Digidesign has begun dealer shipments of its new, large-format ICON D-Control ES ($66,995 for the base configuration). The ICON D-Control ES was previewed at the October 2007 AES (Audio Engineering Society) convention in New York City, and is the latest member of the award-winning ICON worksurface family, taking its place alongside the original ICON D-Control and medium-format ICON D-Command.
The new ICON D-Control ES offers a darker color scheme that blends easily with today’s modern studio décor, as well as updated, higher-contrast text and graphics for improved legibility in low light, and a new switch LED color layout for improved ergonomics.
Like existing ICON systems, the new ICON D-Control ES offers unparalleled integration with Pro Tools HD software, including complete recall of all session parameters, routing and plug-ins. Digidesign will continue to offer the D-Control in its original blue color scheme, and with the addition of the D-Control ES, users will be able to choose between two aesthetic options that both offer the full range of ICON features.
Additional options are available for tailoring the D-Control ES to specific customer needs.
Digidesign is also offering several bundles as well as hardware exchange programs that offer substantial savings to both new and existing Digidesign customers.
