The ICON housed at Digidesign's headquarters
SAE Institute has purchased 10 new Digidesign ICON Integrated Consoles for installation in its campuses worldwide. The first ICON was installed at SAE’s Amsterdam campus, and delivery of the remaining units will take place through the rest of the year.
SAE chose the Digidesign ICON, known as an “integrated console environment,” to further advance its many courses in ProTools–based recording and production. As a completely custom-configurable audio production environment, the ICON utilizes the industry-standard Pro Tools®|HD Accel as its core DSP engine. Options include expandable analog and digital I/O, integrated remote mic preamps, industry-leading Digidesign Development Partner effects processing plug-ins and software options, seamless Avid picture support, and comprehensive synchronization and machine control options. This will allow students and instructors at SAE to more easily access and utilize some of the more in-depth ProTools functions, while providing the most intuitive tactile control surface available for the system.
