Take control of your DAW with the Icon QCon Pro X and Icon Platform Series USB control surfaces

When you're recording, mixing and mastering your music, nothing beats the feel and control of working with a real desk. And with Icon Pro Audio's latest DAW controllers and fader expanders, you can have the best of both worlds, with hands-on control over your favourite DAW software and plugins.

No matter which DAW you're using, whether it's Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton Live, Nuendo, Bitwig or Reaper, the Icon QCon Pro X and Platform M+ are set up and ready to go at the touch of a button. You can even control and automate your plugins too, and as the faders are motorised, all of your settings will be recalled when you load up each project.

Having creative and tactile control over your DAW changes the way you write, record and mix your music. Fader movements becomes easier and more precise, plug-in control becomes more creative and hands-on, and the ability to program your favourite control functions makes everything faster and more convenient. In fact, your workflow will feel more natural and allow you to focus on your music rather than your DAW and mouse.

And if you need more than 8 channels? No problem, as the Icon QCon Pro X and the Icon Platform M+ now feature channel expanders, allowing you to control up to 32 channels. Customise your setup to perfectly suit your workflow, whether you're in a recording studio, or want to add tactile control to your mobile recording and mixing setup.
