    Product Description

    Take back control of EQ, Compressor, Gate, Volume and Pan - you have the power at your fingertips with the Softube Console 1 controller. There’s no midi mapping or setup here either, the Console 1 is perfectly integrated with its software straight out of the box.

    Expand your horizons

    Thanks to close collaboration with SSL, the Console 1 can emulate the Solid State Logic 4000 E console.

    Customise your channels with over 60 Console 1 ready plug-ins from Softube and Universal Audio. Mix and match units from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios and many others. In addition to the plug-ins, there are entire Console 1 channel strips available, with EQ, compressor, gate and modelled saturation from the original analogue hardware.


    Console 1 will work with any major DAW, however Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk SONAR provide a deeper integration. You can control track selection, volume, send levels pan and solo/mute. Softube intend to bring the same functionality to all major DAWs in time.

    Key Features

    • A unique centerpiece for any DAW based studio.
    • Works in all major DAWs.
    • Included software emulation of Solid State Logic's SL 4000 E-series console.
    • 70+ plug-ins from Softube and Universal Audio are 'Console 1 Ready'.
    • Additional premium analog-modeled channel strips available.
    • No mouse, no mapping, no hassle.
    • Premium quality hardware.
    • Control tracking with UA Apollo interfaces using Apollo Central mode.
    • Saves time, improves workflow, and helps you make better mixing decisions.
    • Far more physically intuitive than mixing with a mouse, you'll listen more, and listen better with Console 1.

    Here's what Softube say about the Console 1 MKII:

    The Console 1 hardware gives you hands-on control of EQ, compressor, gate, volume and pan on all your tracks. No MIDI mapping is needed—the hardware is tightly integrated with the Console 1 software, straight out of the box.

    Timeless Sound

    Pamper your tracks with the sound of the legendary Solid State Logic SL 4000 E console—probably the most used high end console in the history of music recording. Softube's emulation was developed in close collaboration with SSL, and it's included with the purchase of Console 1.

    Expand Your Options

    Customize your channels with any of the over 60 available Console 1 ready plug-ins from Softube and Universal Audio. Mix and match units from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios and many others. Pre-mapped and ready to go.

    A Lifetime of Mixing

    Console 1 is a premium Swedish design, built to last for many years of mixing. Its steel chassis makes it solid as a rock, and the knobs and buttons have the responsiveness and feel you'd expect from a high end analog console.

    Add More Consoles

    In addition to single Console 1 ready plug-ins, there are entire Console 1 channel strips available, with EQ, compressor, gate and modeled saturation from the original analog hardware. Currently, the options are Solid State Logic XL 9000 K-Series for Console 1, British Class A For Console 1 and Summit Audio Grand Channel for Console 1, with more to come.

    Control Your DAW

    Console 1 works with any major DAW on the market. But certain DAWs—currently Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk SONAR—feature additional integration, meaning you can use the Console 1 hardware to control vital DAW functions such as track selection, volume, send levels, pan and solo/mute. We aim to have this functionality added for all DAWs.

    Using Console 1 with Cubase 9.5. Absolute game changer. Don’t know how I mixed so long without it. It seems to add a professional lustre to my tracks. Just gels everything together and lifts it into a different realm. Love it more than my Grandmother, not the Moog one either.

    Has transformed my work flow.

    Trusted Customer27th Dec 2019

    Speeds my work flow up. It’s just like using my old recording gear but with a far better sound. Of course it’s not perfect, but nothing ever is. Wish it integrated better with Logic. Maybe time to start using Pro Tools.

    Really nice to have knobs instead of using a mouse and sounds really good. Would definitely recommend to other musicians and producers.
