Take on the Biggest Mixes with Greater Confidence

Save up to 31% when you trade in your old ICON towards S6

Got an ICON D-Control or D-Command? We hope your trusty surface has served you well. In case you weren’t aware, Avid will no longer offer support or repairs for ICON after August 31, 2018. While future versions of Pro Tools will still work with ICON for the foreseeable future, we do not plan on adding new features or functionality to the family, and any new issues that arise may not be addressed.

If you want to stay at the forefront of professional music and audio mixing, you can greatly expand your capabilities and opportunities with Pro Tools | S6. Even better, we offer a generous ICON trade-in program, so not only will you get better ergonomics, expanded DAW control, and surface customizability with S6, but great savings too.

Save up to $19K USD when you trade in an ICON towards Pro Tools | S6 M40 between now and June 15, 2018—that's up to 31% savings! While supplies last.
