Lexicon® Releases 64-bit Windows and Mac PowerPC Drivers For the I·ONIX Series of USB 2.0 Desktop Recording Interfaces
August 21, 2009
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Lexicon®, a Harman International Company (NYSE-HAR), today announced it has released new Windows and Mac software drivers for the I∙ONIX series of Desktop Recording Interfaces. With the new 64-bit Windows driver, these interfaces now operate seamlessly on computers running Windows 64-bit XP and Vista operating systems. The new Mac driver improves performance and now supports all Mac computers operating on OS X 10.4.9 or higher regardless of whether they are based on a PowerPC or Intel processor.
The I∙ONIX series feature newly designed dbx® microphone preamps on all analog inputs. The preamps are driven by a 60V high-voltage supply to guarantee stability and deliver superior recordings across a wide dynamic range. Ultra high-definition converters ensure pristine 24-bit/96kHz audio. The result is remarkably clear and transparent inputs that will capture every subtle detail of your performance.
Each of the three I∙ONIX models allows for a different level of recording capability. The U22 can record two channels simultaneously and includes two analog mic/line inputs with +48V phantom power, two balanced line outputs, a Hi-Z instrument input, a ¼” high-power headphone output, and MIDI I/O. The U42S records four analog and two digital channels simultaneously, and the U82S can record eight analog and two digital channels. In addition, the U42S and U82S include four and eight mic/line inputs respectively, stereo S/PDIF, two instrument inputs, and two ¼” headphone outputs. Each interface is bundled with Cubase LE 4 and the Pantheon II reverb plug-in, providing everything you need to start recording.
Speaking about the newly updated drivers for the I∙ONIX Desktop Recording Interfaces, Director of Marketing for Lexicon Randy Garrett stated, “The new I∙ONIX series provides professional quality hardware and software for musicians to create exceptional recordings. Lexicon is committed to making these great products even better by listening to our customers and making continuous improvements such as the addition of these new drivers.”
