Lexicon I-O Pro Tools 12 Compatible

No artist likes to be told what to do - what tools to use and what tools you can’t use. Lexicon understands your passion and it inspires us to innovate. Brilliantly designed, the I·O Desktop Recording Series is compatible with any DAW, including Pro Tools 10 through 12. Now this innovative hardware design meets the software capability of any creative passion.

Featuring newly designed dbx® 60V high-voltage, ultra-low noise mic preamps on both channels, the I-O|22 is 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 I-O|22 can record two tracks at once and includes 2 combi-jack mic/line inputs with +48V phantom power, 2 TRS balanced line outputs, a hi-Z instrument input, a 1/4" high power headphone output, and MIDI I/O. Dedicated knobs and meters offer easy access to input and output levels and locking combi-jacks make sure that a connection is not lost in the middle of a performance.
