The Avid ICON integrated console is a total audio production environment that redefines the state of the art in recording and mixing technology. After only few short years in the market, it has been installed in thousands of studios worldwide – including leading Swiss music, post and broadcast studios – and has become the preferred choice for high-end installations. Contact us for a comprehensive list of Swiss and worldwide users.
Featuring a choice of the flagship D-Control worksurface or the all-new medium-format D-Command worksurface plus a Pro Tools|HD Accel system as its DSP mixing and processing engine and modular Pro Tools|HD I/O interfaces and peripherals, ICON is the first truly integrated console solution of its kind. ICON enables operators to accomplish every aspect of a project within a single environment while enjoying the familiar feel of a professional console. From recording, editing, mixing, and processing to combining audio and video and delivering a final product, ICON delivers superior results and unmatched workflow efficiency.
Call us for a demo in our showroom where we have both 32-fader D-Control ES and 24fader D-Command ES ready for a spin.
The flagship ICON tactile worksurface, D-Control ES combines the feel of a large-format console with a level of control and added Pro Tools functionality that can only be accessed with an ICON system. D-Control ES includes a comprehensive array of touch sensitive controls and offers a wide range of visual mixing feedback. With a dedicated center section for most-used controls to stay in the sweet spot, per-channel control over all processing functions and routing, global automation capabilities, and full studio and control room monitoring and communications facilities, D-Control ES arms operators with an unprecedented level of hands-on control over their projects. The D-Control ES worksurface employs an intuitive console layout. The worksurface is expandable to 80 physical faders/channels strips by adding 16-channel Fader Modules. D-Control ES’s ergonomic design enables full control from the channel strips with minimal paging, while its wealth of LCD displays, LED rings, and bar graphs facilitate critical visual session feedback.
Features – Slim, sleek worksurface expandable to 80 physical faders/channel strips by adding optional 16-channel Fader Modules; D-Control ES’s base configuration includes the Main Unit and a single Fader Module with 16 physical faders strips – High-quality, touch-sensitive motorized P&G faders – Six touch-sensitive, multi-purpose rotary encoders per channel strip with multi-color LED rings that display encoder position and metering. Each rotary encoder includes a 6-character alphanumeric, multi-color LCD display for function parameters in addition to one display for the channel scribble strip. – 29 illuminated buttons per channel strip facilitate selection of channel modes and attributes – Inline console mode enables control of input and monitor levels from a single channel strip – Includes a centrally located Focus Channel Strip – Two bar-graph meters per channel and eight Master section bar-graph meters (configurable to display output, input, and gain reduction using discreet colors) – Comprehensive monitor, talkback, communication and listenback control section – Dedicated center section control panels for EQ and dynamics plug-in editing – Includes XMON remote, rack-mounted analog I/O audio monitor and communications system capable of monitoring in up to 7.1 surround with complete, non-destructive AFL/PFL solo – Advanced Surround Panner mixing option with integrated touch screen and touch-sensitive joysticks – Patent-pending, high-speed Ethernet protocol connects console worksurface to Pro Tools|HD Accel DSP mix engine, providing 200x more bandwidth than MIDI-based controllers – Includes uniquely styled ergonomic console frame – VESA standard TFT mounting arm for flat-panel display (display not included)
D-Command ES, the mid-size controller of the ICON family, packs amazing control and ICON-exclusive Pro Tools functionality into a compact work surface. Featuring dedicated, center section panels for EQ and dynamics plug-in editing, as well as per-channel control over many processing functions, routing, and automation modes, D-Command ES provides operators powerful hands-on command over their projects – also for a studio with limited space. Similar to D-Control ES, the D-Command ES worksurface employs an intuitive console layout. The D-Command ES Main Unit features an easily accessible, central control section with monitoring and communications controls, and includes eight channel faders, which are expandable up to 24 faders with a 16-channel Fader Module. D-Command ES’s ergonomic design enables control of multiple session parameters via the channel strips and provides LCD displays, LED rings, and bar-graph meters to facilitate important visual session feedback. Like it’s larger sibling, D-Command ES supports revolutionary Custom Faders, enabling free mapping of channels, plug-in parameters etc. on touch-sensitive rotary controllers and faders. Already Custom Faders alone gives the operator a massive speed advantage over other controllers not in the ICON class.
