Accelerate your mixing

Though it resembles and functions like a traditional analog surface, the S5 Fusion control surface gives you more power and flexibility to mix faster and easier than ever. You can customize the surface for your project needs—from 8–56 channel strips. Each channel strip includes a multiformat, motorized fader, as well as eight touch-sensitive knobs for EQ, filter, compressor, expander/gate, Aux sends, and pan control, that you can also use to control DAW functions, including adjusting TDM, VST, and Audio Units plug-in parameters. Gain complete control of your mix using the master module and one that houses a display for the eMix software and twin joysticks. And with the high-resolution screens, you have instant visual feedback on your metering, track info, routing, and more.

Gain custom control

Bring what’s important closer to you. With Layouts, you can quickly access what you need by saving the position of sources on the surface at any given time for later recall. Always have the most important sources within easy reach by saving different Layouts—whether you want to store/recall settings across the entire desk or only within certain strips. And with Control Groups, you can control any number of faders from a single strip

Connect to the world

Route and patch audio using industry-standard MADI connectivity, a very stable and robust AES-sanctioned format that delivers up to 64 digital audio channels (at 24-bit, 48kHz) along a single coaxial cable.

S5 Fusion includes an I/O interface that provides four MADI inputs and outputs (256 x 256 audio channels), and can be expanded to support up to 512 audio I/O channels. Because the system is modular, you can customize your I/O with a full range of high-quality Avid converters—both analog and digital—to meet your needs now and in the future.
