Complete Recording Solution

The Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface is a bus-powered 2 x 2 USB I/O mixer packaged as a complete recording solution with Cubase LE recording software and Lexicon's Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in. The Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface features one XLR microphone input, two TRS line inputs and two TRS & RCA line outs. The Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface's front panel features an ultra high-z 1/4" instrument input for direct to computer recording and a 1/8" high powered headphone output for use with professional or consumer headphones.

24-bit/48kHz Audio Recording

Conveniently powered directly from the USB bus, the Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface can stream two channels of 44.1 or 48 kHz audio at either 16- or 24-bit resolution to Mac or PC computers. Users can record two tracks at once from two input sources. The microphone and line inputs have individual level controls and peak meters which are summed at the analog-to-digital bus. Mono/stereo monitoring is provided, as well as Zero-latency Direct/Playback Monitoring, allowing for delay-free overdubs. As with all recording solutions from Lexicon Pro, the Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface can be used with almost any recording software the user prefers.

Cubase LE and Lexicon Pantheon Reverb

From the first idea to complete compositions, Cubase is the virtual studio for all musicians and producers looking for a creative way to realize their projects. Cubase LE integrates seamlessly with the Alpha I/O Mixer to achieve an easy-to-use, 48-track complete recording solution that includes all of the modules that you need to track, edit and mix your masterpiece.

To give your recordings that legendary "Lexicon Sound," the Lexicon Alpha Audio Interface includes the Lexicon Pantheon VST Reverb plug-in. The Lexicon name is synonymous with "the world's best reverb." Pantheon continues this legacy and delivers that "Lexicon Sound" used on most of today's recorded music and movies.
