Digidesign announced D-Command™, a new ICON integrated console. ICON D-Command incorporates much of the same functionality, industrial design, and custom workflow capabilities as the ICON D-Control™ worksurface. The D-Command is compact in size and features dedicated EQ and dynamics editing sections, custom fader modes and touch-sensitive rotary controls.

“We’ve sold over 200 D-Control–based ICON systems in less than a year,” says Rich Nevens, Digidesign’s director of worldwide console sales. “With the introduction of D-Command, we are extremely excited to be able to bring the power of the ICON integrated console environment to more audio professionals than ever before. This level of advanced automation, audio processing features and control surface functionality has never before been available at this price point.”

The ICON D-Command will support mixes up to 24-bit/192 kHz in up to 5.1 surround and directly integrates with industry-standard Pro Tools® recording and editing software. Similar to D-Control, ICON D-Command employs an intuitive console layout. The D-Command Main Unit features an easily accessible, central control section with straight-forward monitoring and communications controls. Equipped with eight channel faders, ICON D-Command is expandable to 24 faders by adding a single 16-channel Fader Module. The ergonomic design of ICON D-Command enables control of multiple session parameters through channel strips and provides LCD displays, LED rings and bar-graph meters for visual session feedback.

Featuring dedicated, center-section panels for EQ and dynamics plug-in editing--as well as per-channel control over many processing functions, routing, and automation modes--ICON D-Command gives operators powerful hands-on command over their projects in a smaller console.
