pretty decent

DJ SLOP, amazon.com

  • Summary: this product is pretty decent as the title describes. some hissing horrible noises at times when it gets overloaded but if i touch the microphone cord or wiggle it, usually stops. has altered my ability to record at times, and the software that comes with it is ok, ,but a drag to register and get finalized. support sucks too. but oh well. ok for fifty bucks thats for dang sure. if you are on a budget and want a good sounding audio interface buy this. some - though.

Gets the job done if you're patient.

  • Summary: I have a Presonus Audiobox that has worked well for me. I needed to add another audio in/out, and the price of the Lexicon tempted me to give it a try. I was also afraid if I got a second Presonus that my computer might have issues working with two identical units. The Lexicon hardware definitely feels cheaper than the Presonus, but then again I paid less than half of the $150 I paid for the Presonus too.

Nice cheap upgrade from onboard audio

  • Summary: Contrary to what some think, this does work with Win7 x64 unless I just have an updated version. It will work as a WDM or MME device using the default Win7 drivers and shows up as a USB audio device. I'm using Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 PE so I didn't bother installing Cubase but the following method should work just the same if you want the better ASIO mode. First google the asio4all driver and install the latest which was the 2.10 beta version at this time.

Not a bad little box and there's plenty of bang for the buck. Don't buy if you have a 64 bit OS though.

  • Summary: This is a nice little recording box and it is powered by the usb cable so you don't need to 'plug it in'. Only problem was I could not get it to work because the one thing I am not used to thinking about when I buy hardware now is that I have a computer with Windows 7 64 bit. The more research I did, reading forums and searching Lexicon's web site, the more I was convinced there would not be a 64 bit driver forthcoming any time soon.

Zero Latency? well sort of?

  • Summary: I bought this hoping to use it with my laptop with zero lantency, along with a guitar effects programme to play through my laptop as an effects unit, I made a mistake it is nearly zero latency, not quite! it is good enough, but I wouldn't recommend anyone to do this unless perhaps you have more memory in your laptop, I am running a fairly new laptop with 2gigs of ram, but, it doesn't work with this soundcard when trying to play real time effects it overloads and makes...

Lexicon Alpha Usb Audio Interface

Mozzy "twangerdude", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I upgraded from an Edirol UA-3FX recently and i am very happy with this unit.I am no way a technophobe so i usually find connecting all devices/instruments and getting a signal very much a chore. There are enough inputs here to connect my keyboard,guitar,headphones,monitors all at once,which is just what i wanted. The settings for the pc"s sounds and audio devices must be spot on from the Lexicon"s manual for all the instruments and devices be heard.

  • Summary: Trotz neuster Treiber und korrekt installierem ASIO hatte ich oft Probleme mit der Lexicon. In bestimmten Konfigurationen (gleichzeitig abhören und aufnehmen) lieferte sie plötzlich nur noch weißes Rauschen. Ausschalten-Wiedereinschalten hilft, aber nur bis zum nächsten Mal. Geringste Schwankungen in der USB-Stromversorgung (Wechsel zwischen Batterie- und Netzbetrieb beim Notebook) führten zum Absturz der Karte. Auch hier hilft dann nur Aus- und Wiedereinschalten.
