Romania (October 14, 2020)—Zaor Studio Furniture has introduced its Zaor Softube Console 1 Frame, consisting of the Console 1 Base and Console 1 Top—a pair of specially designed frames for Softube’s Console 1 controller system. The frames are designed to fit the Console 1 and Console 1 Fader, aiding the real-world integration of Softube hardware into studio environments of all kinds.
The Console 1 Top attachment presents the controller at a 45 degree angle, so all controls are easily accessible. Designed with a visual nod towards the vintage analog consoles of yesteryear, the frames are nonetheless intended to support the modern day combination of digital workflow and analog feel.
The Zaor solution for the Console 1 consists of two pieces: Console 1 Base and Console 1 Top. The Console 1 Base holds one controller unit of the Console 1 system in a flat frame and fits both Console 1 and Console 1 Fader. The solid wooden structure tilts the surface by 16 degrees, providing access and an overview of all parameters. The available colors include black or natural oak. Several Console 1 Bases can be combined to create larger mixing surfaces.
The Zaor Console 1 Top is mounted to the back side of the Base unit and can hold one Console 1 controller. Even though it is possible to install both Console 1 or Console 1 Fader units, the most common way – and the one that most closely resembles the feeling of a classic analog console – is to install the faders in the Base and the control knobs in the Top.
