Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio

1 Answer

WDM Driver failed to install is the first of four

"WDM Driver failed to install" WDM Driver is the first of four installs on the CD to install the Omega Destop Recording Studio. Lexicon Omega is the name on the Mixer. The directions say to plug the USB cord from the Mixer to the computer before starting install. I did that. Then when I select install the WDM Driver, ASIO Driver, Cubase LE Driver, and Help Files, nothing will get by installing the WDM Driver first. Other info. on the bottom of the mixer the label says Model No. LEXOMEGA SV Serial No. 00011685 RoHS.
I will be greatful for help with this problem. Thank you, Ted

Make sure you verify that your computer meets the requirements for the Omega. I have one of these and it installed on an XP with no problem.

Maybe you have Vista instead of XP. OFTEN there are incompatibilities of Vista. If you have that or heaven forbod Windows 7, you may either need a different WDM or have to backstep to the XP operating system.

In short, VERIFY the requirements of teh Omega and its software with the OS and system you are trying to install it on.

A last thing to try is to install it while in "SAFE MODE".

The software is by Stienberg and is called "Cubase" that is delivered with the Lexicon. The Omega doesn't really have any software to speak of except for the drivers. Browse the software disk looking for the section containing the drivers. When you install it, it will create a Lexicon folder with the root of your C drive and in it will be an Omega folder. In that is a driver folder and a folder of help files. In the Driver folder folder you will find the installer file "Omega Setup". Launch that program to install the drivers. Please note I have one of these and it can be frustrating to get things working. Make sure in the PC in the control panel "sounds and devices" that under the tabs that the Omega is the device to send and receive and for voice. Once you have done the install, the Omega should be in the list of available devices to select as default.

Lexicon omega usb board burn in two places part[80-0112-b]digital B D


One can burn up equipment if you have powered parts of it from different sources...such as connecting things together that get their power from different receptacles. Ground bounce and fault currents of defective equipment can burn up things. You will probably have to send your unit back to the factory for 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.

Im having a problem with hearing my b-1 studio condenser mic on the lexicon alpha progam?


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..

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.
