iCON Pro Audio QCon Pro G2 universal control surface

High-quality, professional-grade musical equipment provider iCON Pro Audio is proudto announce availability of its QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station and QCon EX G2 USB-MIDIController Station — namely, next-generation versions of its full-featured, eight-channel universal controlsurface (with Mackie Control and HUI emulation to support most major DAWs) and accompanyingextender, which adds an additional eight channels (and allows the system to be expanded to 32 channelswith three extenders)

As an all-new, next-generation version of its full-featured, eight-channel universal control surface, iCON Pro Audio’s appropriately-namedQCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station sports nine motorised faders — eight channel faders, plus one master fader, each 100mm inlength and featuring 10-bit resolution, allowing for small and accurate adjustments during recording and mixing endeavours; eight multi-purpose push encoders, each surrounded by 11 LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) which light up to indicate relative position of rotation so usersdo not need to take their eyes (and ears) off the ball by glancing back at the host computer; 78 assignable buttons — includingilluminated channel Rec (record), Solo, Mute, and Sel (select), as well as six illuminated (Play, Stop, Rec, Rewind, FastForward, and Loop)Transport buttons; a Jog shuttle wheel; and two External Controls connections on 1/4-inch TRS jacks for receiving (optional) SPD-01 footpedals to activate selected functions. Furthermore, 12-segment LED level meters are provided for each channel, and a large backlit LCD(Liquid Crystal Display) shows channel names and parameter values. Additionally, a 12-segment LED display is also provided for SMPTE(Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) or MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) beat clock information.

iCON Pro Audio’s QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station supports Mackie Control and HUI emulation to control its user’s favourite DAW(Digital Audio Workstation) and comes complete with overlays for most popular DAWs, including Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, AppleLogic Pro, Avid Pro Tools, BandLab Technologies Cakewalk by BandLab (formerly Cakewalk SONAR), Bitwig Studio, Cockos REAPER,Image Line FL Studio, MAGIX Samplitude, MOTU Digital Performer, PreSonus Studio One, Propellerhead Reason, and last, but not least,Steinberg Cubase and Nuendo.
Not content with ‘universal’ DAW compatibility, iCON Pro Audio also provides proprietary iMapTM self-MIDI-mapping software for the user-defined (MIDI Learn) mode, meaning users could, for example, assign those motorised faders to control specific virtual instrument oreffect plug-in functions; freely riding them while playing an orchestral strings sample library can create more realistic recordedperformances and arrangements. Almost anything is possible!

Perfectly class-compliant with Windows (XP, Vista, 7/8/10), and Mac (OS X 10.10 Yosemite and older, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, macOS 10.12Sierra, macOS 10.13 High Sierra), and featuring a high-speed USB 2.0 connection, the QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station isexpandable to 32 channels using three USB 2.0 connection-equipped QCon EX G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station extenders — equally class-compliant, of course.

Coinciding with the all new, next-generation QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station’s availability, the also-available 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. Furthermore, it is outfitted with eight motorised channel faders, eight multi-purpose push encoders, and two foot pedal connectors; again, 12-segment LED level meters are provided for each channel, and alarge backlit LCD shows channel names and parameter values — replicating its QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station sibling’s eightchannel 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,perhaps owners could consider expanding its collective connectivity capabilities courtesy of iCON Pro Audio’s OneHub, providing powerfor 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 ProAudio’s all-new, next-generation version of its full-featured, eight-channel universal control surface surely is a flexible force to bereckoned with — which will seriously enhance anyone’s workflow, whatever their favourite DAW might be! 

iCON Pro Audio’s QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station and QCon EX G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station are availablethrough the company’s growing global network of distributors (https://iconproaudio.com/distributors/),respectively priced at $549.99 USD/€499.00 EUR and $499.99 USD/€399.00 EUR.
