Following on from the Platform M+ 8-channel DAW control surfaces, iCon Pro Audio have announced a matching USB 2 audio interface, Platform U22 VST.

NASHVILLE, TN, USA: having ultimately updated its popular Platform MIDI/audio control concept late last year with the timely introduction of the Platform M+ eight-channel DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) controller and accompanying eight-channel Platform X+ expander (adding up to 32 channels of true tactile DAW control via USB 2.0), high-quality, professional-grade musical equipment provider iCON Pro Audio is proud to announce the matching Platform U22 VST — a 2-in/2-out USB 3.0 audio interface providing superior sonic quality, a low noise floor, and ultra-fast processing as a compact, rugged, and versatile device designed specifically for working with those popular Platform series controllers — coinciding with the company’s appearance at The 2019 NAMM Show, January 24-27, in Anaheim, California…

As implied by its full — and appropriate — appellation, the Platform U22 VST USB 3.0 Super-Speed audio interface is deftly designed by iCON Pro Audio as a 24-Bit 96/192KHz 2-in/2-out device delivering super-speed connectivity for ultra-low latency, letting loose with superior sonic quality, a low noise floor, and ultra-fast processing as a compact, rugged, and versatile addition to the popular Platform MIDI/audio control concept, specifically tailored to match its series siblings.

Ultimately, users of the Platform U22 VST can easily expand the I/O capability of their existing Platform system or, of course, can choose to run it as a standalone audio interface in its own right, recording — with full duplex, simultaneous record/playback support — two signals at once through the two high-quality Mic/Inst/Line preamps, each equipped with individual Gain controls, +48V phantom power switching, and LED indicators to assist with dialling in the sound.

Sharpness, clarity, and focus are what it’s all about, and irrefutably iCON Pro Audio’s perfectly-executed Platform U22 VST is unsurpassed in advancing productions in such a highly-portable slimline and flexible form factor, featuring two analogue balanced inputs on 1/4-inch TRS jacks; two analog balanced outputs on 1/4-inch TRS jacks; MIDI I/O (1–16 channel); a direct monitoring (DM) switch for Stereo, Mono and PC with individual volume control; and headphone output with individual (HP) volume control sensibly spaced across and around a road-ready, rugged casing of metal construction housing high-quality analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue convertors — DAC: THD+N: -112dB; Dynamic Range: 120dB ADC: THD+N: -110dB; Dynamic Range: 120dB — for facilitating a rich, dynamic sound.

Since a DAW is at the heart of the creative process for so many musicians, producers, and composers, duly defining their workflow and recording capabilities — central to the sound itself, in other words, without doubt, the accompanying audio interface is one of the most important parts of their signal chain. Clearly, anyone looking for a high-resolution audio interface packing plentiful features into a small footprint at an affordable price perhaps need look no further than the new Platform U22 VST — all the more so since it also comes complete with ProDriver VST, iCON Pro Audio’s innovative, proprietary plug-in host and virtual signal routing software for MacOS (Intel- Mac) and Windows 7, 8 , and 10 (32-bit/64-bit), so users can even host plug-ins without launching their trusty DAW!

Destined to be showcased on the iCON Pro Audio display on US distributor Mixware’s Booth (11720) at The 2019 NAMM Show, January 24-27 in Anaheim, California, come check out the new Platform U22 VST USB 3.0 Super-Speed audio interface alongside additions to iCON Pro Audio’s lengthening lineup of must-see products!
