Lexicon and compatibility with Yosemite

Setting up the Omega is simple and it can really work in any of your programs that you use. I have used the Omega in about 5 different DAW programs and it worked great with each one of them. You can record multiple tracks simultaneously. It is very simple to use and all of the main functions are right on the main panel of the interface which makes it easy to use.
The drivers are stable, but because it is an older unit you will need to make sure you download some of the newer drivers from the Lexicon site. This is where you might run into some problems because this unit came out in like 2007. There have been many changes in OS over the last 5 to 6 years and it was not designed to run on newer systems and computers. But some of the Alpha drivers could very well work for it if you cannot find any new drivers for Omega.
I am very happy to have used this interface years ago. I no longer own it but it was worth every penny of what it cost when it first came out. I would still buy it again if I needed to , that’s how good it was!
I think with everything that you get with this package makes it worth the money spent. Cubase is a great program to have especially if you are going to be producing music, but if you are recording and going to mix your songs I don’t suggest using Cubase. The interface itself is pretty good though, its not very well built and couldn’t take much wear and tear but the quality that you will get is very nice.
It has ultra low latency so there are not gaps in time while recording or at least to the naked ear. You wont be able to hear the latency at all. There are not really any interfaces that don’t have latency anyways so its as close as you can get to zero latency.
It is worth the buy, but only if you want work with Cubase. When trying to use this interface in other digital audio workstations and programs it will cause some problems down the road.

Since it was my first time really recording myself, I ran into some small issues just with how to set everything up and how to actually record and over dub and all that good stuff. But those where just issues from it being my first time, so after I worked out those problems I got right to recording.
Some of the things I really like about it was it was really easy just to open the program and drag the instrumental in and press record and that was it, nice and quick and easy. I really had no knowledge of actually mixing or anything so all that stuff didn’t matter to me. I don’t really think it would have been to hard to get a good mix in Lexicon Studio. I just didn’t know how to do it. I also loved how fast the program opened up. Unless pro tools which is what I use now it takes time to get it to open. I no longer have Lexicon Omega Studio I sold it on eBay a few years ago and upgraded. One bad thing about this bundle is the mic is really cheap. You could probably get the same quality from a wal mart mic that comes on a karaoke machine..

After much research I decided to purchase the Omega instead of jumping up into the price range of the Firepod. For this price range, the sound is great and it can record 4 analog inputs at once when almost everything else around $300 can only do 2. Wish it had an on/off switch - you have to unplug it to turn it off. But I like controlling and monitoring the levels from the unit as opposed to an on-screen interface. If you don't need to record more than 4 tracks at a time, I would recommend this unit.
This program is for the beginner, don’t expect to be able to do anything near what you can do in pro tools or other recording systems. This will hold you back big time, but if you are just looking for something cheap to get started with it might work for you. But if you arent a beginner do not purchase this. You will feel like you cant do everything you need to do and you will come up short. The software that comes with it is not too good at all. I wouldn’t even attempt to try and mix in this program. You mix would sound terrible.
