Swedish audio manufacturer Softube has appointed MSL Professional as exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland. Known for its high-end audio plug-ins, Softube has recently entered the audio hardware arena with the Console 1. This uniquely designed hardware/software mixer solution can be used with any major Digital Audio Workstation. Offering hands-on intuitive control, its software component provides a full-featured mixer channel strip that can be inserted on any or all of the mixer channels in the DAW. The mixer hardware offers physical control of channel strip parameters, enabling a complete mix to be created without using a computer mouse. All settings are saved with the DAW project, ready for instant recall.
Softube's own brand of software plug-ins has been developed in collaboration with hardware manufacturers such as Trident Audio Developments, Valley People, Tube-Tech, Summit Audio and Tonelux Designs. Current products include a variety of channel strips, dynamics modules, effects, EQs and modelling amps. In addition to native versions of the plug-ins, Softube also offers versions that support Pro Tools HDX cards for Pro tools HD and the DSP on Avid live digital consoles, such as the Venue series.
Henrik Andersson Vogel, Marketing Manager at Softube, had this to say, "We are very happy to have teamed up with MSL Professional and I'm confident that they will be successful in establishing Softube in the UK and Ireland. I look forward to working closely with the team and also having an opportunity to meet dealers and users in the territory."
"We're absolutely delighted to be representing Softube in the UK and Ireland," says MSL Pro's Simon Lowther. "It's a fantastic brand with some truly innovative products, such as the Console 1, which offers something really special for mixing 'in the box'. The Softube range of plug-ins is also highly respected and used by pros worldwide in both studio and live situations, so we're relishing the opportunity of taking the brand forward over the coming months."
