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 the 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.
The 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 the 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 plus Softube and 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.
