Rich Nevens, Digidesignâ€™s director of professional console sales, told us, â€œWe are very proud that in just over three years, ICON systems have become the consoles of choice in over 2,200 music and post-production facilities worldwide. This growing family of dedicated users continues to be one of our greatest development resources, providing feedback that has already helped us to deliver a number of key hardware and software enhancements for the ICON family. Today it is with our usersâ€™ feedback in mind that we are pleased to offer yet another important evolution in the ongoing development of the ICON range. The ICON D-Control ES balances style with enhancements that provide greater visual feedback and improved ergonomics. We are tremendously excited to introduce ICON DControl ES to the professional recording community.â€�
Like existing ICON systems, the new ICON D-Control ES boasts the same unparalleled integration with industry-standard Pro Tools HD software, including complete recall of all session parameters, routing, and plug-ins. Digidesign will continue to offer the D-Control in its original blue colour scheme, and with the addition of the D-Control ES, users will be able to choose between two aesthetic options that both offer the full range of ICON features. In addition, current ICON D-Control owners will be able to obtain a kit to convert their D-Control into a D-Control ES.
