Softube Console 1 Fader DAW Controller

DAW controller featuring 10 touch-sensitive motorized faders and two fanstastic sounding component-modeled console emulations
MFR# SFT-FADER

Product Description

Building on the success of their Console 1 which redefined DAW mixing, Softube presents the 10-fader Softube Console 1 Fader.

The Console 1 mixing ecosystem is so much more than a simple DAW/plug-in controller. It’s an efficient, elegant, and amazing-sounding modern mixing solution, combining hardware and software to give users the best of both worlds: the versatility, affordability, and usability of in-the-box mixing, alongside the workflow, feel, and focus dedicated hardware can bring.

There are many ways to mix a masterpiece, but riding faders is a matter of muscle memory for a lot of us. And for good reason – reaching out and grabbing five or ten different sounds or groups at once, and quickly adjusting, listening, adjusting, listening, balancing... it’s a full-body discipline, and software alone can’t come close.

Ten touch-sensitive 100 mm Alps motorized faders give premium professional feel and feedback, while the weighty powder-coated steel chassis means durability and substance in a sleek Scandinavian design.

Fader includes two software-based component-modeled analog console emulations, Tube and Discrete. Way more than a clinical digital tool, Fader enriches sounds in the same ways as a true analog console, from filtering to saturation.

Tapping into the same purpose-designed software environment as the original Console 1 channel strip controller, Fader brings new levels of control over the wider world of mixing. Ride up to ten channels at once, working volume, high-and-low-cut filter values, drive and drive character (modeled desk saturation), and more. Then page up for ten more channels. And ten more, giving easy access to the whole mix, even when tracks number into the hundreds.

The single knob on Console 1 Fader offers control of pan per track, but also unlocks a powerful stereo spatialization tool, to widen or consolidate individual tracks, situating each sound perfectly in the mix.

Better still, with Softube's innovative new Layer Mode the user can create layers of tracks, putting many levels of mixing at their fingertips. Fader can easily low cut all the guitars at once, or saturate groups early on for a top-down effect in seconds.

Console 1 Fader can be used alone, or in combination with the original Console 1 channel strip controller for a tight ‘complete desk’ experience. Multiple Fader units can even be used together to build the ideal workflow for a specific studio.

Improving feel and workflow, and making the best of hardware and software available in one place, Fader allows users to raise the sound quality bar to new heights. Mixing a masterpiece isn’t easy, but with Console 1 Fader it’s a new kind of joy.

Features:

  • A ten-fader approach to Console 1 hybrid hardware/software mixing ecosystem
  • High quality hardware, designed and built for both feel and function
  • Take fast and intuitive control of volume, saturation, filtering, and more
  • Two awesome-sounding component-modeled console emulations included
  • Expand your sonic options with Console 1 expansion channel strips (sold separately)
  • Layer Mode allows you to organize and affect your mix in powerful new ways
  • Spatializer tool offers fast per-channel control of stereo width
  • Works with all major DAWs straight out of the box – no MIDI-mapping required
  • Use alone, or in combination with the original Console 1 channel strip controller

Life changing is the only way to describe Console 1. I say this because this is the way mixing in the box should be from start to finish. This is single handedly the very best business decision I've made ever...

The machine is a beast really enjoying it

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
