Profile Console Features

VENUE Profile

The Profile console is a compact, space-conscious alternative to the flagship D-Show console. Like D-Show, it offers complete ease of set-up and use but in an extremely compact form factor, making it ideal for applications where space is at a premium, with little sacrifice to tactile control. Profile works in conjunction with VENUE software (the common software platform on all Avid live sound systems), offering a general purpose interface (GPI), which allows the console to interact with external equipment and commands, and is fully compatible with FOH Rack, Stage Rack, and Mix Rack components.

The console's compact footprint allows Profile to fit into venues where space is a challenge without compromising the power, sound quality, and flexibility for which Avid live sound systems have has become known. And if you’re a current D-Show System user, Profile provides a compact mixing alternative that works with your existing system, allowing you to scale your console to any application.

One Software Platform—Total File Portability

All Avid live sound systems operate under one common platform—VENUE software, the industry’s easiest yet most comprehensive control software. VENUE software sets new standards in operational efficiency and workflow, giving youe  instant access to and full control over any function of the system. Just a simple button push on the console or click from the screen gives you access to inputs, outputs, show files, snapshots, patchbays, plug-ins, and more. And because all Avid live sound systems share this same software platform, you can create and load show files for use on any Avid live system; no need to learn new software or build new show files if you switch consoles or re-scale your system.
