Please note: The VENUE | S3L-X system has been discontinued and replaced by Avid VENUE | S6L, a unified platform that enables you to configure components and scale the perfect setup to meet the needs of any live sound production and environment.

We will continue to offer support for your S3 control surface and Stage 16 rack. However, support for your E3 engine will only be provided through September 30, 2023—get more details here. Thank you for choosing Avid—we appreciate your continued support.
