Noisy piece of gear.

Summary: I bought this piece of gear thinking it would be great to connect my guitar rig to the Cubase LE using the usb port. I have tried everything to get this working and can only get one side either L or R to work without noise and latency.
Summary: I have had this unit for a good four years. It has worked glitch free with two different laptops and a desktop, all running XP Pro. Initially, I had major problems with the bundled software (Cubase LE). Ditched it and now I use Audacity.
Summary: I bought this interface a week ago and is still having problems recording with it. I ha badaax mic connected to it but when I try to record vocals it only records one side and is very low. I can barely hear it. I need help
Summary: I've had this device for about 3 or 4 years now. I mainly do drum covers and a few full band things, and over time I've gotten less and less satisfied with the quality it produces, both through the XLR and the 1/4" inputs.
Summary: Faulty! I get a high pitch sound every time I record. I have spend days adjusting settings, reloading drivers and troubleshooting. I loaded it on to two different computers with the same result.
Summary: I purchased the Lexicon Lambda in December of 2009, mainly because I wanted an audio interface that would allow me to connect my MIDI keyboard (Alesis QS8), L-R audio out from the keyboard and two XLR mics to my PC, one of which requires phantom power (AKG C2000B).
Summary: I had high hopes for this given its specs and price, however, though it is said to be compatible with Windows XP, I couldn't get my rig to recognize it and load the drivers without which nothing worked.
Summary: First and foremost, make sure your computer is compatible with this product. When I bought it, my computer didn't have the necessary components to support the Lambda, so I couldn't even use it for the first 3 months! Once my computer had downloaded everything, I was in business!
Summary: The Lambda is the best of Lexicon's line up! Why? It uses USB power, and has built in phantom power for a powered recording mike, which is what you'll want to make pro live acoustic recordings. Lexicons upper end OMEGA seems to be manufactured differently. Just read all the disapointing reviews.
Summary: The fact that it was USB powered and still was a source of phantom power is what sold me but when I used it on my PC, the lag time was remarkably annoying. I found myself wasting more time editting this product's mistakes instead of recording. Waste of money and time.
