Console 1 Fader
Building on the success of the Console 1 hardware unit was never going to be easy. But, like you, we have ambitious dreams. To add even more advantages to the epic workflow that Console 1 brings, we asked, “Where can we go next?” The answer was clear. And the result is Console 1 Fader.
Improving feel and workflow—and providing the best parts of both hardware and software in one place—Console 1 Fader raises the sound-quality bar to exciting new levels. Mixing a masterpiece isn’t easy, but with Console 1 Fader there is no limit to what you can achieve.
The Art of Rock & Roll Science
When it comes to creating equipment that improves workflow and offers the highest quality sound, our reputation is rock solid—and long. Our partnerships with premium brands like Marshall, Tube-Tech, Chandler Limited®, and Empirical Labs have spanned decades.
Console 1 Fader is built on this legacy of creativity, passion, and attention to detail. Because to create tools that innovate, you have to have heart, soul, and Rock & Roll Science.
"Console 1 Fader has been a long time coming, but it reflects the careful thought and attention to detail that is Softube’s trademark. A very well thought-out companion to the original Console 1, it’s much more than just a fader controller."Features Editor, Sound On Sound magazine
Premium feel and feedback
The ten super-smooth, touch-sensitive 100 mm Alps motorized faders give you a professional feeling and feedback. The robust powder-coated steel chassis offers durability and substance in a sleek Scandinavian design.
Console 1 Fader includes two console emulations: Tube and Discrete. Way more than a controller, Fader enriches the sound of your tracks just as an analog console would.
New levels of control
For those whose instrument is the desk, Console 1 Fader is a Stradivarius. Fader gives you lightning-quick, uber intuitive control over volume, saturation, filtering, and more with features like track color coordination.
A Modern Mixing System
Combining hardware and software to give you the best of both worlds, Console 1 Mixing System delivers the versatility and affordability of in-the-box mixing, along with the workflow and feel of hardware. Use the hardware separately or together for a genuine desk experience. You can even use multiple Console 1 Fader units to build the ideal workflow for your studio.
