Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Sound Card

2 Answers

Cubase and Lexicon Omega

Everytime I load Cubase LE it tells me I have now sound input or output. Sometimes it works, but only for a min. and I can't make any changes. I am running it in Windows Vista, so that might be the problem. I've spent months trying to get it to work properly with no luck. I have the same problem using Cakewalk Sonar with the Omega interface.

Try downloading Asio4all at http://www.asio4all.com/ and carefully following their instructions. There is good information under the FAQ/Troubleshooting section on their site. Id also recommend joining Recording Review for some great info.

I am totally lost!! All I have is the lambda lexicon and cubase LE4 on my desktop.Apparently it is not set up correctly. I want to record guitar and voice I have sound on lambda through mike and guitar but...


All it needs is a USB connection. You'll need to go into Cubase device setup and make sure your lambda drivers are selected. Then create the audio channels in cubase with the inputs set as the inputs you're using for guitar and mic. There is a monitor button right next to the record enable button that needs to be enabled if you want to hear playback from your computer.

Good luck!

Recording with cubase problem


Need to set it to stereo. There may be a switch on your mixer, and you will also need to change the settings in Cubase to record in stereo, not mono.

Lexicon Lamda Problem


I have a Sterling st-51 condenser mic and purchased a Behringer xenyx 1002b mixer. Similar problem, dynamic mics work in low impedence with or without phantom pwr on. My Washburn acoustic bass with preamp in line input section. So I tried it on my Omega Lexicon interface. The condenser mic and everything else works on the Omega. This unit has a wall wart ( your Lambda is USB powered). I checked the voltages with a meter and found 23 volts from the mixer and 48 volts from the Omega. Further, I have two Shure SM-82 line mics which work on the mixer with the inputs turned all the way down but do not work on the Omega nor on my Spirit SX mixer which has 48 volts phantom power. The SM-82s are old line mics that have a 9.6 volt battery in the sleeve. They overload badly in all but the 1002B mixer. Their voltage should run btwn the 9.6 battery or a 22 volt phantom power.

Check your Lambda voltage, It could be way less than needed by the st-51. I will check with a friend who has the Lambda and check its voltage. Bet it is too low.

Again, My St-51 and 1002B mixer combo barely works at 23volts, the Mic gain is all the way up as is the channel slider and the main output slider. I cant get any reading on my led meters, occasional bump on the first light, no possible way to clip the input or the output and have to turn the high eq off and the mid way back due to hiss noise. Hope this helps,couldn't find minimum voltages on the ST-51 as yet.

Lexicon Omega/Cubasele4


I've had this problem and similar ones. Following these steps seems to help:

Starting Cubase before switching on the Omega.

Go to 'Devices' and then 'Device Set-up'. Make sure you're in the 'VST Audio System' part of the menu. Make sure the Omega is selected as the ASIO driver - if not, switch it. Then click on 'Set to Defaults', then 'Apply' and 'OK'.

Or re-setting the Omega sometimes helps too.

It's a pain, though.

Device is unrecognised always day per day


I've been struggling with this issue for about a week. My unit was locking up increasingly more often.

Two things I've noticed about my Lexicon interface:

1. Seems to be excessively hot.

2. The unit is not vented.

Yesterday, after reading a comment about the solder possibly being the problem, losing conductivity as the units warms up. I decided to run my Lexicon with the plastic case removed.

Since removing the the case, i have only had one instance where the sound stopped working, which i believe was a problem with Cubase in that instance.

I'm not sure if removing the case to keep the unit cooler is the solution. I may have improved a connection somewhere in the process of opening up the unit.

I can say that I went from getting a "new hardware found" message every two minutes to having virtually no problems since removing the case.

My next step will be to drill about 50 holes in the case to vent it before attempting to use the case again.

Best of luck to ya!!!

One day I turned it on, loaded the software. Error message...


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.
