Product Description

Lexicon streamlines the desktop recording interface so you don't have to sacrifice your desktop or your music. You care intensely about your music. It's more than a pastime - it's a passion. Lexicon understands your passion and it inspires us to innovate. Brilliantly designed, the Ionix Desktop Recording Series fits where it makes the most sense, between your keyboard and monitor. With all monitor and input level controls at your fingertips, you'll wonder why no one ever thought of it before.

Featuring newly designed dbx microphone preamps on every channel, the Ionix series is more than equipped to provide professional recordings that keep your music sounding its best. The preamps run on a high-voltage supply to guarantee stability and provide you with a superior recording across a wide dynamic range. Performance driven A/D - D/A converters ensure pristine 24bit/96kHz audio to capture every subtle detail of your performance.

The Lexicon name is synonymous with "the world's best reverb." The Pantheon II VST/AU reverb plug-in features 6 reverb types with 16 adjustable parameters, and 35 factory presets that range from Vocal to Live Sound and Special Effects. It's easy to complete your mix and make your music sound its best with the exquisitely rich, full reverbs that made Lexicon famous. No compromise performance - ergonomic brilliance. Pure genius.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"A fine, complete, simple, affordable, friendly and rich generating studio quality recording interface."
Sound: This great interface hardware, married with Cubasis LE-4 software (that comes with it) has, finally, delivered what I wanted. A solid, non-complex, fine, professional, smooth and rich recording experience! I have produced 1 song of 4 minutes on the first day. Then it flowed. I have rekindled many of my former musical compositions because of this I-Onix U-42S. I can make three productions a day (average of 4-7 minutes) or a total of two times 10 minutes. I can also set up a project of 20 minutes of music- say within an hour, save it, and then shut down my work-station, Lexicon I-Onix interface and PC to have my hardware rest and cool down. (My Lexicon, Roland, Kork and Dell-PC) An hour or two later, (while sipping my tea on a side table) I would run the 26 minutes project and save it. Wow! What a relief! No hissing, no humming, no scratching. I love it Feature: So far I-Onix U42S is my best especially because I can afford it. But I see Lexicon coming up with new technology. Let me get some income first. Ease of Use: It is compatible and manageable. Once saved, I copy my proectt under a different file name and start editing it, using the great Cubasis LE-4. Then I chooose the best file and send it out for broadcasting. My musiic has been broadcasted. Thank you Lexicon Value: 100% Manufacturer Support: The retailer is a wonderful dealer. Ital Melodie Montreal. Caland has been a gret resource at this shop. The Wow Factor: Kinky Overall: As long as I can use it and until I am able to afford the new Lexicon Omega mixer/equalizer/interface

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
