The X Series iKeyboard 8X MIDI Contoller from ICON combines an 61-key piano keyboard with a single channel DAW controller in a rugged metal enclosure. The controller features pitch bend and modulation wheels, and Octave and Transpose up/down buttons. The controller section also features a touch fader with LED feedback to control and automate levels and other parameters. The Backlit LED touch fader reacts in real time with your DAW and synchronizes automatically with different channel values when switching between channels. The large rotary encoder with LED ring can be used for panning, setting send levels, controlling plugin parameters, and more.
The ICON iKeyboard X comes with Cubase LE and includes factory presets for popular DAW's including Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Samplitude, and Studio One. Every control on the iKeyboard X can be custom-mapped to any MIDI application using the included iMap software. The iKeyboard X uses Mackie Control and HUI protocols for presets and automatic mapping, and can be configured for general MIDI values as well. The controller is equipped and easy set up with Mackie Control and HUI protocol.
