Avid has announced the Venue S6L-48D control surface and Avid Venue 6.2 software for front-of-house, monitor, broadcast and theatre mixing.

Avid Venue S6L-48D surface/Venue 6.2 softwareFull software, hardware and show file compatibility across all of the Avid system components, there is a choice of five surfaces that offer from 16 to 48 faders. These can be paired with a choice of three engines, and connected to any combination of S6Ls four I/O rack options, enabling engineers to scale systems up or down to meet their changing requirements for control, processing and I/O.

The Avid Venue S6L-48D is the largest control surface of the S6L unified live sound platform, providing the extended control and ease users need in a large-format control surface. Featuring 48+2 faders, 160 assignable knobs, and six integrated touchscreens, the S6L-48D surface is suited to dual-operator workflows in live sound productions where quick access is paramount and sounds may be coming from any of thousands of sources, like large broadcast events and theatre productions. As part of the S6L Unified Platform, the control surface translates any show file to accommodate its larger frame size, and can be paired with any engine, and any combination of stage racks.

The latest Avid Venue 6.2 software gives easy and quick access to a host of parameters and views with just a single touch, increasing efficiency.

Dual operators–users can designate up to two fader zones on an Avid Venue S6L-48D, S6L-32D, or S6L-24D control surface, enabling dual-operator mixing for theatre sound, live broadcast events and other complex productions. It offers an effective way to handle FOH and monitor mixing on a single S6L surface, as well as speed sound design and show programming.

Assignable Encoder allow operators to touch or click on any parameter on the Avid Venue Inputs or Outputs page to immediately assign that parameter to the MLM Assignable knob. Any parameter that’s currently on the Assignable Encoder is displayed on the external GUI and highlighted in yellow. This allows users to quickly grab parameters such as an FX send on a vocal and keep it on that encoder while still navigating the console as usual.

Enhanced event triggers and actions expand customisation possibilities, allowing triggering of far more system interactions, and allowing events to change almost every editable parameter on the console to speed up a host of critical workflows.

The new Network Test Mode can be used as a diagnostic tool for system analysis, enabling users to confidently build their rig knowing that all aspects of the system are working perfectly. Avid Venue software also includes enhanced system logging capturing internal details within all AVB cards in the system, interaction details between all aspects of the network, as well as a simplified method for exporting logs.

‘With the Avid Venue S6L-48D control surface available, we are now shipping all of the S6L expansion surfaces announced last year,’ says Al McKinna, Avid Director of Live Sound Product Management. ‘And with the latest version of Avid Venue software, engineers and sound designers have new, advanced dual-operator workflows to handle large-scale concert performances, broadcast events and high-end theatre productions.’
