VENUE | S6L—The Next Stage in Live Sound

Avid VENUE | S6L is a modular and scalable live sound system that offers unprecedented processing capabilities—with over 300 processing channels. S6L delivers unrelenting performance and reliability through its advanced engine design and backs it up with modern touchscreen workflows and scalability to meet any challenge.

We will also be demonstrating the new VENUE 5.7 software release for S6L that delivers the most comprehensive integration of Waves SoundGrid plug-ins found in any audio console, including:


  • Unmatched Waves plug-in integration and control from S6L’s arsenal of knobs and from within the VENUE software itself
  • Expanded connectivity and reliability with support for the new Avid Waves SoundGrid WSG-HD Option Card for the E6L Engine, including support for auto-failover redundancy when using two SoundGrid servers
  • More processing power with the ability to connect a Waves SoundGrid Server One or Extreme Server to run up to 128 voices of Waves Plug-Ins, with up to 1024 Waves SoundGrid plug-ins
  • Simplified setup and show file import with no external laptop required for setup, automatic delay compensation, and automatic conversion of legacy VENUE show files with Waves plug-ins—with all TDM instances of Waves plug-ins automatically converted to SoundGrid, including settings and routing


Be sure to drop by and get a demo and discover why tours, installations, and leading sound companies around the world are embracing VENUE | S6L.
