S4 offers more compact and affordable S6 workflow

The Avid S4 is a new audio control surface designed for independent music mixers as well as smaller audio postproduction and music facilities. A semi-modular console, the S4 includes the DAW integration and visual feedback of the Avid S6, along with a more streamlined and compact control surface aimed at the budget conscious.

Avid’s high-speed Ethernet control protocol, EUCON, allows the S4 to connect and communicate with first- and third-party audio, video and monitoring applications. Acting as a physical extension, the S4 is built to integrate with any EUCON-enabled DAW, such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix, Logic Pro and Cubase, among other audio software. Engineers are able to assign and control talkback, listenback, and speaker sources and levels from the surface to manage everything from cue mixes for music recording to monitoring immersive audio projects.

When it comes to visual feedback, the S4 has the ability to display a range of information, including channel meters, groups, EQ curves and automation data, in addition to scrolling high-res Pro Tools waveforms, which can be edited using the surface. With options from eight to 24 faders, and the ability to add displays, joystick, post and knob modules, the S4 has been designed to offer a flexible experience. When paired with Pro Tools | Ultimate, the S4 also offers hands-on Dolby Atmos mixing.

‘The Avid S4 is what smaller studios have been waiting for,’ said Joe Taupier, president of Westlake Pro. ‘Music mixers and small studios don’t have to compromise power and efficiency as they’re getting the same mixing power as the larger S6 control surface, but at a budget and size that meets their individual needs. The S4 provides the workflow versatility users need to take on any project – whether it be film, TV, OTT media, commercials or games – and the deep DAW and Dolby Atmos integration required to complete diverse projects on time and on budget.’
