About the Lexicon IO42

Brilliantly designed, the Lexicon IO42 4x2 USB 2.0 Desktop Recording Studio is compatible with any DAW, including Pro Tools 9 and 10. 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 all 4 channels, the IO42 is more than equipped to provide professional recordings that keep your music sounding at 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 IO42 can record four tracks at once and includes 4 combi-jack mic/line inputs with +48V phantom power, 2 TRS balanced line outputs, 2 hi-Z instrument inputs, 2 high power 1/4" headphone outputs, S/PDIF 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.
