Lexicon Omega and Loopy HD
Hey, I started testing the Lexicon Omega interface with Loopy HD on my ipad 2 and have a couple of questions :-)
1 - I'm using a 3rd party Camera Connection Kit and when connected, the setup works fine for a while, but after maybe 10 minutes I get the good old 'This accessory is not Supported" message flashing up. The setup continues to work fine though, for another 10 minutes or so, before the lexicon omega connection disappears. As soon as I disconnect and reconnect the cck everything's fine again. This process seems to happen exactly the same over and over again, which is fine for home recording, but not live.
So on to my first question - does anybody know of a 3rd party cck that works flawlessly? I haven't tested the apple one and am not sure whether it works properly either (I don't fancy splashing out on one unless absolutely necessary) :-)
I have also used this 3rd party cck with an M-Audio Keystation 49 and this has exactly the same problem with connectivity over time, except that when disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard and cck, it's difficult to get the ipad to recognise the keyboard for ages.
2) This question is a bit more strange.
I'm connecting an acoustic guitar via Line and a Shure Beta 57 for vocals through the lexicon and the cck into the ipad.
After adjusting the input of the guitar on the lexicon to just under peak-levels, the input on Loopy HD shows a nice hot signal. It also records a nice hot signal. All good :-)
After adjusting the input of the mic on the lexicon to just under peak levels (pad switch set to off) the input on Loopy HD seems to show a nice hot signal. However, the recorded audio is very very quiet.... The waveforms are tiny and after recording Loopy HD automatically sets the db of the track to max to try and push the volume to an acceptable level.
This would make sense to me if the live input on loopy didn't show nice and high, or if the input on the lexicon was too low, but neither seem to be the case.
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance,
