Avid VENUE S6L - Live Sound & Recording - Equipment - Rental

Tools to perfect our work

Avid VENUE S6L live audio mixing system, recording and peripherals. We use those tool packages and provide them also to sound engineers and artists and help perfect their work.

The next stage in live sound

Firstly, Avid VENUE S6L delivers great performance, processing power and sound clarity. Mix and record live productions of any size with ease. Also Direct AAX and Waves plug-in support and 128 tracks of Pro Tools recording are features of the S6L unified platform. Secondly, Venue Systems are reliable through any live production. Artists and engineers rely on to present the best show possible. Therefore they are one of the most requested live mixing systems in the world. However, we’ve grown into the VENUE platform heavily.
Above all, with our work in live sound we do understand the special demands of live audio with the importance of high-quality, and reliable audio capture.
