As the last big project of the year, this afternoon we installed the first Swiss ICON D-Control ES system used solely for education at SAE Zürich. SAE has already dozens of D-Controls in use around the world and we’re happy that the Swiss students can now also have a taste of the future. And when we looked at their faces during the installation, they seemed pretty happy too.
The 32-fader black beauty will be used in the main studio to give the students an early start on the emerging industry standard for tracking and mixing. The D-Control will complement perfectly the several other HD and LE systems at SAE allowing the students a real-world workflow of productions which might start on an Mbox 2 Mini and end in the ICON control room.
