I often get to the point in a mix where having just eight faders & controls, on a small surface or touchscreen, starts to seriously impinge on my speed and efficiency. There are always compromises with small control surfaces. Has iCon managed to make these compromises in the right places?
Should you buy a PreSonus Faderport 8 control surface to use with Pro Tools? Russ takes it for a spin and is surprised by the results.
In this review, Paul Drew takes a look at the Softube Console 1 British Class A Channel Strip using Presonus Studio One.
You can add body and character to your tracks with this Softube Console 1 strip inspired by classic British units from the 60s and early 70s. Paired with the workflow and hands-on control of Console 1, British Class A has been designed to give you the perfect mix solution for the DAW-based studio.
PreSonus make some very cool stuff these days with everything from their hugely popular digital mixers to audio interfaces and monitor controllers, live sound equipment as well as their DAW Studio One.
As I’ve already said, I’ve never been a fan of control surfaces, I always find myself looking at the screen and that then defeats the object of using them in the first place, however this was not the case with the Console 1, in fact I had been mixing for some time and the screen on my Mac went to sleep. I was mixing with my ears!
