Avid has now shipped its Avid S1 audio control surface.
Avid says the S1 delivers “the unparalleled speed, rich visual feedback, and software integration of Avid’s high-end consoles” but in a portable, slimline surface that retails at $1,295.
The surface provides similar control and visual feedback to the larger Avid S6 and Avid S4 powered by EUCON to give deep integration with Pro Tools and Media Composer plus native support for third-party audio and video applications like Logic Pro, Cubase, Premiere Pro, and others. Users can switch between multiple applications—and workstations—at the touch of a button.
Avid S1 integrates with the free Avid Control app for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones and has Avid S6-style metering and processing views.
Users can scale the surface by connecting up to four units together—and add an Avid Dock—to create a single extended and integrated surface.
“We designed the Avid S1 control surface with home or smaller studios and budgets in mind,” said Rob D’Amico, Director of Product Marketing, Audio & Video Solutions at Avid. “We strive to give customers the integrated hardware and software workflows they need to create the best sounding mixes. The Avid S1 enables users to create complex mixes without having to compromise on quality and opens up a world of capabilities never before possible with a control surface at this price.”
