For many years, Live Sound Engineers have depended on their Avid VENUE systems to "run the show". Now Avid introduces the latest VENUE system, S6L.
Based on the same DSP platform as Pro Tools HDX, the modular S6L is designed to take on the largest Live environments, or the most intimate, with ease. To bring the sound into your hands, this new system is fully "touch" capable with high-resolution touchscreens and OLED displays which are visible in sunlight/daylight conditions (this is a huge must for anyone working outdoor festivals).
The highlight of this new system is the E6L Audio Engine. This engine handles all the routing, channel, and mixing functions, as well as the AAX plug-in processing. It does this by using the same DSP engine as Pro Tools HDX. The new engine allows you to run the same plug-ins as you have in the studio, along with full automatic delay-compensation! Holy Wow!!!! This provides an entirely new level of Pro Tools integration with the Live Sound world. You can record/playback up to 64 audio tracks via Ethernet AVB.
