Avid at Prolight + Sound 2015

By in Live Sound, Music Creation

The upcoming Prolight + Sound 2015 in Frankfurt, Germany (April 15-18) will be a momentous show for Avid, marking the European debut of the new VENUE | S6L live sound system. As in previous years, we’ll be on the S.E.A. booth (our German distributor) in Hall 8, Stand G40A.

VENUE has long been one of the most trusted and requested live mixing systems in the world, and now the legacy continues with VENUE | S6L, a modular system designed to take on the world’s most demanding tours and events with ease. Offering 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.


Want to get a demo on the new S6L system at PL+S? Request a demo or meeting at the show. Note that spaces are limited.

We will also be offering hands-on demos of our VENUE | S3L-X and VENUE | Profile systems. Both will be connected to Pro Tools to show off VENUE’s ultra-streamlined recording and playback capabilities, including Virtual Soundcheck, which enables you to use live recordings to fine-tune mixes, program snapshots, experiment with plug-ins, and more.

We are honored to have two exceptional engineers joining us this year to demonstrate how they mix on Avid systems and share their insights and tips.
