When it comes to mixing in-the-box, there's nothing else like a control surface. Computers have come a long way in regards to creating music, but nothing beats the physical control and feel of real faders, buttons and knobs for recording and mixing.

If you come from the analogue domain, you'll know that producing music with a mouse and keyboard just doesn't provide the same experience. And if you've never mixed with a console before it can be a revelation, adding a whole new dimension to how you approach writing, recording, editing and producing music.

The brand new Icon Qcon Pro X Controller gives you everything you need to get hands on with your music. Featuring touch-sensitive motorised faders, dual-function rotary encoder knobs, jog-wheel and transport controls, two backlit LCD screens and LED Metering, plus a host of freely assignable buttons, the Icon Qcon Pro X brings the functions of your DAW to your fingertips.

Take Tactile Control Of Your DAW

The Qcon Pro X features 9 touch-sensitive motorized faders with 10-bit resolution and 8 rotary dual-function encoders, with the design based on replicating the functionality typically found on large format consoles. A 12 segment LED meter-bridge and a Dual 2×56 large backlit LCD Display quickly and accurately monitors 8 channels at a time, with unlimited additional banks (of 8 channels) switchable via the Bank buttons.

Interchangeable DAW specific modules allow the QCon Pro X to operate as a plug and play control surface for a variety of the most popular DAW platforms, including Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Samplitude, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Reason, Reaper, Studio One, and Bitwig. Using more than one DAW? No problem. Presets on the QCon Pro X can also be switched manually, and overlays for all supported DAWs are included in the box.

The QCon Pro X also gives you tactile control of your VST, RTAS, Direct X and AU Plugins. Use the rotary encoders to dial in EQ frequencies, Q or gain, whilst viewing the parameter values on the upper LCD screen. In the same way, the Qcon Pro X can be used to control your virtual instruments as well. There’s also a “FLIP” button, which allows you to use the faders for control of plug-in parameters, instead of the encoder knobs.

Automation of track and plugin parameters is also made easy with QCon Pro X. Write fader rides just like you would on any large format analogue console using buttons for familiar functions like GROUP, WRITE, TOUCH, LATCH and TRIM. With the QCon Pro X you get the best of both worlds; the total recall, power and flexibility of your DAW with the look, feel and functionality of a sturdy piece of hardware.
