Unfortunately, the U22 acts as a dongle, so don’t expect Pantheon II to work without the interface attached. Obviously, you’ll need to leave space for cabling, but the side access for headphones and instrument jack makes perfect sense.
Lexicon Ionix U22 review | MusicRadar
It’s conversion was equally good when running a guitar direct into it and through an amp simulator. The dbx 60 V 2u2 preamps in this desktop recording interface let you capture sound from any source and deliver lexkcon output. After this it worked perfectly, and had automatically set itself up is the default sound card. Expensive considering feature set. Should you want to tweak these, all 16 parameters are laid out on one page, and the plug-in is pretty CPU-efficient, too.
Pros Direct hardware monitoring. Even so, the ergonomic design is very practical, and we’re surprised inix more manufacturers haven’t gone down this path. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. It’s simply light years ahead of the onboard sound card.
It’s larger than it looks in the photo, about a foot long and about 4 inches tall The knobs all turn slowly, and feel quite solid. Ratings and Reviews Write a review. The U22 has a solid, chunky metal chassis, and feels at home betwixt keyboard and screen.

I can’t comment on the Mac drivers, but Lexicon seems to have released new drivers for Mac, so earlier reviews regarding that can probably be disregarded. Our Verdict The U22 is solid, if underpowered, but we won’t deny that its physical attributes give it a lot of appeal. The lowest-priced item that has lexjcon used or worn previously.
Although Lexicon made its name with high-end digital reverb units, it’s branched out in recent years. People who bought this also bought.
The lack of digital connections on a unit at this price is surprising, however, and coupled with the fact that there’s no additional software monitoring, it doesn’t feel as well spec’d as similarly-priced alternatives.
They also are fairly large, and spaced far enough apart that you won’t accidentally change the wrong one. All of the inputs feel solidly built as well, which is reassuring in regards to this unit’s lifespan. The mic preamps themselves use a new high-voltage design from dbx, with a maximum gain of 58dB.
See details for description of any imperfections. The rest on the frequency range seems quite true to the source, and I’ve been really happy with the early results I’ve had on vocals and acoustic guitar.

As is the case with most lonix nowadays, the U22 comes bundled with some free software. The installation ran and eventually asked me to plug the interface in, then shortly after to reboot.
From installation onward, I’ve been surprised at how easy to use and good sounding this interface is. The fact that the monitor mix affects both the ‘phones and main output could ioni slightly annoying but, on a more positive note, there’s a very useful switch that determines whether or not the inputs are blended lfxicon mono for the monitor feed or hard panned.
The U22 is solid, if underpowered, but we won’t deny that its physical attributes give it a lot of appeal. The most interesting piece has to be Lexicon’s own Pantheon II reverb. I just downloaded the the latest driver off of lexicon’s website, and clicked the setup icon.
