Mix faster and better
Softube Console 1 has a unique and intuitive workflow, with the best features of both hardware and software mixing. With fewer practical distractions, you can focus on the music, not the technology.
One knob per job
One control per parameter, and no MIDI mapping required. Console 1 works with any major DAW on the market straight out of the box, and offers extra deep integration with select DAWs.
A Modern Mixing System
The Softube Console 1 mixing ecosystem is so much more than a simple DAW/plug-in controller. It’s an efficient, elegant, and amazing-sounding modern mixing solution, combining hardware and software to give you the best of both worlds: the versatility, affordability, and usability of in-the-box mixing, alongside the workflow, feel, and focus dedicated hardware can bring.
Console 1 can be used alone, or in combination with Console 1 Fader for a tight ‘complete desk’ experience. You can even use multiple Console 1 Fader units to build the ideal workflow for your specific studio.
Console 1 Works With All Major DAWs
With no need for MIDI mapping or assigning, Console 1 works straight out of the box. Studio One, Cubase, Cakewalk/Sonar, Reaper, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, and more – any host that can run a VST, AU, or AAX plug-in can work with Console 1.
Some hosts offer deeper compatibility, allowing control of the DAW itself from Console 1’s hardware. Select tracks and control their pan, volume, sends and more directly from the hardware. Ableton Live, Presonus Studio One, Steinberg Cubase, Cakewalk by BandLab/Sonar, and Cockos Reaper are among these, with more being added regularly.
70+ Softube & UAD plug-ins are ‘Console 1 Ready’
Design the ideal desk for any mix, all controllable from the same purpose-built hardware, without mapping. If you own gates, compressors, or equalizers from Softube or Universal Audio, you’re already building a collection of amazing options for your Console 1 mixes.
There are more than 70 ‘Console 1 Ready’ plug-ins. Emulations of classic hardware from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios, and many others can be substituted for the relevant section of your Console 1 channel strip to create bespoke processing chains on individual tracks, groups, or across the whole mix.
Expansions: Add More Colors to Your Palette
In addition to the included Solid State Logic SL 4000 E-series console, several other complete channel strips are available, with EQ, compressor, gate and modeled saturation from the original analog hardware. This means you can have several classic analog consoles in a single studio, at a fraction of the footprint, power consumption, and cost, and with none of the maintenance responsibilities.
Treat your tracks to the extreme clarity and bandwidth of the SSL XL 9000 K-series console, for example, or the warmth and weight of the British Class A. Get a big bold modern rock sound from the American Class A, or add smooth, creamy color with the Summit Audio Grand Channel. These can all be added universally across the project, or selectively track by track. Mix strings and vocals with one desk, and the rhythm section with another. It’s up to you.
