“[QCon Pro X] Automation and plug-in control.

– Being able to move 2 faders at once. Full control of DAW
– The recording, mixing and mastering is done faster.
– The meter bridge is something that no one else uses and it gives us extra abilities like quicker adjustment.  It truly has the feel of analog.
– The way it is put together is very nice and gives the studio a beefier look too.
– I already have a couple interns that are learning on it and wouldn’t want to use anything else when it comes to buying their own controller.”

“I travel a lot and I go everywhere. Never do I leave my home with out my favorite keyboard to hit the road with, the iKeybaord 4 by Icon. The iKeybaord 4 is most convenient to my needs because it can fit anywhere in my luggage and I can go to work on a airplane ride or in the back seat of a SUV. Thanks to iCON, they have helped me keep the work flow going throughout my days and nights. Never leave home with out your favorite keyboard!”
