Avid VENUE 7 Enhancements Provide the Power and Flexibility Needed for Sound Engineers to Deliver High-Quality Performances
Avid VENUE software now supports I/O sharing across three Avid VENUE | S6L systems, providing more workflow flexibility while reducing costs and complexity without any negative impact on sound quality. Support for I/O sharing makes it easy for users to add a broadcast console or second monitor console to their setup or enable fast switchover at festivals and concerts. With I/O sharing, microphone feeds can be split digitally over the network so engineers only have to build one set of I/O racks, providing significant cost savings for touring productions and reducing setup times. Plus, all I/O configurations fully support Avid’s True Gain technology, which automatically manages gain compensation to ensure proper signal levels are maintained for each engineer.
In an industry first, Avid also announced that users can now send and receive up to 128 channels of audio between Avid VENUE | S6L systems and Milan™ (media-integrated local area network) certified devices – including loudspeakers, amplifiers and other pro audio devices – with the new MLN-192 Milan Option Card and latest Avid VENUE software. Seamless plug-and-play connectivity lets users distribute audio with ease to
“As the world’s first live sound console to be certified by the rapidly growing
“In live sound you need reliability, rapid deployment, and high fidelity,” said
VENUE 7 also provides superior control of delay compensation to help users tackle plugin-heavy mixes with complex routing requirements. Aligning busses and matrixes is simplified through Automatic Delay Compensation (ADC) settings, while the new Input Delay Alignment command makes it easy to align selected input channels to compensate for any plugins inserted on those inputs. Using Avid’s True Time technology, this provides the most comprehensive alignment of audio signals of any solution on the market, ensuring more granular control and visibility over how delay gets managed across the system.
Additional new Avid VENUE software features include:
- Effortless USB recording and playback – easy 2-track recording and playback using a USB flash drive connected to the S6L control surface provides ultimate flexibility. Users can perform basic live stereo recordings, play back stereo tracks for pre-show entertainment or walk-up music, play music between acts, and even trigger sound effects or cues for theater performances.
- Mix more creatively and easily – new mixing features let users expand their creative possibilities. They can add analog warmth and color to mixes with HEAT available on every input channel, shape sounds freely with unlimited graphic EQs on all output busses, enable parallel mix control, or filter out frequencies with HPF and LPF on every output channel.
- Enhanced processing and routing possibilities – four new post-fader plugin inserts and one post-fader hardware insert on every input channel make VENUE 7 ideal for automixing workflows. 400 plugin slots available across all S6L systems and engines allow for better VENUE show file compatibility, while bus-to-bus routing offers the freedom and flexibility to route any Aux or Group to any other.
The new Avid VENUE 7 features and functionality are now available for all customers on an active support contract. For more information, visit Avid.com/S6L.
