Brilliantly designed, the I-ONIX U82S recording interface fits where it makes the most sense, between your keyboard and monitor. Lexicon understands you care passionately about your music, and that it's more than just a pastime, which inspired them to create the I¢ONIX U82S, putting all monitor and input level controls at your fingertips.
Featuring dbx microphone preamps on all eight channels, the I¢ONIX series recording interfaces are more than equipped to provide professional recordings that keep your music sounding its best. The preamps run on a high-voltage supply to guarantee stability and provide you with a superior recording across a wide dynamic range. Performance driven A/D - D/A converters ensure pristine 24-bit/96kHz audio to capture every subtle detail of your performance.
The included Pantheon II VST/AU reverb plug-in features 6 reverb types with 16 adjustable parameters, as well as 35 factory presets that range from Vocal to Live Sound and Special Effects. It's easy to complete your mix and make your music sound its best with these exquisitely rich, full reverbs that have made Lexicon famous.
Also included with the Lexicon I¢ONIX U82S is a software suite featuring Steinberg's Cubase LE4 and Toontrack EZdrummer Lite.

I have a Lexicon Omega that I have been quite fond of. I know, it seems that people love to bash the Omega but I must say that I have been pleased with it. It was clean, and it served me well for the last five years. In fact, it produced my only commercial CD, which listeners have praised the clarity of. When I went on to attempt bigger and better things, I quickly ran out of preamps, and so I set out f\to find another unit with more preamps. I bought a Presponus Firestudio Project, but the drivers wouldn't work with my 64 bit OS, so I returned that. Luckily, Lexicon was hitting the market with the Ionix U82S, and I waited for it to actually hit the shelves. I hooked it up with great enthusiasm, only to find that my mics were too quiet unless I turned the gain up to around the 9 to 9.5 range. Then they suddenly came alive. One slight increase of the gain knob, and now they were too loud and distorting. Yep, every channel was the same - the usable range was between 9.5 and 10 - way too narrow and not workable. The overall output of the entire unit was extremely quiet as well, nothing like my trusted old Omega. I did side by side comparisons with my Omega, using Audio Technica AT4040's, and the Omega simply blew it away. I returned my U82S, and am still hunting for something to replace it with. I also noticed that my Omega has Inserts, whereas the U82S doesn't. Not sure what they were thinking there.
