Softube has just released the Console 1 MK II hardware/software integrated MIDI controller. The hardware integrates with large console (ex. SSL mixing desk) emulations and various Universal Audio plugins.
Future Music Reports:
The Console 1 hardware gives you hands-on control of EQ, compressor, gate, volume and pan on all your tracks. No MIDI mapping is needed—the hardware is tightly integrated with the Console 1 software, straight out of the box and works with most of the leading digital audio workstations.
Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk’s SONAR DAWs, however, feature enhanced integration. There are currently 60 UAD plugins that the system can control, but those are sold separately. The only included large console emulation included with the hardware is the SSL 4000 E Console.
The controller is available now for $499 USD.
