Mice, trackpads, and touch screen are fine, but nothing beats having full hands-on control during a DAW session. A few months ago we had a chance to try a pre-production unit of a new affordable controller from iCon and we were looking forward to its release. Well, today is the day. iCON Pro Audio has finally announced the availability of its QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station and QCon EX G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station.
As an all-new, next-generation version of its full-featured, eight-channel universal control surface, iCON Pro Audio’s appropriately-named QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station sports nine motorised faders, eight multi- purpose push encoders, and much more.
It supports Mackie Control and HUI emulation to control its user’s favourite DAW and comes complete with overlays for most popular DAWs (including Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, Apple Logic Pro, etc).
Coinciding with the all new, next-generation QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station’s availability, the QCon EX G2 USB- MIDI Controller Station similarly facilitates intuitive tactile control over sessions. Set levels, fine-tune EQs and effects, record automation, punch in and out of recordings — all at a user’s fingertips.
It is outfitted with eight motorised channel faders, eight multi- purpose push encoders, and two foot pedal connectors. 12-segment LED level meters are provided for each channel, and a large backlit LCD shows channel names and parameter values — replicating its QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station sibling’s eight channel strips, in other words.
With a fully-expanded, 32-channel QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station and QCon EX G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station system in place, owners could consider expanding its collective connectivity capabilities courtesy of iCON Pro Audio’s OneHub, providing power for four devices on a single plug while also acting as a USB (Universal Serial Bus) hub for a QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station and (up to) three QCon EX G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station expanders.
Either way, with or without any accompanying expanders, iCON Pro Audio’s all-new, next-generation version of its full-featured, eight-channel universal control surface surely is a flexible force to be reckoned with — which will seriously enhance anyone’s workflow, whatever their favourite DAW might be!
