NAMM 2018 – We caught up with Nadir Omowale at the Icon Pro Audio booth, to find out about the latest Icon products for 2018.
Icon Pro Audio had two exciting new products to show us at this year’s NAMM show, further expanding their popular range of music production control surfaces. The Platform B+ is a bank of 50 dedicated shortcut keys for expanding the modular Platform Series of DAW controllers, and ships with a selection of silicon overlays for using the Platform B+ with a wide range of the most popular DAWs.
Along with the Platform B+, Icon also announced the Icon OneHub a powered central USB hub for powering up to four Icon controllers from a single power supply. To find out more, check out the two videos below filmed at the Icon Pro Audio stand.

The Icon Platform B+ is a customisable bank of buttons for adding more shortcut keys to your setup. The 50 illuminated buttons give you quick access to all of the most used functions of your DAW, including cursor keys for zooming and moving about your project.
A selection of silicon overlays are also included, for using the Platform B+ with a variety of the most popular DAWs on the market – Cubase / Nuendo, LogicPro, Samplitude, Reaper, Studio One, Bitwig, Reason, ProTools, Sonar, Audition and Ableton Live. There’s also a ‘User define’ mode for creating custom mappings, so you can customise your controller to suit your workflow.
Coming Soon: Icon OneHub
The Icon OneHub is a powered USB hub that allows you to connect all of your Icon DAW Controllers to a single power supply. Up to four Icon Pro Audio devices can be powered from a single mains plug, as well as interfacing with your Mac or PC via a single USB 3.0 cable, freeing up both USB ports and mains power sockets in your studio.
The 4 x power outputs allow you to connect all of your Icon DAW Controllers and Expanders to the OneHub, such as the Icon QCon Pro X and QCon Pro XS, or the Icon Platform M+ and Platform X+. The OneHub also features 4 x USB connections (for your devices) along with a master USB connection, so you can connect all of your controllers to a single USB port on your Mac or PC.
