Console 1

Console1 presents a simple, yet very powerful concept to the modern mix engineer and producer mixing ”in-the-box”. It combines a beautifully designed and built custom ”mixing channel”, specifically designed with ergonomics and workflow in mind, with an expertly measured - and SSL approved - software model of the great SL 4000E mixing console. This console has produced more hits than most other models combined.

The Console1 software acts as a simplified layer between your DAW and your fingers, rapidly speeding up workflow, and bringning back the use of your ears, rather than your eyes. The result? Better sounding mixes in less time!

Console1 integrates seamlessly with most DAWs, and particularly well with Presonus Studio One and Cockos Reaper, in that full channel control (level, pan and sends) of the mixer in these DAWs is available directly from the Console1 hardware. What's more, over 70 Softube and Universal Audio EQ and dynamics plugins can be selected from the Console1 channel strip, expanding the sonic capabilities beyond that of a straight up SL 4000 E (not included). There are several other ”full mixer” packs available as well, giving you the option to mix say on a classic 60's British console (rhymes with ”sleeve”) or the more agressive sounding XL 9000 K-Series, for instance.

 
 

TSAR-1

The TSAR-1 Reverb is not an emulation. It's not a stock design. It's not a static snapshot of a space. The TSAR-1 is a powerful, modern reverb algorithm. It's alive and vibrant, it's gentle and dreamy, and above all - it's natural and believable. The TSAR-1 is the better-sounding alternative to the established, traditional reverb products. At a fraction of the price.

The True Stereo Algorithm inside the TSAR-1 is what gives it its magic. The strength lies in its sophisticated sound and versatility, no matter whether it's used on strings and brass or rock drums and lead vocals, it always shines. All this while still having a comprehensive and easy-to-use interface that is unparallelled in other high-end reverb products.

TSAR-1 Reverb also includes the TSAR-1R Reverb.

 

Modular

Buchla and Moog started it all with their modular synthesizers in the 1960s. Doepfer made it affordable in the 1990s by introducing the Eurorack standard. Today, the Modular plug-in from Softube makes the modular synthesizer truly accessible to everyone.

Created in close collaboration with Doepfer, Softube Modular gives you both the sound, flexibility and expandability of a true analog modular synthesizer. But Softube Modular is more than just another virtual synthesizer plug-in —it's an entirely new modular synth standard.

As a Modular owner, the basic system gives you a great toolkit to start out with. It includes six modeled Doepfer modules and over 20 utility modules. But there is much more to discover. Additional modules from quality Eurorack vendors—starting with a range of units from cutting-edge manufacturer Intellijel—are available for separate purchase. More modules will continuously be made available. Owners of Softube's drum synth Heartbeat can add its instrument and EQ modules to Modular and combine them with any other modules. Softube's award-winning engineering team have modeled each analog module, component by component, and the resulting plug-ins are sonically indistinguishable from their hardware counterparts.
