Description

It’s here. One of the most highly requested components for Console 1 makes its debut. Introducing the Weiss Gambit Series for Console 1. A painstaking extraction of the top features from two of the most admired digital processors, Weiss DS1-MK3 and Weiss EQ1—plus characteristic extras—the result is the clean, sharp channel strip engineers everywhere have been waiting for.

Joining a storied slew of offerings in the successful partnership of Softube and Weiss Engineering, Weiss Gambit Series gives you the algorithms of the originals. But it also sports exclusive, high-end features such as below-threshold compression. Weiss Gambit Series channel strip for Console 1: created for mastering, now tailor-made for mixing.

Features:

  • Made for Console 1, our mixing ecosystem. Learn more about Console 1
  • A neat and clean channel strip based on 1:1 code ports of the Weiss DS1-MK3 and EQ1
  • Created in partnership with—and officially licensed by—Weiss Engineering
  • Fresh, new sound for the Console 1 ecosystem
  • Added functionality and features
  • Thoroughly unique below-threshold compression


New Sensations

The Weiss Gambit Series channel strip gives Console 1 users an entirely new way to play. Combined with other channel strips in the Console 1 ecosystem, Gambit Series gives sonically rich returns on investment. Deploy the SSL 4000 strip on the close mics of a drum kit and the Zener-Bender strip on the overheads and room mics. Drop the Weiss Gambit Series strip on the drum bus, utilizing some of that unique below-threshold compression to expose the details and tones between the hits. Then sit back and savor the sound.

The Measure of Mastering
The apex of mastering units since its launch in the 1990s, Weiss DS1-MK3 is an indispensable tool in studios around the world. Unrivaled versatility and incomparable sound quality have made it an essential ingredient in nearly every major record of the past two decades. While Weiss’ updates and improvements to DS1-MK3 have made it practically perfect, Softube + Weiss’s fully digital compressor/limiter/de-esser performs tasks that an analog unit couldn’t even dream of.

An Unequaled EQ
The renowned sonic qualities of Weiss Engineering’s EQ1—combined with its flexibility as either a Minimum Phase EQ, a Linear Phase EQ, or a Dynamic EQ—have made it the essential digital mastering equalizer since its release in 1996. The plug-in is a one-for-one, line-by-line code port of the original with state-of-the-art bonus features that give it increased functionality over the original algorithms, 32-bit / 192 kHz operation, and updated ergonomics.

Fringe Benefits
Softube’s exclusive partnership with Weiss Engineering comes with some pretty sweet perks. In creating the Gambit Series, we had the opportunity to work in collaboration with Daniel Weiss himself. Together we created features for the channel strip that make it a powerful mixing tool that can also be used for mastering. Features such as high/low pass filters, gate, expander, below-threshold compression, surgical equalizing, compressor, and limiter.

This Way Up
The most blow-your-mind component of the Gambit Series channel strip has to be below-threshold compression. As with any traditional compressor, above threshold refers to the dynamics processing for audio exceeding the set threshold. The below threshold, therefore, concerns the effect on the audio below the set threshold, as with a common gate or expander. So it follows that normal compression and expansion are called “above-threshold compression” and "below-threshold expansion". Gambit Series for Console 1 isn’t your everyday channel strip, though. It offers below-threshold compression and all the other gate, expander compression, and limiter features.
