20 Most Recent Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Questions & Answers

The software is by Stienberg and is called "Cubase" that is delivered with the Lexicon. The Omega doesn't really have any software to speak of except for the drivers. Browse the software disk looking for the section containing the drivers. When you install it, it will create a Lexicon folder with the root of your C drive and in it will be an Omega folder. In that is a driver folder and a folder of help files. In the Driver folder folder you will find the installer file "Omega Setup". Launch that program to install the drivers. Please note I have one of these and it can be frustrating to get things working. Make sure in the PC in the control panel "sounds and devices" that under the tabs that the Omega is the device to send and receive and for voice. Once you have done the install, the Omega should be in the list of available devices to select as default.

One can burn up equipment if you have powered parts of it from different sources...such as connecting things together that get their power from different receptacles. Ground bounce and fault currents of defective equipment can burn up things. You will probably have to send your unit back to the factory for repair.

An insidious problem is if the throughput of your computer is being used up by things like anti-virus, anti spyware. Turn OFF ALL of these throughput hogs when doing audio operations. Also turn off wireless communication and ANY other active USB throughput hogs.

These hogs will usually cause sharp noises thaat are essentially discontinuities of the audio waveform.

IF the noise you are getting is a "hiss" type noise, that is different. That is USUALLY caused by the user failing to set the gains and levels properly. Some electronic noise is from the statistical background noise likited by the laws of physics, It is important to record and set the level well above these noise floor points.

Balancing gain is important. Set the amplitude of the line out to be near line level and lower the gain of following amplifiers. This is just good practice.

Anyway, decide which of these two noise sources might be what you are seeing.

The third noise MIGHT be from ground loop noise... for that power ALL, and I do mean all interconnected equipment from teh same power receptacle/source AND used balanced lines such as XLR or TRS wherever possible.

Make sure you verify that your computer meets the requirements for the Omega. I have one of these and it installed on an XP with no problem.

Maybe you have Vista instead of XP. OFTEN there are incompatibilities of Vista. If you have that or heaven forbod Windows 7, you may either need a different WDM or have to backstep to the XP operating system.

In short, VERIFY the requirements of teh Omega and its software with the OS and system you are trying to install it on.

A last thing to try is to install it while in "SAFE MODE".

I understand your pain - was googling for similar, and came across this post, 5 years prior. My SGC Nanyo Bass Collection has just started to play silly beggars with the pots, and a bridge fault. Nowhere online seemed to have any details of the wiring, as the problem is, as you say, the fact that all of the tone and volume pots are based on a printed circuit board. If theres a nick or short on the board, its a pig to replace, and I really wouldn't like to have to wire any pots onto it. I'm currently looking at the options of ripping out the old electrics and wiring it from scratch myself. If you're still after answers, good luck!

PS - noted that none of the previous replies are relevant to this - mostly going on about the amps or a Fender guitar??!
