The celebrated hallmarks of Avid live systems
There are many reasons why engineers, artists, and sound companies have made Avid their top choice for live sound, including unprecedented sound quality and clarity, seamless Pro Tools integration, direct plug-in support, and proven reliability.

Go the distance with the Stage 48 remote I/O box
With Stage 48, which comes with 32 inputs and 16 outputs in the SC48 Remote System configuration, you can place your I/O anywhere—up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the console, and closer to your sources for maximum fidelity. And because it features fully redundant, auto-switching Ethernet AVB snake connections over inexpensive, lightweight 350 MHz Cat5e cable (which connects to SC48 via the Ethernet Snake Card, you get the utmost reliability—without bulky cable clutter. You can also expand and customize the I/O for your needs.
Plug-ins—studio-quality sound at your fingertips
Forget sidestepping around racks of outboard gear or external plug-in “runners.” All Avid live sound systems support plug-ins, so you can re-create the same sounds that artists covet in the studio, live. SC48 Remote Systems come with a high-quality collection of core plug-ins. Expand your creative mixing palette even further with the largest collection of audio plug-ins from Avid and some of the best audio designers in the industry—including believable emulations of modern and vintage hardware processors.
Pro Tools multitrack recording—built inSC48 features a built-in Pro Tools interface, making it easy to record and play back up to 32-track sessions. Simply connect a computer (sold separately) running Pro Tools software (included), and VENUE Link syncs your live mixing and recording rigs together, enabling you to control them as one. And with Virtual Soundcheck, you can fine-tune mixes—sans band—using tracks recorded from a previous performance.
VENUE software—learn once, take command of all
