Softube brings the legendary sound of Weiss Engineering's digital signal processors to the Console 1 platform with the Weiss Gambit Series. In collaboration with Daniel Weiss, the algorithms of DS1-MK3 and EQ1 were implemented into Softube's control system to combine the clear sound transparency of the hardware sound models with the efficient modernized workflow of Console 1.

The EQ1 contributes effective filters to the input section with four equalizer bands. The DS1 brings the algorithms to the compressor and easily turns the drive section into a limiter. In the Shape section, a special feature called "Below-Threshold Compression" has been integrated. This feature is especially useful for highlighting quiet signal components such as reverb tails.

I personally can't rate this product highly enough. For me it is the best of the best of the available Console 1 Consoles and I have them all bar one the *** Class A. I'm comparing it against all the rest I used it on the Master Bus, for that final tweak. Just in adding it with 'Default,' settings I could instantly here quite a difference in sound. It was brighter, tighter and more solid and there was immediately so much more clarity in the sound image Again, that was before I'd twiddled a single knob using the default setting. There was no additional coloring and it remained transparent throughout. Where would one use it, well I tried it on Individual Instruments, Group, Mix Bus and Master Bus and I felt comfortable using it on each. I never felt like I needed to swap it out for another Console But it worked best to my ears on the Master Bus, at the end of the chain and is likely to be, at least for me the go to Console for Console 1 on the Master Bus It adds to the magic of Console 1. Each Console adds a different flavor to the the mix. Simply add to taste. Weiss Gambit Series for Console 1 has found a place in my toolkit along with the rest. I highly recommend it, especially if you're looking for both clarity and transparency!
