Softube Console 1 is a hardware/software system that runs alongside any DAW to provide direct tactile access to Softube’s plug-in model of the Solid State Logic SL 4000E channel strip. Having a plug-in inserted on every channel of your DAW’s mixer, the Console 1 system mimics a large analog console—every track plays through identical channel electronics.

It’s been four long years since Logic Pro 9 launched, and some were beginning to wonder if Apple had abandoned its high-end DAW. Logic has come a long way since its origins on the Atari ST in the 1980s. It gradually evolved into a Mac- and Windows-based MIDI sequencer and eventually into a Mac-only DAW soon after Apple acquired Hamburg-based developer Emagic in 2002. Along the way, Logic’s price has risen and fallen dramatically, while its capabilities have continually skyrocketed.
