The next stage in live sound
VENUE has long been one of the most requested live mixing systems in the world. And now the legacy continues with VENUE | S6L. Gain unprecedented processing capabilities with over 300 processing channels. Get unrelenting performance and reliability through its advanced engine design. Mix faster and easier through modern touchscreen workflows. And work with way more plug-ins and Pro Tools track counts than ever before. When you need to present the best mixes possible, S6L delivers unmatched power, clarity, and customization to meet the demands of any gig.
S6L delivers unrelenting performance and reliability through its advanced engine design and backs it up with highly efficient touchscreen workflows and easy scalability to meet even the most demanding live productions. Like all VENUE systems, S6L provides onboard industry-standard plug-ins and Pro Tools integration, but with more processing power and track counts than ever before. Plus, with a comprehensive array of network and I/O offerings, you can easily configure the system for any application.
Sporting four multi-touchscreens, four banks of eight faders, and three banks of 32 knobs, the VENUE | S6L control surface gives you the extensive mix control that modern live sound mixing demands. The Master multi-touchscreen gives you access to the Universe and other pages for main output processing, mix and matrix routing, and many other parameters. A trio of Channel Touch modules provide you with Meters view, various Channel views, and Parameter view. The Master Live central module gives you all the functions you need in a mixer’s master section – fader banking, monitoring, recallable fader layouts, user-assignable flex-faders, and more, including a dedicated transport section for easy recording control. Each Channel Fader module gives you eight faders with channel and dynamics meters, and channel name displays with easy-to-see high-resolution OLEDs. You’ll also have all necessary channel controls at your fingertips including mute, solo, and safe functions. For total control of your sound, the Channel Knob modules provide 32 touch-sensitive, tri-color encoders for parameter control, individual OLED displays, a switch that allows selection of each knob individually and one that lets you insert or remove a knob’s specific parameter from your signal path.
Whether onstage or in a broadcast studio, live productions are more complex than ever, requiring truckloads of processing power to get the job done. The VENUE | S6L’s 192 channel-capable E6L-192 mix engine is up to the task and provides plenty of juice to spare. The E6L-192’s state-of-the-art real-time processing engine handles all routing, channel, and mixing functions for maximum stability and power. And the HDX-powered DSP engine manages all AAX plug-in processing, with full automatic delay compensation. This allows you to create massive, great-sounding mixes with a plethora of processing channels and mix busses, all while experiencing tight, robust plug-in performance. And because all of the processing happens inside of the E6L-192, there are no round trips to external servers. This ensures amazingly low latency.
An integral part of the VENUE | S6L, the Stage 64 rack goes beyond a mere stagebox. Offering more than just inputs and outputs, the Stage 64 has the tools and flexibility that professional engineers require to accomplish today’s productions. The demands for more channels, better sound, and built-in recording capabilities abound in today’s entertainment venues, houses of worship, broadcast productions, and professional AV environments. Avid’s VENUE | S6L is the system that will move you away from a pieced-together system that barely works, and towards one that will serve as a solid foundation for growing productions and advancing technologies. The Stage 64 rack serves this goal with 64 microphone preamps that deliver great sound, clarity, warmth, and presence, along with 32 outputs for monitor mixes, aux-fed subs, and zone mixing, giving you the output flexibility to send audio virtually anywhere you desire.
