Icon Pro Audio Platform M+
Audio and MIDI Control Surface for DAWs and Plug-Ins
MASSIVE Control, MODULAR Components, MINIMUM Footprint
Seize control of your productions with the Platform M+ DAW Controller, adding true tactile control via USB2.0 to your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), digital mixer, or digital recorder. The Platform M+ is a MIDI control surface designed for producers, engineers and musicians who want the hands on control of real faders on a mixing console PLUS the flexibility of modern "in the box" or touchscreen digital music production within a smaller physical workspace. With nine (9) full sized motorized faders, eight (8) rotary dual-function encoder knobs, backlit buttons for Mute, Solo, Automation and Transport control, a jog wheel, and access to your entire mix by banking across tracks in groups of 8 or 1 channel at a time.
CONTROL ANY DIGITAL AUDIO WORKSTATION
The Platform M+ integrates with most popular Digital Audio Workstations and digital mixers with iCon's universal DAW mode and mapping for Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, ProTools, Logic, Reason, Studio One, Bitwig, Samplitude, Adobe Audition, Digital Performer, FL Studio, Sonar, Reaper, the Touchmix-30 Pro digital mixer and Sound Devices Scorpio mixer/recorder. Mackie Control and HUI protocols provide nearly seamless interfacing with your digital mixer or your DAW's functions. But even if your recording system is not on this list, you can still map its functions with our intuitive MIDI User Define mode.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR SETUP
The compact size (40cm x 20cm x 4.5cm) of this DAW controller means it should fit comfortably into any studio setup. But, the Platform M+ is also designed to be the nerve center of your very own scalable, customizable, modular audio production system. Add the Platform D2 Backlit LCD Display Module to keep track of every parameter, channel and control value in your mix. The Platform X+ expansion modules allow you to extend your system up to 32 channels. The onboard modular ports allow the Platform M+ to connect to additional expansion modules such as the Platform B+ providing plugin control, and additional automation functionality for even greater power, versatility and creativity. With Platform M+ at its core, you can build the work environment that best suits your needs.

Hard to beat at this price.
This unit is all metal and well constructed. The pots shafts are also metal. The faders are fast and smoother now with the latest update, which seemed to correct a few bugs.
I'm running this on PC with Nuendo 8 and I'm able to customize a few buttons to open mixer windows of my choice. Read more
Transport/jog functions are quick and accurate.
Cons: on my version the led lights bleed through to other buttons and are the wrong color IMHO. The USB port could be rotated 90 degrees to allow a right angle USB cable to be used for tighter spaces. The faders could be smother on first touch but once you're using them they function well. (perhaps the updates will address this)
Other than that I really can't complain for what I paid for these units. I tried two other brands and Icon Pro was the better of the three for my current setup.

Icon pro audio ...
Service a la clientèle Icon pro Audio médiocre (presque inexistant)....
Compatibilité avec Mac os X ?! sur leur site ils disent full compatible ... mais dans la réalité elle fonctionne 1 fois sur 5..... quand elle fonctionne une petite merveille. Read more
(j'imagine que sous windows ça doit être fabuleux) bref .... quand j'achete des produit audio je m'attend a avoir du plaisir a travailler avec ce dernier. Ce qui n'ai pas le cas avec les produits Icon Pro Audio.
