The Softube Console 1 controller is a unique device, essentially a dedicated controller for Softube plug-ins its designed to give you the functionality of a physical mixing desk but without the desk. Giving you a single mixer channel control of Gate ad Transient Shaping, EQ, Compression and Saturation. Drop the plug-in across all your DAW channels and you'll have hands on control of all of that.
It comes with the SSL 4000 E channel strip but with over 70 Console 1 ready plug-ins from Softube and Universal Audio. What this means is that you can swap out individual sections (EQ/ Dynamics) to create customized channel strips - all with hardware control.
Just released is the American Class A channel - which as far as we can tell is based on API console sections for a specific flavour of EQ, drive and dynamics.
Console 1 can also be used to control Universal Audio's Apollo Central, allowing more mouse free mix processing.
