Question
Dear Sir,

I would like to buy the Lexicon Omega to record it with iPad. According to the manufacturer, The Lexicon Omega supports up to 4 individual tracks recording simultaneously at any given time.

Does it mean that if I connect my microphone and an instrument and then record, my vocal and the sound of my instrument will come out as two individual tracks at the same time?

Thank you.

Answer
Hey Mike, that's exactly what it means man. You can record up to 4 tracks at a time in this manner. I'm not sure how big of a project you can build, but you can definitely get some work done! Hope that helps man, if you need anything else, just let me know.
Peace - J.

I specialize in Macintosh recording systems on OS X & am well versed in most of the available software titles relative to the platform. I can answer most questions about home recording in general such as: Mic placement, recording/mixing/mastering techniques, control room set up, acoustics & acoustical treatment & choosing the right equipment for specific recording applications. I do not answer PC related questions, or questions pertaining CD/DVD copying or ripping.

Experience

I have been working in studios for over 20 years both as a recurring artist playing on my own recordings & as a session musician, engineer & producer. I run a Mac based studio from my home, use mostly Logic or Garageband. I'll use Garageband for writing & Pre-Prod & move the project over to Logic afterwards. I also have experience using Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Ableton Live & many others. My preferences are Logic & Pro Tools & as such my area of expertise is focussed in these two apps. I'm also an IT guy, sysadmin & electronics technician so can help with technical questions relating to studio operation & maintenance.
