Questions about this item:

Shopper  Hello, 4.3.12 Is this the updated lexicon I-O 42 ( as the Ionix I-O42 by Lexicon is considered a legacy product) and 4 software apps/plug ins are included now Cubase LE, Pantheon II Reverb, Toontracks EZ Drummer Lite and a Synth app XILX3 SE (or SC) Its listed on lexicon's website , and also ? drivers are they on a disk or d-loaded from Lexicon? Final ? if software opened is it considered unreturnable (the Lexicon I-O 42 entirely?) or ? Thanks
Andrew R  I'm afraid I'm not sure I understand your question. The manufacturer's website still shows this unit as available, no indication that it has become a "legacy product" on the the product page. It's possible that they have discontinued production, but no notice is provided on the product page. Software appears to be provided on disc, though the manufacturer appears to offer updated drivers if required. Once opened, I do not believe that this unit would be returnable.
