The QCon Pro G2 USB-MIDI Controller Station has nine motorized faders—eight channel faders, plus one master fader, each 100mm in length and featuring 10-bit resolution. Also on-board are eight multi-purpose push encoders, each surrounded by 11 LEDs, and 78 assignable buttons — including illuminated channel Rec (record), Solo, Mute, and Sel (select), as well as six illuminated (Play, Stop, Rec, Rewind, Fast-Forward, and Loop) Transport buttons.

Nearby sit a Jog shuttle wheel and two External Controls connections on 1/4-inch TRS jacks for receiving optional SPD-01 foot pedals to activate selected functions. LED level meters are provided for each channel, and a backlit LCD display shows channel names and parameter values. Another LED display provides SMPTE and/or MIDI beat clock information.

The unit supports and includes overlays for most popular DAWs, including Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, Apple Logic Pro, Avid Pro Tools, BandLab Technologies Cakewalk by BandLab (formerly Cakewalk SONAR), Bitwig Studio, Cockos REAPER, Image Line FL Studio, MAGIX Samplitude, MOTU Digital Performer, PreSonus Studio One, Propellerhead Reason, and Steinberg Cubase and Nuendo.

The control surface works with Windows (XP, Vista, 7/8/10), and Mac (OS X 10.10 Yosemite and older, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, macOS 10.12 Sierra, macOS 10.13 High Sierra).
