Burlington, MA (September 14, 2016)—Avid has released the latest version of its Venue Software for its Venue S6L live sound console. Among new features and updates, the software release adds 128 track Avid Pro Tools recording and playback over Ethernet AVB; multiple user-definable fader layouts; Matrix Spill; support for the new MADI-192 MADI Option Card; and more.
The software gives engineers the ability to record and playback up to 128 tracks to and from Pro Tools over Ethernet AVB without requiring a separate interface. Meanwhile, the user-definable fader layouts feature lets users to create and recall up to 24 custom fader layouts directly from the control surface. Engineers can assign inputs, outputs, VCAs and groups to any fader, and recall them with the push of a button. Matrix Spill provides quick control of the members of each matrix using the faders.
Venue 5.3 also supports the new MADI-192 MADI Option Card that offers bi-directional MADI connectivity to a host of industry devices, including Waves SoundGrid systems. Engineers can now run Waves plug-ins alongside the S6L’s onboard AAX DSP plug-ins.
