Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID) today announced that leading sound companies around the world are embracing the recently announced VENUE | S6L live sound system, with significant orders already placed ahead of its formal shipping date. Sound Image (USA), Spectrum Sound (USA), Solotech (Canada), SSE (UK), Sunphonix (Japan), Johnson Audio Services (Australia), and others are expecting significant customer demand for VENUE | S6L, based on the system’s unprecedented processing, flexible modularity to meet the requirements of any live production, and historic strength of VENUE live systems for tours and festivals.
“We are already seeing high demand for VENUE | S6L, and it hasn’t even been officially released,” stated Dave Shadoan, President of Sound Image. “After seeing the prototypes, Sound Image placed a significant opening order to make sure that we receive some of the very first consoles off of the line. We truly believe that this system will be a game changer. It’s an incredibly powerful product with an ergonomic design that engineers want to see. We are impressed to say the least.”
Alex Penn, Sales Director at SSE Audio Group in the UK commented, “We are really impressed with what we’ve seen so far from the VENUE | S6L. In developing the specification and design, Avid combined the best aspects from their own range with new advancements based on research into the digital console market, and then brought it together in the S6L package.”
