Ideal for a range of applications including front-of-house, monitor, broadcast, and theater, the S6L now offers more component options to configure and scale a system to meet any requirement.

With three new control surfaces, a new engine, and two new I/O racks – all on a unified platform, the expanded S6L family promises “unmatched modularity, scalability and flexibility to meet any size production, space, or budget”.

VENUE | S6L is also the industry’s only live sound platform with 100% software, hardware, and show file compatibility across all system components.

Avid also demonstrated Pro Tools | S6, a control surface for highly intuitive, immersive mixing workflows. An integral part of the most advanced studio systems in the world, Pro Tools | S6 offers an ergonomically superior and modular design, as well as Dolby Atmos integration for greater workflow capabilities. Other Pro Tools solutions on display at Prolight + Sound included HDX – for big mixing sessions, and MTRX – for flexible routing and integrated monitor control.

As well as it’s Prolight showcase, Avid also introduced demonstrated its new Pro Tools offerings in Musikmesse’s Studioszene – an interactive space for attendees to network and participate in workshops and presentations.

Visitors saw a comprehensive selection of Pro Tools solutions, including Pro Tools | Eleven® Rack, which offers versatile music recording and live performance experience for guitarists and bass players, as well as Pro Tools | HD Native – the highest performance host-based audio solution on the market.

The sleek and portable Pro Tools | S3 control surface was also on show, giving users powerful and versatile sound mixing for on-the-go workflows. Alongside the S3 was Pro Tools | Dock – a tactile precision control surface to quickly and easily navigate and control projects.
