NEXT GENERATION MIXER?

Go on, admit it. You want one.

 

It was way back in April last year, at Musikmesse, when Softube first revealed the Console 1 and – to give them credit – the company openly said we wouldn’t see much more of the Console 1 until around about now. The wait is over. The Softube Console 1 is being touted as “the next generation audio mixer”. It can be used together with any major DAW and offers true analogue sound (provided by Softube’s own plug-ins), plus the analogue workflow of using physical knobs and buttons. Hmm… so it’s another controller? No, because the Console 1 controllers only affect its own plug-ins, in particular a precisely-modeled plug-in of a Solid State Logic SL 4000 E channel strip – and any other Softube plug-ins as well. So the concept is that to convert your DAW completely into a virtual SL 4000 E you insert the Console 1 software over every channel and buss – and never touch any of your DAW’s native mixing controls again. It’s an interesting idea. The on-screen GUI plus LEDs on the hardware display all the information you need. A Q&A page at www.softube.com best explains how Softube has given the Console 1 a lot of thought.
