Product Description

The Avid Pro Tools | S3 Control Surface is a versatile control surface that offers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools and other DAWs. Based on the award-winning Pro Tools | S6 control surface, Pro Tools | S3 delivers a more streamlined interface in a compact, affordable package. Perfect for solo musicians working on small or mobile setups, recording studios looking to speed up their workflow and post-production facilities managing massive projects, Pro Tools | S3 has everything you need to create better projects, faster. Plus, you can pair it with Pro Tools | Dock and the Pro Tools | Control app to extend your workflow further.


With 16 touch-sensitive, motorized faders at your fingertips, you can control any aspect of your mix. Record-enable tracks, solo or mute channels, and navigate projects with lightning-speed using the touch strip transport controls. Pro Tools | S3 lets you play your DAW like an instrument. Tweak parameters, write automation, and make edits like second nature.


View, access, and adjust multiple parameters simultaneously using 32 touch-sensitive, push-button style rotary encoders. Adjust inputs, inserts, sends, groups, and more with channel control encoders. Or use the second row of assignable channel encoders separately to control plugins, panning and more. Keep an eye on view names, settings, status, channel metering, and more using 32 built-in OLED displays.


Pro Tools | S3 features a built-in 4-input, 6-output AVB Core Audio interface, allowing you to record and monitor from a single device. Simply connect S3 to your Mac to record directly to Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, and other DAWs. And with EUCON technology, you can also customize the surface for your needs. Create up to 12 custom mixer layouts for different task, such as recording vocals, editing drums, or mixing stems.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
