Avid® announced the immediate availability of a new control surface, processing engine, and I/O rack option for its expanded Avid VENUE™ | S6L unified live sound platform. The Avid VENUE | S6L-24C control surface, Avid VENUE | E6L-112 engine, and Stage 32 I/O rack are the first releases out of six new components announced in April 2018, providing sound companies and performance venues with greater flexibility to configure the perfect system to meet any production, space or budget requirement. Here’s a video introduction to the Avid VENUE | S6L unified live sound platform:

The fully modular Avid VENUE | S6L delivers best-in-class functionality for a wide-range of applications including front-of-house, monitor, broadcast, and theater. Avid VENUE | S6L is the industry’s only live sound platform that offers 100% software, hardware and show file compatibility, enabling engineers to scale systems up or down to meet their changing requirements for control, processing, and I/O. Because the VENUE | S6L platform features the same VENUE software and workflows across every model, engineers are presented with an identical user experience regardless of system configuration, allowing them to focus on helping their artist to deliver the best performance possible.

“SSE have been ambassadors for S6L since its launch, utilizing the 32D and 24D consoles in hire stock as well as supplying systems to various UK rental outfits,” said Alex Penn, Sales Director at SSE Audio Group. “These latest additions make the S6L platform a realistic option for a much larger customer base. We’ve championed S6L as we love the system’s functionality, and now with an expanded range we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of them being used at all levels.”

“We’ve had great success with the S6L and think that it’s the mixing platform of the future—that’s why we’ve invested in 10 S6L systems to date,” said Bernd Wittenberg, Managing Director, Go Audio Rental GmbH. “The new surface and engine offer even greater flexibility for limited truck and trailer space and budgets, but with maximum audio performance.”
