Using The Electra One as a channel strip controller

I’m a big fan of that Console One interface but its a bit pricey and you are limited to the Softube plugins. So I just set up a channel control strip to control some of my favorite tracking plugins.

This is my strip with True Iron, Kuassa EVE-AT1, and DC8C3 (easy Mode). (Saturation, EQ & Compression)

Works fairly well. Would like to have the values from Ableton printed in there. This would be possible with OSC functionality or maybe there is even a better way?

Still once I understand how this works I can move fairly quickly across the tracks and mix away! I’ve only performed one mix so far but was very excited to share!

I also have a sidecar Faderfox LX1, to select tracks, add various plugins.

Its all connected via CLYPHX Pro which makes it very quick to do the mapping with their binding Addon. Clyphx also allows me to program all the buttons on the LX1 to various tasks in side ableton. Selecting Channels, SOLOing, Adding plugins, Navigating between Locators, Switching playback modes(Loop)… etc.

I’ve never done a full mix like this without the keyboard and mouse and now I can do most of it from here. I might consider adding pages for send plugins or some other things. Maybe someone has some more ideas for me :smiley:.
