ASIO4ALL with Lexicon Omega & Windows 10

I just purchased a PC with Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz 8GB 1TB Windows 10 to dedicate for a recording computer and I’ve got a couple of issues and questons.

  1. Can I upgrade to Cubase 8 with out loading all the previous versions, or do I have to load them first?

  2. I’m using a Lexicon Omega interface and each time I’ve tried to do any recording now it tells me “The ASIO Driver is not working”. I’ve done some research and installed “ASIO4ALL” and I still can’t get any of the ASIO drivers to run. So what do I need to do to get my ASIO driver(s) working. I’m concerned that this may be a compatibility issue with “Windows 10”?

  3. I got a notification I can upgrade my Cubase LE for $9.99 and I’m not exactly sure what that gives me?

Your suggestions and help are greatly appreciated.



  1. No, you don’t need to install previous Cubase versions. Install Cubase LE 8 only.

  2. Try to test your system via LatencyMon to get some info.

  3. For example more effects, more sounds, also possibility to use up to 8 Insert effects per Channel.

Thanks for the information,

  1. I believe I’ve loaded LE-8 but I’ll double check.

  2. I’m assuming Latency Mon is “safe” to install and use to use?

  3. I don’t see how using additional effects will help, as I’m NOT getting any signal from the Lexicon Omega to the Cubase Software. To test it, I simply plugged a guitar into the input jack on the front of the Lexicon Omega, I get analog sound into the Lexicon Omega and I can monitor it with my headphones plugged into the the Lexicon Omega, however I don’t get ANY signal input to the Cubase mixer/channels. I’ve also downloaded the latest version of the Lexicon Omega driver.

Thanks again for your help.


  1. Yes. Used many times already.

  2. Please check official Steinberg YouTube channel and Cubase 7 Quick Start video tutorials. The basic settings is explained in the very 1st video.

OK, got it working. Apparently the file for LE-8 never fully downloaded, so I downloaded it with a better connection and got it installed on the new PC. I did get it to record, so I think I’m good, I just need to set my in and out channels more specifically.

Thanks also for reminding me of the Steinberg channel on YouTube. I haven’t used my Cubase in a while so I’m sure watching a couple of good videos will be a great help.
