Avid has announced the Avid S4 and Avid S1 control surfaces for use in smaller facilities and project studios.

Avid S4 control surfaceAvid S4 brings the power and workflows of Avid’s Pro Tools S6 control surface to budget-conscious audio professionals and small- to mid-size music and audio post facilities in an ergonomic and more compact package. It offers the software integration of Avid’s high-end consoles in a portable, slimline surface.

‘The Avid S4 and S1 control surfaces open up a world of capabilities never before possible for music mixers, smaller studios and educational facilities, answering our customers’ calls for the power, workflows and key functions of Pro Tools S6 in more streamlined and affordable in-studio solutions,’ says Director of Audio and Video Segment, Rob D’Amico. ‘Avid control surface, software, audio I/O, and monitoring capabilities combine to create a professional system with control and flexibility at the user’s fingertips.’

Designed for small- to mid-sized music studios and audio post facilities, Avid S4 delivers S6 workflows, providing an integrated use of any EuCon-enabled DAW, such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix, Logic Pro and Cubase. S4 also enables engineers to quickly assign and control talkback, listenback, and speaker sources and levels right from the surface to handle everything from simple cue mixes for music recording to monitoring immersive audio projects.

Avid S1 control surfaceS4 provides extensive visual feedback, with the ability to display everything from channel meters, groups, EQ curves, and automation data, to scrolling high-res Pro Tools waveforms, which can be edited from the surface. The semi-modular surface gives the flexibility to build a system for specific workflows, from eight to 24 faders, with the ability to add displays, joystick, post, and knob modules. When paired with Pro Tools Ultimate, S4 provides efficient hands-on Dolby Atmos mixing.

From recording and editing tracks, to mixing and monitoring in stereo or surround, S1 provides control and visual feedback necessary for any music workflow. Like the S6 and S4, the S1 is powered by EuCon to offer deep integration with Pro Tools and Media Composer, plus native support for third-party applications such as Logic Pro, Cubase and Premiere Pro.

With S1, users can easily scale a surface to suit changing needs, connecting up to four units together and adding Pro Tools Dock to create a single extended and integrated surface to suit any music, audio post or video project.
