This article focuses on Lexicon Omega Portable recording system. The Omega, an 8-input, 4-bus, 2-output USB I/O mixer represents the core of the system. Sturdily constructed out of silver and blue plastic and sporting red, blue and green LEDs, the squat Omega has a 7x3,25-inch footprint. A closer look at the uncluttered front panel reveals a surprising amount of features and functionality. Two mic-level input potentiometers control up to 50 dB of input gain for the unit's corresponding dbx Silver Series XLR mic pre's, and are equipped with peak indicators and bus assigns that allow the user to assign the inputs in pairs to the four USB buses.
