It MAY be waiting for an UPDATE of firmware via USB. In other words you may have triggered an update mode that it will not exit without sending an update. The second possibility that comes to mind is that one of the buttons or the switch behind it may be stuck which can lock up the processor. Look for a button stuck in or that feels un-normal.

Lexicon MX400 FX... | Answered on Dec 08, 2013


I've been struggling with this issue for about a week. My unit was locking up increasingly more often.

Two things I've noticed about my Lexicon interface:

1. Seems to be excessively hot.

2. The unit is not vented.

Yesterday, after reading a comment about the solder possibly being the problem, losing conductivity as the units warms up. I decided to run my Lexicon with the plastic case removed.

Since removing the the case, i have only had one instance where the sound stopped working, which i believe was a problem with Cubase in that instance.

I'm not sure if removing the case to keep the unit cooler is the solution. I may have improved a connection somewhere in the process of opening up the unit.

I can say that I went from getting a "new hardware found" message every two minutes to having virtually no problems since removing the case.

My next step will be to drill about 50 holes in the case to vent it before attempting to use the case again.

Best of luck to ya!!!

you have too much latency in your setup. Try using ASIO as your audio engine in your recording program. Also, shut down all unnecessary programs running on your computer to get better performance.

check the "buffer" setting - set to the lowest number possible. You can't eliminate the "latency" but you can reduce it a lot. Also 0 try to monitor what you are recording with "live" sound (input instead of output) - also, you may need to download a different driver for your audio card, try ASIO4ALL

Are you trying to use the mic input on the back or plugging it into the instrument input on the front? If you use a low impedance mic with a quarter inch instrument input cord, you would need a transformer adapter to make the mic work on high impedance. Even if you put it on line in, you would still have to convert it. Only the XLR socket on the back will work on a low impedance mic.
