Avid have introduced the new S3L System, a modular mixing system with a 16 fader control surface that can handle up to 64 input channels. The system is comprised of a high-performance HDX-powered mix engine running VENUE software and AAX DSP plug-ins, scalable remote I/O, a compact EUCON-enabled control surface, and Pro Tools® software for integrated live sound mixing and recording. Bus structure is 24 aux busses, LCR, plus 8 mono matrixes and 8 VCAs.
Paired with the control surface is the Stage16 remote I/O, providing 16 mic/line in, 8 line out and 4 AES3 out. The system connects digitally via AVB, with Neutrik EtherCon connectors for durability. Up to 64 channels of audio can be recorded or played back over the AVB network directly from a computer’s LAN port. There’s also a handy 2 track USB player and recorded built in to the surface.
Avid S3L will be available at Avid resellers worldwide around August. Avid S3L starts at AUD$19,799.
