The Softube Console 1 MK2 is a hardware Control surface designed to provide control of over 60 available plugins from Softube and Universal Audio

The system provides a software channel strip that can be utilized with any track in your DAW, as well as a hardware controller for adjusting the parameters of that channel strip. You can keep watch over all track levels using the on-screen meter bridge and the hardware's built-in meter display.

You can switch between tracks using the controller's bank of channel selector buttons. When switching between channels, the contoller's built-in LED indicators-now more visible than before- will change to display the current channel-strip levels; the on-screen display will change to show the selected channel. Page-up and page-down buttons enable access to additional channels in groups of 20.

The system comes with Softube's virtual model of a classic large-frame console, the Solid State Logic SL 4000 E, and with this emulation, you get every tonal option an SSL channel strip can provide. In addition to this emulation-as well as separately available models of other classic consoles-the system allows you to control, straight from hardware, well-regarded UAD emulations. Digital offerings from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios, and more are all represented, with no MIDI mapping required to make these plug-ins work with the controller.

As for the hardware controller, you can use it in a variety of ways, grouping multiple channels together to adjust their channel strip parameters simultaneously. You can also copy and paste settings from one channel to another. The flexibility of the controller allows for parallel compression and side-chaining, and a history function allows you to undo any change to the plug-ins, thus facilitating experimentation when mixing.

The MKII also includes DAW control functions for Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk Sonar, two DAWs heretofore incompatible with the product. The system supports VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in formats on Mac OS X systems, and is compatible with Windows as well.

The hardware has the same build quality as the original units, with some minor layout changes such as more visible LED markers.

    Great addition to my studio
    Va durablement changer mon workflow. J'ai passé 10 ans in the box, et l'outil permet un contrôle vraiment agréable pour sculpter le son. Ce qui prendrait 3 plug-ins et 5 minutes de réglage se fait en 15 secondes sur ce modèle tactile de channel strip. Read more

    Weird science
    I don't know what it is. I love working on the computer but there is something about this device that has made mixing on the computer even more fun. It may not be true but i feel like it has improved my mixing.

    Softtube Console 1 mkii
    I am very pleased with the C1 and find the tactile mixing experience much better than itb with mouse and keyboard. The C1 features are very well designed, easily learned and quickly become 2nd mixing nature. The ST plug ins are very high sonic quality too.

    I find using it helps me to better hear my mixing decisions and to create better mixes. Read more
