NAMM 2017Softube announces Console 1 Mk II - Selected UAD Powered Plug-Ins Support and Lower Price

Softube has announced Console 1 Mk II — an upgraded version of its hardware/software mixing system, representing an enormous leap forward from its predecessor with support for selected UAD Powered Plug-ins from Universal Audio and a substantial, permanent price drop — at The 2017 NAMM Show, January 19-22 in Anaheim, California.

Console 1 Mk II addresses the most frequent user requests for the original version. Firstly, the new software — also available to owners of the first-generation Console 1 — makes it possible to use Console 1 with selected UAD Powered Plug-Ins from Universal Audio. There are now over 60 plug-ins that can be used from within the Console 1 system, including plug-ins based on units from Chandler Limited, Fairchild, Teletronix, Tube-Tech, Abbey Road Studios, and many more. The plug-ins are pre-mapped and easily selectable from the Console 1 software, so no MIDI mapping is necessary.

The MSRP has dropped from $849 to $499. The hardware has the same build quality as the original units, with some minor layout changes such as more visible LED markers.

All of these changes come in addition to the recently released software update, which added DAW control functions for Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk SONAR.

Greg Westall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Universal Audio, states: "Softube and Universal Audio share a lot of core values, like the importance of sound quality, ease of use, and a love for good music. Seeing that Universal Audio and Softube are longtime partners, and that Console 1 is a super intuitive control surface, it all just makes so much sense."

Oscar Öberg, President of Softube, comments: "The concept of Console 1 has been extremely popular, and we haven't been able to keep up with the demand. I'm excited that we finally are able to manufacture larger quantities of a Console 1 that's not only better but also a lot more affordable."

The new Console 1 Mk II units, and the software update with the UAD Powered Plug-Ins compatibility, will be available in Spring 2017. Upon release, existing Console 1 owners can download the updated software from www.softube.com and start using it with their Console 1-ready DAWs or plug-ins.
