First and foremost, the new Console 1 Channel gives you a more realistic analogue console feel than ever before. The 27 controller knobs provide over 10 times the resolution than the previous model, making the user experience more precise and authentic.
Console 1 Channel ships with Softube’s Core Mixing Suite software, and provides a complete channel strip of controls divided into preamp, shape, EQ, and compression for handling plug-ins like Softube Tape, FET Compressor Mk II, and Bus Processor.
Each of the Shape, EQ, and Compressor sections allows two plug-in instances and the knob-per-function interface helps you deal with each aspect of your processing chain without changing your focus and reaching for your mouse.
The Console 1 Core Mixing Suite includes features like Softube Tape/Preamp section, Shape: Transient Shaper, passive vintage and precise modern EQs, 3 compressors, and a newly designed drive algorithm.
In addition, dual USB-C ports provide connectivity for daisy chaining additional devices, which is useful and there are mounting options for both VESA and 19-inch rack formats.
Overall, Console 1 Channel is a hardy piece of studio gear with a well-designed workflow. So, if you’re a Softube user already, then it will certainly make your DAW more fun to use.
