AVID Venue S6L System Brings Stadium-Sized Performance With iOS Control

This hardware console packs an incredible amount of features into a small footprint, and now comes with updated iPad and iPhone control for ultimate flexibility.  

AVID's Venue S6L system is a surprisingly compact live sound mixer and control surface that pairs with the new VENUE 6.1 software to provide a high  level of remote control over every aspect of a live performance and mix. It's not exactly cheap, but then its specs are kind of off the scale. Here's what they have to say about it. 

Working in tight spaces? You can now run arena-sized shows on an S6L system that’s ultra-compact and easier to transport. With the new Avid VENUE | S6L-16C control surface, now available, you can configure a new system—or scale down an existing setup—and bring the incredible sound, performance, and efficiency of S6L to the smallest venues.

With VENUE 6.1 software, you can quickly access a host of parameters and views with just a single touch, increasing your efficiency. Get one-touch access to any channel parameter in your system with the Attention on Fader soft key. Access customizable Encoder Assignment parameters with a single button press. And open an expanded view of your Aux Sends with a tap, giving you fast access and better visibility into all of your aux assignments and statuses.
