Small format, big mix
Get a streamlined yet versatile mixing system for the modern sound engineer. Based on the award-winning Avid S6 control surface, Avid S3 delivers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools, Media Composer, Logic Pro X, Cubase, Nuendo, Premiere Pro, and other EUCON-enabled audio and video software. All in a more portable and affordable surface. But don’t let its small size fool you. While it’s ideal for space-confined and on-the-go mixing, it packs enormous power to handle large sessions and turn around projects faster. Plus, it pairs perfectly with Avid Dock and the Avid Control app to extend your workflow further.
- Get full hands on control
- Access every aspect of your mix
- Plug in and record
- Gain great mixing flexibility
Gain better control over your mix whether you’re making music or sweetening soundtracks. Interact with 16 touch-sensitive, motorized faders to bring more life to your mix. Record-enable tracks right from the surface. Solo, select, and mute channels. Change automation modes. Navigate projects using the touch strip transport controls. And keep an eye on your levels with the built-in meters.
View, access, and adjust multiple facets of your music or soundtrack project quickly using the 32 touch-sensitive, push-button style rotary encoders. Use the top-row channel control encoders to make changes to inputs, inserts, sends, groups, and more. Use the second row of assignable channel encoders separately to control plugins, pan, EQ, compressor, and other parameters. And view names, settings, status, channel metering, and more through the 32 OLED displays.
No need to use a separate audio interface to record and monitor sessions. Avid S3 features a built-in 4-input, 6-output AVB Core Audio interface to connect your studio (Mac only). Record vocals and instrument performances through two high-quality XLR mic/line inputs and two TRS line inputs. And connect studio speakers, headphones, and other gear to four line outputs and one stereo headphone output.
Avid S3 supports EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with any EUCON-enabled application—and vice-versa. That means you can use it to control Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Pro, and other audio software to speed and ease recording and mixing tasks. And when paired with Avid Dock and/or the free Avid Control app, you gain full monitor control capabilities, touchscreen workflows, and customizable soft keys.
Today, anyone can create music at home, on their laptops, or on smartphones. But while low-cost recording tools have opened the gates to music creation and recording, it’s made it that much harder for professional and aspiring musicians, artists, engineers, mixers, songwriters, and producers to stand out from the crowd and be heard.
You need the best tools available to make your music come to life. That’s why nearly every top artist and audio professional uses Avid to create the most popular, most acclaimed albums, songs, and soundtracks. Plus, you can now get your music heard across the most popular streaming services in the world with AvidPlay in Avid Link.
