Question about Lexicon Omega Pro Studio External Sound System
This is where it fails. Well...Failed...
One day I turned it on, loaded the software. Error message...
Never worked again. Tried it on several computers so it wasnt my system or driver issues.
Il'l explain more in the next catagory...
one day in mid-session the USB connection mysteriously disappeared which led to weeks of trouble shooting and drivers that refused to reinstall. One can theorize that that was the fault of my computer/system especially since I'm on a PC, but the fact is that The Lexicon Omega or it's drivers was the only thing that failed; Cubase, Wavelab and all the other audio and non-audio software performed fine during this period. This is a good product. However, the failure I experience may return. Since I was left to my own trial and error methods of solving my problem I have no idea how to prevent it from happening again, even if I now know how to recover.
I have to agree with GreasSlinger.
This unit isn't worth the plastic that it's made from.
Once repaired the unit becomes unstable and tempremental.
Lexicon shouldn't be allowed to still be shipping this expensive paper weight!
My advice : NEVER BUY LEXICON!
They know about this problem but refuse to acknowledge it since if they do they would most probably be liable.

This product is JUNK. An associate of mine advised me to purchase this piece. It worked less than six months. Now the unit is fourteen months old. Lexicon said they'd be happy to have me return it along with a money order, certified check or credit card number because the charge would be $75.00 flat to either repair mine and send it back to me, or replace the entire unit.
The associate who advised me to purchase this piece of gear works on microcircuits each day in his line of work. He uses microscopes to examine his work. One day when his Omega quit working, he opened it up on his bench where he identified numerous cold-solder joints. He repaired them and the unit worked for about three months before becoming unstable. He opened it up a second time and noticed all the jacks were starting to get loose.
At that point, be became aware of the $75.00 option with Lexicon. Instead, he deposited his Omega into the dumpster behind his place of employment. Today, his unit is a part of the landfill in Dallas, Texas.
LEXICON ABSOLUTELY KNOWS ABOUT THE PROBLEMS WITH THE OMEGA. LEXICON SHOULD REPLACE THE UNITS AT NO COST; CONSUMER PAYS SHIPPING IS FINE WITH ME. TWENTY YEARS AGO, LEXICON BUILT RUGGED AND DEPENDABLE GEAR. IT IS TOO BAD THEIR FINE NAME IS ON SUCH A PIECE OF ****. I'M AFRAID I'M DONE WITH LEXICON, FOREVER. IT WOULD BE TOO DIFFICULT TO CONSIDER PURCHASE OF ANYTHING WITH THE NAME ON IT.
