Avid Everywhere Redefines Live Sound and Studio Production Workflows

Company Unveils New Compact Live System in the Avid Artist Suite, Providing Unprecedented Versatility, Reliability and Value for Stage, Studio and Beyond

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBC (Hall 7, Booth #J20) -- Avid® (OTC:AVID) today announced the Avid VENUE | S3L-X compact live sound system, building on the success of the Avid | S3L system to deliver on the Avid Everywhere™ vision. With the new system, live sound professionals can more easily meet the increasing scope, size, complexity, and diversity of today's live sound requirements. Avid VENUE | S3L-X enables engineers to mix and record live shows with unrivaled power and efficiency, and create new material or mix down live recordings for commercial purposes.

When used together, Avid VENUE | S3L-X and Pro Tools® | Software—both part of the Avid Artist Suite of solutions and powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform—deliver the most streamlined, economical, and tightly integrated approach to mixing and recording live productions.

"Live sound professionals face tight budgets, pressure to get more value from their assets, and a multitude of technology choices," said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of Products and Technology at Avid. "When we first introduced the S3L, our customers immediately embraced it at major festivals, clubs, and tours for its sheer sound quality, power, and mixing creativity. Now with the Avid VENUE | S3L-X we're enabling them to use one system for both live sound performance and mixing down final assets to monetize."

The system delivers expanded networking, control, and processing to meet a range of live performance demands.  Customers can reduce complexity and cost by sharing the same I/O across multiple S3L-X Systems, with full automatic gain compensation. With support for 64-bit AAX DSP plug-ins, plus the open EUCON and Ethernet AVB network protocols, Avid VENUE | S3L-X ensures compatibility with a variety of Avid and third-party products—now and in the future.

Avid VENUE | S3L-X features new VENUE 4.5 software—the industry's most proven and trusted live sound software platform—and allows live sound professionals to:
