Softube launches Apollo Central
Softube is proud to announce Apollo Central, a free software expansion that enables you to control your Apollo Console with Softube’s Console 1 at the touch of a button.
If you own an Apollo interface, you will now be able to switch modes within the Console 1 on-screen display and affect preamp gain, volume, pan, send levels and more in UA Console. You can load plugins and presets without touching a mouse, and control near-zero-latency guitar amps, reverbs, compressors, even Unison enabled preamps, using physical knobs, pre-mapped and laid out right there on your desk.
Track with real-time effects; create and send headphone mixes; import and adjust a vocal chain; all with a hands-on analogue feel and a fingertip workflow. You’ll save time, you’ll enjoy yourself, and you’ll do better-sounding work than ever.
“Console 1 and UA Console working together in harmony while tracking with Apollo and UAD plug-ins What’s not to like?”
So what is Apollo Central?
Apollo Central is a free software update for Softube’s Console 1 system, that allows Console 1 to control UA Apollo interfaces, and their dedicated console software. This brings the fast and intuitive workflow of Console 1 to the tracking process, making it just as easy and fun for Console 1 users to record great sounds as mix them. Does this mean that the Softube Console 1 is exclusive to Apollo? No – Console 1 can still be used as a mixing tool within any of the prominent DAW’s in the market.
