S6 Overview

S6 Overview

 

The Avid S6 is the ultimate mixing surface that has been built around the needs of the modern audio engineer, as well as being constructed so that you can configure the S6 to suit the way you want to work.

The S6 is a modular control surface that brings together the best of the industry-leading ICON and System 5 product families, with superior ergonomics and intelligent studio control. And because it's built on proven technology and trusted by top audio professionals, you can complete and deliver the best sounding mixes possible, and faster than ever before.

With the Avid S6, you can choose a preconfigured system or build your own surface to suit your needs, with an array of faders, knobs, process and display modules. You can also add optional modules for surround and post mixing. Further personalisation can be achieved with a variety of accessories, from keyboard and script trays to speaker mounts.

The S6 can be scaled horizontally and vertically, so you can configure the S6 with the modules you need to fit your needs, your budget, and with room to expand in the future as your needs grow.

All S6 surfaces include a Master Touch Module (MTM), which provides touchscreen access and control. Choose between the S6 M40 or S6 M10, which both feature a tilting 12.1-inch multipoint touchscreen, eight adjacent rotary encoders, and dedicated knobs and keys.


Frame components—For desk mixing or freestanding

All modules need to be housed in a frame, whether you place S6 on a studio desk or give it a leg assembly to stand on. Depending on the number of modules you choose, your surface can range from mid- to large-format. There are a number of frame assembly items available, from a full leg assembly to create a freestanding surface, to different size frame buckets and blank panels.
