  • Avid S3L System 32 Digital Mixing System Details

    Following on from the success of the VENUE range of Live Sound Digital Consoles comes Avid’s latest offering – the modular S3L Live Sound System.  Each system is built around the HDX-powered E3 processing engine (capable of running AAX plugins) and the S3 control surface (using EUCON) with upto 4 of the Stage 16 remote I/O boxes providing up to 64 inputs and 48 outputs all connected using a fault-tolerant Gigabit Ethernet AVB network.  The S3L uses the latest VENUE software (V4) making it accessible to many operators straight out of the box and when you combine that with Virtual Soundcheck and direct Pro Tools integration you have a winning combination.


    • HDX-powered processing leverages the power of the legendary HDX card found at the heart of most major recording studios.
    • AAX Plugins makes it easy to recreate the sound of the studio.
    • Easily expandable from 32 to 48 or even 64 inputs buy adding additional Stage 16 remote I/O units.
    • Ethernet AVB offers great reliability while making running cables a simple process using cheap and lightweight CAT5E cable.
    • Record your show direct on your laptop running Pro Tools simply via the Ethernet port, no interface required!
    • Each piece of the modular system is compact and easy to transport, any single piece is a single person lift and a full 64 input system can fit in most cars.
    • Show files are interchangeable (via USB key) between the S3L and any of the VENUE series consoles (software version dependant).
