Experience unprecedented power
From Broadway to broadcast, many live shows require hundreds of channels. With the VENUE | E6L engine, you have the power to support over 300 processing channels. The real-time processing engine handles all routing, channel, and mixing functions. The HDX-powered DSP engine manages all plug-in processing, with full automatic delay compensation, so you can create bigger, better sounding mixes—with no round trips to external servers. Simply put, it outperforms the competition—hands down.
Achieve pristine sound—live
VENUE systems have always been respected for their unprecedented sound quality. The clarity. The warmth. S6L is no different—yet it totally is. And it starts at the source. To handle stage connections, the Stage 64 rack features an all-new high-performance preamp design. So you can present even higher quality mixes, with incredible presence.
Expand your creativity
Mix with the same sound processors used in top studios to get the sounds you want. Or re-create an artist’s signature studio sound live. Because S6L directly supports Avid and third-party 64-bit AAX DSP plug-ins, you’ll have far more creative choices at your fingertips than any other live mixing system. Plus, you’ll be able to use way more plug-ins in your mix, thanks to the system’s dedicated, scalable HDX-powered DSP processing.
Create your dream system
You wouldn’t use the same setup to mix a music festival as you would a club tour. That’s why S6L is both modular and scalable, so you can configure your system for the show at hand. Choose from three control surfaces to meet your needs. Select the ideal E6L engine to support your channel count requirements. And go beyond a maximum 64 mic inputs with one Stage 64 by connecting additional I/O racks.

Have peace of mind
VENUE | S6L not only delivers road-tested, industry-proven reliability, it offers the highest level of service and support in the biz. Even when on the road or in the most extreme environments. All S6L systems now come with three years of Avid Advantage Elite Live support, giving you the highest priority care whenever you need help, 24x7. From ultra-fast response times, to same-day hardware exchange shipping, we’ve got you covered so your show always goes on.
Choose your ins and outs
Customize one or more Stage 64 racks with the I/O you need. You can stock each with up to 64 inputs and 32 outputs. Choose from a variety of analog and digital I/O, including mic/line XLR, AES/EBU, and ADAT connectivity. You also have additional I/O built into the control surface for added flexibility, including 8x8 analog I/O, 8x8 AES I/O (4 pairs), two headphone outputs, MIDI I/O, and GPIO.
Connect with everything
S6L offers extremely reliable Ethernet AVB connectivity across all system components—no matter how long the cable runs. Put an end to expensive, bulky analog snakes. Use lightweight, inexpensive Cat5e cables for runs up to 100 meters. Or use fiber-optic cable for longer runs up to 500 meters. Need to connect to MADI or Dante devices? Just add option cards to integrate S6L into your existing environment.
Forget fussing with bulky analog splits. You can share the same I/O across multiple networked S6L systems—without any loss of audio quality. This alone can save you thousands by reducing I/O and cable requirements, set-up time, and transportation costs. Plus, True Gain technology automatically manages gain compensation to ensure the proper signal levels in each engineer’s mix.
Mix monitors with ease
Help artists deliver great performances. S6L makes it easy to handle dozens of monitor mixes on the fly. Get one-touch access to any mix on the faders, whether in-ear, a wedge, or backline. Integrate Aviom personal monitoring systems over Dante. Monitor two independent stereo solo busses, which can be assigned to a cue belt pack and/or listen wedge. Plus, get two built-in headphone jacks for local monitoring.
