ICON is not a console. It's a controller for PT. Whether or not you use hardware with PT
on inserts has absolutely nothing to do with ICON; there are no inserts on ICON, no audio
goes to the ICON itself (although it controls the monitoring of the XMON)... the only
thing you can do on an ICON that has any direct analogue control is add an ADDA IO.
Two things; the ICON was probably the single most awesome thing I bought for the
studio in terms of work flow in 20 years of doing this. Second ... don't really know why
this is in the PC forum!!
