LOS ANGELES (August 26, 2016) - Icon Pro Audio is proud to announce the Platform M control surface. The all-new Platform M is a MIDI control surface designed for producers, engineers and musicians who want the hands on control of a mixing console and the flexibility of modern “in the box” digital music production within a smaller physical workspace.
Featuring nine (9) touch-sensitive motorized faders with 10-bit resolution and 8 dual-functions encoder knobs, the Platform M integrates with most popular Digital Audio Workstations. It operates as a plug and play control surface for Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Samplitude, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Reason, Reaper, Studio One, and Bitwig via USB2.0. Tactile hands on control of your VST, RTAS, Direct X and AU Plugins are easily within reach. Dial in EQ frequencies, Q or gain with the rotary encoders.
The compact size (40cm x 20cm x 4.5cm) of this DAW controller means it fits comfortably into any studio setup. The Platform M is also designed to be the nerve center of your very own scalable, customizable, modular audio production system. MAP $349.99.
Platform D is the modular display unit for the Platform M control surface. The large backlit LCD display helps you keep track of each parameter, track, and control value in your mix.
