Icon Pro Audio PLATFORMM+ overview

  • 1Description

Designed for mix engineers and producers looking to take tactile control over their DAWs, the Icon Pro Audio Platform M+ is a modular control system with eight faders, one master fader, eight rotary knobs, transport controls, and more. It connects to your computer via USB, using MIDI protocol to control channel levels, panning positions, and other mixing decisions. On each channel you’ll not only find a 100mm motorized fader with 10-bit resolution, but also backlit buttons to quickly mute, solo, and record-enable your tracks.

The Platform M+ features software and drivers that allow it to interface with most major DAWs including Cubase, Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Reason, Bitwig, and of course, Pro Tools. If you’re a Mac user, you might get use of out the included iMap software, which facilitates simple mapping of MIDI functions. Bank-shift and channel-shifting buttons are provided, but if you ever find yourself in need of more Platform-series gear, you can loop it in via multiple ports in the rear of the unit. A power adapter is included.

Controls at a Glance
  • Eight Channel Faders: The eight 100mm motorized faders are generally used for controlling the track volume of the DAW. They are all touch-sensitive, allowing for override automation the moment you touch a fader. Also, they are motorized; they will automatically move to reflect the current level of the selected channels in your DAW application. Any automation recorded in a project will be reflected by the fader positions.
  • One Master Fader: This 100mm motorized fader operates the same as the other eight faders. It controls your DAW software's master channel fader, though it operates different in Pro Tools (Pro Tools is designed in such a way that the fader next to your last channel fader always acts as the master channel fader).
  • Eight Rotary Knobs: The eight rotary encoder knobs can be used for controlling the track pan position, sending aux send levels, and more—you can modify them to adjust specific parameters within plug-ins and virtual instruments.
  • Buttons and Transport: Each channel sports buttons for controlling record, mute, solo, and select parameters. You’ll also find buttons that shift banks of faders, or shift faders one channel at a time. Transport controls are also provided, giving you global control over play, stop, record, rewind, fast-forward, loop, zoom, and more.

    Icon Pro Audio PLATFORMM+ reviews

    Platform M+ Audio and MIDI Control Surface for DAWs and Plug-Ins is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product... Excellent Service I was looking for a simple motorized fader control surface. I required touch sensitive moving faders, pan, solo, record and select on each channel plus bank / channel controls. The Icon Platform M+ has that plus a few more items that I initially wasn't interested in. I could not locate a Canadian dealer with a unit in stock. The transport controls are of little interest to me because I use a computer keyboard in conjunction with the control surface (Platform M+). However, the shuttle (jog) wheel turned out to be a pleasant surprise. It works well as a shuttle (forward / rewind)... one push on the wheel and it's a jog (scrub) control. Two zoom buttons just above it when activated turn the wheel into a horizontal / vertical zoom wheel... very handy. The touch sensitive faders each have an LED indicator when a fader(s) is touched... good to know when you're rewriting automation. The Mixer button shows / hides the mix window... nice. There are Read / Write buttons for the selected channel. Very quick and handy. I have my qwerty keyboard with these key commands but this is visually quicker. The small footprint is important to me (slightly less than 16 x 8 x 3 inches... w x d x h). The sales service was absolutely excellent. I ordered on a Tuesday, was given the price... free shipping and the option to pay duties / taxes up front. The quote was in $Cdn which I requested. Very reasonable considering our lopsided exchange rates. I was using the Platform M+ on Friday of the same week... not a penny more than quoted. Can't say enough how pleased I am with the quick responses to my questions (pre-ordering) and the super fast - free delivery to Canada.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Connection issue (known issue) I bought this after having read other users complaining that it has connection problems. It drops out or doesn't connect, in device manager showing up either as M+ Audio device, or just USB Audio Device. (randomly between the two names). When it does connect, it works perfectly, and is a great unit. However, 9 times out of 10 it won't connect, making it worthless. Tech support is bad, still waiting for a reply after over 2 weeks.
