World-class console sound
Authentic, timeless big studio sounds from the company known for exquisitely modeling big studio gear, from Tube-Tech to Weiss. Console 1 Channel comes with Softube’s Core Mixing Suite software. It delivers the award-winning sounds of Softube Tape, FET Compressor Mk II, and Bus Processor in versatile preamp, shape, equalization, and compression sections, and an innovative drive befitting Softube’s stellar saturation reputation. It’s Softube’s take on the perfect channel strip, but users will appreciate the ability to draw on Softube’s one-of-a-kind catalog to design their unique dream console.
World-class console feel
Softube engineers ensured that every rotation of Console 1 Channel’s Analog Feel potentiometers delivers a sensation that rivals the priciest outboard gear. The weighty, precise, and resistant turn of these knobs underscores the immersive mixing experience of Channel. With an increase of more than ten times the resolution over the earlier generation, Console 1 Channel is the future-proofed foundation of the modern mixing workflow.
Mix without a mouse
