build your own Avid s6

S6 can be completely customized with up to 46 total modules, including faders, knobs, high-res displays, and other options. See what's available below, then speak with our experts to configure the perfect surface for your unique workflows and mixing needs.


Avid S6

The Control Surface Engine

All S6 surfaces include the Master Touch Module (MTM), which provides touchscreen access and control. It features a tilting 12.1-inch multipoint touchscreen, eight adjacent rotary encoders, and dedicated knobs and keys, providing touch and tactile control of plugins, monitoring, soft keys, and more. A single MTM supports up to 64 faders. To handle large-scale post-production mixes, you can install up to three MTMs to support a 3-operator workflow.


Master modules are the central hubs of your S6 surface. The S6 Automation Module complements the Master Touch Module, providing controls for transport, automation, and more. The other two are options to accelerate surround and post workflows.

S6 Automation Module

Navigate and automate projects with ease. The Automation Module is an optional add-on, though you'll probably want one. It features a full transport control section, including a shuttle/jog wheel. It also offers a focus fader, automation control, color shortcut displays and switches, a numeric keypad, and more for writing automation and navigating projects.

S6 Joystick Module

Get the control you need to mix surround sound projects. This option offers dual touch-sensitive joysticks, 3.2-inch TFT and OLED displays, two LED top-lit encoders, 16 panning mode switches with color LEDs, and other switches to position sound, control divergence, and more. Plus, it can be used to control any other knob parameter on S6 to create a wide range of effects.

S6 Post Module

Complete post projects faster. With this sound mixing/monitoring option, you can switch between recorded tracks/stems and their inputs and punch into record. It offers two rows of 10 PEC/DIRECT paddles, each with solo and mute buttons and an OLED to view track/stem names. Spill stems onto adjacent paddles for individual control. Create Soft Keys to perform tasks instantly. Switch between monitors and dim, cut, or fold down your mix. And with VCA support on the paddles, you can control over 200 tracks with ease.


Channel modules provide the control and feedback elements you need to create your mix—from faders and knobs, to processing and metering. All modules feature reliable, high-speed Ethernet connectivity for easy setup.

S6 Fader Module

Take control of track levels and more. This essential module features eight channel strips, each with a motorized fader, dual LED meters (with gain reduction metering), attention key, and mute, solo, select, automation,and other switches with color LEDs. Install up to eight Fader Modules in a single MTM system or up to 24 Fader Modules (192 faders) with three MTMs.

S6 Knob Module

Adjust and edit a variety of parameters. This essential module provides eight channel strips, each with four multicolor top-lit knobs paired with an OLED display for visual feedback, plus navigation switches. Each knob section also offers insert and select switches per channel with color status LEDs. Stack up to two Knob Module rows in a single 8-channel section.

S6 Process Module

This essential module works in conjunction with the Knob Module, enabling you to assign functions to any knob. It provides eight channel strips, each with an OLED display and top-lit knob to complement your Knob Module control. Assign functions using dedicated select switches for pan, inputs, EQ, dynamics, sends, and more. And expand or "spill" parameters across multiple controls on any Knob or Process Module.

S6 Display Module

Get incredible visual insight into your mix. This optional module displays detailed information and feedback, including channel names, audio meters, routing, groups, DAW affiliation, scrolling Pro Tools waveforms, and more. It features an 8-channel high-resolution TFT display and integrated single board computer. You can even change the display layout to suit your visual preferences, or turn it into a Master Meter Module to keep all Master and Bus tracks visible at all times.


For Desk or Freestanding Mixing

All modules need to be housed in a frame, whether you place S6 on a studio desk or give it a leg assembly to stand on. Depending on the number of modules you choose, your surface can range from mid- to large-format. There are a number of frame assembly items available, from a full leg assembly to create a freestanding surface, to different size frame buckets and blank panels. You can also add optional risers to the frame to raise the angle of the modules for better ergonomics.
