Seize control of your productions with the Icon Platform M+ DAW Controller, adding true tactile control via USB2.0 to your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and production system
MASSIVE Control, MODULAR Components, MINIMUM Footprint
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.
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, all the primary functions of your DAW are now at your fingertips.
CONTROL YOUR DAW AND PLUGINS
The Icon Platform M+ integrates with most popular Digital Audio Workstations. Mapping presets for Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, ProTools, Logic, Reason, Studio One, Bitwig, Samplitude and Reaper are loaded at our factory. Mackie Control or HUI protocols provide seamless interfacing with your DAW's functions.
But even if your preferred DAW is not on this list, you can still map its functions with our intuitive MIDI learn mode. The Icon Platform M+ also offers tactile control of your VST, RTAS, Direct X and AU Plugins so you can dial in EQ frequencies, Q, gain and other effect parameters with the rotary encoder knobs.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR SETUP
The compact size (15.75 x 7.8 x 1.75) 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 D Backlit LCD Display Module to keep track of every parameter, channel and control value in your mix.
A variety of additional expansion modules will be available soon, adding more faders, knobs and pads; providing even greater power, versatility and creativity. With Platform M, you can build the control surface that 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.
