Avid has announced the availability of a new version of Avid Venue Software and new Avid Venue On-Stage iOS app for its Avid Venue S6L live sound system. Powered by MediaCentral, the software update and On-Stage app introduce new control surface and software workflows for monitor engineers.
Available at no charge to Avid’s live sound customer community, the new Avid Venue On-Stage app gives monitor engineers using S6L the ability to remotely control any mix from any location. This enables monitor engineers to step away from their Avid Venue S6L system and fine tune individual monitor mixes while walking around on stage, hearing exactly what the performers hear. The app even allows up to 16 performers to take control of their individual monitor mixes using a rich user interface on an iPad, iPhone or iPod.
In addition to its On-Stage app support, Venue Software offers numerous new features and enhancements to S6L to make mixing monitors easier, including access to sends as well as access to members of a mix quickly with the new Sends on Faders button. Engineers can now also maintain the Aux, Group, Matrix, or VCA master fader position when spilling its members for better efficiency, and enjoy better visibility into VCA members in Meters view.
“As part of Avid’s commitment to our preeminent live sound customer community, this new version of Avid Venue Software delivers significant capabilities for monitor engineers, including support for one of their most highly requested features—the Avid Venue On-Stage app,” said Dana Ruzicka, vice president and chief product officer at Avid. “Combined with the powerful capabilities already in Avid Venue S6L, this software update makes the flagship Avid live sound console the choice for monitor engineers working in concert sound, touring and houses of worship all over the world.”
