Digidesign ships new ICON D-Control Surround Panner option

Digidesign has announced that the new Surround Panner option for the ICON D-Control worksurface is now available.
The Surround Panner brings powerful and convenient panning functionality to the centre section of the D-Control console.
Developed for mixing in all surround formats, the Surround Panner provides post and music mixing professionals with multiple, ergonomic methods for moving sound throughout the surround field. ICON operators can use the high-resolution colour LCD touchscreen to enter snap automation moves or place sounds with touchable on-screen speaker icons. Surround Panner also includes two touch-sensitive joysticks and two encoders, which feature 15-segment LED rings. Meanwhile, a cluster of hardware and software buttons make accessing parameters and assigning targets easy.
Surround Panner works with Digidesign Pro Tools software to deliver robust capabilities for automated panning. A new AutoGlide function pans sounds automatically from one position to the next, helping to move sound in time. Direct support for new glide automation functionality enables precise off-line automation as well.
Custom assignments of non-pan-related controls make Surround Panner a useful tool for post mixers, sound designers, and music mixing engineers alike. For example, the operator can assign gain and frequency of an EQ to X and Y axes on the Surround Panner to achieve dramatic filter sweeps with a finger tip.
The Surround Panner will work with Digidesign Pro Tools TDM 6.9.3 software and higher. Macintosh systems require Mac OS X 10.4.
