Lexicon IO 42 overview

  • 1Description

The I-O 42 from Lexicon is a 4 input, 2 output USB 2.0 desktop recording studio, compatible with any DAW including Pro Tools 9. It includes an interface and all the necessary software needed to start recording. Performance driven analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters ensure pristine 24-bit/96kHz audio to capture every subtle detail of your performance.

The interface features dbx 60V high-voltage, ultra-low noise microphone preamps on all four channels. The preamps run on a high-voltage supply to guarantee stability and provide you with a superior recording across a wide dynamic range.

The I-O 42 can record four tracks at once and includes four combi microphone/line inputs with switchable 48V phantom power, two balanced line outputs, two Hi-Z instrument inputs, two 1/4" high power headphone outputs, coaxial S/PDIF and MIDI I/O. Dedicated knobs and meters offer easy access to input and output levels.
