The Avid S4 is simply different class. The time I save when working with the S4 makes this console worth it's weight in gold. I have more fun working than I ever had using a large format analogue console. In this video I discuss why the Avid S4 is such an important part of workflow.
Accelerate your mix
Avid S4 boosts your tracking, editing, and mixing efficiency, giving you direct hands-on access and control over a host of software functions, parameters, and project navigation. Create better mixes with more precision than working with a mouse and keyboard alone.
Work with multiple DAWs
Expand your creative capabilities with a versatile solution that accelerates music and audio post workflows across Pro Tools | Ultimate, Nuendo, Pyramix, Logic Pro, Cubase, and other audio software. You can even mix tracks from two different DAWs simultaneously, enabling hybrid mixing.
Customize the surface for your needs
With its compact, semi-modular design, you can configure S4 with up to 24 faders—plus three module options that offer dual joysticks, PEC/Direct controls, or additional knobs—to meet your workflow needs, without dominating studio space.
Get unmatched hands-on control
S4 is EUCON-enabled, providing deep DAW integration and control, so you can mix faster and more intuitively with an ergonomic surface that acts and feels like a physical extension of your software. No matter what DAW you use. And with the latest EUCON software, you can open and close Pro Tools Folder Tracks right from the surface, greatly speeding up session navigation.
Mix with confidence
Get unprecedented visual feedback of your mix—including Pro Tools waveforms and advanced metering—with support for up to four Display Modules, enabling you to make more informed mixing decisions.
Create Dolby Atmos mixes with ease
Experience the most efficient hands-on Dolby Atmos mixing workflows in the industry when paired with Pro Tools | Ultimate, providing extensive integration for faster project turnaround. Plus, its compact size makes it easy to outfit smaller rooms for immersive audio.
Get comprehensive monitor control
Easily assign and control talkback, listenback, and speaker sources and levels right from the surface to handle everything from simple cue mixes for music recording, to monitoring immersive audio projects.
Get super-simple setup
Get up and running quickly with the fully integrated Channel Strip Module and preassembled 3-, 4-, or 5-foot frame, streamlining configuration and setup.
