    Just completed the setup. It was pretty simple.
    The difference in sound reproduction is pretty good, but what I love about it is the cleanness of the signal. The only word I can think of is pristine. Just that alone is a huge step up from the internal sound card in my computer.
    Not sure I will like Cubase. I'm used to Cakewalk and Reaper. Compared to them, it's ease of use is not even close. For me anyway, there is nothing intuitive about it.
    But I love the Pantheon Reverb , and I'm going to play around with it for a bit and see how we get along.
    Overall, I'm pretty pumped. I think my music is going to take a big step up in terms of sound quality.
    Many thanks to those here who advised through an earlier thread. Much appreciated.

    think of Cubase as a Windows word program for audio .... that's how it is designed.

    I knew there was something different. Now that you mention that, I can definitely see it.

    As mentioned previously ( by me I think) that card in your computer wasn't meant to be used for audio production. It's there as a way to provide audio for gaming, internet streaming audio, etc.

    What you are hearing is a difference based on several things - the first is the ADDA converters, which are of a better quality than the stock internal cards, along with the preamps, which, again, are much better than what that silly little sound card offers.
    While still not considered to be of a "pro caliber", the Lexicon is still a big step up from what you were using.

    Have fun.
