ICON Sales Come to a Close

In early August, we shared news with our resellers that September 4, 2013 will be the end-of-sale date for the ICON D-Control™ ES and D-Command® ES control surfaces. We are reaching out to thank you for your support and help in making ICON the best selling large-format console of all time, and making ICON your go-to choice for post and music mixing. We want to reassure you that we will continue to support these products for at least five more years through September 4, 2018.

That waveform display looks rather Harrison MPC4-D/Trion/Air24/7-ish...

Nuendo "borrowed" that too in their mixer views. It's actually quite useful with a long enough window to display it. It's certainly yet another visual cue that can be great in many situations. I'm looking forward to this.

 

I'm wondering if they'll keep their Artist range. I would think so as the S3 should be substantially more expensive. I think a small S3L is around 18k list, so one would think the controller by itself would be about a third maybe (?). So at 6+k that's a reasonable step up from the Artist series with better quality faders etc, which makes me think they'll keep them for the masses.

 

It also makes me wonder roughly where they'll price the S6 in its smallest configuration. But well know soon enough.
