The Softube Console 1 MkII, is a controller for the DAW based studio. The hardware lets you quickly switch between your tracks and control gate, EQ, compressor and more. The Console 1 software gives you the sound of a classic Solid State Logic console.

Console 1 MkII is not a DAW controller, or even a plug-in controller. It's a separate hardware/software mixer that works in tandem with your DAW. Use one of the track selector buttons on the hardware to select the track you want to work on. Then use the physical knobs and buttons to adjust the included gate, EQ, compressor, high/low cut filters, transient shaper and emulated analog console distortion. Select a track, tweak the knobs. Select another track, tweak the knobs - that is essentially the workflow of Console 1.

Get the classic SSL crunch and character, straight out of the box. Expand your options with the many available plug-ins from Softube and Universal Audio.

Mix faster and better. The intuitive workflow is unique for Console 1, and lets you focus on the music - not the technology.

One control per parameter, no MIDI mapping needed. Console 1 works with any major DAW on the market and offers extra deep integration with select DAWs.
