Lexicon IO82

This portable recording interface from Lexicon, makers of studio-standard hardware reverbs since the 1970s, is designed to bring pro studio sound quality to the traveling recordist and musician at an affordable price point. The Lexicon IO82 records eight channels simultaneously at 24-bit / 96 kHZ directly into your Mac or PC platform. Compatible with all leading DAWs, including Pro Tools 9 & 10.

Studio Quality, Bedroom Price

The Lexicon IO82 combines eight DBX low-noise mic preamps with quality 24-bit ADA converters to provide a natural and accurate signal path between your instrument and computer. With 58 dB of headroom and +48V phantom power, this recording interface can accommodate a wide range of dynamic and condenser microphones for virtually any recording application: recording full bands & ensembles, tracking drums, capturing stereo field material, and even podcasting. Two dedicated Hi-Z jacks on the side allow you to record your electric guitar or bass without the need for a mic, or to better isolate sound sources

Tilt-back Design

The unique design and compact form factor of the IO82 is designed to rest on your desktop under your monitor or in front of your laptop without obstructing the screen. The tilted-back design puts the level meters, knobs, and inputs right in front of your hands and eyes in a natural position. Front-, side-, and back-mounted ins and outs help to keep your cables organized.

Included Software Suite

Lexicon thought of everything with its free software bundle, which includes Cubase LE multitrack software for recording, a Lexicon reverb plug-in for post processing, and 2 virtual instruments for drums and synthesizer to spark your creativity when the band isn’t around.
