Avid release S6 v3.6.1 update

Avid release v3.6.1. for the Pro Tools | S6 console

Apr 07, 2020 - 10:51


S6 owners who spend their time checking their Avid account may have noticed a new addition - an upgrade to v3.6.1.

Word of warning - this requires Pro Tools v12.8, which at the time of writing, has not yet been released. 

As well as your normal bug fixes,  v3.6.1  supports Dolby Atmos® busing, panning, and metering in Pro Tools, providing intuitive feedback and ergonomic control for Dolby Atmos parameters. Two-dimensional (2D) and 3D/Theater Mode views are available. Combined with Pro Tools v12.8, the integration is quite extensive. If you want a closer look, check out Mediaspec's short instructional video, presented by Avid's Simon Sherbourne.

Other new features include:

  • New Features for Expand Faders
  • Soft Keys
  • Resetting User Preferences to Factory
  • Monitoring - Icons for DADman Monitor Tracks
