2) 1/4" TRS balanced or unbalanced • Level +19 dBu maximum • Impedance 110 Ohms • Headphone Output (1) 1/4" stereo jack 100 mW per channel at 50 Ohms • MIDI Interface 5 pin DIN connectors for MIDI in and MIDI out • Digital Audio Input Coaxial RCA (S/PDIF format) • Digital Audio Output Coaxial RCA (S/PDIF format) always transmits the audio data from the USB stream • D/A and A/D Conversion Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz (determined by computer application) • Dynamic Range: A/D >101 dB typical, unweighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz>104 dB typical, A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz D/A >107 db typical, unweighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz>109 db typical, A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz A/D/A >100 dB dB typical, unweighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz >103 dB typical, A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz • Analog Path >115 dB dB typical, unweighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz >118 dB typical, A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz • USB Type B Socket: Version 1.1, Version 1.1 hubs are not supported • Power Requirements: PS0913-B adapter supplied • Dimensions 4.625" W x 7.25" H x 7.75" D (118mm x 184mm x 197mm) • Shipping Weight 3.50 lbs.
