Avid D-Control 32 to S6 M40 32-5-D Exchange

Upgrade your Avid D-Control 32 to an Avid S6 M40 32-5-D
MFR# 9920-65308-00

Product Description

For over 20 years, Avid® has led the way in mixing innovation, and now it redefines it once again with the all-new S6 Control Surface. Leveraging the best of the industry-leading ICON and System 5 product families in a revolutionary new modular design, S6 delivers superior ergonomics and intelligent studio control, providing an intuitive, immersive experience for the modern sound engineer. And because it’s built on proven technology, trusted by top audio professionals in the most demanding production environments, Avid S6 delivers the performance you need to complete projects faster and deliver the best sounding mixes possible.

Standard Configuration

S6 M40-32-5-D: 32 faders, 5 knobs per channel and TFT displays

 

Revolutionary modular design

S6 is built to grow with you at every stage of your business—now and in the future. With a first-of-its-kind modular design, you can customize the surface with the modules you need to match your current workflow for the greatest cost efficiency, and scale the surface—horizontally and vertically—as your business grows. Choose a pre-configured S6 M10 or S6 M40 surface with the options you need or, with S6 M40, customize the surface even further with different channel control combinations.

Mix smarter with superior ergonomics

S6 acts and feels like a physical extension of your software, providing a truly intuitive and immersive experience. Turn around projects faster with high-precision editing and mixing control at your fingertips. Quickly access and edit plug-ins, surround panning, and more with the multipoint touchscreen. And see every detail of your mix with unprecedented visual feedback, including waveform scrolling.

Get intelligent studio control

Experience the deep DAW control that only Avid can deliver. Pair S6 with Pro Tools and you gain the Avid advantage of faster workflows, extended visual feedback, and unique features to accelerate your efficiency every step of the way. And extend your control to Logic Pro, Nuendo, and other EUCON™-enabled DAWs, enabling you to mix projects on multiple workstations simultaneously and switch out sessions in seconds—all from a single control surface.

Proven and trusted technology

S6 delivers incredible workflow acceleration, highly responsive handling, and deep DAW integration—all built on proven technology, trusted by top audio professionals in the most demanding production environments. The result: you get the exceptional, dynamic performance you need to deliver your best sounding mix possible—on time, every time.

Extensive visual feedback

From top-lit status knobs and the master touchscreen, to monochrome OLEDs throughout the surface and optional high-resolution screens, you get the critical visual insight you need to mix with complete confidence and speed.

Touchscreen control

With the multipoint master touchscreen, featured on the S6 M40 and M10 core engines, you can quickly view, access, and edit different aspects of your mix—from tracks and plug-ins, to surround panning and metering—without having to mouse through menus.

Deep Pro Tools control

From recording tracks and assigning and editing plug-ins, to viewing scrolling waveforms (on S6 M40 surfaces with a Display Module), writing automation, recalling snapshots, and more, S6 offers the deep Pro Tools integration that only Avid can provide.

Full EUCON support

In addition to Pro Tools, you can take control of Apple Logic Pro, Steinberg Cubase and Nuendo, Merging Pyramix, and other EUCON-enabled audio workstations, individually or simultaneously, for maximum flexibility.

High-speed Ethernet connectivity

S6 features EUCON Ethernet connectivity to communicate deeply and directly with Pro Tools and other popular DAWs. And because the surface is networked, it’s easy to configure, scale, and reconfigure at whim.

Multi workstation support

Control up to eight EUCON-enabled audio workstations and media applications, simultaneously, anywhere on your network—even systems across the facility—with incredible responsiveness.

Total peace of mind

All S6 control surfaces include one year of Avid ExpertPlus support with Hardware Coverage, which includes 7x24 access, priority phone support, advance hardware exchange (next-day), complimentary S6 software upgrades, and more to keep you up and running.

Avid S6 Highlights

Customize the surface with only the modules you need for great cost efficiency Scale the system from mid- to large-format to match your workflow, with room to grow Mix faster and easier with intelligently designed controls, touchscreen, and intuitive layout Access and manipulate multiple aspects of your mix through the master touchscreen See your mix in a whole new way with detailed visual feedback and professional metering Get the deep, integrated Pro Tools® mixing control only Avid can provide Extend your control to Logic Pro, Nuendo, and other EUCON™-enabled DAWs Experience highly responsive, precision control with high-speed EUCON connectivity Control up to eight audio workstations simultaneously—even from across the facility Configure, scale, and reconfigure the surface easily through the Ethernet network Master modules - The control surface engines Master modules are the central hubs of your S6 surface. All surfaces must include a main engine, which provides touchscreen access and control; you have a choice between two—S6 M40 or S6 M10. The S6 Automation Module complements both, providing controls for transport, automation, and more. Here’s a closer look at these modules.

M40 vs. M10

The engine you choose dictates the total number of modules you can include in your S6 and impacts its overall size and customizability. Choose the high-performance M40 for large-scale productions that require maximum channels, high-resolution metering screens, and customizability, or the more affordable M10 for productions that need to fit into smaller rooms and budgets.

Both feature a tilting 12.1-inch multipoint touchscreen, eight adjacent rotary encoders, and dedicated knobs and keys for monitoring and global control, enabling you to view, access, and edit different aspects of your mix—such as tracks, processing, and metering—without mousing through menus.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
