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
Automate with precision
As S5 Fusion is a fully digital console, it’s designed with Total Automation for high-precision mixing. You can dynamically automate changes to almost every parameter on the console to time code, including volumes, EQ, pans, Aux sends, dynamics, processor in/out, and fader on/off... With motorized, touch-sensitive controls, you can write changes the minute you touch a fader or knob, with all automation moves displayed on the unique illuminated displays during playback, and automation statuses displayed on the dedicated LEDs. Each switch that can be automated has its own automation punch key. Use the dedicated automation keys in the center of the console to select objects for automation and the object status. You can write automation in small discrete sections to handle detailed post work, or as continuous moves throughout the length of your project.
Jump to different mix states
Freely experiment without fear of commitment, or isolate specific channels for easier fine-tuning. With SnapShot Recall, you can store all current console settings as a SnapShot for recall at any time, making it easy to jump to any past mixing state of one or multiple channels... You can choose and later edit the parameters in any given SnapShot—from saving every setting across all channels, a single channel, or maybe just the EQ or pan settings on a single channel—and name them for easy identification. You can save up to 240 SnapShots per Title (project), all of which will be accessible whenever you reload that Title.
