The ID-CONSOLE

ID-CONSOLE is the “New flagship” by WK-AUDIO. Created in late 2009, the ID-CONSOLE substitute the well-known “ID-CONTROLLER” Hard- and software components are identical to the ID-CONTROLLER, but a well-known international product designer (www.deltaform.de) created an absolutely new chassis, and we replaced the encoder and rotary buttons as well as some key buttons. The result of this groundbreaking design update is a more professional and nice looking surface (o.k., we should have done this step some years before ….)

ID-CONSOLE by WK AUDIO is one of the most advanced software controller available today. Developed in tandem with Steinberg's Media Production software NUENDO, ID-CONSOLE ensures unprecedented levels of integration. The unique versatility and advanced usability concept make ID-CONSOLE suitable for any audio work, including post production, music tracking, broadcast and sound design.

Dedicated buttons for direct access to the groundbreaking NUENDO automation system as well as user definable layouts and function keys give access to just about any parameter within seconds. ID-CONSOLE will help you focus your attention where it belongs: on the audio you are recording, editing or mixing.

The basic unit alone features a large amount of direct hardware controls. You can step through and assign the available individual NUENDO channels or channel banks to the available hardware motor faders and encoder dials.
Using the optionally available Fader Modules, you can extend your direct control and access up to 96 channels at once.

An Edit section with a jog dial, its built-in multifunctional ASCII keyboard and trackball, its master section with talk-back, phones, 3x fold-back and a control room with input and output matrix, speaker select and surround reduction keys, the direct plug-in access and the advanced channel selection features really make the ID-CONSOLE superior.

Functions like Reverse and Expand set new standards in terms of workflow and usability. The intuitive Reverse mode allows the integrated keyboard to be used for functions such as track arming, Solo or Mute/CUT for channels 1 to 96, including optical controls. The stunningly effective Expand function instantly lays all channels belonging to a group on consecutive faders on the mixing surface, regardless of where they are located in the NUENDO project itself.

The ID-CONSOLE is made of premium hardware components. Precision engineered and hand-built in Germany, ID has been designed with absolute attention to detail, to give you not only full control but also absolute transparency in your project.


ID-CONSOLE is full compatible with Nuendo 6 (6.04 and higher) and Cubase 7 (version 7.04 and higher)

New LCD-Displays


The last step we decided to go is to implement new high-end 2x7 LCD displays, with more contrast and clarity. The second and nice effect is that we were able to create a new front panel design now - and the result is a more professional looking surface.
Beginning at July 2010, we deliver ID-CONSOLE with these new fantastic displays.
