Control surface features
Accelerate your mixing
Though it functions like a traditional analog surface, S5 Fusion provides greater efficiency and ease. Each channel strip includes a multiformat motorized fader, as well as eight touch-sensitive, color-coded knobs, making it easy to adjust EQ, dynamics, Aux sends, panning, and plug-in parameters. Get complete control of your mix and monitoring using the master module. And get instant visual feedback on your levels, 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. Just save 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 a fully digital console, S5 Fusion is designed with Total Automation for high-precision mixing. Dynamically automate changes to almost every console parameter to timecode, including volumes, EQ, pans, Aux sends, and dynamics. Write automation changes the instant you touch a fader or knob, with all moves shown on the displays during playback. You can even write automation in small sections to handle detailed post work, or as continuous moves throughout project playback.
Jump to different mix states
Freely experiment without fear of commitment. Or isolate specific channels for easier fine-tuning. With S5, you can store any current console setting as a SnapShot for recall at any time, making it easy to revisit any previous mixing state. Save every setting across all channels, a single channel, or just the EQ or pan settings on a single channel. You can save up to 240 SnapShots per title (project), all of which will be accessible whenever you reload it.
