Softube console 1

Any good?
It just got a huge price drop, I am wondering if it would be a good way to go about mixing a mostly otb setup while still easily integrating it into ableton live.
Any one have any real world experience with one? Or heard any thing great about them?
Also it seems hard to come by, not a lot of dealers it seems.

Re: Softube console 1

The metric I would use is - have they added windows support and additional channel strips as promised since release? If not, I'd be concerned about future support, but if they're regularly adding stuff to it, it could be a good ecosystem to get into.

Yes to windows it seems, the rest I don't know enough about the system to judge.
Ergo why I am asking

Re: Softube console 1

I think it's great.

A few years ago when I did lots of mixing for rock bands, that would have been the shit. Instead I got carpal tunnel syndrome.

Edit: by the way... to all the younger ones out there in their 20's or something ridiculous like that, well, if you already feel that mice, trackballs, trackpads etc are causing you joint and tendons pain, strain... Do something about it sooner than later. Designated controllers and touchscreens are where it's at. Don't let it get bad like I did. Invest.

Re: Softube console 1

I owned it for a while, really liked it. Super nice feeling rotaries, barely had to look at them it was so intuitive with the layout. Can't believe there aren't more products like it, giving a middle ground between software and hardware. If only it was realtime DSP for hardware!

BUT it was buggy in Studio One, which was weird because apparently S1 is the most supported and integrated DAW for C1. Maybe that's been ironed out now.

I sold it because I needed the money would defo buy again in the future

Re: Softube console 1

I have a console 1 and absolutley love the hands on tactile approach of mixing. It integrates nicely with Sonar Platinum and will soon be able to host some UAD plugins, which I am looking forward to.

So are you able to pre mix some stuff without using your DAW? As in if I am just messing around with my hardware?
And the once you tracked stuff out then dive into the actual mixing?
Thx

Re: Softube console 1

Not sure I understand what you mean. Console 1 is a VST that you use inside your DAW, there is no standalone option.

It is not standalone or real time DSP like a UAD interface. It's a VST with a dedicated controller. It has to be used within a DAW.

As far as I can tell, the collaboration with UAD just means all UAD software will have the most important controller messages mapped to the C1 when they are loaded within the DAW, which would mean realtime DSP with the knobs but not through the C1 software.

C1 can be run without the hardware, but as far as I know you need to have the hardware plugged in first and then unplug it to do this.

Hmmm, interesting, not quite what I was hoping for.
Still looking for a solid mixing system to integrate with what I got now!

If you watch the videos on the Softube youtube page (say that a few times after a drink ) you will be able to drop these in to the workflow of Console 1. So you could have a transient shaper, followed by a UAD EQ, followed by a Softube Compressor or any variety of the above. It is therefore not just a case of mapping some of the controls but making them part of the signal path.

Good to know. I received an email from Softube recently notifying me of the UAD Integration update. Really wish I didn't sell the C1 now!
