The VENUE name is famous in the professional audio/video industry thanks to the power and prowess of its hardware/software combo. The VENUE | S6L is a live sound system that utilizes modular architecture. This means that its individual components can be mixed and matched, giving you the freedom to customize it to your liking! The Avid VENUE | S6L system gives you powerful performance and reliability, regardless of which components you choose!
We’ve got quite a few different offerings for this modular live sound system. First, we’ll examine the individual components. From there we’ll go into the special system bundles. Let’s take a look!
VENUE | S6L Control Surfaces
The Avid VENUE | S6L control surfaces are made to accommodate even the most modern of live sound workflows. You get quick and easy access to any area of your mix. Extensive, intuitive control is offered through various knobs, faders, buttons and touchscreen displays. The touchscreen technology functions as both monitor and interface and is able to show you meters while you select and adjust parameters. The high-resolution OLED displays and meters provide you with clear, visual feedback. All of the displays are daylight-visible, meaning you can see information even in bright, outdoor environments.
There are three variations of the VENUE | S6L control surface: the S6L-32D, the S6L-24D and the S6L-24. Each of these control panels have eight x eight XLR analog I/O and four pairs x four pairs of XLR stereo AES/EBU digital I/O. Each one of these also has two independent 1/4-inch TRS stereo headphone jacks, stereo record/playback functionality through a USB drive and dual redundant, internal hot-swappable PSUs. Ethernet AVB ports let you run your cables through either Cat5e or fiber optics (SFP). Here’s a quick breakdown of the differences between the three Avid control surfaces:

VENUE | E6L Engines
The Avid VENUE | E6L Engine is designed to outperform the competition. Think of it as the heart of your VENUE | S6L system. The engine utilizes two technologies: real-time processing and HDX-powered digital signal processing (DSP). The real-time processing handles all channel, routing and mixing functions. This helps the S6L operate with optimum power, stability and efficiency. The HDX-powered DSP handles all AAX plugin processing, including full automatic delay compensation. You can work at your peak potential thanks to high plugin performance and low latency!
