Softube Console 1 WOW!!!
Old 1 week ago
  #3601
Brainworx just released a Focusrite Studio console strip. I've been wondering if Softube would do this. Or at least just the ISA110 EQ.

I am hoping Console 1 adopts the BX Console series. It would be a very nice addition.

I've never used a bx plug. I don't doubt that they're great if so many people like them. But even apart from the C1 controller, Softube plugs do it for me every time, so I'd really love to have their take on the Focusrite. Imagine the Red series?

Softube will never officially support PA stuff; they're competitors. Why let another company take advantage (and your sales) from you, using your own controller?

UAD—as with Console 1—is a closed system which requires investment. They came to a mutually beneficial agreement, even though they had a few overlapping plugins (SSL channel strip for example).

That won't happen. See above. Maybe there's still a misconception what exactly Console 1 is. But you can, of course, map Console 1 to the bx channelstrip. You just lose the advanced control features.

I love my console 1 with Cubase Pro 10. I’m using PC and having no issues until I woke up and went to write and found this... I’ve had this unit for 2 months and have used it four times because I am busy doing other things and love it to bits because it does save me heaps of time and like the sound I get. But 6 LEDs stopped working in the EQ section. I hope the knobs don’t start to malfunction like M Audio Midi Controllers because that would get annoying.

Should be a warranty case. Have mine for 2 years almost, no issues, rock solid.

I will head into the shop soon. I noticed when I push slightly into the EQ knobs I got slight LED back the pushed in another knob slightly and the lights came back on. They do come off when I turn the other side of EQs so looks like a short somewhere like dying Christmas bulbs.

On a bright note, the Console 1 has shortened down my workflow by half and has improved my overall mix quality by 20-25%. I rarely use any UAD plugins and am happy with the SSL 4000K it’s doing it for me. Haven’t tried any demos. I have UAD for years and was using Neve 88RS MK2 and API Vision Strip along with 560 eq. I barely reach for them with Console 1. I only use UAD at pre-master fader now.

2 years in, have any of your knobs started showing any signs of midi error like midi cc moving figures on its own??

No hardware problems here. Build quality is solid. Btw, you do know you can use many uad plugs with console one?

mine has had light usage since i got it (been busy with school) but i've had it since the end of 2017, i think and it works as well as it did the day i got it. i did make a point to seek out one of the og made in sweden ones because by that point they had announced the v2 ones and i wanted to play it safe.

anyhow, i had an idea. i was shopping around online for a compressor pedal for my guitar. then i remembered that i had console 1. specifically, the ssl4000 and the british class a. and since i just got a load box and have been using wall of sound in my daw, couldn't i then use console one for my compression? am i a silly person? or is this genius? mind you, this is to jam and possibly track, not mix (though that would happen at some point, obviously).

if this is worth persuing, which console would you recommend? has anyone tried this yet? sample settings? i'm generally of the very light opto comp variety (if at all, i generally forgo for playing and tracking), but i'm curious to see what these things can do. and if it can save me a few hundred on a comp pedal, so much the better!

I don't think I've posted the final, mastered version of my latest homemade album of originals. I used Console 1 extensively throughout.

https://mikecrowder.bandcamp.com/releases

It's free to download. It's also on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon music, etc. if you prefer another outlet.

I have those for over year or so in the Everything bundle and never found the time to try them out. Seems like a mistake.

I am new Console 1 user and quite like it so far. I angled the unit a bit and I also bought small 10" display to have it always visible. Cool to have UAD plugins as well, especially those which have small old GUI, they got a new life inside C1.
