Omega Desktop Recording Studio
Omega Studio Hardware
Differentiating itself from standard computer I/O boxes which are typically based on a patch-bay paradigm, the Omega 8x4x2 USB I/O mixer is based on a mixer paradigm and includes input, output and mixing functions that support a variety of tracking/monitoring applications while requiring no additional mixing hardware.
The Omega I/O mixer provides 8 inputs which are assignable in pairs to any of 4 simultaneous record channels featuring ultra-transparent, high-resolution analog to digital converters to capture your performance with pristine 24-bit quality. Two of the inputs feature extremely low-noise dbx mic-preamps with 48 volt phantom power and TRS insert points. Four TRS active balanced line inputs accept up to +22dBu signals to allow interfacing to either unbalanced or professional high-output level balanced equipment. Included is an S/PDIF input combined with an additional DAC for zero-latency, direct monitoring of the S/PDIF source to allow simultaneous tracking of analog and digital sources. A high-impedance instrument input is conveniently accessible on the front panel. The Omega I/O mixer provides a peak indicator for each analog input as well as an assignable bar graph meter for signal level monitoring. By monitoring the signal at the A/D converters, it avoids the problems with software-only level monitoring that can miss clipping and ruin your track. The Omega I/O mixer also includes a fully opto-isolated MIDI input to ensure that there is no annoying ground loop hum or MIDI talk-through noise common with many I/O boxes and sound cards. MIDI output has rock-solid synchronization to USB frame rate to support applications requiring critical sync.Recording Studio Includes
Pro Tracks Plus(TM) is an easy-to-use, comprehensive 32-track recording suite that includes all the modules you need to track, edit, process, sequence and mix your masterpiece.

Pantheon Reverb Plug In

Awesome unit

Fantastic unit. Almost noiseless, preamps are fine, very easy to use, not hard to setup, peak meters are very helpful. Layout of knobs/meters is intuitive. Seems a very solid unit that will last a long time. Small foot print. Headphone monitoring is great. No complaints at all. Currently achieving a more professional sound with this unit than at studio's we've been to in the past. Recording software bundled with seemed ok but you can't do EQ with it so we got sonar 3 instead.

I couldn't be happier with this purchase


from USA

I was first exposed to this recording system at a jazz concert by the Merriman Trio in South Bend, In. in which they used it to do a live, direct to PC recording of the show. I was amazed how simple it was to set up and work with and couldn't believe it DIDN'T cost. A few weeks later I viewed the DVD of the concert with the audio from the Omega synced to the video shot of the show and was blown away with the quality. I was looking for a desktop system to do guitar, vocal, and MIDI tracks of song ideas with my PC that was cost effective, easy to use and not some little known, little supported product. (Knowing how quickly things change in this industry). It only took an evening to set up, install the software (CuBase LE) and learn my way around the interface and software. I recommend this system for anyone looking for a super-affordable, easy to use desktop recording system that allows you to capture those magic moments when the musical inspiration hits!
