Icon's QCon Pro X DAW controller is a multi-platform control surface for recording, mixing and editing music, which supports a host of the most popular DAWs including Cubase, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live and Studio One.

Icon have now released a new set of APPs – Auto Program Panels – which allow users to replace the default Cubase/Nuendo panel, with a dedicated panel for their DAW of choice, which screws directly into the faceplate of the QCon Pro X.

As the name suggests, the Icon APP is automatically detected by the QCon Pro X after installation. After a quick reboot of the controller, the QCon Pro X will automatically detect the panel and load into the respective DAW mode.

So, if you're using the the QCOn Pro X with Pro Tools for example, your QCon Pro X will now automatically load into Pro Tools mode each time you switch it on, complete with a set of clearly labelled shortcut identifiers for controlling your Pro Tools session.

Icon APPs are available for the following DAWs;

  • Ableton Live
  • Bitwig
  • Cubase/Nuendo
  • Logic Pro X
  • ProTools
  • Reaper
  • Reason
  • Samplitude
  • StudioOne
