We get a lot of questions about Console 1 availability, and here's an update on the situation.
2016 came with an increase in Console 1 demand that exceeded our expectations. The new British Class A channel, the Summit Audio Grand Channel adaptation, the introduction of DAW control capabilities for Studio One and SONAR, and the other software improvements stirred quite some attention and boosted demand for the product. At the same time, one of our suppliers ran into issues, which meant a gap in production and trouble keeping up with the increased demand. This is why there are currently only a few dealers left with Console 1 units for sale.
Some people naturally ask if this is the end of the product, and we'd like to be clear that it's not. The platform is very much alive, and we will soon reveal some updates that we know a lot of existing users will love and which will bring a large number of new users on board. We have completed some changes in the supply chain, and a new production round is underway. We expect it to be in stores towards the end of January 2017.
We'd like to thank our wonderful customers for the never ending stream of praise, critique and feature requests. You keep us on our toes and inspire us to baffle you with new cool products!
See you at NAMM 2017.
