I have very limited knowledge when it come to using this kind of equipment, but I do know that I had been looking for something for a while that I could use to record a bit of guitar with Garage Band on my Macbook.
Well this works a treat. Not additional software, Open Garage Band, wait for it to load, plug in USB lead and agree to Lexicon being used for input / output.
Easy.Feels like good quality too.

I bought this in a hurry because I was in a spot with a film sound recording job and needed to get digital audio into a buggy Vista laptop which could barely handle standard analogue audio playback let alone record high quality 24-bit digital audio to Cubase. I thought I would use it once and end up re-selling it at a loss.

It has turned out to be so surprisingly useful that I still have it months later and I am really impressed with the additional degree of flexibility and simplicity that it has added to my main studio setup (Windows XP Pro PC) as well as the vast improvement in quality and functionality on the occasions I have had to run recording programmes on that blasted laptop.

The thing itself feels light and plasticky but the actual build quality is respectable enough with good sockets and smooth controls. I love that the thing is powered directly from the USB port as it's one less thing to switch off and unplug when I shut the computer down, and it looks pretty good. The lack of phantom power means that I have to use an external preamp for my studio mic but for the rest of the time, unless I'm doing a live multitrack recording, I don't really need to bother switching on my mixer. In fact I've put it away for a while and freed up some valuable desk space! Looks a lot neater and gets 24-bit balanced audio from any source directly to the heart of my DAW without going through the usual chain of analogue outboard. It also allows my dodgy laptop to run a lot more smoothly as the audio ins and outs are converted externally by the interface freeing up more CPU power for the DAW.

I also like the monitor mix control, gives you real time, easily balanced live monitoring between the inputs and the rest of the mix which circumvents latency issues.

I bought the Lexicon Alpha to record music onto my computer as a complete beginner, and I must say it is perfect in this situation. It has inputs for electric instruments, microphone and external music players. It comes with a USB connector to the computer, and so doesn't need any power supply, and most importantly from my point of view, it comes with a version of Cubase software - albeit a toned down version with only 8 tracks and limited number of MP3s you can create - which allows you to get going straight away (as long as you've got a microphone and the instruments!). The manual provides good, clear instructions to get started, and I must admit I have no complaints whatsoever about the Lexicon Alpha. I thoroughly recommend it!

Separate lines in for guitar and mic. Monitor mix is very accurate.
Driver software is good and simple to install but packaged software Cubase 5LE is a nightmare to install/register. Finally gave up and downloaded Audacity and a few add-ons - interfaced immediately with the Alpha system and using it daily.

activation was a bit long winded as i had to register etc on the web but s/w installed fine. sound is great but you do have to set up the devices correectly before you get sound. also consider recording in Mono instead of stereo in some situations. im not very good at editing but i have made a couple of pretty decent tracks im proud to say. I would recoomend this but i can understand the bad reviews and chalk this up to a bad experience. You can adjust volumes of individual tracks via the equalisers and that works fine for me i did notice some of my tracks were a little quiet untill i did this. i dont get static, im using a JS1000 guitar and it sounds brilliant when recorded.

Also its good if you dont have an amp you could plug in your headphones and play (though a pedal of some sort). I travel a lot and use it this way sometimes. also i use an fx pedal with it which works well with my guitar but if i switch to a keyboard through the pedal it does give a little feedback so have to disconnect the pedal to record my keyboard parts.

Apart from that fantastic and ive been glued to my PC since buying it a week ago.

on the whole no problems for me personally but I have known others to have trouble - if you have a half decent knowledge of speaker systems and recording then this is perfect. (also manual does explain all this so you can pick it up this way too.)

Firstly, it took me less than 30 minutes to un-box and set up with very clear instructions. I bought it to upgrade from the internal sound-card in my Acer Windows Vista Basic laptop. I already use Cubase 5 so I was slightly worried that when installing I would have to install Cubase LE 4 but I didn't and actually had the control to install the vst pantheon reverb module to use with my current Cubase. I think I saw a review complaining about not having zero latency, not sure this is strictly possible, I definitely haven't had any noticeable latency problems.

The only thing lacking for me is a separate headphone level adjust, which would save me having to adjust monitors pre-amp. I guess this is just me being lazy though!

I would definitely suggest this product to anyone interested in an usb audio interface!
