System Requirements for Console 1

Console 1 is available for both Windows and Mac OS X. Here are the system requirements:

Common for Windows and Mac OS X

  • Screen resolution 1280x800 or larger
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended
  • 1 powered USB 2.0 compatible port
  • Softube/Gobbler account
  • iLok account
  • Internet access for downloading software and managing licenses
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use an iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement)
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - and our own rigorous testing standards - we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

Please Note: Softube plug-ins support 64-bit hosts only, and a 64-bit OS is required. Therefore, for example, Pro Tools 10.x is no longer supported (contact support for latest 32-bit compatible instalers).

Mac OS X specific

  • Mac OS X 10.12 or newer (older OS versions may work but are not tested)

Windows specific

  • 64-bit Windows 7 or newer
  • Intel Core Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or newer

  • Sonar (latest version) (VST3)
  • Cockos REAPER 5.50 (VST3)
