Digidesign on Tuesday announced that the Surround Panner option for the ICON D-Control worksurface is now available. The Surround Panner brings panning functionality to the center section of the D-Control console. Surround Panner works with Digidesign’s Pro Tools software to deliver 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, according to Digidesign. The Surround Panner will work with Digidesign Pro Tools TDM 6.9.3 software and higher, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.
