Burlington, MA (November 17, 2010)—Avid has introduced its Venue 2.9 software, which focuses on Pro Tools integration via its new Venue Link feature, which elimnates some manual steps involved in making live recordings.
Also introduced is the new Redundant Output Mode, which works in conjunction with Venue option cards to deliver audio output to two Pro Tools systems simultaneously, or to mixed formats such as Pro Tools and MADI-equipped systems.
With Venue 2.9 software, customers can:
· Create a Pro Tools session from an existing Venue show; all track names and routing assignments are created automatically. This also ensures that all tracks are captured with 100% accuracy every time.
· Ensure that their Pro Tools session always matches changes to the live show by importing and updating track names from Venue to an existing Pro Tools session at any time.
· Identify key points in the live performance for subsequent remixing or use in Virtual Soundcheck by synchronizing Venue snapshots with Pro Tools markers.
· Create a backup system and get more routing flexibility with the Redundant Output Mode, which offers simultaneous recording of up to 64 tracks on two Pro Tools|HD systems for failsafe backup. Users can also record to a local Pro Tools system while also sending audio through MADI to another digital console or audio workstation.
· Get more I/O flexibility at the mix position with the Venue IOx Option Card, which now works with Venue Mix Rack—in addition to Venue FOH Rack— providing a total of eight analog inputs and outputs and eight digital inputs and outputs.
Venue 2.9 Software is available through Venue resellers as a $149 upgrade for all Venue owners. The Venue IOx Option Card is available now through all Venue resellers.
