Avid Announces SL3 Updates

News Image
Avid has announced updates to the S3L live sound system that provides customers with I/O sharing and gain tracking across multiple S3L systems, and greater flexibility to mix live shows with user-definable fader layouts and VCA and Group Spill.

The enhancements also enable sound engineers to use the S3 control surface standalone to mix Pro Tools (and other DAW) sessions, and features an updated operating system with support for 64-bit AAX DSP plug-ins.

"The latest S3L system enhancements deliver faster, more flexible workflows and significant cost savings," said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president of worldwide field operations, Avid. "When combined with Pro Tools for recording and mixing, the S3L helps us deliver on the Avid EverywhereTM vision for the media industry by giving customers powerful tools for creating, sharing, and monetising media more effectively than ever before."
When used together, Pro Tools and the S3L deliver integrated recording and mixing control of live or in-studio productions.Due to their being run on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, users have access to the Avid Marketplace where they can network, collaborate with other media professionals and even monetise their work.
Enhancements to the S3L are powered by major software updates, VENUE 4.5 and EuControl 3.2, and include:

I/O tracking and gain sharing
Customers can now share audio source feeds from one or more Stage 16 remote I/O boxes between up to three S3L Systems over Ethernet AVB. This enables engineers to take multiple S3L systems on the road but only have to carry one set of I/O boxes. Gain tracking intelligently manages gain levels across all networked systems to provide each user on the network with full independent control of input gain.

Improved surface navigation and mixing
Numerous enhancements improve surface operation, navigation and visual feedback, speeding up workflows by providing flexibility to mix live shows with user-definable fader layouts, VCA and Group Spill.

Ability to mix Pro Tools and other DAW sessions using the S3 control surface
Customers can now use the S3 control surface as a standalone studio controller and audio interface with Pro Tools and any other EUCON™-enabled digital audio workstation. This enables an engineer to mix down a performance in Pro Tools after a gig using just the S3 control surface and a laptop. The EUCON protocol – the same protocol used by Avid S6 studio consoles – delivers superior functionality and integration.

Updated operating system with support for 64-bit AAX DSP plug-ins
S3L’s updated operating system includes support for 64-bit AAX DSP plug-ins, giving customers access to all the latest effects and sound processors available.

VENUE 4.5 and EuControl 3.2 software updates will be available in Q3 2014 to current and new S3L customers at no cost through their Avid customer accounts.
