Avid S6 Mixer
Avid’s S6 is more than just an unpowered mixer; it’s a console, it’s a DAW controller, it’s a new way to mix. With as little as 24 faders or as many as 64, there are versions of this unit for every type of scenario. While the S6 is specifically designed to interface with Pro Tools, it can also control other DAWs like Logic, Sonar, and Cubase. Multiple modules allow you to automate and improve upon some of your routine processes; the Fader Module offers 32-part LED meters per channel, along with a set of eight hot keys along the bottom of the section to give you handy shortcuts for your workflow. The Process Module allows you to control what each channel’s knobs correspond to whether EQ or dynamics parameters.
