  1. Features

At NAMM 2019, Icon Pro Audio presents a new model added to the popular Platform series modular control surfaces. Enter the new Platform Nano – a compact MIDI control surface for producers, engineers, musicians and home studio enthusiasts who want hands-on control of their modern “in-the-box” digital music production. The Platform Nano provides tactile DAW controls via USB 2.0 to your software music production system. Control your mix with four rotary dual-function encoder knobs, a single 100mm high-resolution motorized fader, jog wheel, and illuminating buttons for transport, channel strip, and automation. Access all channels of a DAW project by banking across tracks in groups of 8 or 1 channel at a time. Optional accessories are available – the Platform D2 display module and the new PN-1. The PN-1 module enables a wireless Bluetooth connection between the Platform Nano and your PC or Mac, and provides power for the Nano with its rechargeable battery.

The all-new Icon Platform Nano redefines the standard for a compact DAW controller. Designed for ultimate convenience and versatility, the Platform Nano offers deluxe controls and options: a full-sized motorized fader, rotary dual-function encoder knobs, backlit mix control buttons, and a jog wheel. Access to your entire mix by banking across tracks in groups of 8 or 1 channel at a time.

Mackie Control and HUI protocols provide seamless integration with most popular Digital Audio Workstations. Overlays for Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, ProTools, Logic, Reason, Studio One, Bitwig, FL Studio, Adobe Audition, Digital Performer, Sonar, Samplitude and Reaper come standard with the Platform Nano control surface.

With the addition of the optional PN-1 accessory module, the Platform Nano becomes a wireless control surface for your DAW. The PN-1 enables Bluetooth connection to your Mac or PC and provides power for the Nano with an integrated rechargeable battery. This allows incredible flexibility, for example, bring the Platform Nano into the vocal booth, and use as a personal remote for managing recording in the DAW. The Platform Nano is an excellent addition to any studio environment or production work style and advances creativity with new workflow possibilities.
