Question about Lexicon Mx200 Reverb Delay 1u Effects Processor

1 Answer

On powering up, the lexicons LCD display Audition light flashes for about 6-7 secs, then "21" appears then"UP". After this none of the buttons/Diald work-it just freezes. I have been told by Lexicon that "UP" permanently in the display means there is no operating system, and its waiting for an update or upgrade I followed Lexicons instructions and downloaded and tried to update the USB drivers (the computer says that an MX200 has been seen by the USB) by running MX EDIT 2.3, but the computer says it cant download from USB to MX200 showing the error message "Family 0 is not supported" Obviously, I cant run the Lexicon OS updating S-Ware, as the computer cant see the MX200 And I cant perform a factory reset as there is no OS in the MX200 and none of the buttons respond Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Lexicon alpha interface is recording a faint high pitched sound

Check for ground loops.

You MIGHT be able to cut the noise by setting the EQ's to clip the highs.

SOURCE: Lexicon Alpha got phantom?

The Lexicon Alpha does NOT have phantom power. The mic input expects a standard mic or a "self-powered" condensor mic. This means that you will neex external phantom power. There are power units available that use 9V batteries for this.

SOURCE: im having a problem with hearing my b-1 studio

Sorry but... Very simply, you CANNOT use a condenser mic with the Alpha since it does not supply the required Phantom power for the mic. You must step up to another interface to use condenser mics. You can use dynamic mics with the Alpha or other audio sources. I use a Roland/Cakewalk UA25E interface with condenser mics and also the Lexicon Omega which does have Phantom power for the mics..

I think I've a failed unit. Turning it on - the USB flashes and then it remains on the logo splash screen. I have tried numerous times to factory resent - holding down the System button on power on,...


It MAY be waiting for an UPDATE of firmware via USB. In other words you may have triggered an update mode that it will not exit without sending an update. The second possibility that comes to mind is that one of the buttons or the switch behind it may be stuck which can lock up the processor. Look for a button stuck in or that feels un-normal.

Hi! I just recived a Lexicon Alpha desk top and i cannot find the actavation code. Therefore i cannot activate the recorder "i guess" or can i?


There is no activation code. You will need software that handles I/O sound device other than the built in audio of the PC. This device is sometimes delivered with either Sonar home edition or CuBase.

Whats the polarity of lexicon ionix u22 audio adaptor? should i set plus or minus polarity on the adcd transformer/adaptor? thankx


Easy answer: You DON'T set the polarity because this particular device takes a 9 VAC at 2.1 amp adapter. (Not a DC one like so called universal ones)
It sounds like you have one of those universal adapters which probably would not deliver the 2.1 amps required even if the lexicon took DC. Note that stuff might light up, but the unit will not work using a DC adapter..

You had better get an official power supply for this unit as what you have will NOT work, period!

I did a quick search to try and find a link to a supplier, but they are RARE !!! Every one I found would require you changing the plug to match the Lexicon.

You should just order the correct one from Lexicon.

I have a lexicon alpha, samsung CO1 condenser mic and a samsung phantom power box, i have all the correct wires but i dont think i am connecting the correctly, HELP ME ! lol


Sorry, but the Alpha does NOT have Phantom power which IS required for a condenser mic.

You will either have to get a mic preamp that supplies phantom power or go to a dynamic type mic if you stay with the Lexicon Alppha.

Just bought a lexicon alpha. I installed everything, all drivers are up to date. I can get it to play audio out through my monitors but I can't get it to receive signals in. I tired my sampler into the...


First, I could NOT find an MXL99 microphone... IF you have an MXL990 microphone, you can STOP trying to have the Alpha read it because it won't !!! The MXL990 is a condenser mic and requires that Phantom power be supplied to it and the Alpha does NOT have Phantom power.
I have found a common problem on the audio interface inout is having to GO INTO the windows Sounds and Devices and verifying that under the VOICE tab, checking that the inout device is listed AND then checking the volume is turned up in that window... It seems like you have to verify everything and tweek a dozen places to get everything right to work. Having to look under the "VOICE" tab is not a good description of where the Alpha input control should be... so anyway, check that as well as it is not MUTED in that window. With Adobe Audition, make sure you set under the options, the "metering" to monitor the input recording level.

I suspect the problem is with the software setup in your PC. Verify all the options and also verify that the AUDIO system is assigned as stereo and assigned to the Lexicon for both in and out... Also check any "PAN" control settings. There is a possibilty that the Alpha has a dead channel...

Try putting a stereo signal into the 1/4 inch jacks and see if both record... if NOT then take it for repair under warranty... I had a Lexicon Omega that had a problem myself... warranty repair...

You should be at SP2, but that MAY NOT be the problem. One thing to check is if you are supposed to have the device connected when you install the software... in SOME cases doing it with or without connection will affect the outcome. Also make sure ALL virus/spyware/popup blockers are disabled during install.

Before using this device, make sure that going to the control panel and looking at the "Sounds and Devices" shows that the Lexicon is the inout and output device for all the tabs within that window.

Make sure you have Phantom power turned on on the Lexicon... Oh,oh... it appears that the Alphs may NOT have phantom power which IS a REQUIREMENT for most condenser mics...

The Lexicon Omega does have this but apparently the Aplpha doesn't have it.

That leaves you with the choice of either getting a dynamic mic that doesn't need Phantom, or replacing the Alpha, OR using a preamp ahead of the mic before the Alpha...

Sorry, but those are the only solutions I see for you.

REMEMBER that condenser mics pick up everything and you cannot run them into a PA or they will feedback.
