The Softube Console 1 MKII Software Mixer is a totally unique hybrid between hardware and software. The Console 1 gives the best of both worlds, and redefines mixing in the DAW-based studio.

Quickly switch between your tracks and control EQ, compressor, gate and more. Mix with the sound of the included Solid State Logic SL 4000 E. Or customize your channels to fit your needs — there are over 70 Console 1 ready plug-ins available from Softube and Universal Audio.

Console 1 works with every major DAW on the market
Studio One, Cubase, Cakewalk by BandLab, Reaper, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Pro Tools and more. Presonus Studio One, Steinberg Cubase, Cakewalk Sonar and Cockos Reaper feature additional integration: select tracks and control their pan, volume, sends and more directly from the hardware.

Full Integration with Logic Pro
Softube worked directly with Apple to implement a software update that takes full advantage of a new control protocol within Logic Pro. The setup for this is automatically done by Logic Pro. Now control of volume, pan, solo, mute, and your sends does not require the Console 1 plug-in! 

Control over 70 plugins by Softube and Universal Audio
Mix and match units from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios and many others.

Expansions: add more consoles to your arsenal
In addition to the included SSL 4000 E, there are entire channel strips available, with EQ, compressor, gate and modeled saturation from the original analog hardware.

Bundle and Save
The Softube Console 1 works seamlessly with the Softube Console 1 Fader. Adding the Fader gives you more of the complete “console” experience. Especially if you enjoy using faders, check out the Console 1 Fader as a perfect addition to the Console 1. We created a Front End Audio exclusive Softube Console 1 and Fader Bundle where you can get the Console 1, Fader, and a custom made ProSoCoustics stand for both to be mounted together - all discounted at a bundle price!

New Complimentary Update for Console 1 MKII Users
Console 1 MKII users now get a free complimentary update that includes a completely reworked interface that allows you to change sections directly from the plug-in with visible sections in the On Screen Display highlighted in the plug-in interface. In addition, the Console 1 plug-in now offers nine different sections, including a Tape section and secondary EQ, Comp, and Shape sections that are only available from the plug-in interface. And as a separate purchase from Softube, Softube's new Core Mixing Suite will be available. Core Mixing Suite lets you take full advantage of the nine sections that the Console 1 plug-in now offers. You can make the most of tape, filters, three shape processors, two equalizers, three compressors, and a drive section. Plus, you'll get the sounds of popular Softube plug-ins like Tape, FET Compressor Mk II, and Bus Processor.

    When I want to get away from using my mouse in Pro Tools I like using this Console1 it’s very well integrated with softube Plug Ins, and helps me to not have to look at the screen all the time when mixing

    Knobs, operation, software, construction, price. Very good buy. It does not work with all the UA plugins, I hope they improve that part. But the product is very good, it improves the work flow a lot.

    Sweet Sound

    I owned a SSL 4000 for 12 years the Eq in console 1 is scary close !!! And at 499.00 what!!!

What We Think


I bought the Softube Console 1 after watching Chris Lord Alge mix on his SSL 4000E Console and it didn't take long for it to become a huge part of my workflow. With Console 1, you're given hands on control of all EQ, compression, and volume adjustments. The SSL E Channel Strip that comes with the Console 1 sounds great but you're able to expand and use a number of equally awesome channel strips that emulate other famous consoles from companies like API, Trident, Weiss and more! Each channel strip also has a drive feature that emulates the analog character they're each known for. You can decide how much of that character you want per track. The workflow is easy and fast! Simply add Console 1 to the tracks in your daw and start mixing! You're able to cycle between tracks easily with the top row of buttons or by siumply clicking on a track. The plugin GUI is gorgeous and there's a nice RTA for the EQ section. If you're looking to get away from the keyboard and mouse workflow and get a little more hands on with your music while adding some nice character, check out the Console 1!
