Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Sound Card
The 16 position rotary switch that selects the effect only goes up to 4 on my old Lexicon Alex. After four, it goes to random effects between 1 and 4, even if it's on 16. I tried jumping the poles on the switch, and it will change to different effects.
Basically the switch is broken or malfunctioning due to wear, which is as good as broken. Where could I find a suitable replacement? I think it's a 16 position hexadecimal, but I'm not sure. Anyone have any ideas?
I don't think it's broken. I think you've cleared some registers (probably number 5 from your description, maybe more) and now you're "us[ing] cleared registers as loop points." This means that you're looping 1-2-3-4 then back to 1 again. This is actually a feature of the Alex and it's awesome as long as you're using it intentionally :) If you don't know you're "using" it the unit have symptoms similar to what you're describing. It's possible that it is broken, but it's more likely that you're in this mode.
I attached a pic of my user's manual.
Also here are the directions as printed in the manual to clear or restore a register (i.e. a number spot on the dial):

Try Farnell - they have a export department who can send you the rotary selector switch and ship to your Rural area :)
