Icon Platform B+ – Take Control Of Your DAW
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, FL Studio, Digital Performer and Ableton Live. There’s also a ‘User define’ mode for creating custom mappings, so you can customise your controller to perfect suit your preferred method of working, tailoring each button to control all of your most used parameters when you’re recording and creating music.
Control surfaces are perfect for adding classic, hardware style recording to ‘in the box’ mixing. Icon’s range feature motorised faders for easy project recall, from the full size QCon Pro X (expandable in banks of further 8 motorised faders via the QCon Pro XS), to the Platform M+ range, designed for mobile recording and smaller setups.
The Platform B+ can connect directly to the Platform M+ via the ports on the back of the unit, and can also be used standalone. So, if you just need a bank of 50 button shortcuts for your DAW at a low price, the Platform B+ may be the ideal addition to your studio.
