New for NAMM 2016: Platform M by Nadir @ Icon - Global | Jan 22, 2016 | Articles | 21 comments New stuff! Platform M Control Surface come check it out. #NAMM Booth #6714 #iconglobalaudio 21 Comments Andrew Lipnick on February 14, 2016 at 12:21 am Very interested in this product! I’m looking for a midi fader control surface to access a bank of inputs on a live digital mixer. The mixer I have does not support HUI however it does support CC controller mapping. Does the Platform M allow you to assign CC #’s to it’s faders and buttons? Also when will it be available and what is the expected street price? Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on February 15, 2016 at 4:04 am Checking with the engineers specifically about CC Controller mapping. Will let you know asap.

Nadir @ Icon - Global on May 12, 2016 at 5:04 pm Currently we are on schedule for a late June/early July release, but a single specific date is not available for each region. Mike on May 11, 2016 at 9:58 am Any news on whether you can map cc`s to the faders? What about the pro x? Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on May 12, 2016 at 6:02 pm Sorry, Mike. We’re not sure what you mean by “cc’s”. Can you elaborate a bit, so we can answer effectively? Log in to Reply timondeks on March 9, 2016 at 7:06 pm This looks great.Does the Platfrom M feature layers like on the IControls Pro? Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on March 23, 2016 at 4:39 am Sorry for the delayed reply. There is no layer function on Platform M. But we have provided a user define mode as well as DAW modes for several different DAWs. Log in to Reply Buchanan on March 21, 2016 at 7:40 pm Finally what we all been looking for. A portable control surface with motorized faders. Only one probably here. Icon have a opportunity to make this one goergous piece to be taken serious. It’s a very great size and looks descent but can need some dressing up for a serious attractions. Why don’t yall add the blue led lights around the nobs and the same quality buttons with multi colored led lights like their are on the QCon Pro X???? Instead of a basic straight lines dividing the channels/tracks in between the faders, use led track meters or decibel lines to read the track volume. Now with the optional Platform , instead of having the screen going straight a across, make when there’s individual screen/windows lined up with each track and beside each individual screen can be audio led meters for each track. Yall should flatten the jog wheel and make the diameter more bigger. Also make it out of something solid with a grippy material for grip instead of plastic. Like the Benhringer X-Touch, add a blue led halo ring around the edges of the jog wheel. This will definitely add attractions. Not o y that. It should change colors and each color could represent something like blue – for stand by/ready mode, red – for recording, gold – pause and green – for play back or what ever yall want them to represent. I’m just given my ideas because there’s a huge audience looking for a control surface this size but cant find an attractive and inspiring. The few that’s out there this size, we all said the same thing. UGLY. This one here is decent with superb features and fictionally. It have alot of potential in the market. It just need a few teaks and BAM!!!!!! Dress to impress. Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on March 22, 2016 at 7:20 pm Thank you for your suggestions! We always have an open ear and always listen to our user’s ideas. Platform M is one MIDI device under the Platform series. The whole idea of this series, is that it will consist of a number of different controller modules that will allow each user to build his own dream controller platform by combining modules. From a functionality standpoint, many of the features you mentioned are available in the Qcon Pro or in the Qcon Pro X, however, I do understand you’re asking about these features in a unit with a smaller footprint. Your suggestions will be taken into discussion in our next new product brainstorming session. Once again, we really appreciate you taking the time to comment and offer these suggestions. Thank you very much! Log in to Reply Riccardo on May 7, 2016 at 1:00 pm hello! Is it compatible with Pro Tools? Where can I buy it from Italy? Thanks Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on May 12, 2016 at 5:10 pm Yes, Riccardo! The Platform M is compatible with Pro Tools. Please contact our Italian distributors Eko Music Group (www.ekomusicgroup.com) for information on stores near you. Log in to Reply Mads on May 9, 2016 at 9:19 pm Looks very promising – will probably get one when it is out. Just what I have been looking for. Just one thing missing – the flip button? Hopefully it is possible to flip faders on this… Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on May 10, 2016 at 4:13 am There is no space to add an additional button at this point, but we can add the functionality.

Do the encoders have the usual MCU style push top switches ? Are the encoders touch sensitive ? Very nice form factor !! My test setup is a custom built console, will probably mount the Platform D at the BOTTOM below the faders, like in the old school large console masking tape scribble strip style. Any plans for a C4 type unit for controlling plugins ? I’ve tried my best but I’ve NEVER found a suitable solution for plugin control. You can email me directly if you wish: email@example.com Log in to Reply Geoff Waddington on May 10, 2016 at 10:26 pm Wow, I just just checked more carefully, the LCD strip does not line up with the faders, geeez that’s a miss, not the least bit interested unless this is fixed before you ship, WOW who is in charge of product design, clearly someone who never used a console, c’mon guys you’re stinkin’ up the joint Log in to Reply Nadir @ Icon - Global on May 12, 2016 at 5:02 pm If I understand your comments, Geoff, you’re concerned that the Platform D display doesn’t line up exactly with the faders on the Platform M? The Platform D won’t function exactly like the display of a console. But this is because the LCD will display the information for both a group of parameters and for individual parameters depending on what is selected. For example, if you’re adjusting an equalizer plug-in on channel 6, the entire display will show the frequencies, level, Q and other adjustable parameters for that selected channel. The characters on the display don’t line up exactly based on the spelling of the parameter. From a functionality standpoint, the parameters will read from left to right, but no, currently they won’t line up exactly with the next channel. I can forward this request to our engineers, and it may be something that could be updated in a future firmware update, but at this point, I doubt it could be addressed within the initial launch. Release is a few short weeks away. Log in to Reply Brandon on May 12, 2016 at 2:49 pm Can we expect for units to be shipped to the U.S. sometime this month???
