The Lexicon Omega was on the first full portable bundles that I had for my laptop about 5 years ago. It is a 8 channel USB interface that has 2 XLR mic preamps and 4 TRS inputs. It does have MIDI in and MIDI out plus it comes with a copy of Cubase LE. You can use this interface on your PC or your Mac computer and it cost less than 200 dollars. The Omega’s preamp is not as quiet as the preamp on the Lexicon Alpha, but the latency is a lot lower on the Omega then it is on the Alpha. I know that Omega is a older interface but I will take it any day over the Alpha (which is the newer one).

UTILIZATION

Setting up the Omega is simple and it can really work in any of your programs that you use. I have used the Omega in about 5 different DAW programs and it worked great with each one of them. You can record multiple tracks simultaneously. It is very simple to use and all of the main functions are right on the main panel of the interface which makes it easy to use.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are stable, but because it is an older unit you will need to make sure you download some of the newer drivers from the Lexicon site. This is where you might run into some problems because this unit came out in like 2007. There have been many changes in OS over the last 5 to 6 years and it was not designed to run on newer systems and computers. But some of the Alpha drivers could very well work for it if you cannot find any new drivers for Omega.

OVERALL OPINION

I am very happy to have used this interface years ago. I no longer own it but it was worth every penny of what it cost when it first came out. I would still buy it again if I needed to , that’s how good it was!
