Question about Lexicon Lambda Usb Desktop Recording Interface Sound Card

Open Question

Garage band will not recognize the lexicon until I remove and re-plug in the usb. Then no sound will come out of the garage band, either while recording or playing back, and the record volume slider on the lower right wont move from zero. This does not occur to existing garage band files if I pull up garage band with lexicon attached. Its not recognized till I unplug and re-plug. I am going into the lexicon line one and two with left and right lines from a cassette deck (to digitize my tape). i can hear the audio in the lexicon unit with the earphones, and the audio is showing up on the recording bars. I'm going into a mac with at least the requirements for not needing to load up a driver.

SOURCE: lambda doesn't record, though it seems ready to go

you need to go to the "control panel" on your on sounds and audio devices, then hit the "audio" tab...make sure the lambda is selected on the recording and playback device....then apply...this should take care of it

There is a major design flaw with the Omega. The ribbon cable touches one of the power tabs that tends to get very hot. this causes the ribbon cable to melt and damages it.

If you open up the case you will se it straight away.

If it is under warranty take it in to be repaired. It is a simple repair and should cost yo nothing.

Otherwise buy a new ribbon cable (I'm guessing most computer shops would sell them). Rplace the old cable with the new one then insulate the new ribbon cable (with electrical tape or something stronger) where it touches the power tab.

I also drilled a few holes in the top and sides of the case (do this carefully as the case is weak).

Be aware tho that drilling holes or altering the case will void your warranty.

SOURCE: I Installed the Lexicon Lambda and followed all of

You will need to go into your sound properties, you can do this by clicking on the speaker Icon thats down by the clock (lower rights hand side of your screen) that should bring up sliders for everything.
Their is also other options and advanced options you may need to enable that could be specific to your devices. but the main thing here would be for you to disable the one mic and enable the one you want and also possibly lower its sensitivity levels.

Have just purchased lexicon alpha to use on a Mac. Having trouble just getting started. Have hooked up a nice condenser mic into the alpha through the mic input on the rear and cannot get anything on the...

Make sure you have Phantom power turned on on the Lexicon... Oh,oh... it appears that the Alphs may NOT have phantom power which IS a REQUIREMENT for most condenser mics...

The Lexicon Omega does have this but apparently the Aplpha doesn't have it.

That leaves you with the choice of either getting a dynamic mic that doesn't need Phantom, or replacing the Alpha, OR using a preamp ahead of the mic before the Alpha...

Sorry, but those are the only solutions I see for you.

REMEMBER that condenser mics pick up everything and you cannot run them into a PA or they will feedback.

Program 2004 mercury mountainer garage opener

Verify the hand-held transmitter is operative.
Prepare for programming the universal transmitter by erasing all three channels (hold down the two outside buttons until the red light begins to flash [20-30 seconds]). Release both buttons.
Select one of the three universal transmitter channels to be programmed by pressing the desired button
Hold the end of the hand-held transmitter 25-51 mm (1-2 in) from the front surface of the universal transmitter so that the red light can still be seen
Use both hands to press the hand-held transmitter button and the desired button on the universal transmitter. Do not release either button.
Hold down both buttons until the red light on the universal transmitter flashes, first slowly and then rapidly. Release both buttons when the rapid flashing begins. The universal transmitter has successfully learned the new frequency signal and can be used in place of the hand-held transmitter(s).
If the hand-held transmitter appears to program the universal transmitter but does not open the garage door, the garage door opener may have a code protected or rolling code feature.
To operate, simply press the appropriate button on the universal transmitter. The red light is on while the signal is being transmitted.
program as above then------
Train the garage door opener receiver to recognize the universal transmitter.
Remove the cover panel from the garage door opener receiver.
Locate the training button on the garage door opener receiver. Location and color of the button may vary by garage door opener manufacturer. Refer to the garage door opener instruction manual or owner literature.
Press the training button on the garage door opener receiver for 1-2 seconds.
Press the programmed universal transmitter button for as long as the universal transmitter red light flashes (1-2 seconds). Release the button and re-press the button to confirm that the universal transmitter is trained to the receiver.
The garage door opener should recognize the universal transmitter.
