Softube releases Core Mixing Suite and free update for Console 1


Softube has released the Core Mixing Suite and a free update for Console 1. Here's what they're saying:

This biggest-yet update gives you the advancements of the latest generation of Console 1 software, and it's available via Softube Central at no cost to you.

New features include 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.

We've worked hard to ensure that Console 1 Mk I and Mk II users can access as many new features associated with Console 1 Channel Mk III as possible. We hope you enjoy these complimentary updates.

Core Mixing Suite: the new standard for mixing with Console 1:

Our quest to create the perfect channel strip is over. Core Mixing Suite is here and ready to put a hand-picked selection of high-quality processors in your hands so you can tackle any mixing or production task with confidence from your Console 1 Mk I, Mk II, or your new Channel Mk III hardware.

Core Mixing Suite lets you get the most out of the nine sections that the Console 1 plug-in now offers with exclusive new tools. You'll get access to preamp and filters based on our popular Tape plug-in. You'll have three times the shape processing power with Dual Dynamics, Core Panner, and Core Shape. Core Mixing Suite includes two new EQs — Modern & Vintage — plus three compressors based on our well-regarded FET Compressor Mk II, Bus Processor, and Opto Compressor plug-ins. Not to mention a brand-new harmonic drive.

With Core Mixing Suite, you get all the processing you could possibly need right at your fingertips without having to leave Console 1.
