VENUE 3 Software

When it comes to mixing live sound, having the tools you need to present the highest quality audio possible—quickly, easily, and reliably—is of the utmost importance. VENUE software enables you to speed up all aspects of live mixing and recording—no matter which Avid live sound system you use. That's because easy-to-use VENUE software is the common platform across all Avid live sound systems, making mixing the creative and rewarding experience it was meant to be.

VENUE software and the new S3L System

The S3L System features a different architecture than our current live sound systems. Because of this, the S3L uses a newer version of VENUE software.

To see what VENUE software offers to this system, visit the S3L System page.
