Avid Pro Tools | S3 Control Surface Studio (Demo Deal)

Compact 16-fader control surface that works with Pro Tools and other EUCON-enabled DAWs for recording and mixing music and audio post projects
MFR# 9900-65399-03

Product Description

Smaller Console, Bigger Sounds

Following in the footsteps of the Pro Tools | S6, the brand new Pro Tools | S3 condenses the formula of the former into a compact control surface that is streamlined for modern workflows. With a lower price tag than other desktops, the S3 will fit easily into studios of all shapes and sizes, while still offering maximum power, efficient controls and an ergonomic set-up.


Optimal Control Over Avid Products

Built by the makers of some of the world’s best audio software, the Pro Tool | S3 allows users to deeply immerse themselves in the world of EUCON-enabled Avid applications and programs from other companies. The console gives users the ability to seamlessly flow through the recording and mixing process with easy transitions from tracking, recalling snapshots, muting tracks, editing plug-ins and so much more.


The Make Up Of An Amazing Console

In the tradition of other Avid desks, the S3 offers unbelievable DAW integration and intuitive controls that helps perfect your studio’s workflow. The console features 16 channel strips with motorized faders, 32 touch-sensitive rotary encoders and impeccably crisp OLED displays that make adjustments that much easier. As for connectivity, the S3 offers 2 XLR mic/line inputs, 2 XLR outputs, 2 TRS line inputs, 2 TRS line outputs and a headphone output.


Mixing The Way You Want To

Thanks to EUCON technology, mixing via Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic Pro and other DAWS, is extremely simple and customizable. You can mix the way that you want to mix by creating up to 12 different custom mixer layouts and easily recall them at any time. Changing the way you move from recording and mixing different instruments, it’s now possible to have specific mixer settings for a specific use and have it preset for your disposal.


A Legacy Of Innovation

As an industry leader for nearly 30 years, Avid has written the rule book on digital audio and the S3 is the continuation of that legacy. Packed with the latest technology, which has proven its worth time and time again in the world’s best recording studios, the S3 makes creating incredible recordings attainable for anyone.


What’s included:

  • Pro Tools | S3 control surface
  • EuControl software activation (requires download)

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
