Daly City, CA â€” Following on the success of the updated ICON D-Controlâ„¢ ES worksurface, Digidesign is pleased to announce the newly-updated ICON D-CommandÂ® ES worksurface, which features the same stunning aesthetics as its larger sibling, but in a compact design. As an update to the original blue D-CommandÂ®, the new D-Command ES has been stylishly enhanced with a darker color scheme as well as updated, higher contrast text and graphics for improved legibility in low light.
Like other members of the ICON family, the new D-Command ES boasts unparalleled integration with industry-standard Pro Tools HDÂ® software, including complete recall of all session parameters, routing, and plug-ins. Expandable up to 24 faders, D-Command ES features dedicated central controls for editing EQ and Dynamics plug-ins, enabling mixers to make adjustments while monitoring in the â€œsweet spot.â€? It also provides per-channel control over many Pro ToolsÂ® processing functions, routing, and automation modes.
Pricing and D-Command ES Bundles
The ICON D-Command ES, which is currently available through authorized ICON dealers, has a manufacturer suggested retail price of $16,995 USD for the main unit. Additional 16-channel D-Command ES Fader Modules can be had for $14,995 USD each.
In addition to offering the new D-Command ES worksurface, Digidesign is also offering an 8 fader and a 24 fader D-Command ES Bundle that allow customers to save thousands of dollars by purchasing a complete ICON and Pro Tools|HD system bundle instead of buying the same items Ã la carte.
