Regarding the importance of this new piece of audio equipment, Creative Domains Vice President, Production, Dan Korobkin said, ?The installation of Digidesign's new D-Command mixing console in combination with our Pro Tools HD software creates a more collaborative work flow between our mix room and editorial bays. The incredible versatility of the D-Command mixing console in regard to mapping and customizing faders and control parameters creates a much faster and more efficient work environment. This new equipment allows our audio mixers to dedicate more time and detail to the creative aspects of each of their mix sessions."
D-Command, the newest work surface from the ICON family, features extensive control and ICON-exclusive Pro Tools functionality within a compact work surface. Featuring dedicated, center section panels for EQ and dynamics plug-in editing, as well as per-channel control over many processing functions, routing, and automation modes, D-Command provides operators with powerful command over their projects in a smaller console.
Similar to D-Control, the D-Command work surface employs a console layout. The D-Command Main Unit features a central control section with monitoring and communications controls, and includes eight channel faders, which are expandable up to 24 faders via a single 16-channel Fader Module. D-Commands ergonomic design enables control of multiple session parameters via the channel strips and provides LCD displays, LED rings, and bar-graph meters to facilitate important visual session feedback.
