Apollo Central For Console 1

Softube's Console 1 can now improve not only your mixing workflow, but your recording workflow as well, with a free software update allowing deep and intuitive control of the UA Apollo Console software.

Apollo Central is included for all Console 1 owners, and is easily activated by holding Shift and pressing the Mode button on Console 1.

The Greek god Apollo is said to inspire songwriters, and he's now getting help from us here in Sweden: Now you can control Apollo Console with Softube Console 1 at the touch of a button.

Console 1 now gives Apollo interface users fast hands-on control over all of the most critical functions for tracking and mixing. From level setting Unison preamps to applying Realtime UAD Processing, it's all right there at your fingertips, and a joy to use. This makes Console 1 a supremely powerful tool for Apollo-based audio production.

Low latency monitoring and real-time plug-in control at your fingertips gives you the ultimate UAD workflow. So, if you haven't tried it yet, operating your Apollo with a physical console instead of a mouse is a completely different experience.

Console 1 and UA Console working together in harmony while tracking with Apollo and UAD plug-ins? What's not to like?

Time for Apollo owners to get themselves a Console 1
If you own an Apollo interface, you will now be able to switch modes within the Console 1 on-screen display and affect preamp gain, volume, pan, send levels and more in UA Console.

You can load plugins and presets without touching a mouse, and control near-zero-latency guitar amps, reverbs, compressors, even Unison enabled preamps, using physical knobs, pre-mapped and laid out right there on your desk.

Track with real-time effects; create and send headphone mixes; import and adjust a vocal chain; all with a hands-on analogue feel and a fingertip workflow. You'll save time, you'll enjoy yourself, and you'll do better-sounding work than ever.

In short

  • Channel settings control, such as Volume, Pan, Mute, Send and Rec/Mon
  • Preamp settings control, such as Low Cut Input Gain and also control of Unison plug ins
  • Plug-in inserts control. All UAD plug-ins come pre-mapped to the Console 1 hardware
  • Output monitor track control
